Pick A Bagel by UsedYorkCity.com

Dearest NYC, Be still my beating heart!  Vegan tofu veggie cream cheese that tastes like (gasp!) regular veggie cream cheese?!  And spread on those original, freshly baked bagels you’re so world renowned and loved for?!  I hate to be super selective, but I fear that after experiencing Pick A Bagel no other bagel joint in […]

Central Park by UsedYorkCity.com

Dearest NYC, Now that the weather is consistently on the up and up, Central Park and I have a standing jog date every morning.  I’m thankful she’s such a beauty, giving me excuses to pause and catch my breath snap a few pictures every few minutes. Cheers, Jess p.s. for more photo inspiration from my […]

Fika by UsedYorkCity.com

Dearest NYC, Some of your residents IV drip this stuff, and rightly so.  You can be an exhausting city at times.  Thank goodness for your kind-natured baristas that take the time to make foam hearts and other smile inducing doodles.  I think it makes it feel a lot less medicinal, wouldn’t you agree? Cheers, Jess […]

The Modern by UsedYorkCity.com

Dearest NYC, Dining in MOMA’s restaurant, The Modern, certainly promises to have aesthetically pleasing plates.  But for a dish on sensory overload, delighting the palate even more so than the eyes, order that little dish in the middle, the poached egg, porcini mushrooms, buttermilk and sorrel.  Tastebud tingles, promise! Cheers, Jess

Tin Pan Band by UsedYorkCity.com

Dearest NYC, What an unexpected treat to find my new favorite local band while walking the chichi in Central Park!  The Tin Pan Band is a delicious little mixture of twenties swing, jump, and blues, a delightful addition to the city’s springtime soundtrack…(and my iPod).  Here’s a little peak. xo, Jess

Bermuda by UsedYorkCity.com

Sunshine!  Flowers!  The return of trench coats and ballet flats!  (Can you tell someone is a little bit happy about spring finally making it’s gorgeous appearance in the Big Apple?) To kick things off we traveled to Bermuda for the long Easter weekend, an amazing little paradise and less than a 2 hour flight from […]

Dearest NYC, I’d like you to meet Louisiana Macaroni and Cheese, the dish that puts all other mac-n-cheese in the outer boroughs above the Mason Dixon Line to shame.  Sugar Freak, you’ll be seeing a lot more of me. xoxo, Jess
