This was such a memorable meal that I had to give it some love here on the blog. It’s been months since we visited this little slice of deliciousness after a 5K running event in Prospect Park on a sweltering humid night in Brooklyn. We discovered this eatery because we just wanted somewhere to eat dinner in some cool AC! Continue reading Kulushkat! Just Shut Up and Eat!→
I’m a busy man lately. Been running all around Manhattan performing errands, getting some dreaded Christmas shopping done, dropping off a few coats for charity, and also squeezing in some much-needed fun time with my friends. NYC is a magical place this time of year, and lends itself to a bit of overeating and overindulgence.
Yes, diets and waistlines take a beating during the holiday season.
That being said it’s always nice to have a spot like Westville to drop in for some clean and healthy eats to place your mind at ease, and make you feel a little better about yourself after the previous night’s egg nog consumption and over-eating at the company party.

Yeah, yeah, I know. Here’s a guy who has quit eating red meats, steak, pork, bacon (my one regret), and burgers penning an opinion on a burger joint. In the godforsaken land known as NYC’s Disneyfied Times Square. How can he be so brazen? Really dude? Really bro?
Hey, don’t judge. I still like what I like and have an opinion. I am a New Yorker, so you know we all have one. Don’t know about all those giving this little joint sub par reviews on internet sites, and don’t really care, as I have to say during my visit here just recently in the tourist hell-hole known as “The Crossroads of the World” I kind of enjoyed my meal at The Counter in NYC.
Quick, courteous, and friendly service.
Clean and nicely air-conditioned. (Always a plus with me as I hate eating in swamp ass conditions.)
Small dining area with plenty of seating crammed in, and some counter spots by the tiny bar, but do-able overall. The high ceilings, large windows, and modern decor make it a chill looking spot and offer some cool views of neon signs at night. Makes it feel like a larger space than it is. Plus, weirdo people watching is a guilty pleasure. Continue reading The Counter NYC – create your own burger feast!→
There’s no meat in that? Really? It’s vegan? C’mon, you’re kidding. OMG this tastes amazing – like a party in my mouth!
That is what was going through my mind as I devoured the Seitan Chimichurri. It has this smoky flaver and slightly burnt edges as if cooked right on the bar-b-que. I could have sworn it was a meat product as it had great texture and substance. Served on skewers like a shishkabob. After this wonder I knew we were in for a treat. I had no clue that going meatless could be so tasty, but Candle Cafe on the Upper East Side of NYC enlightened me as to what delicious vegan cooking can be!
