Poor Blog

The poor blog has fallen by the wayside the last couple of weeks. It hasn’t been for lack of fun things to see and do in New York. I don’t know, I’ll blame the weather! When will I be able to enjoy warm outdoor weather activities?

In the meantime, indoor activities are keeping be busy. Here are my expert reviews of a couple restaurants I’ve been to recently.

Ever have a craving for a peanut butter and eel role? How about spicy tuna, crispy flakes and banana? Well if you’ve had a hankering for either of those or just a good solid California roll, Ginger on the Lower East Side (or East Village, I don’t know the difference) is for you! The green décor, instrumental pop music and the fact that there were only about 10 tables in the whole restaurant all helped to create a welcoming atmosphere. As I said, the California roll is solid. To spice things up a bit, I also tried a spicy mango shrimp roll—delicious.

Chez Oskar:
Back in Brooklyn, I was at Chez Oskar on Saturday night. A lively French bistro in Fort Greene, a reservation was required for a Saturday evening. At first I was bummed that there was no French onion soup on the menu, but the mild and light carrot and ginger soup quickly took care of the disappointment. The citrus salad was also light and fantastic—greens with orange and apple slices and walnuts with a light vinaigrette. Surprise surprise, I even tried escargot. It was tasty…as long as I wasn’t thinking about what I was eating.

If you're ever trotting through Times Square, try Times Square Grill. Though the name doesn't do it justice, it's definitely worth the stop. They've the best spinach salad. Martinis are pretty great too ;o)
I believe it's 49th at Broadway.
