2010 Wrap-Up

Eating Out

Hope everyone had a great holiday season!  I know I over-indulged a bit on my part, but what would the holidays be without a little gluttony?  As the year winds down, I’d like to thank all of you for following Big Apple Nosh!  When I started this site just 7 months ago, I never guessed I’d “meet” readers from all over the US and across the globe.  I’ve got some new and exciting things planned for 2011, so stay tuned!

In the mean time, I’ll be savoring the truffle salt and truffle oil from Marx Foods (prize shipment #2 for winning the Mushroom Challenge!) and finalizing New Year’s plans.  Keep an eye out for some recipes!

What’s on your agenda for the rest of the year?

Anyway, continuing on – after my hot dog excursion at Bark, I wandered into The Chocolate Room.  I was not familiar with The Chocolate Room at all, but with a name like that, how could I go wrong?

Chicago Chow: Garrett Popcorn

Eating Out


During my first trip to Chicago two years ago, I was told that Garrett Popcorn was an absolute must-try.  The Chicago mix, in particular, is the stuff of legend – sweet caramel popcorn mixed with cheddar popcorn.  I tried it and was absolutely addicted.  Well, lo and behold – there’s a Garrett in NYC!  Oh NoshGirl, you’re so silly.  What is it that’s so amazing about Garrett? Where do I even begin…
