Wow, this place brought back amazing food memories of their old sister location that used to be up by me on 88th and 2nd ave in NYC. We were craving some of their wonderfully tasty plates after discussing some of the good eats we had there before the spot by us closed. Well, sometimes wishes do come through when gluttony is involved!
While out doing some much-needed clothes shopping recently it was becoming late in the day and we were a couple of hangry, yes hangry I said, monkeys. Hangry – extreme anger with excessive hunger. Shopping for clothes will do that to a person, especially when you can’t find anything that fits or looks right. Wandering around the downtown area of NYC we happened upon Ichabod’s and took a chance they would seat us as it was prime dinner time. What a terrific food find this was! It’s one of those spots that once you experience it you’ll be thinking about the next time you’re in the area to make sure you drop in again. Exceptional service, food, and cocktails. Worth every penny. Small spot so reservations are a good idea. Even so, they found us a table for two that we could have for an hour and a half and it worked out great.
I finally popped my Maoz cherry! So many times I walked by this place down in Union Square NYC, saw all the rave reviews on Yelp, but did not drop in to try it out. It was my first time yesterday for lunch and discovered a terrific falafel sandwich and sweet potato fries! Hot damn this was good. My taste buds approved of this healthier option that I was putting into my mouth. Yummers!
Sure, it’s not too often that I write about the healthier eats in and around NYC but at times I need to give my overtaxed digestive system a break. A meatless lunch. No bacon. No nitrates. Nothing that moos or oinks. Consider it a sort of cleansing. My body thanks me. My intestinal tract thanks me. My butthole thanks me.
