Lunch Lady: Hot For Teacher

Lunch Lady: Hot For Teacher

I know your shoes are probably soaked and you almost dropped your phone in a puddle and maybe your $3 bodega umbrella turned inside out AND it's a Monday... but don't worry because I'm about to give you some really good news. Recently, Charlotte, our resident cocktail connoisseur and I had a li ...

Lunch Lady: How you doin?

Lunch Lady: How you doin?

Guess what! Today is St. Joseph's Day! The name or feast day of San Giuseppe, the sorta-father of the most famous surprise baby in history. Legend has it that he saved Sicily from famine using the magical fava bean and now every March 19th people get together and eat the foods and wines and things.A ...

Lunch Lady: Alright Already!

Lunch Lady: Alright Already!

I am so over this. I don't want snow or hats or coats or boots or cold kitchen floors anymore. I want sun and good music and good friends and fun and long long days on rooftops with ice cold beer.I also want good food! The kind of food that reminds you that right now someone somewhere is gettin ...

Lunch Lady: Sooie!

Lunch Lady: Sooie!

Oh haaayyy Kitty-Babes! So, Rony totally lit a fire under my ass for being the most neglectful Lunch Lady ever! And thankfully I have the perfect place in mind to start this romance up again...Since we've got a new studio on the South Side I've been walking past a bunch of awesome places I've never ...

Lunch Lady: Girl Crush

Lunch Lady: Girl Crush

So by this point it's pretty obvious that our obsession with Dina's taco truck (La Troca Del Sabor on N4th btwn Bedford and Berry) has gotten a liiiiiittle out of hand. At first it was maybe just a few of us waiting in line once or twice a week and now it's come to the point where if you even mentio ...

Lunch Lady: Personal Space

Lunch Lady: Personal Space

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS. I will totally look through your bathroom cabinets every time I'm in there. If you are on your phone- I am asking who you're talking to. If you order a drink- I am taking a sip. It's bad, I know! I try so hard and sometimes I just have to save my friends the stress and eat ...

Lunch Lady: The Rockaways

Lunch Lady: The Rockaways

So to all of you in NY and elsewhere who got into it with Sandy this week, we wish you well and hope that you are getting all of the help that you need. And for those of you, like myself who went by pretty unscathed except for the massive amounts of empty calories you probably consumed out of boredo ...

Lunch Lady: Alright Alright Alright!

Lunch Lady: Alright Alright Alright!

Even the Cookie Monster is eating vegetables - so I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and stop having French Fries with every meal. Consider this my Day 1 of trying to eat like a semi-adult, kind of.I absolutely had leftover mac n' cheese for breakfast BUT for lunch I did a 180 an ...

Lunch Lady: Egg on your plate

Lunch Lady: Egg on your plate

So I caved and went to Egg. Everyone I work with is always telling me how fantastic this place is but I've been staying away because... well I really just don't like eggs that much. They're very weird. And pretty much the only thing besides cupcakes (don't even ask me why) that I never seem to make ...

Lunch Lady: You're So Stupid, Rose.

Lunch Lady: You're So Stupid, Rose.

I met The Lodge one beautiful Sunday afternoon in the summer of 2007. The treestump seats around the cross-section table, the antler chandeliers, the Bloody Marys in mason jars, the handsome men and women, the wing nights, the cocktails, the local wines and microbrews- it was only the first date, bu ...

Lunch Lady: Renovation! :-)

Lunch Lady: Renovation! :-)

We're gettin' all gussied up!!! We're shellacking our nails, painting our lips and slapping on a fresh pair of underthings just for you ;-) We even kissed the sign we made just so you won't miss us too bad while we're busy getting beautiful. BUT a girl's still gotta eat- and everyone knows how shame ...

How We Wear It: Ash

How We Wear It: Ash

With too many positive things to say on the subject, I tried to keep it brief to avoid a novel! Ash and I became birds the same week last May and pretty much since day one I've had a lil' lady bird crush on her! How could you not?! She makes a mean playlist, a delicious peanut butter, ...

Lunch Lady: In Memoriam Theodore Donald Karabotsos

Lunch Lady: In Memoriam Theodore Donald Karabotsos

As Leigh so eloquently put it..."Catbird is hungover."After a night of whiskey on the rocks with lime, SIXTEEN of the hottest babes I know, waaayyy too many gutterballs and this! My body is not very happy with me. So to make it up to myself I decided to take the advice of our lovely friends at ...

Lunch Lady: Date!

Lunch Lady: Date!

I'm not sure what it is about this place but every time I come here it's full of people on dates. This time I spotted two Man Dates (if you don't know what this is then you should watch I Love You Man) and I was on a date with Correy Maybe it's the way it's set up- small tables lining the walls and ...

Lunch Lady: POWER LUNCH à la Gordon Gekko

Lunch Lady: POWER LUNCH à la Gordon Gekko

You would never guess in a million years that a place with a cutesy name like Roebling Tea Room would serve an amazing Steak Tartare... but they do! It comes with fried chickpeas, Kewpie* and capers. And there's so much of it I had to ask for more bread.Now, you obviously don't HAVE to eat it with b ...
