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

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 […]

Somethin’ Good’s Always Cookin! Kitchenette Gets The “K”!

Somethin’ Good’s Always Cookin! Kitchenette Gets The “K”!

We at Harriet Magpie usually love those brunch combo dishes that have the he-man names. Unfortunately, they all have those he-man names…and you feel a little funny ordering them! And quite frankly, even though we’re usually able to knock off one of those delicious sounding platters, it behooves us to say the name to order them! […]

J is for Jane – Run to Jane, Run!

J is for Jane – Run to Jane, Run!

We Magpies are definitely creatures of habit. When we like a restaurant for its certain signature dishes, we always have to order them every time we go. Jane, located downtown at 100 West Houston Street (between Thompson Pl. and Laguardia), is one of those exceptions to the rule. It is true that every time we dine there we […]

I is for Inoteca

I is for Inoteca

We’ve walked by Gramercy’s Inoteca several times since it opened and it’s always crowded. Well, maybe that’s a bit of an understatement, because Inoteca is always packed! We’re talking lots of people spilling out onto the corner of 24th and 3rd – waiting to get inside. So recently, we had the chance to finally check this place out […]

Hundreds of Reasons Hundred Acres Gets The “H”

Hundreds of Reasons Hundred Acres Gets The “H”

Hundred Acres, a charming restaurant located at 38 MacDougal Street between Prince and West Houston, is owned and operated by the same people responsible for our other fave brunch place, Cookshop. What makes this restaurant so good? Well, for one thing it’s a very open, sunny place to start off a Sunday. For those of […]

Friend of a Farmer Gets An “F” for Fabu-licious

Friend of a Farmer Gets An “F” for Fabu-licious

Every now and then we Magpies need to leave the craziness of NYC for something a little more mellow. So when we want to take a trip to the country without leaving the city, we head for brunch at Friend of a Farmer on Irving Place between 18th and 19th Streets. The weekend brunch is extremely popular, […]

So Many Good Reasons To Go – Gemma Gets the G

So Many Good Reasons To Go – Gemma Gets the G

The celebrity-favorite Gemma, on the corner of 3rd Street and Bowery, is a destination where you can eat (really, really good food), drink (great specialty drinks or wine from their vast wine collection), and be merry (cause they don’t rush you out and there’s always a chance you’ll spot some celeb!) – all in one night. […]

E is for Ess-A-Bagel

E is for Ess-A-Bagel

There are many decent bagel places in Manhattan (Murray’s Bagels on 13th and Sixth Avenue, H and H Bagels on 80th and Second Avenue, and Barney Greengrass on 86th and Amsterdam Avenue, just to name a few…) where you can enjoy a good lox and cream cheese on a bagel. But almost no place does it better than Ess-A-Bagel. There are […]

Delicatessen is D-licious

Delicatessen is D-licious

     During fashion week, we Magpies headed down to Soho to check out Delicatessen and see if it was as good as we heard it was.  The restaurant design is very cool- a bi-level space with steel and glass garage doors that wrap around the entire facade and retract when open.  It also has a glass-roofed lounge […]

C is for Cafe Lalo!

C is for Cafe Lalo!

Located on the West side, on 83rd street between Amsterdam and Broadway, Cafe Lalo is a secret gem for a really late brunch (breakfast is served daily until 4 pm), lunch or a late night snack. It’s perfect for chocolate lovers (lots of chocolate cheesecake selections), breakfast lovers (they have a page devoted to international breakfast specialties) or […]

B goes to Buttercup Bake Shop

B goes to Buttercup Bake Shop

The weight wait is over! Finding the right cupcake takes a lot of patience, time and calories.  That’s why the professional cupcake eaters at Harriet Magpie have decided to help our readers eat responsibly when it comes to selecting their desserts.  Why regret eating a little too hard cake at Crumbs, a little too sugary […]

A is for Apotheke!

A is for Apotheke!

To say that we were pleasantly surprised by Apotheke is a complete understatement.  This lavish cocktail bar is hidden in Chinatown in a slightly sketchy alley with an unassuming bouncer hanging outside its door. However, upon entering Apotheke, we were immediately drawn in by its unique look and subdued decadence- pale, painted exposed brick walls,  plush red velvet couches, and glistening chemistry […]
