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 […]

The Hurricane Club – Sign Us Up, We’re Ready to Join!

The Hurricane Club – Sign Us Up, We’re Ready to Join!

The Hurricane Club is a hot new tiki-inspired spot on 26th Street and Park Avenue, not far from the new Gansevoort Hotel (which we Magpies love). So on a recent night out, we decided to check out The Hurricane Club to see if it lived up to its hype. First of all, the place is beautiful. […]

Check out Balaboosta – Just Ignore the Attitude-sta!

Check out Balaboosta – Just Ignore the Attitude-sta!

After a long day of shopping, we wandered into Balaboosta, a new Nolita Mediterranean restaurant on Mulberry Street (near Spring Street) at about 6:00 on a recent Sunday night. We were excited to try it, since it’s owned by the same people who own falafel hotspot Taïm. When we walked in, we were happy to […]

The Primola Reason To Go To Primola? Mozzarella And Tomatoes!

The Primola Reason To Go To Primola? Mozzarella And Tomatoes!

Sure Primola is a warm, authentic Italian restaurant that you would love to have in your neighborhood. And naturally, the Upper East Side restaurant, located on Second Avenue between 64th and 65th Streets, has a traditional Italian menu –  classic dishes like antipasti, spaghetti and meatballs in a fresh tomato sauce… and a flavorful chicken milanese that tastes just like […]

Blueberry Pomegranate Margaritas at Dos Caminos: Jessica Simpson loves ’em, and we do too!

Blueberry Pomegranate Margaritas at Dos Caminos: Jessica Simpson loves ’em, and we do too!

There are few things we Magpies like better than margaritas and guacamole. We’re always on the hunt for great versions of both. So imagine our surprise when we were at Dos Caminos recently (we’ve been to all of the locations dozens of times) and tried literally the best margarita we’ve ever had. Drum roll please…introducing […]

Russ and Daughters – Good Lox, But We’re Not Russin’ Back

Russ and Daughters – Good Lox, But We’re Not Russin’ Back

A good bagel is a Magpie staple – in fact, it’s practically its own food group for us. So, if someone tells us that there’s a place on the Lower East Side that has great bagels and appetizing spreads (think whitefish, lox, salmon and other delish fishes) we feel that it’s our duty to check it out. Russ and Daughters, located on Houston Street […]

Will You be Dashin’ to Dash NYC?

Will You be Dashin’ to Dash NYC?

It’s official: Dash NYC, the Kardashian sisters’ third Dash boutique, is now open for business. The store is located at 119 Spring Street in Soho – and all of Spring Street was blocked off for the opening’s madness! So that leaves us Magpies wondering…will you be dashin’ to Dash?

Spring Natural For Brunch, A Naturally Good Choice

Spring Natural For Brunch, A Naturally Good Choice

By now you know that our fave meal of the day is brunch. We are constantly trying out new places, and we wrote about two of our faves here and here. But all those fried French toasts, chocolate chip pancakes, and sugary muffins can be pretty fattening. So recently we decided to switch it up and go […]

John May-er May Not Have Gotten Laid Saturday Night…

John May-er May Not Have Gotten Laid Saturday Night…

Halloween can be really funny, really scary, or really weird. This past Saturday night…it was all three! We Magpies were waiting for a cab outside La Esquina on Kenmare Street on Halloween Eve when all of a sudden we saw a familiar face in an elaborate Storm Troopers costume. It was John Mayer! And even though we […]

Ruby et Violette – For Cookies You’ll Never Forget

Our regular Magpie readers know how obsessed we are with finding the perfect chocolate chip cookie. We’ve written about some of our favorites here and here. Recently, one loyal reader suggested we check out Ruby et Violette on 50th Street near 10th Avenue, a petite French bakery that (OMD! – Oh Mon Dieu!) we had never even heard of. […]

Banana Republic’s Spring 2011 Fashion Forecast – Sa-Fari So Good!

We Magpies were thrilled to get a peek at the Banana Republic Spring 2011 Fashion Show this week. It turns out that one of the top “bananas” at Banana Republic is also a loyal Magpie fan! We’ve been loving the collections over the past year or two, and many of our recent purchases have become staples in our […]

‘Wichcraft – Scary Good!

‘Wichcraft – Scary Good!

NYC has the best food in the world – pizza, bagels, burgers…the list goes on and on. However,we Magpies have had a hard time finding a restaurant that makes a really good sandwich. We’ve written about our love of sandwiches here and here, though lately, we haven’t been loving any we’ve tried. But recently, when we stopped for a quick bite […]

You Gotta Be Inn To Know Kuma Inn

You Gotta Be Inn To Know Kuma Inn

You might be wondering, where in the world is Kuma Inn? No, it’s not that creepy looking bed-and-breakfast you sometimes pass on the way to grab your morning coffee. Kuma Inn is a somewhat hidden restaurant on Ludlow Street between Rivington and Delancey on the Lower East Side – but it’s well-known to foodies (and in-the-know […]

Holy Moly, Get Your Cute Cannolis!

If you have been following Harriet Magpie, you’re well aware of our love of sweets (one might even say we are totally obsessed!). We’ve written about some of our faves here, here and here. And while we’ve rarely met a dessert we didn’t like – we can honestly say we’ve never been huge fans of cannolis (they fall […]

Primehouse is Sooo Good! Why is it Sooo Empty?

Primehouse is Sooo Good! Why is it Sooo Empty?

We’ve been to Primehouse New York (a steak restaurant on 28th Street and Park Avenue) several times. Actually, the first time we tried it was on a Friday night, when two other restaurants that we really wanted to go to had ridiculously long waits. At Primehouse, we simply walked in without a reservation and were immediately seated! In […]

Blow Salon: For A Blowout That Doesn’t Blow

Blow Salon: For A Blowout That Doesn’t Blow

There’s nothing like a good blowout to make you feel fab before an evening out (we wrote about our love of salon blowouts here). So recently, when our hair was looking pretty unruly, we decided to give Blow a chance. There are two NYC locations of this blowout-only salon: the original, in the Meatpacking District, […]

We’ve been to The Standard Grill for dinner before – but we’ve always wanted to try it for brunch. The Standard Grill is the restaurant located at the Standard Hotel, on 13th Street and Washington. We arrived before noon for brunch on a recent Sunday – and were happy to see that the place was […]

Where the Hecka is La Biblioteca?

After hearing all the buzz about it, you might be wondering…donde esta La Biblioteca? Located on the corner of 40th street and 3rd Avenue, La Biblioteca (Spanish for “the library”) has to be one of the trendiest lounges to hit Murray Hill in…forever! You have to know about this place though – it’s easy to miss, and you […]

To Penelope…With Love

Dear Penelope, The staff at Harriet Magpie wants to ask for forgiveness for judging you prematurely and waiting so long to give you another chance. We had visited you for lunch about a year ago and it was not memorable…but we decided to go back after seeing consistently long lines outside your cozy place every […]
