Fig and Olive

almost 6 years ago | Suman Thareja: Spice it up!..

Fancy and Pretty!  A little on the expensive side for what you get though has a few good dishes to try for sure.  With three locations around the city Fig and Olive manages to have presence in good parts of the city. The Mediterranean Chicken Samosas are addictive: Chicken, cilantro, Greek yogurt, bell pepper scallion […]

A bustling place for brunch in the meat packing district of NYC: Pastis Great brunch menu.  Make reservations before going – the wait isn’t something you would want to do.  If you like other sister restaurants like Balthazaar Resturant, Pravda, Balthazaar bakery, Lucky Strike you will like this one too.

Kwik Gourmet

almost 6 years ago | Suman Thareja: Spice it up!..

Its amazing how many more street food carts are popping up everywhere in cities from New York to Philly to DC and Los Angeles. One of my favorites and extremely popular with all my colleagues is the Kwik Gourmet  (a Vendy award nominee) on Park Avenue and 47th Street.  He also has a 24hour cart […]

Kash Keval

almost 6 years ago | Suman Thareja: Spice it up!..

Deli / Cheese Market in the front and lovely Wine Bar in the back.  Easily mistaken for just a Deli.  If you enjoy tapas sytle dining and like your wine Kash Keval is a must try. Its small and quaint giving you the privacy you sometimes want in a restaurant.  The lighting and ambiance is […]

Empellon

about 6 years ago | Suman Thareja: Spice it up!..

Its been a while since I added a restaurant to my ‘I will go back anytime!’ list.  Empellon made it there easily.  Alex Stupak has a really mouth watering menu and does wonders with his Mexican flavors. I got an amazing deal through thrillist (which if you haven’t use yet, you must!).  Greed for flavor […]

Use your feezer more than your fridge?

If you freezer has more food than your ‘fridge’ you want to read this article. I tend to always have home cooked goodies (usually from mom) in the freezer and this article really helped in figuring how to keep it tasting just as good as when it was freshly made. First of all – “No […]

Porto’s

On my last trip to LA my brother in law decided to wake up before everyone and make a trip to the ‘grocery store’.  Upon waking up found two ginormous boxes of deliciousness in the fridge!  Not sure if I love him or hate him for introducing me to Porto’s. … each one better than […]

The Grand

Kochi has probably some of the best food I have tasted.  Fresh, spicy, tangy and made with passion!!  Happen to be taken to The Grand Hotel by our driver and turned out to be one of the best meals of the trip. Appam this good is not hard to find in Kerela, though does get […]

Pavillion

Pavillion at ITC Maurya in Delhi has some great dining options.  Even though its in Maurya (5-star hotel) its not too formal or too casual. If everyone dining with you is in the mood for a different cuisine, its possible to satisfy all their cravings here. I recommend a tasting platter to begin with.. What […]

Le Peep

over 6 years ago | Suman Thareja: Spice it up!..

Who knew Le Peep had so many locations around the country from Colorado to Texas to New Jersey?!  They are famous for their breakfast and lunch.  The place tends to have that diner type feel which shows up in the quantity of the food as well, though I think the experience is not as casual. […]
