Dear Food Diary:
This summer I couldn’t make it to Maine for the ultimate crustacean feast, but Red Hook Lobster Pound brought it to me…well, sorta… in Brooklyn…

Live lobsters steamed to order. It’s summer eatin’ every season here, where the tables are wooden, the bibs are hanging and getting your hands dirty is a must.

LE BERNARDIN: One of my favorite meals of 2011… (pre-renovation)

Dear Food Diary:
I visited Le Bernardin right before their renovations earlier this year. Regardless of the new decor and trendy bar menu, the food and service I read, remain untarnished. As I looked back at this tasty and exciting year, this dinner was without a doubt top of the list and one I’ll surely remember.

Dear Food Diary:
Delighted to find out the Red Hook Lobster Pound’s Truck was in midtown today. Though we had to cross town in what feels like 90 degree weather, in the end, it was well worth it.

THALASSA: Greek and Mediterranean in Tribeca

Dear Food Diary:
A couple Tuesdays ago, I was invited to a press dinner at Thalassa. If you’ve seen my list of restaurants, you’d notice Greek and Mediterranean is somewhat absent, so I welcomed the invitation with an open tummy.

MAREA: Cucina del Mare. 1 of my best meals 2010

Dear Food Diary:
My last quarter of 2010 had very high highs and deep lows. With that came a cut down on blogging, which lead to falling behind on my posts. I did a food-retrospect today (through notes + photos) and Marea stood out as one of my best meals of last year. One I’ll definitely want to repeat in 2011.
