RECAP: Ever eat on a frisbee before? Governor’s Island was full of tents chock full o’ food on Saturday. Our favorites? Definitely the Chocolate Bouchons from Bouchon Bakery, The Blackberry Rose Pops from People’s Pops, and the Ham and Cheese sammich from Gramercy Tavern. We loved how Eco-Friendly the waste was. Enough of what we think, onto the mouth-watering pictures… PICS HERE
RECAP – Just got back from the Nomfest. There were almost 50 food vendors present on this brisk day. As expected, the Surf N’ Turf booths fared better than others, with lines amassing 30+ at any given time. We caved and tried a little of everything, but mostly land and sea creatures as well. Fizzy Lizzy, Kitchenette, and Ciao Bella were on hand for drinks and desserts. PICS HERE
Here’s what we ordered…
Sequoia – Cold Seafood Salad ($6)
Sequoia – 4 Jump Shrimp Cocktail ($5)
Mark Joseph’s Steakhouse – Bobby O. Mini Burger ($3)
Mark Joseph’s Steakhouse – Sizzling Canadian Bacon ($3)
SouthWestNY – Acapulco Ceviche, Tostones (fluke, shrimp) ($6)
Adjacent left of The Emerald Green, a Glenwood Residence, lies this New York outpost of the OG Restaurant in Washington, D.C. Similar menus offered antipasti as well as ‘affordable’ Italian food in a bustling Fashion District. An added bonus to this E Squared Restaurant is the integration of a GO2 Burger inside the restaurant. After Laurent Tourondel parted ways and won a recent lawsuit, it looks like the ‘BLT’ name is now being shared. We still saw omnipresent sign boards of their sister BLT restaurants. The genius of this event is that they reached out to their potential customer base, the neighborhood. With literally 20 or so residential buildings within an 8 block radius, it was the right thing to do. When we pinged people that lived inside Emerald Green, they mentioned that this was the first Social Event the building has ever thrown. Continue reading

We heard a few welcoming words by Food & Drink editor Jordana Rothman, who explained that the awards ceremony was switched up from years past: instead of a traditional awards presentation, this year tables of some of the winners and nominees set up shop with samplings of their signature dishes for guests to try. After all, what’s a foodie event without actual food? Continue reading
