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.

I have been to Eatery at least half a dozen times, and it’s always a good meal. I happen to love their mac & cheese with the frizzled onions on top, however, I try not to pig out there TOO often. One thing I used to love about them were their shrimp chip-things (I call them “chip-things” because they aren’t really chips… they are more the consistency of puffed rice in a chip shape and size). Unfortunately, due to an apparent HUGE shellfish allergy problem in NYC, they have abandoned the shrimp chips and now just give out sesame seed chips. It is a big loss, however, these chips are tasty and nearly as addictive as the original.

One of our dining partners is only in the city every once in a while, so we told her to feel no guilt about getting the mac & cheese. I’m glad she did because I even got a bite!

Our other fellow diner got the burger which looked quite tasty.

I went with an appetizer special: duck ravioli. I am failing to remember the specifics, but I remember it sounded absolutely amazing and tasted good… but not great.

The winning dish was actually a last second ordered side of blue cheese mashed potatoes. This stuff was like crack!

Overall, I think Eatery is a good place to go where everyone will find something they like at a reasonable (for NYC) price (but not cheap).
