For Authentic Italian Food And Style – Crispo’s Sono Buoni!

For Authentic Italian Food And Style – Crispo’s Sono Buoni!

One of the nicest surprises this summer was our recent revisit to Crispo, a traditional Italian restaurant located on 14th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. We’ve eaten there before, and to be perfectly honest, it left a bad taste in our mouths (literally and figuratively). But since one foodie Magpie said it was soooo sono buoni, we […]

Potbelly and IHOP Coming to NYC!

Potbelly and IHOP Coming to NYC!

If you didn’t go to college in the Midwest as some of us Magpies did, then chances are you’ve never heard of a sandwich shop called Potbelly. But soon, we promise, you’ll get a chance to experience a T-K-Y (turkey and melted swiss on thin cut bread) and never look back. This Chicago-based sandwich shop is opening three NYC locations – 2 […]

What’s Betta than the Burger at Minetta?

What’s Betta than the Burger at Minetta?

We’ve passed Minetta Tavern dozens of times, but we’ve never been inside. We just knew that we’d never be able to get a reservation- so we really never tried. But since we’ve read so many rave reviews about Minetta’s famous “Black Label” burger – we were thrilled when a fellow Magpie got a reservation(!) on a recent […]

It’s Happy Hour Time!! Free Food EVERY Summer Night at Fig and Olive!

Now that summer’s here, we Magpies love flocking to happy hours!! And one of our most consistent go-to restaurants, Fig and Olive, is offering up a happy hour deal that we Magpies can’t refuse. Starting this week (and for every night this summer from 5-7 P.M.), two NYC Fig and Olive locations (the Meatpacking District on […]

Don’t Go Loco – Just Try Poco!

Don’t Go Loco – Just Try Poco!

We found ourselves scrambling recently for a fab spot to go for a Magpies’ night out. The catch? There were eight of us who wanted to get together – and getting a reservation for a party that size is never easy! Thankfully, one Magpie suggested Poco, a tapas restaurant located on 3rd Street and Avenue B. We were […]

Raines Law Room – for the Educated Drinker!

Raines Law Room – for the Educated Drinker!

We absolutely love discovering the hidden cool spots in NYC – and then sharing them with our fellow Magpies (so they’re not so hidden anymore!). Last week, we had drinks at Raine’s Law Room for the very first time – and fell in love with it. Raine’s Law Room is located in quite a random location – 17th […]

There’s Something About Abboccato…

There’s Something About Abboccato…

Seeing a show in Manhattan is always so much fun – however, finding a place to dine in the theater district is definitely not! But after dining at Abboccato, located on 55th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, all that has changed. One of our loyal Magpies had been there many times and highly recommended it. And […]

Blue Ribbon Bakery For Brunch…Worth The Wait?

Blue Ribbon Bakery For Brunch…Worth The Wait?

There has been so much talk about Blue Ribbon Bakery’s brunch that we Magpies decided to make it our mission to try it out. There are a couple of reasons for not going sooner, but the three main reasons were 1) they serve brunch only on weekends (come on… if you have a good thing…flaunt it);  2) it’s always packed; and […]

2011 Cinco de Mayo Partying in NYC!

Yay!!! It’s Cinco de Mayo time!!! We Magpies love just about any excuse for a good party, and we need really no excuse to down a margarita! So what could be more fun than celebrating Cinco de Mayo? We’ve rounded up some of the best parties happening across NYC. 1) Cinco de Mayo fiesta at Village Pourhouse. We know, a Mexican […]

LA Faves Katsuya and Sprinkles Are Coming to NYC!

LA Faves Katsuya and Sprinkles Are Coming to NYC!

We Magpies happen to think NYC has the best food in the world. And now – it’s gonna get even better! We just found out two Los Angeles hotspots will be debuting soon in New York. First – Ali Fedotowsky and Katie Holmes’ favorite, Sprinkles Cupcakes, will open on Lexington Avenue between 60th and 61st Streets (near […]

Meet Me At Tre Dici

Meet Me At Tre Dici

We don’t know about you – but we haven’t loved any restaurants in Chelsea. Call us crazy, but we think we have a knack for finding good restaurants in almost every nook of NY (except for that neighborhood). But recently we stopped in at a very cozy restaurant that we’d passed by many times – and after dining there, we’re delighted to […]

See (Great Views!) And Be Seen – Best NYC Rooftop Bars 2011

Because the weather here in NYC is finally warming up, the night life is heating up too! We Magpies had a request to put together the best rooftop bars for this spring and summer. We are so excited to check some of these places out – because as we all know, there’s nothing quite like […]

Where in the World to Watch Will & Kate Wed…

It’s not just the Brits that have royal wedding fever! The crew at Harriet Magpie have it and it’s spreading all over – and we’ve got a roundup of the best spots to watch the royal wedding in NYC!

Go to Commerce – Just for The Bun Of It!

Go to Commerce – Just for The Bun Of It!

We have been wanting to try Commerce in the West Village ever since two foodie Magpies said it’s the best place to go for brunch. So when we heard that – we just had to check it out. Commerce is located on the most adorable street in the West Village. It’s a small, winding road, and […]

A Summer Diet We Can Do And Dukan Too!

A Summer Diet We Can Do And Dukan Too!

Well, we first have to say that the crew at Harriet Magpie actually goes to the delicious restaurants that are featured on our site. Which probably makes it the most enjoyable website anyone can be part of! With that being said, the only drawback to such a tasty occupation is the extra pounds we’ve added since we started on this […]

Yerba Buena Es Bueno (You Buena Believe it!)

Yerba Buena Es Bueno (You Buena Believe it!)

Yerba Buena has been around forever in restaurant years, but we Magpies had never been there until recently. This adorable Latin American restaurant is located on Avenue A near 2nd Street in Alphabet City (and there’s another location on Perry Street in the West Village). From the outside, it doesn’t look like much at all… […]

Murray Hill’s Teqa – Just What The Doctor Ordered

Murray Hill’s Teqa – Just What The Doctor Ordered

Teqa is a new Mexican hotspot on Third Avenue near 31st Street. It’s very unique to the area, because it feels almost like a restaurant downtown that’s been transplanted to Murray Hill. With its cool decor and trendy scene, it’s a welcome addition to the neighborhood. We decided to have some drinks and appetizers there […]

Barking Dog: All Bark AND A Great Bite!

As our loyal readers know, there’s nothin’ we Magpies love more than discovering a new favorite spot in NYC. And we are  happy to say that our search for the best brunch menu (served any day of the week) led us somewhere we’ve walked by about a thousand times – Barking Dog. This unassuming restaurant on […]
