This blog primarily features my thoughts, comments, and feedback about restaurants I have eaten at in New York and other places throughout the world. My feelings are truly from the gut. I will give it to you as I see it.

Also, from time to time, since the restaurants I visit may be in interesting cities, or near interesting landmarks, I may share my thoughts about hotels or other travel related inspirations.

Lastly. I love to cook, grill, bake, chop, marinate and measure so I will most certainly feature something that I have cooked, grilled, or baked or chopped – could be the lobsters I grill almost every summer or the cookies that I bake for Christmas – I hope that you enjoy the images and find the content helpful!

I look forward to all your comments!
