The fast casual concept continues to be on the rise in New York City, as many Manhattanites are opting to spend their money at places where fresh ingredients reign supreme over the conglomerate ones that are stuffing up our area.

Sure, I’ll say hello every once in a while but they aren’t exactly my most frequented text option when it comes to the kind of food that I eat.

On a recent Saturday afternoon in June, I begrudgingly trudged downtown to SubCulture, the intimate, posh venue housed at 45 Bleecker Street. It was one of the first gorgeous days of spring that New Yorkers had the opportunity to savor and I regretted my decision to spend it in a dark basement with Astor Piazzolla.
Pod BK Hotel, located off the L train at 247 Metropolitan Avenue, was THE place to be last night as they opened their fabulous rooftop bar called RFTP.
Tang Hotpot is unlike anything I have ever had in New York City and beyond. It’s something that I would like to try again, although to be quite honest I had a hard time figuring out the ins and outs of the entire process prior to putting all of the extraordinarily delicious ingredients in one bowl.
One of Ben Strothmann’s earliest NYC memories is when his voice teacher tells him, “Ben, you are living your life in a constant state of reaction to people and things around you. You’re not an authentic person.”
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Lower East Side hotspot Vandal has introduced a brand new Double IPA Burger… and its f***ing awesome.
