LOX & Lots More at this Museum Cafe

When I visited LOX, an unassuming cafe at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, NYC, I had an all star group of noshers with me. I was sure I could count on this crew, all food writers and chefs, to savor a selection of newly inspired old world Jewish favorites, even if it took hours,

Siggy’s Good Food & Splendid Slaw Recipe

Siggy’s Good Food & Splendid Slaw Recipe

Siggy’s Good Food sits on a tree-lined block at the quiet end of Elizabeth St. in NYC. The scribbled message on a sidewalk chalkboard beckons, ALIENS EAT FREE! I didn’t see any extraterrestrials but I bet that those in costume may indeed, eat on the house.  The quirky entrance leads streams of devoted...

Vegan Temptations by CHLOE.

Vegan Temptations by CHLOE.

An omnivore, a kosher keeper and a vegan grad student met for lunch at by CHLOE. on Bleecker St. in NYC on a balmy late Autumn day.

Moss Cafe Fuses Farm to Table with Kosher

Moss Cafe Fuses Farm to Table with Kosher

By the time owner Emily Weisberg launched her kickstarter campaign, Moss Cafe was already blinking wildly on our radar. Their mission is so clearly stated, so authentic, so pure, that we took notice many months before they opened.  We waited patiently and then gave them a few months to settle into their natu...

Swooning over Babke Swirls at Padoca Bakery

When Florence Fabricant, longtime food critic for the New York Times, mentioned a newly opened Brazilian bakery in NYC that creates guava and cheese babke swirls I was all lit up.  I guessed that the roots of  Padoca's treats, including challah french toast and black and white brownies, extended beyond S...

Petite Shell Tempts with Golden Rugelach

Petite Shell Tempts with Golden Rugelach

I heard the temptation before I inhaled it as I rounded the corner of 85th Street on Lexington Ave. in NYC.  Two young Moms clasped each other's well cloaked arms on a freezing January day and gasped, "Do you smell the butter? We've got to get one!" Indeed the alluring aromas of warm, sweet pastries and s...
