Salvation Taco: the Salvation of Murray Hill

Salvation Taco: the Salvation of Murray Hill

Murray Hill is best known for its post-college crowd – but when it comes to decent restaurants, it’s seriously lacking.  It’s finally seen salvation with the new restaurant by chef April Bloomfield, top chef of Spotted Pig and The Breslin fame.  Bloomfield’s newest hotspot Salvation Taco has come in to save the day, and Murray […]

If It’s Good Enough For Adele…

If It’s Good Enough For Adele…

Adele…that voice, those eyes…those eyelashes!!! Well “RUMOR HAS IT” that the London-based mascara, Eyeko mascara, which Adele uses to make her eyes pop! was debuting in New York, and we Magpies wanted to be first in line (well…maybe not the first…) at Sephora to pick up a tube.  We went to two different Sephora locations before finding the one that had just gotten […]

DWNY – The Happiest Little Store To Spend Your Money! Better Yet…Enter Now To Win A Pair Of Faboosh DWNY Earrings!!

As most of you readers know, we Magpies are always attracted to sparkly things. Lucky for us, DWNY, one of the sparkliest boutiques we’ve visited in New York (located on East 21st Street between Park and Broadway), has a twinkly neon sign that caught our eyes as we were heading home one afternoon. Lucky for us, and […]

Epicerie Boulud – An Epicurean Delight

Epicerie Boulud – An Epicurean Delight

We knew that the sandwiches at Epicerie Boulud, an eat-in and take-out market located at 1900 Broadway at 64th Street, were going to be good, since it’s another dining establishment created by the great chef Daniel Boulud. However, we weren’t prepared for just how good our lunch was going to be! The turkey club sandwich, made on homemade bread, not only made a lovely […]

Diablo Royale – The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Diablo Royale – The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Diablo Royale, a tiny but very popular Mexican restaurant on West 10th Street in the West Village, was a dining roller coaster! It had a really great, young crowd, but our dining experience was extremely uneven. One Magpie ordered the chicken quesadilla – which was good…really, really good! As were the fab steak tacos! Another Magpie went with the fish tacos.. […]

Le Pain Quotidien – A Belgian Chain For The Sophisticated Palette

Le Pain Quotidien – A Belgian Chain For The Sophisticated Palette

For all you Magpies who think that this post is about a pain in our quotidien (OMD – that’s oh mon dieu!), think again! We have no pain to report when it comes to this upscale Belgian chain that’s in several locations around the city. Le Pain Quotidien is French and its name means the daily bread. We Magpies were […]

Rubirosa – A Gem Of A Place

Rubirosa – A Gem Of A Place

  It’s only been around for a year, but Rubirosa, a little Italian gem located on Mulberry Street in Nolita (right at the start of Little Italy) has made a big impression on its New York fans. It’s a quiet, unassuming place, that happens to have some of the best Italian specialties we’ve ever tried. Our favorite dish […]

The Battle Of The Gold Mascaras…

The Battle Of The Gold Mascaras…

  If we combined every Magpies’ makeup bags together, we could easily start our own Sephora franchise. And since we always review the newest and coolest makeup we come across, this is really good for those of you who don’t like wasting money on mediocre products like the crew of makeup addicts here does. On a recent rainy afternoon, […]

Even in this Market – Co-op is Worth Your Investment

[Check out CO-OP Preview Party, shot by Alan Phillips] We Magpies take our birthday celebrations quite seriously. And since we dine out quite a lot, we are always in search of a new special place to kick off our birthday festivities. We were very fortunate that a fellow Magpie had drinks at Co-op in the Hotel […]

Isabella’s Is A Bella Place To Dine!

Isabella’s Is A Bella Place To Dine!

We Magpies were out and about and wanted to sit down like ladies and have lunch somewhere rather than just grab lunch somewhere. We decided that we were in the mood for a salad and one Magpie suggested her favorite place to go, Isabella’s, on 77th and Columbus, on the Upper West Side. It was such a sunny, […]

For Your Feet and Stomach – Fiorello

For Your Feet and Stomach – Fiorello

Fiorello’s has been around for a really long time. So long in fact that we Magpies thought it a bit too touristy to dine at. With its prime location and really nice outdoor patio dining as well, we thought there wasn’t a chance in hell that the food would also be good. Well, we were […]

Lexington Brass Brunch – Good Food, Good Service, Good Luck

Lexington Brass Brunch – Good Food, Good Service, Good Luck

Okay, okay, that’s not really a rave Magpie review for this new restaurant venture by the very successful EMM group (they run Abe & Arthur’s, Tenjune and SL – to name a few). Because it was just that: nice food, enthusiastic wait staff, and a very pleasant room to dine in. There was just something missing. Maybe it’s […]

Should You Choose to Forego Your Individual Rooms And Start A Lemonade Stand…

We Magpies always love doing something for charity – and when you mix in cast members of “The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette,” and the “Bachelor Pad” – what could be better? Over the weekend, Graham Bunn (“The Bachelorette,” Deanna’s season, and the most recent season of “Bachelor Pad”) organized a fab event in Central Park. Graham […]

No Longer Extra Virgin Virgins!

No Longer Extra Virgin Virgins!

We’ve been to Extra Virgin in the West Village countless times since we first discovered it exactly a year ago. We Magpies have always been impressed by the fresh ingredients, laid-back vibe, and cool-looking crowd. So when a friend suggested we check it out for brunch, we thought it was a good idea – little […]

Decepción – Art Exhibit For The Rich and Famous?

Decepción – Art Exhibit For The Rich and Famous?

We Magpies were wandering about Fifth Avenue this past week, after having a delish brunch at one of our favorite restaurants, Norma’s, at the Parker Meridian Hotel. We spent some time checking out all the glamorous high-end designer boutiques in that area, and were both awed and floored by the beauty and prices of the merchandise in these stores. Then, after we […]

The crew at Harriet Magpie was on hand to catch a firsthand look at Alice and Olivia’s Spring 2012 fashion line. While the styles were great, the crowd was even better!

Nothing is more fun for us Magpies than checking out the talented new designers that showcase their lines at Henri Bendels’s department store. We  always seem to find some adorable new piece of jewelry or fabulous new makeup to purchase and share with our readers. At this week’s Fashion’s Night Out however, Bendels transformed the entire third floor into the actual […]

Hollywood’s Bronzed Goddesses – The Fake Ones

We don’t want to sound like Debbie Downers, but the summer is coming to an end, and with that goes our summer glow. So now is the time to find the best products to extend our fab summer tan. And when it comes to a faux glow – the women in Hollywood seem to know just what products […]

Kim Kardashian’s Three Wedding Dresses – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly? Or The Bad, The Good,The Ugly – What Do YOU Think?

courtesy of Hello! magazine online When it comes to critiquing wedding dresses, we Magpies would always rather take the high road. We are firm believers (most of the time) that all brides look beautiful. Normally, we Magpies would never say anything negative about a bride to put a damper on her happy occasion. However, we’ve […]
