Restaurant Review: Kelly’s Pub (Carteret, NJ)

They say, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. Well, when you are about to walk into a bar and read a sign near the door saying, “Pledge allegiance or get the hell out!”, I think your mind would begin to¬†form certain images. I was expecting to see a raucous crowd of old, white men…

Two Reviews from The Market at Liberty Place (Kennett Square, PA)

The Market at Liberty Place reminded me of a scaled-down version of New Hope’s Ferry Market. You walk into an industrial-like setting and are met with a circular concourse of food stands (both savory and for dessert), a tasting stand for a winery, and plenty of tables and chairs. The selection was not quite as…

Restaurant Review: Whistling Willie’s (Cold Spring, NY)

Rare is it to have an experience that begins with such promise and ends with such anger. We did some restaurant research before our trip to Cold Spring aboard the Seastreak. After browsing at one menu after another online, we decided that based on price and selection, Whistling Willie’s seemed our best bet in this…

Restaurant Review: Hanover Eatery (Bethlehem, PA)

We wanted to end our three-day excursion throughout New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania last month on a good note with a good breakfast. We were staying in Bethlehem and I did a quick search for the nearest diner. Right up the road was the Hanover Eatery. I walked in and was immediately reminded of…

Restaurant Review: Eldorado Diner (Elmsford, NY)

The Eldorado Diner was located across the street from our hotel. It was also the final stop for some food after our bar-hopping adventures in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow earlier that night. No longer in New Jersey, it was nice seeing a 24-hour diner…with a bar. We already had enough to drink, but their cocktail…

Restaurant Review: The Huddle (Sleepy Hollow, NY)

Our third bar visit of the day was thankfully the best one. Third time’s a charm, as they say. Since the first two were so disastrous, we debated even giving this place a chance at all. The goal was to come here for late night drinks and maybe a snack, before heading to a 24-hour…

Reviews of The Tapp and Set Back Inn (Tarrytown, NY)

Having a love of dive bars and recently falling in love with John and Peter’s in New Hope, Justin and I set out on our trip to Sleepy Hollow to locate some good bars. The Tapp was recommended as a place for good beers while the Set Back Inn was noted to be the dive…

Takeout Joints Vol. 8: Chinese/Asian Part 3

I had been sitting on these reviews since fall but was waiting until the New Year to post them since a lot of people ring it in with Chinese food (including myself). China Garden (Red Bank) I think I have eaten more Chinese in October than any other month. So many late nights at the…

Restaurant Review: Lefteris Gyro (Tarrytown, NY)

Our first restaurant on this recent¬†three-day trip was located right across the Hudson River in Tarrytown, NY. We had walked around a few minutes looking for a place to grab lunch before exploring Sleepy Hollow, the reason for our trip there. It didn’t take much thinking after looking into this charming Greek restaurant that appears…

Restaurant Review: John and Peter’s Place (New Hope, PA)

I feel like my words will be futile in adequately describing my first experience at John and Peter’s in New Hope. I have been coming to this town since I was a child. I cannot tell you how many times I walked past the tiny, bright blue building and wondered what was inside. After a…

Restaurant Review: Lambertville House (Lambertville, NJ)

Ever since I started to review places based solely on drinking experiences with no food and going in-depth with it, I have come to develop a deeper appreciation for different bars I have been to. A quick visit to the Lambertville House for drinks the other day did nothing but make me crave a dark,…
