BITE OF THE MOMENT: The Farm on Adderley Turned Me On To Restaurant Oatmeal

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/IMG_20150117_191941-300x250.jpg

This post is more than just a Bite of the Moment – it’s a revelation. My whole life, the vast majority of my oatmeal memories have consisted of popping a paper cup full of Instant Quaker maple and brown sugar oats and a little water into the microwave before class back in college, when my [...]

FOOD: Momo Sushi [Brooklyn]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Momo-300x250.jpg

I don’t spend a ton of time in Bushwick, but after going to Momo Sushi Shack the other weekend I’m going to make more of an effort to discover the food scene there. The atmosphere of this place is quintessentially Bushwick.  Situated in an old warehouse, wooden communal tables span the small restaurant giving off [...]

DRINK: Root Cellar Whiskey Bar @ Pinea [DC]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/rcwbd-300x250.jpg

My insatiable thirst of cocktail couture recently led me to W Hotel.  Although the swanky hotel is a gem with its breathtaking views, historically this location hasn’t won over many Washingtonians when considering where to wine and dine.   But things are about to change.  Gone is J & G Steakhouse.  In its place is [...]

FOOD: Bohemian [NYC]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/bohemian2-steak-tartar1-300x250.jpg

I almost feel a bit strange writing about Bohemian, but I just have to!  The reason I feel weird is because you cannot go to this restaurant unless you go with someone who has been there before… Let me explain a little: Bohemian is a speakeasy Japanese restaurant that also happens to be members only, [...]

FOOD: A Bite of Belgium in Boston [Harvard Square]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/IMG_4256-e1421639422864.jpg

Let’s take a minute to consider the Belgian waffle. That big, fluffy breakfast food that beats frozen waffles any day with its deep pockets perfect for storing butter and syrup. Now, forget that and consider actual waffles from Belgium, a somewhat different breed. What most in the US know as a Belgian waffle would be [...]

FOOD: John’s Kitchen Café [Jersey City, NJ]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/IMG_6951-e1421296617950.jpg

This week in the lazy files, I am hesitantly sharing one of my favorite spots to order delivery from. I am not keen on the idea of increasing delivery time, but I know I can’t be selfish if I want my beloved eateries to stay alive. So I present to you, reader friends, John’s Kitchen [...]

All anyone’s really trying to do this year is curl up in a ball under the covers and do anything to avoid heading out into the blistering cold, but here’s another idea for warming up: Good Spirits, brought to you by Edible Brooklyn. Hitting the Invisible Dog Gallery this Thursday, January 22 from 6-9pm, Good [...]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/2014-12-27-05.41.09-11-300x250.jpg

Two and a half hours of driving + one spur of the moment idea + two very hungry stomachs + one extremely patient friend = our long awaited, highly anticipated trip to Phoenicia Diner. I’m a sucker for a beautifully Instagrammable spot especially one that involves one of my most favorite cuisines [diner food!]. Plop [...]

FOOD: DC’s Thip Kao

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/summerrolls-300x250.jpg

When DC was flooded with crack and known as the “Murder Capital”, “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses may have been a suitable track on the score about many of the District’s neighborhoods, including Columbia Heights.  Fast forward a few decades and the same music is still relevant but for another reason.  Chef [...]

EVENT: NYC Winter Wine Festival

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/nyc-wwf-2-300x250.png

I’m incredibly excited for the Sixth Annual NYC Winter Wine Festival this February 7th!  Last winter I became a huge fan of red wine and I’m looking forward to tasting new wines and learn more about what I should be looking for when I go into a wine shop. So come join me on Saturday, [...]

FOOD: Degustation [NYC]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/degustation-300x250.jpg

Photo from Trip Advisor It’s not news that New York is full of unique dining experiences.  Pretty much anything you can dream up, you can find here.  But if you’re looking for something really different, give Degustation a try on East 5th. Degustation is basically a tapas style restaurant where you order a bunch of [...]

DRINK: Cocktail Couture at Room 11 [DC]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/drinkroom112-300x250.jpg

Known around city for their gastronomic offerings, the libations at the neighborhood spot, Room 11 hold their own against some of the city’s better known establishments. Recently, I found myself posted up at the bar attempting to satisfy my fixation with herbal boozy cocktails and Room 11 didn’t disappoint. I’ve been known to prefer off-the-menu [...]
