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 […]

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 […]

For Great Dining, It’s As Easy As ABC…Kitchen,That Is!

For Great Dining, It’s As Easy As ABC…Kitchen,That Is!

We’ve been dying to go to ABC Kitchen for months, but it’s really tough to get a dinner reservation. So when one Magpie suggested we try ABC Kitchen for brunch (even though it was an absolutely beautiful day outside!) we still jumped at the chance to give it a try. And it did not disappoint. The decor is modern eclectic, with […]

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 […]

AOC – Dine in a Backyard Garden!

AOC – Dine in a Backyard Garden!

Whenever we’re wandering aimlessly in the West Village, we always seem to aimlessly wander past AOC – located on Bleecker Street near Grove Street. From the outside, it looks like a tiny hole in the wall – but recently we discovered it’s so much more than what it seems. We were delighted to discover that […]

Vezzo Pizza – Thin in Crust, not in Flavor

Vezzo Pizza – Thin in Crust, not in Flavor

As we all know – there are millions of pizza places in NYC – sometimes, on a single city block!  So it takes a lot for a pizza place to set itself apart. We recently reviewed one of our faves, John’s of Bleecker Street– but if you’re looking for crispy, crunchy, thin crust pizza, there’s […]

Eat, Drink and Save Money: Bianca – Get A Meal For A Steal!

Eat, Drink and Save Money: Bianca – Get A Meal For A Steal!

Well it’s not really a steal…But for New York restaurants, Bianca is definitey worth your money in terms of portions and atmoshere.  It’s a cozy, romantic Italian bistro located on a very pleasant street lined with brownstones and shops on Bleeker near Bowery street. The restaurant is on the small side, and always busy on […]

Take Us Back to Pulinos, Puleaze!!

Take Us Back to Pulinos, Puleaze!!

Nothing is better in New York than good food, good wine, or good company. And last night we had the perfect combination of them all. We Magpies were looking for a trendy restaurant to go to that was popular and hopefully not too pricey. We decided to try Keith McNally’s (owner of Balthazar, Schiller’s and Minetta Tavern!) newest venue, Pulino’s, located […]

John’s of Bleecker Street…Keeping New York Stomachs Happy Since 1929

John’s of Bleecker Street…Keeping New York Stomachs Happy Since 1929

There are always long lines outside John’s of Bleecker Street, a pizzeria that has been in the same location since 1929. And as we Magpies know – restaurants can’t survive in NYC if the food sucks. So even though we knew going into John’s that the pizza would be good – we had no idea […]

Il Buco – Love Is Everywhere!

Il Buco – Love Is Everywhere!

 Il Buco has  always been written up as a great go-to restaurant in NYC. Located on Bond Street near Lafayette Street, it is a favorite of critics and foodies alike. So we were all on board when a Magpie suggested we check it out. We arrived at about 8:30 on a Saturday night, and the place was […]

We Loova Uva!

We Loova Uva!

We Magpies were looking for a cool place for dinner that was trendy (without trying to be) with good food and wine to impress some of our West Coast friends. When one Magpie suggested Uva, on Second Avenue between 77th and 78th Streets, we all agreed it would be the perfect place!  As you enter Uva, […]

Bohemian…It’s So Secret…Nobody Goes There!

Bohemian…It’s So Secret…Nobody Goes There!

Blink and you’ll miss Bohemian, a hidden Japanese gem on Great Jones Street near Bowery. There’s no name on the outside of the restaurant, and you can’t see it from the street – it’s tucked away behind a butcher shop. You also can’t just go – you have to know someone in order to get a […]

Make A Date To Go to Barrio Chino

Make A Date To Go to Barrio Chino

Where in the city is there a restaurant that’s unpretentious yet cool, with really good drinks and decent food that’s not ridiculously pricey? The answer that we Magpies all came up with is Barrio Chino, a (tiny!) hidden gem located at 253 Broome Street near Orchard. We happened upon this Mexican restaurant last summer and we’ve been back on a regular basis. […]

Schiller’s Dessert Is Tops – the Proof is in the Pudding!

As dessert lovers, we here at Harriet Magpie feel compelled to share with you one of the best-kept secrets in the world of NYC desserts. Since we’re chocolate lovers, we were a little hesitant to try the sticky toffee pudding on a recent trip to Schiller’s on the Lower East Side. But thank goodness 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 […]
