About

NYC Nom Nom is a blog about food. Restaurants and recipes... from the good, to the bad, to the un-nommable. Recently, I joined Weight Watchers. But I refuse to give up my love for food. Join me on my journey of recipes and restaurants (whether you're dieting or not).

I am very fortunate in that I get to try many of the best restaurants in NYC. I also am realizing that I love to cook and have been expanding my culinary skills with my boyfriend, Mike. So what better way to chart my path through the world of food than with a blog?

I would not consider myself a foodie, as that moniker carries with it some level of expertise, of which I have none. I just really love food and am very lucky to have both access to good restaurants and a really great kitchen (by New York City standards anyway).

If you want to reach me, you can email me at sara@nycnomnom.com or if you have more questions, visit the NYCNomNom FAQs

So without further ado, enjoy nomming.

Mussels and Beer at Landmarc… For Free!

I know a lot of people say they don’t win anything… but I mean it.  Until this year.  I’ve been lucky in little drawings, winning dinners from FoodBuzz, and then with signing up for Circle of Taste with The Time Warner Center.  The first thing I won (yes… even more than one!) was a Mussel and Beer tasting at Landmarc.  The discription was completely vague so we had no idea what we were in for. 

Our tasting was to begin promptly at 9 and we were sat at a very low table with other winners.  The menu looked good. We could choose two mussel preparations and two beers from their list.

We could choose from light or dark beer from St. Bernadus.  I chose light, Mike chose dark.  Mine was good…

But Mike’s was GREAT.  Full, wonderful flavor. One of the best beers I’ve ever had.

We assumed we’d get a bite or two of each mussel preparation, however, they gave us HUGE tereens.  Each were a meal in itself but we got two.  And they were heavenly…

And they came with (delicious) frites!

And then… DESSERT!

This meal was SO good even if we paid for it.  Next time I know of someone that loves mussles, this is where I’m taking them.  We also got phenomenol service throughout and I was very impressed.  Their bar is very nice too.  If you need somewhere to bring a date… I think this place would be a total winner.
