A want or a need?

I think it is a little of both.


espresso in manhattan, ny

juan valdez cafe.

zibetto espresso bar.

macchiato espresso bar.

ninth street espresso bar.

Ninth Street Espresso was good, no check that, it was damn good. unfortunately the others were not, juan valdez gets the award for the worst espresso tasted in nyc. here was my cup at Ninth Street:


something has to change

when I first started this blog, I had the grand idea of blogging about all the fantastic restaurants I would try. I would cook amazing meals multiple times of week and then photograph them and write about the experience. Well, as you can see by the dates on my posts that I have been fairly unsuccessful in my venture. That said, I have decided that I will just start posting any and everything that finds its way into my  mind. I would still like to focus on food, coffee and design but perhaps start adding aspects of photography and art to the mix. I don't know, maybe this is a last grasping effort to keep this blog from falling by the wayside (as if it already hasn't) or maybe it will be the beginning of something beautiful. We shall see. Check back soon, hopefully you will find something interesting.
