Coffeehouse/Cafe - FOOD - "The Delicious" - Italian

Cafe Reggio in Greenwich Village

November 30, 2009

Cafe Reggio is said to be the oldest coffeehouse in Greenwich Village. Dating back to 1927, history seems to have trapped itself in the sometimes claustrophobic dimly-lit cafe.

The restaurant is decorated heavily with Renaissance art paintings. At the far back of the cafe sits the monstrous original espresso machine, which I learned later was once the pride and joy of the original owner, Domenico Parisi, who was said to not let anyone operate it but himself.

The Italian dishes are pretty standard, but the great thing is the portions are just right without going overboard, and the prices are very reasonable.

Happy BLACK Friday!

Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, and I really hope you’re out shopping (or coming out of post-Thanksgiving feast coma) instead of reading this.

But just in case you’re not doing either:

Chicago: Orange you hungry?

November 26, 2009

While in Chicago recently, my friend Katie and I did brunch at Orange for the first time.

Apparently, brunch foods are this restaurant’s specialty, which is a mini-chain throughout chi-town.

I tried the French Toast Kabob, which is a coconut-infused toast skewered with fresh strawberries and pineapples, topped with honey and served with coconut-mango salad. Sounded enticing enough.

Delicious mac n’ cheese at Cafeteria

November 25, 2009

(Seriously, I don’t know why I’m always in Chelsea these days either).

I was desperate for some girl time, and when I called up my friend Shahla for a quick afternoon bite, she suggested we take it to Cafeteria. This place is open 24/7 and specializes in comfort (read: so bad for you yet so good) food.

Its also probably most recognized lately for its cameo in Season One of The City. Ok fine, maybe I’m the only one who noticed that.
