As much as I love fashion and beauty, ya’ll know I love to eat! Hell, I got hungry putting this post together!! I’m surprised I only gained 3lbs while in the Big Apple! I’ve always said after Chicago, New York has the best food.

Here are some of the fabulous places I ate at during my New York stay…


I know I can eat Red Lobster at home but I promise you the Red Lobster in Times Square is the best in the

Two Steps Down Restaurant

Brunch at Two Steps Down was pretty good!

Pipa Tapas in New York

OMG! I never had Tapas before so I was a bit nervous! But the food at Pipa's was awesome! I'm addicted, we had Calamari, Lobster Paella and Filet Mignon.

Sugar Cane

Great West Indies Food at Sugar Cane, I had a sampler and Rum Punch!!

Cake Man Raven

I have never had a piece of Red Velvet cake I enjoyed until I went to Cake Man Raven!! Hands down the best...


Stopped in Chavella's for a quick bite! Had the Trio of Salsas, as well as a taco and tostada.

City Crab

I'm addicted to seafood so I stopped in City Crab! I ordered a Fra Diavolo and appetizers...

Lannam Vietnamese Cuisine

At Lannam my favorite was the Lychee Sake... Still trying to locate it here in Chicago!

Blue Ginger

What would my trip be without grabbing some sushi, so I ate at Blue Ginger!!
