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 or if you have more questions, visit the NYCNomNom FAQs

So without further ado, enjoy nomming.

Tick Tock Diner

The Tick Tock Diner is a famous staple in the Penn Station/Madison Square Garden area. I have passed it at least a hundred times, but never made my way in. While trying to find a quick bite before a movie, Mike and I decided that we would try it for brunch.

Now I’m born and raised in New Jersey, so I have certain expectations for diners that have never quite been met in New York City. The Tick Tock Diner was probably one of the worst of the worst.

I ordered the ham and cheese omelet and Mike got an Italian omelette with sausage and cheese. Both were bland and hardly worth the calories. 

But the absolute worst part of the meal was by absolutely no doubt, the grits.  I’m not a huge grits fan to begin with, but this tasted like gritty glue:
