Imam Bayeldi but Let’s Hope You Don’t

Did you know that summer leeks are traditional on Sephardic tables on Rosh Hashanah?  I did not.

We pray that our enemies will be "cut off", allowing for safety and security o...

Keeping it Chill (ed) for the Holiday with Rice Noodles

Keeping it Chill (ed) for the Holiday with Rice Noodles

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year,  is coming SUPER early this year. So early, that it would be wise to keep a good part of your menu cool since the weather will likely be steamy hot. I'm focused on chilled sides, even if I my family insists on my  traditional, braised  brisket as the main. 11844...

By Hannah Kaminsky Not so far from the maddening crowds of Manhattan midtown, there sits an oasis of tranquility, hidden in plain sight.

A Fresh Spin on Summer Salads at Haven’s Kitchen, NYC

A Fresh Spin on Summer Salads at Haven’s Kitchen, NYC

As the season heats up and farmers’ markets everywhere suddenly have heaping piles of crisp, rainbow hued salad ingredients to offer, I needed a little jump start to get me thinking about new combinations and uses for all those spicy greens and plump beans.

Naturally Delicious at the Lime plus Quinoa Stuffed ‘Shrooms

Naturally Delicious at the Lime plus Quinoa Stuffed ‘Shrooms

By Camillo Ferrari The vibe at the Lime restaurant in Norwalk, CT is a throwback to the late 70's. Square sheets of glass protect faded, striped umber and orange tablecloths and customers' business cards are wedged between cloth and glass. A smattering of haphazardly framed photos of early 1980's T.V. icon...

I appreciate the calm each time I tuck into Gobo, a vegetarian retreat with convenient locations in the West Village and  UES, NYC.
