New York Eats (Weekend Round-Up)

I’ve only been to NY for work so I was due for an actual trip back, and what better excuse than to go celebrate my sister’s birthday? Since it was freezing, we spent most of our time keeping warm in coffee shops and eating almost every hour.

Pier Market

Pier Market is the first 100% SF green business certified restaurant and the first on the entire Fisherman's Wharf. They are 3rd generation family-owned, and the owner of the restaurant is the one who built Pier 39, which I found to be really cool. The seafood is 100% sustainable and delivered fresh every day. We were so impressed by these facts that we did hold some high expectations for our dining experience.

Alexander's Steakhouse San Francisco

Chef Peggy Tan and her staff curated a special tasting menu for us that evening, which showcased a few of their most popular dishes and a couple of unique staples like the hamachi shooters, that are given as starters. Throughout the night, each course became more engaging in flavors and presentation. No two dishes tasted the same and each one left us anxiously waiting to see what the Chef had up next.

Café 21

Gaslamp is often known for party central, but did you know it is also home to one of the cutest and most delicious cafes in town? Café 21 is located right across from one of my favorite bars, Tipsy Crow, and features live music and a fun happy hour menu. However, we visited on a Saturday morning in search of brunch and are now marking this as a must-visit every time we’re in town.

My 3 Favorite Cafés in Ho Chi Minh

Vietnamese coffee, you either love it or hate it, depending on if you think it's too strong. I had my first sip at age 8 and have never looked back. However, I don't need coffee to "survive" as I'm pretty much immune to caffeine at this point. Instead, I consider my morning cup, my mid-day coffee breaks, and after dinner lattes a way to relax and unwind. The smell of coffee just makes me happier, which is probably why my boyfriend always asks if I want coffee when I'm being a bitch (hah).

Kendall's Brasserie

Extend the night out or start it off with a French restaurant in Los Angeles, that's located right by the Music Center. Kendall's Brasserie is a gem that I just discovered and fell in love with, from the lively bartending staff to the high quality, consistent service given throughout the meal. It is my new recommended date night spot for those looking for a place that has excellent Instagrammable worthy entrees that is full of flavor.

Aroha, New Zealand Cuisine

Located in Westlake Village is Aroha, a restaurant that flies the majority of their seafood and meats directly from New Zealand. Yes, it's that authentic and yes, it is extremely fresh and you can taste it. 

Chef Thomas was not only humble and welcoming, he was also very sweet in throughly explaining what each dish was and the process of creating such tasteful entrees. He also adjusted all dishes for my lactose intolerant self, which was much appreciated.
