There may be a few restaurants in this town called “Patsy’s”, but only one of them was good enough for ‘Ole Blue Eyes. That one was-and still is—situated in midtown on West 56th street between 8th avenue and Broadway. Since 1944, The Scognamillo family has taken great pride in serving fine quality Neapolitan cuisine to celebrities, politicians, loyal customers, and tourists alike.

Last night, Meatpacking district hotspot Bagatelle played host to the amazing Kelly Osbourne, as she celebrated her cover of BELLA Magazine as well as her new book called “There is no F*cking Secret: Letters from a Badass Bitch”, which hits stores nationwide today.  The lovely Kelly showed up in a gorgeous black and gold dress with her signature purple hair that was shaved on each sides, and looked absolutely fantastic.  Not only that, but she took some time to chat with me about her exciting night, her book, and one crazy ass experience that she had in Manhattan!

Blu on Park goes beyond what you would expect from your everyday steakhouse here in Manhattan.  It is something that I noticed right when I walked into its location on East 60th Street between Lexington and Park Avenue.  The Upper East Side hotspot seems to have taken the concept of what a steakhouse is, and used some sort of Instagram filter to lighten it up in many different ways, from the visual execution of the establishment to the gorgeous food we were presented that night.  I continue…

The Burger; we all know it as the quintessential defining American food. At Mel’s Burger Bar in the Upper East Side, they succeed in bringing it front and center and making a quality casual dining experience. When you first walk into Mel’s the thing that stands out is the giant lighted sign in the back and it is foreshadowing the big flavors and portions to come.

Ramen is quite frankly one of the most delicious kinds of foods out there, especially in the noodle category.  In a city like Manhattan, it is pretty easy to find this culinary delicacy on pretty much every block with not much differentiation.  However, there are ones that excel at the artistry and craft that is all things Ramen, and we have found what we think are the best of the best in this field for you to enjoy, dissect and devour!

Fast Casual

In Manhattan, we are always on the go, and even though it is nice to slow down sometimes and relax at a nice restaurant, other times that isn’t the case and need to get something on the go.  That is where fast casual comes into play, and you have to go beyond the regular types that you see populating the city to really get a sense of how delicious this concept can really be!

Christian Lee Navarro is going through something quite special, that not a lot of people in any industry faces.  Within a month, his name has become one of the most talked about in the entertainment industry, due to his role as Tony on Netflix’s wildly successful series 13 Reasons Why.  Christian, whose prior acting credits include the HBO series Vinyl, is going through a metamorphosis of sorts as he has gone from a somewhat known person in the acting world to defining “what’s next” in Hollywood. Tony, just like himself though, has quite a lot in common which makes the role for Christian that much more personal.

Watch What Happens Live

Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen has become a pop culture phenomenon since its debut almost a decade ago in August of 2009.  As a self-proclaimed Bravo-holic, I have been obsessed with this crazy little half hour show, where the devilishly handsome & hysterical Andy chats with an assortment of celebrities about their own careers and what’s going on in the world at that moment.  Last month, I had the AMAZING opportunity to go to a live taping of the show as an audience member (hopefully bartender soon!) and really got to experience first hand just how amazing a show like this can be.


There will be a lot of repatishin. There will be a lot of repetichion. There will be a lot of repetition. Eventually, Phil Connors (Andy Karl) will get it right, but it’s gonna him take a couple of hours and quite a bit of patience from audiences until he finally does. Connors is the bitter, cynical weatherman for a medium-market news channel in Danny Rubin’s adaptation of the 1993 comedy Groundhog Day.
