FOOD: My Current Food (and Drink!) To-Do List

Lately I feel like I haven’t been trying anything new, food-wise. I have my go-to spots and I keep pulling from the same list. But in an effort to branch out and escape the winter rut we find ourselves in, I have discovered four new places to me that I can’t wait to try.

Jadis – 42 Rivington Street (Lower East Side)

This wine bar is exactly what I need right now. It’s a cozy and unpretentious wine bar on the Lower East Side. I need to get myself over here ASAP and stop drinking wine in my apartment just because I’m lazy.

Ruffian Wine Bar – 125 East 7th Street (East Village)

Notice a theme here? This is another wine bar I have been meaning to try for a while now. And I have no excuse not to because it is literally a block away from my apartment. Next week, I’m there. And they have five stars on Yelp which, yes, means a lot to me.

Denino’s – 93 Macdougal Street (Greenwich Village)

This is the place I’m most excited to try. I am and will forever be the greatest lover of pizza there is so the fact that I haven’t been here yet is a bit upsetting. And now I don’t even have to go to Staten Island. Win.

Il Posto Accanto – 190 East 2nd Street (Alphabet City)

As if it wasn’t already totally apparent, I love Italian food and wine. And Il Posto Accanto is the perfect find in Alphabet City for an underrated but delicious restaurant. Next time I’m drawing a blank on where to go, this is where I’ll end up.
