NYC Food Guy Gone For The Weekend, 24 Hour “Kool Bloo” Open for Takeout & Delivery in East Village, A Mission for NYC Food Guy’s Readers

January 30, 2009

Kool Bloo, a small chain of grease pits throughout Manhattan, just opened the 24 hour take out/delivery area of their new East Village location on 12th Street just off Avenue A.  Kool Bloo has the potential to become the go to late night dining spot once the main room opens but there’s two problems: 1) Everything is overpriced 2) Their menu is overwhelmingly large.  I attempted to play it safe by ordering something low key, but that didn’t prevent a disappointing experience. I ordered a chicken burger, which I thought would be grilled but instead arrived breaded and fried, on a roll with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and melted jack cheese.  I also picked up an order of seasoned curly fries.  Read on to find out where things went wrong…

NYC Best Diner: Stick with Ukrainian Classics at Veselka

January 29, 2009

There are certain dining experiences that just make you feel like a New Yorker. Sitting at Veselka’s counter sipping coffee and dipping chalah into a bowl of soup exemplifies this notion 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Originally opened as a candy store in the mainly Ukrainian East Village of the 1950s, “Veselka,” Ukrainian for “rainbow,” has been spreading cheer amidst an ever-changing neighborhood by sticking to its roots: authentic and affordable Ukrainian food in an unhurried atmosphere.

Levain Bakery’s Cookies Are Simply The Best

May 5, 2008

Levain Bakery’s cookies ($3.75 each) are simply the best. I’ve said it before and after eating at least 2 every week for the past month, I’m saying it again. Levain’s chocolate chip walnut cookie is the best I’ve ever had. Unlike most of my other “best claims”, I can’t imagine this one will be topped. They’re even more amazing when warm so ask for them to be tossed back in the oven for a few seconds or do it yourself at home. Below you’re looking at a Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip cookie crowning a Chocolate Chip Walnut. I imagine every meal in heaven starts and begins with cookies from Levain.
