Usually we love to eat anywhere in Miami. Whether its a cafe or an edgy hot spot, the diversity in these places are extreme and appreciated. And there are definitely times where you want to relish in American traditional comfort food. This wasn't what one would expect from your themed eatery. This wasn't a simple kick to an already established menu of pure red, white, and blue. This was shear elegance. Simple delights like mac n' cheese and pizza were foreign. But at American Social, it transformed into a delicacy.
Not only was the service exceptional, we left our food choices in the hands of the staff. This certainly did not disappoint. The buttery foie gras atop the savory french toast basted our palette into sweet oblivion. The waffle crusted chicken tenders watered our mouth even after the first bite. And the filet medallions balanced the courses with its rich meat.
...Need we say more?
Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and settling for less-than-spectacular in terms of gift giving is unacceptable! Luckily, Epicerie Boulud, located at 1900 Broadway at 64th Street, has turned its production up a notch to provide you with the perfect tasty treat for you to give to your special someone.
The votes are in on The Place and here is the rundown
SCENE : the bar is mostly occupied by college students and those from the younger side of the 20s spectrum, kicking back after a long day at the financial district. It's the perfect place to catch the game or as the night hits around 10pm hit the dancefloor and party the night away. If you like the atmosphere at a dive bar, this is a great scene.
MUSIC: During the day you can nod along to your fave classic rock songs, and then after 10pm you can yell requests at the DJ. The dancefloor is a little on the small side, however. The DJ spins Top 40, club mash-ups, and R&B hits after 10pm. PLUS all the flatscreens to catch sports! We also love the ineveitable seasonal theme nights on Wednesdays ! The bartenders get super festive!
When it comes to Valentines Day, the standard plan is a trip out to a fancy restaurant, possibly some drinking and dancing, and, presumably, an eventual return home to continue your evening. But why not cut out a step and spend the whole night at home? Sure, you could do the out-on-the-town thing, but there's something really special about preparing a meal for someone you love (or at least like a lot) yourself. Plus, as we mentioned before, you've got bedroom proximity on your side.
Sure, they may seem sappy, but love is sappy sometimes. If you're feeling mushy, these heart-shaped beet pockets are a perfect way to start the evening out on a romantic note.

Many barbecue places in New York feel like the same thing: choice ribs, house cole slaw, grilled corn on the cob. Not all eateries featuring those delectable Southern flavors can bring a claim to fame like Tyson Ho's whole hog barbecue and beer hall, which is opening up this summer in East Williamsburg.
Ho, inspired by North Carolina's tradition of cooking an entire pig over coals, has practiced his skills with barbecue master Ed Mitchell and brought them to New York's Hog Days of Summer in the past. Now, he's making a more permanent culinary residence in Brooklyn with a massive 5,000 square-foot indoor/outdoor eatery at 173 Morgan Avenue. The large venue will feature an on-site smoking pit and specialize in a communal pig-picking style true to authentic North Carolina practice.
