Wasabi! We loved our experience at DOMODOMO NYC as much as we loved that joke. DOMODOMO is a Japanese restaurant that was New York's first restaurant that specialized in sushi hand rolls. We were immediately interested in this restaurant after looking through their menu online, which boasts interesting dishes such as uni pasta and different … Continue reading What Did Sushi A Say To Sushi B?
Imagine walking through a deserted street lined with flickering street lights and abandoned warehouses in the dark, so barren that you could even hear a pin drop. Sounds relatively spooky, doesn't it?

Some of the best restaurants and chefs hail from France, so it's no surprise that these restaurants, such as Le Bernadin, are ridiculously expensive. As two medical students, our loans prevent us from enjoying these luxuries. As we think about the … Continue reading When France Meets Italy
Curiosity took us out to The Mermaid Inn to try oysters for the first time. Their happy hour for oysters, at $1 each, seemed like a pretty good deal in comparison to the steeper prices seen elsewhere. After waiting close to an hour for a seat, the waitress sat us down by a small, dimly … Continue reading A Seafood Affair – Oysters Galore
