5 Notes

Katz’s Delicatessen is a rooted establishment located in the Lower East Side of Manhattan since 1888.  The deli is famous for their smoked meats (pastrami and corned beef sandwiches) and hot dogs. They are also famous for a particular scene in the romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally.
You are handed an orange ticket when you walk in.  Don’t lose this ticket as this is how your tab is tallied.  If you lose the ticket, you’ll be charged $50 for a “lost ticket fee”. Hand in your blank ticket even if you don’t eat. 
Tables along the walls are for waiter service; though it is much more fun to stand on line behind one of the counters and watch your carver build your sandwich.  They will usually give you a small sample of the meat.  Also be sure to tip your carver! He might give you a few extra pieces. 
Other favorites are liver and onions and a hot bowl of matzo ball soup. Want breakfast at midnight?  Try their tongue sandwich with fried egg. 
Open until 2:45AM on weekends, we found that it’s a great place to stop by after a night of bar hopping in the LES.

Guacamole Burger from Red Robin
…eehhh….
Call me picky or having high standards, but I didn’t like it.  It was juiceless and flavorless.

Went to Fat Burger to fix my week long burger craving. I had the small burger which is a 2.5oz patty with everything on it except for cheese. Sweet relish gave it a nice kick. Yummy!

Yakitori Taisho
Busy and small yakitori joint located on St. Mark’s Place in the East Village.  If you’re adventurous, try their grilled chicken skin, chicken liver, quail eggs, smelt, chicken gizzards, squid, etc. Also recommend the Mentai Potato, french fries with spicy cod roe and mayo sauce.  They only open at 6PM and tend to fill up pretty quickly.

My company had our Christmas party this past Thursday.  Yes, Christmas party in November! It’s because this is the last week where all of us will be present at the same time. We had our Christmas lunch party at Hundred Acres restaurant located Soho. I had the steak & frites for my main course. The steak was tender and wonderfully marbleized. The seasoned frites were also excellent. I washed my meal down with their Gewurztraminer grape juice, citrus, & soda spritzer-very delicious! Finally, I polished off the meal with 3 scoops of Lemon Basil Sorbet. It was a very nice party with good food, lots of drinks, and secret santa gifts!

Brunched at Sapaonack Bar & Grill this weekend.  The food was good and portions are generous. The herbed shoestring french fries are amazing! I would like to come back to try their regular menu which features many seafood dishes.
