Ryan Hardy and Robert Bohr are two of the most hospitable and generous people I have ever met. Paige and I worked at their restaurant, Charlie Bird this past year. CB embodies their gracious spirits and good natures. There are so many places that Paige and I will miss in NYC, but as we fly to LA, and then to Thailand, we would be remiss in not paying homage to our beloved CB and the men who make it what it is.Read More
If you have been following the “Peace NY” series you may have been wondering: isn’t Shade Market about healthy, sustainable food? Why are they posting all these greasy spoons and pizza joints? Well, those places are, for better or worse, a part of NY food culture. We seek to understand and present to you all aspects of food culture wherever we are. Today, we showcase a restaurant that is part of NYC’s new food culture.Read More
NYC is one of the most visited cities in the world. It is a city equally important for pleasure seekers, business people, and those who are looking for a new beginning. But, hell, I could wax poetic all day about the essence of NYC, here is the point: after 27 years of living here I am leaving to move across the world in just two weeks!
Anyone reading this who knows New York also knows that New Yorkers are obsessed with their spots. You know, the Chinatown spot, or the doughnut spot, the 24 hour spot. Whatever type of place it may be, over the years these places start to define our experience as much as the good friends we take there. So, in an attempt to say an appropriate goodbye to New York, I present to you the "Peace New York" series; a salute to the places in New York that I will miss dearly. In this way, I can share my spots with my good friends (you) one last time before departing.
