PUNCH RESTAURANT 

Once the snow melts and the flowers begin to bloom you know where to find me. Out searching for new restaurants & brunch spots to try out. What a random find this restaurant was, during my search on Instagram I came across this little spot called Punch. Punch is located in the lower east side of Manhattan & what caught my eye was the deal on drinks! This place was nice & intimate. The Waiters were very friendly & refilled my glass when needed. I give the food a B+ & please don’t get the grits.

Take a look Below to see my Plate & some Pics.

This little cutie’s name is Lily….I randomly said I wish I had a doggy to pose with & this nice women said I can use her dog. ❤

BOURBON STREET BAR & GRILL

In Love is not even the phrase I want to use to describe my feelings for this dish below. Ever since my friend had his Birthday dinner here I’ve been hooked. The Cajun Chicken, Shrimp, & Sausage pasta is my FAVORITEEE!!!!! There were so many tasty flavors in this pasta. This pasta beats out by far the Cajun pasta I had at Oceana in New Orleans, which is GREAT for me since it’s more accessible 🙂

If you knew better you’ll do better. Now Please Everyone Try Bourbon Street Out!!!!!

SLATE NYC 

A few weeks ago, I was invited out to a restaurant called SLATE. I’m always down to try new places, so I was ecstatic to try SLATE out. Happy Hour is from 6 pm – 8 pm with $4/$6 drinks, really can’t beat that deal. I had my eyes on the ‘O.G. Sliders’ since my friend told me about this place; which by they way were really savory. This establishment came equipped with games like scrabble, connect four, pool, & ping pong; which are extra fun when intoxicated. Definitely a place worth trying out.

WEEKEND IN ALBANY

Last weekend I made a trip up to Albany to see some of my closest friends. My Besties and I are rarely altogether at the same time, so Aisa & I decided to spend the weekend in Albany. Even though one Bestie was M.I.A we had a Great time.

We  party’d it up at Washington Tavern & few other bars. The highlight of my weekend was Sky Zone, the Cheesecake Factory & this super cute brunch spot called Risotto. Check It Our Below!

I Never really ate dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, normally I just order their famous Cheesecake. Since it was my first time ordering an entree, I kept it safe & went with what I love which is PASTA. I ordered the ‘Faralle with chicken roasted garlic,’ & it was DELICIOUS!!!

I definitely love me a good brunch & Risotto was a great choice. The mimosas weren’t the strongest but they did the job. I had the ‘Chicken & Waffles,’ it was so delectable. The boneless fried chicken was so crispy & the waffle was so fluffy. LOVED IT!!!!

 

Jacob’s Pickles 

Jacob’s Pickles was unbelievably excellent !!! All I thought about the next morning was how much I wanted to eat my left overs, Fat girl problems or What?

As an appetizer, my table & I agreed on ordering the “Poutine.”I had no clue on what that consisted of, but I was open to try it. I can best describe “Poutine,” as a mountain load of French Fries.That melts in your mouth & was smothered in gravy & lots of cheese. For dinner I had the St. Louis Ribs. SOOOO, SOOOOO GOODDDDDDD!!!!!!!! My beef ribs were very tender & juicy. Falling all off the bone just how I love ’em. *I normally stick to pork ribs* The St. Louis Ribs were served with German styled creamy garlic flavor mash potatoes. As a consumed my delicious plate, I sipped on about three maybe four “Jam Jars,” which were sweet with a small sour kick.

You MUST try this place out if you haven’t all ready !! Enjoy !!

FLOR DE MAYO

Over the weekend I traveled to the upper west sides’ famous “Flor De Mayo.” This is a well known Chino-Latino restaurant, one of the few remaining in NYC as I was told. An blend of Chinese, Peruvian, & Latino cuisine in one place, what more could you ask for ! The food was good but them drinks……….AH-MAZE-ING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Check it out they have two locations in the city.

SOCO Punch was everything I could ever ask for plus more!!! A little pricey but it was well worth it. Very tasty & yet still strong. My assumption is with about three of these you will be LITTTY!

Chicken & Broccoli with Garlic sauce.

230 Fifth & Tao Downtown

My fab 25th was on December 27th & my besties decided to surprise me & take me to 250 Fifth. I had no clue where I was going. Walking into the establishments I felt like I was inside of a hotel. The elevator had a vibrant violet light which caused for a perfect selfie moment. I’ve seen this place on Facebook & I was very pleased with the results. I kept it simple with a classic well done burger & it was to die for😋. The meat was very juicy & the brioche bun was nice & soft. I am reliving the moment as I type. The demeanor of the restaurant reminded me of the fancy nightclub, with abstract couches & high rise views. The seating arangments were very cool & unique. There was even heated igloos on the rooftop. I would defiantly go back to this restaurant.

I had my birthday dinner at Tao Downtown & it was very good ! At Tao I felt like I was at a very upscale club/restaurant. Loved the Asian sculptures and grand staircase. Everyone got the Pan Thai dish which had tofu & mushrooms in it. Surprisingly I loved it ! Great place to go to at least one time.
