Corkbuzz Winebar Chelsea Market: Champagne, wine & good eats

Corkbuzz - tasting

Dear Food Diary:
A few weeks ago, on a rainy Saturday, I was invited to a tasting at the new Corkbuzz Winebar Chelsea Market.

Our group of foodaholic ladies sampled European inspired small plates by Chef Missy Robbins, paired with champagne and wine by Master Sommelier Laura Maniec. What a treat…

BAR AKARIBA: The perfect hideaway date

Dear Food Diary:
Sometimes not having a reservation leaves room for wonderful new findings. While in Williamsburg last time, we wanted to check out Zenkichi, but without any tables that night sans reservation, our disappointment was greeted with it’s adjacent sister Bar Akariba (sake and oyster bar).

BAHR CHE Wine, Cheese and Charcuterie: good first date spot

Dear Food Diary:
I was invited to check out the new Bahr Che last Tuesday night with a friend. The addy says 26 Astor Place, but it’s actually not ! Even between the google map on my iPhone and our good sense of direction, we were lost. Turns out, it’s right next to Chase bank. A romantically lit, but hard to find front door.
