I recently got to share my favorite spot for dinner on Upper East Side with @flung_mag.
It’s a tiny, intimate gastropub called Heidi’s House by the Side of the Road, loved by the neighborhood, serving a seasonal, locally-sourced menu. They have an equally cozy bar next door where you can get a glass of 🍷 or 🍺. If you’re lucky, you head to the bar on Shakespeare night and hear an entire reading of a play while you wait for one of the few seats to free up at Heidi’s House
You should go read the article on @flung_mag, btw — find out what dish I have to order every time I eat there. Aaand, discover a few more underrated restaurants all throughout the city

So a couple of years ago I had this weekend tradition to watch Cake Boss whilst having my breakfast, and for those who know the show, the cakes that are made on the show look sooo loaded in sugar that I did not actually think I’d want to try any of them.. but I did always want to try the lobster tail, especially after Buddy showed how it’s made in one of the episodes.
The verdict!? First of all, I think that the original Italian sfogliatella (a.k.a lobster tail), filled with beautifully spiced ricotta, is probably the best pastry in the whole world! I thought this would be a far cry from that pastry, but it was actually really nice! The pastry was good and had the same crunch, and the filling was rich and tasty, and not too sweet - it was French cream with a hint of Bailey’s.
The Times Square branch was super busy and very commercialised, so I’ll have to pop into their original branch in Hoboken some day to try other baked goods.. 😊
Four more days till I can go to brunch. Eggs Benedict in a potato nest 🤤😍
