Sweet Grass Grill in Tarrytown NY – a tasty train ride away!

l (2)

Sweet Grass Grill is a terrific choice for dining along Main Street in Tarrytown with the look and feel of being fancy, but it’s rather quite casual with a down home vibe. It’s a quick train ride north of Manhattan and makes for a wonderful day trip on a weekend. The town itself is quaint and historic as it’s also the home of Sleepy Hollow where Washington Irving lived and wrote the famous story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” which has been made into movies and a popular TV show which I really enjoy. Even though it is a small town there is a lot to see and do here. Mansion tours, street fairs, quality dining, and some nightlife along main street.

When we were here for a recent weekend jaunt we dropped in for dinner before heading home and grabbed a table outside since it was so nice out. The menu is not too expansive but offers a diverse selection of plates to choose from. I like that they go local and seek out farm fresh ingredients from the nearby area. Also, there are seasonal soups, salads, and a changing roster of entrees. Vegetarian options too for those non-meat eaters. In fact, they have Meatless Mondays with a special vegan tasting menu on hand. Brunch is also served, and they have a decent wine list and micro brewed beers too!

Yorkville Creperie NYC – Feta, Chocolate, Nutella, FLUFF!

Could not begin to describe how yummy this meal was. Yes, I am a guy and I said the “yummy” word as it was that good. It’s one of those meals that makes you feel as if you are eating dessert no matter what you order. Yet, that’s a good thing!

Yorkville Creperie is one of those spots in our hood on the Upper East Side NYC that we knew about but never really ventured over to. Finally decided to make a go of it. We arrived here on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It was after brunch hours and since it was a summer season weekend we had the place to ourselves at around 5PM. Grabbed a seat by the opened front windows and there was a nice breeze blowing in. Looked over the extensive menu of crepes and panini’s and decided to go with the Roma crepe – Chicken, Mozzarella and Tomato Bruschetta, in an Herb Crepe.

Hot damn! Was this good! Just the right amount to fit my appetite this afternoon. (Personally, I could have eaten two of them. Shhhhh…….) Continue reading Yorkville Creperie NYC – Feta, Chocolate, Nutella, FLUFF!

In-N-Out Animal Style Food Porn in Vegas, baby!

I know this is not NYC related, but I was just handed my hotel reservations for the next biz trip I have coming up in June. Vegas baby! The land of neon lights, gambling, drinking, gluttony, cheesiness, debauchery, and kitschy craziness! Vegas, as I have said in the past, you’re a dirty ho but I love you so. I am already thinking about where to make dinner reservations, and already I am craving this one thing that I had my last time in Sin City. 

My inner Fattasaurous won out and dragged me to In-N-Out Burger pretty much as soon as I touched down in Vegas the last time I was there in April!

After a few months of hard dieting and working out I needed this indulgence. Nay, I wanted this. I had to have it. The lusty beast within would not be denied this feast.

S’MAC – delish mac and cheese cheeriness in NYC!

l (2)

Can someone really overdose from eating too much cheese and carbohydrates in one sitting? Holy lactose intolerance Batman! This place was one crazy experience to have after a long day of drinking and partying after a pub crawl. Thank God it is not anywhere near where I live or I would need my arteries cleaned on a weekly basis. S’MAC does not play around when it comes to mac and cheese!

There is actually a small dine-in restaurant and a take out shop next door. It was packed, but all we had to do was hover like a senior at a casino looking to play their favorite penny slot machine and we snagged a bunch of tables within a few minutes. In my booze fueled ravenous state I looked over the menu of cheese-tactic choices and had to order the cheeseburger mac and cheese. Since there were two of us eating this we went with the mongo size. Boy was that a mistake! A giant portion served in a frying pan was put in front of us that struck fear into my stomach. Yes, it tasted terrific, but was so filling. Creamy cheddar and American cheese, seasoned ground beef, and a nice crispy top. Yummmmmy! We could not finish it all and had the rest bagged to go. Of course, I ate it while on the couch watching TV that night. All of it. By myself. Don’t judge!
