A while back, I stopped by Mr. Chow in TriBeCa with an eating buddy.  I’ve walked by Mr. Chow many times before, as it’s right in my neighborhood.  A quick peek in suggested a clientele that was way more cool and hip than I was.  (Case in point, I use the word “hip”).  However, I heard the food was quite good AND I had a Gilt City voucher, so I figured – why not?  The voucher was good for 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, rice, seasonal vegetables and champagne – a hearty meal for two people!

For our first appy, we ordered…

Happy Friday, Noshers!  This week’s fun fact is very practical – I do this all the time!

To keep herbs, place them in a glass of water (as you would cut flowers), cover with a plastic bag, and store in the fridge.

Herbs are always sold in huge bunches, and this is a great way to keep them from spoiling!

Happy almost-Friday, Noshers!

Happy Friday, Noshers! I know some of us have this Monday off for President’s Day. Are you one of the lucky ones?

For this week’s Fun Fact Friday, I’d like to share some video I took of the lion dances at the Chinese New Year celebrations in NYC’s Chinatown last month!

Did you know:

The lion dance is believed to bring good luck and prosperity to the businesses it visits.

As you can imagine, the lion has a lot of stops to make during the Chinese New Year! Have a wonderful weekend!

Have you seen a lion dance before?
