It’s been much too long, I know. I’m back and full of inspiration (and countless calories) from the phenomenal food I’ve been relishing at these incredible venues. In 2012, it’s going to be more photos, fewer words — cuz really, that’s what you want. Right?
Okay. You ready? Let’s go!

Red Rooster in Harlem. American, down home comfort food.

Buvette ‘gastroteque’ in the West Village is worth the inevitable wait.
