Don't know how this Australian cafe has evaded the blog for as long as it has, considering it possesses many of the qualities we hold in high regard: 1) It's cheap. 2) The food's good. 3) We dig the vibe. And as a bonus, it's always packed with good looking foreigners wearing new duds by APC and Rag and Bone. Amen. Salads are fresh and colorful, pastas are hearty, and the hamburger on ciabatta is a Nolita legend.

We love brunch as much as anyone, but sometimes the hassle of waiting for a table at a good restaurant makes the whole experience feel more like a punishment than a treat, especially when you're hung over and craving a cup of coffee like, ten minutes ago. Which is why we like do it up at the home-front every once in a while.
You don't need to spend much money to put together a fantastic brunch menu. And you don't have to rely on Aunt Jemima either, although we won't hate on getting inspiration from Kellogg's. A couple of Sundays ago we put together a killer menu: YAH's favorite buttermilk biscuits and honey butter, a vegetable frittata, and home made pop-tarts.
YAH's Veggie Frittata
1 bag of spinach
1 bunch cherry tomatoes
crumbled goat cheese
dash of balsamic vinegar

Michael White restaurant sans white table cloth and not in Midtown? Major score for the downtown set. Or is it?

CUISINE: American (New)
110 Bedford St. between 11th and 12th
The Bedford, located in the old Sound Fix HQ, is throwing its hat in the ring to contend with Williamsburg’s ‘new American’ heavy hitters, such as Marlow & Sons and Rye. Guess what? Their ingredients are local, their would-be patrons are stylish in that nostalgia-for-another-era fashion, and their interior is oaky and candlelit. What’s wrong with hopping on a bandwagon if said bandwagon is proving to be a hot ticket? You shouldn’t need one more reason to leave Manhattan for better shores, says this Brooklyn loyalist. CONT'D

In our last video, Seth enjoyed Dunkin' Donuts newest delicacy, the Sausage Pancake Bite. After much anticipation, he determined that it was, indeed, quite gross. As promised, we have challenged a chef to create his own version of the subpar treat. Joe Dobias, chef and owner of one of our favorite East Village restaurants, JoeDoe, whipped us up a snack so good, he's considering adding them to the menu permanently. Check it out!

We are young (early 20's) and hungry (for knowledge! music! art! food!) friends living on (or in areas which border) Manhattan. We moved to the city seeking higher education, and an alternative to frat parties and gin buckets. We prefer a bottle of Chianti to a keg, lunches at City Bakery to a dining hall, Joe's to Starbucks, Frankie's Amatriciana to Batali's. Our uniting factor is our love for food.
