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 [...]

[photo from the Boston Globe] You can’t swing a cat in Boston without hitting a historic place and The Rosebud dining car is Somerville’s claim to days gone by. Built in 1941 and featured on the National Register of Historic Places, the diner changed hands this past year and underwent a serious interior facelift. Now the Rosebud American [...]

[Photo from Puddin website] If you were to put a piece of chocolate in front of me or chips, I will 95% of the time go for the chips.  That being said, I do enjoy dessert every now and then and my new favorite thing (that’s not actually all that new) is pudding, well, rice [...]

FOOD: ‘Tis the Season: All Truffle Everything at Equinox’s Vegan White Truffle Vegan Brunch

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/PSX_20141028_172723-300x250.jpg

[Photo by Carrie Epps] Two words: truffled anglaise. One more word: vegan. Mind blown. Brunch is clearly the domain of eggs, dairy and a certain overrated, salt-cured pork product, but downtown DC’s Equinox restaurant likes to think outside the box. And the restaurant’s long-running and popular weekly Sunday vegan brunch buffet is getting a luxurious [...]

DRINK: DC’s The Gibson’s Fall Menu

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/drinkfire-300x250.jpg

When I thirst an elegant cocktail after an atypical day, I usually venture out to that hidden oasis in Old Town Alexandria or bar hop amongst those trendy themed spots on the 7th street NW.  Perusing amongst the hustle and bustle of 14th Street, I opened an unmarked door and escaped the pressures of modern [...]
