a foodie focus

Hola mes amis. It was a beautiful long weekend here in NYC. I’m dreaming of warmer weather, but know that once the summer heat hits, I’ll be dreaming of fall. I went here yesterday with some friends for lunch, and we all LOVED it. I feel like a lot of trendy veggie-focused casual restaurants are…

october favorites: fall squash

Joanna over at A Cup of Jo is currently focusing on different topics pertaining to NYC. I couldn’t help but pass along her cute post about hailing a taxi, and I must say I laughed aloud at some parts. I love that she mentioned that New Yorkers do not make any facial expressions when hailing a taxi.  Liev…
