[Photo from 8th Street Wine Cellar website] New York is full of cozy date spots or places to kick back with a bottle of wine.  But sometimes there can be almost too many and it might feel overwhelming.  So let me recommend one place I really enjoyed: 8th Street Wine Cellar.  Located on, well, 8th [...]

SIP OF THE MOMENT: Juicing It Up at The Butcher’s Daughter

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/2014-11-23-12.50.50-3-300x250.jpg

I like my OJ in the morning, but I had never hopped on the juice bandwagon – until today. A massive hangover this morning called for some serious damage control, so we headed to The Butcher’s Daughter for a brunch full of Instagrammable plates of smashed avocado eggs benedict, Monterey eggs, and the cream of [...]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_6265-e1416376128467.jpg

I had danced around trying Skinner’s Loft of Jersey City for months, and when I finally did, I was both happy and sad. Happy that I finally opened my taste buds to the new and wonderful possibilities, and sad that I had waited so long to do so. At first (internet based) glance, I feared [...]

FOOD: In-N-Out vs Shake Shack

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/shake-shack-burger-300x250.jpg

[In-N-Out Double Double] Shake Shack has always been one of my favorite things about living in New York but now that I’m in LA visiting my sister for a few days, all I can think about is In-N-Out.  Shake Shack who now? So I thought it would be fun, now that In-N-Out is fresh in [...]

DRINK: Whiskey in the Wintertime

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/DSC_0661-e1416195886954.jpg

Davis Square’s Saloon celebrates local whiskeys this week during the upcoming installment of their monthly whiskey class. Turns out, the Boston area has a long history with distilling and current spirits czars are still producing the hard (and tasty) stuff. From as far away as the Berkshires to as close as the city itself, there [...]

FOOD: Taqueria [Jersey City, NJ]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_6176-e1415668656716.jpg

The first time I ever set foot in a Taqueria was on the Lower East Side in NYC. I was promised a delicious margarita and tacos that I wouldn’t soon forget, and that’s exactly what was delivered; so you can imagine my delight when I learned that a second location was located only five minutes [...]

FOOD: Eating Your Way Through Dublin, Ireland

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_8217-e1415539122768.jpg

The stereotype is true. People in Ireland love to drink. The propensity to drink in this tiny island is real. There is a pub on every corner, and some people think of it as a pilgrimage to head to Ireland for a pint or a glass of whiskey. And why blame them? The country is [...]

FOOD: Andrea Salumeria [Jersey City, NJ]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_6169-e1415077036661.jpg

Andrea Salumeria sits on one of the busiest streets in Jersey City, but the location is not what keeps the customers flowing. From hungry people on their lunch break looking for a deliciously stacked sandwich to seniors who want some authentic fresh mozzarella to serve at Sunday dinner–there is always someone walking through the door [...]
