The Harrison (NYC): falafel sandwich with onion "scrambled" eggs and sriracha aioli on a brioche roll. Delicious! Falafel was crispy on the outside and the bread was super soft. I thought the eggs would throw me off but they just added a little texture and weren't too eggy. Chips were super thin and crispy but could use a little optional seasoning (they weren't seasoned at all, not even with a little salt). Plate lacked color but overall, two thumbs up!

John's of 12th Street (East Village, NYC): chicken parmigiana. Just as good as I had remembered it from 8 or 9 years ago! 2 thinly sliced pieces of chicken with just enough sauce and just enough cheese and herbs. And a slight crunch on the edges. Spaghetti was ok...could've used more sauce and sauce could've used a little more flavor. But so good overall...not waiting another 9 years to go back anymore!

David Burke Kitchen (Soho, NYC): Kitchen Burger - bacon / cheddar / jalapeno french fries. Check out that baby ketchup bottle!! Also, the burger was juicy and delicious and the fries were great too!

David Burke Kitchen (Soho, NYC): Chicken & Shrimp Market Salad - coach farm's goat cheese / bacon / warm walnuts / escarole. Yummy!! Same deal with the chicken...some fatty pieces because it's all dark meat (I'm clearly not a fan of fatty chicken) but otherwise delicious! The walnuts with the goat cheese...mmm :)

David Burke Kitchen (Soho, NYC): lobster soup with lobster dumpling and apple. Didn't try this either but heard it was good.

David Burke Kitchen (Soho, NYC): Steamed lobster and crispy shortrib dumpling duo. Didn't actually try these but heard they were delicious!

El Ranchito del Agave (NYC): avocado salad and chicken tamale combined :) light, healthy, lotttts of very fresh avocado. And I decided to eat my tamale in the salad. Added the salad dressing (a tangy regular vinaigrette) and the green tamale sauce. I ate half of it before I remembered to take a pic...oops!

Salume (NYC): roasted parmacotto sandwich with castelrosso cheese, thinly sliced beets, black pepper aioli, olive oil, and freshly ground black pepper on a baguette...YUM! The roasted parmacotto sammie is different from the summer's Cernobbio because Salume does seasonal stuff. But it's super delicious and although slightly smaller, just as/more filling. And it's on bread that doesn't blow flour in your face!!

Smyrna Mediterranean (Hell's Kitchen, NYC): Zucchini pancakes were pretty soggy/greasy so I stopped eating those after 2 bites. Maybe they're better at the restaurant itself? Don't order these for delivery!

Smyrna Mediterranean (NYC): Falafel platter was ok but could have used more veggies for the pita. The falafel itself was flat and looked dry...and was very dry. The pita was AMAZING--definitely the best part.

Shuck and Dive (Ft. Lauderdale, FL): Mississippi farm raised blackened catfish with red beans and rice and coleslaw. Had fried green tomatoes, creole lump crab spinach and artichoke dip, shrimp, and fried wings before this so was a little stuffed, but it was pretty good! Red beans and rice could've used some kick, coleslaw was ok (light on the mayo though!) :) ...fish was the best part!

Landmarc (TriBeCa, NYC): vanilla, mint chocolate chip, and coffee ice cream/gelato. AMAZING...vanilla was a solid vanilla bean. Mint choco was yum. Coffee was THE BEST coffee ice cream I have ever had, ever!

Landmarc (TriBeCa, NYC): nutella eclair. Better than the blueberry crumble but meh. Nutella center was creamy and delicious an the outside was nice and soft but I wouldn't get this again.

Landmarc (TriBeCa, NYC): blueberry crumble. Booo. Dry, dry, dry. Not worth it, even at $4.

Landmarc (TriBeCa, NYC): braised lamb shank with brussel sprouts and bacon and celery root purée. SO delicious and SO much food!! I ate most of it but holy crap, this was HUGE!! And worth it. I challenge everyone who sees this and loves meat to go after this beast.

Yuka (NYC): all you can eat sushi for $20!! You'll probably experience a wait because, well, let's be real- its NY, $20, sushi, and all you can eat. And delicious!! Best ones are Yellowtail and the salmon-tuna mix (I think? Either way, I forgot what it's called, but it starts with a T).

Ink 48's Print (NYC): semolina raisin French toast with bananas, local berries, and maple syrup. Pretty good but Print is overpriced...it's part of a hotel. Better than my meal though!

Ink 48's Print (NYC): maple bacon sticky bun. Exactly what it sounds like--delicious. Very indulgent, rich syrupy goodness on a fairly moist bun. Bacon was as crispy as it could have been. Definitely worth sharing. Too much for one person...

Hampton Chutney (SoHo, NYC): #6 masala deluxe (masala dosa with spinach, jack cheese, and tomato). I got two chutneys--tomato and cilantro. Everything was delicious but spicier than I expected. Just have to tell them next time. Peach lassi...exactly what you'd imagine. Very peachy, very lassi-y...worth a try but might be too peachy for most people.

McDonald's (everywhere): the best soft serve anywhere. I wish they still had swirl though (vanilla/choco swirled together)...I asked for it recently, and the lady looked at me like I was crazy. Clearly that person had no childhood.

Masala Times (West Village, NYC): chicken tikka masala platter. Best Indian food in the city. Comes with yellow Basmati rice, kala daal (lentil soup), paratha, and a pile of vinegar-y onion slices, which are obv the best part. I highly recommend this.

Thai Select (NYC): spicy eggplant basil. Good. Actually spicy (you can tell them to adjust)...eggplant, red/green peppers, sautéed onions, soyaki-ish sauce...overall sweet n spicy. I get it every time. Just have to watch out for the tiny chili pepper slices in there!
