Tradition and culture can be found in some  of the most unexpected places, this standing true for lox and other cured fish. What is seen as a traditional brunch menu item to some actually dates back to several different cultures and eras, yet it still gives us a delicious mash up of flavors and textures. When brunch comes around, a bagel and lox seems like the go to, but lox and other smoked fish can actually be used at dinner time as well, just ask Marcus who grew up eating smoked and cured fish in Sweden. As NPR: The Salt and The NY Times puts the spotlight on bagels and lox, transforming these items into a everyday meal, you can turn your next weekend gathering with a new delicious menu. Smoked fish like sable and trout, and accompaniments like capers, thinly sliced red onions, farmers market tomatoes, and other fresh produce are a great meal any time of the day. Read More

Within the last couple of years, the restaurant boom as hit Harlem, and I couldn’t be happier.  Several restaurants have been popping up in Harlem including Red Rooster, ranging from beer gardens, French, and even African cuisine. My favorite global import and go-to restaurant for brunch, lunch, and dinner is LIDO Harlem, a Italian restaurant located on the corner of 117th and Fredrick Douglas Boulevard, conveniently named Harlem’s “Restaurant Row”.

Named in honor of the Dutch who first came to Bruijkleen (Brooklyn), Colonie is a pioneer for the new food frontier in the Brooklyn Heights food scene. Since their opening in 2011, Colonie has been dishing out fresh, local ingredients in simple yet exquisite ways. Not to mention the décor, which when done by Public and Double Crown vets, Tamer Hamawi, Emelie Kihlstrom and Elise Rosenberg, you know it’s nothing short of perfection–from the rustic wood planked ceilings and living wall all the way down to the multi-purpose menu placemats.

New Orleans

I thought I had New Orleans pinned. In my mind it was always just the Southern metropolis party city that serves chicory coffee twenty-four hours a day. I love to travel and I have always wanted to visit New Orleans but I had never expected the city to challenged me the way others cities did. I thought I had it figured out, until I actually went there. Read More
