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 […]

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 […]

The Standard Grill: Great Brunch, Standard Service

The Standard Grill: Great Brunch, Standard Service

Little Giant – Big On Taste, Little On Atmosphere

Little Giant – Big On Taste, Little On Atmosphere

Little Giant is  just an average-looking New York City restaurant. It’s basically a small box-like storefront with a nondescript-looking interior… …but they make one really memorable dish that makes up for its lackluster appearance: the Baked French Toast. Chef Julie Taras soaks thick slices of Pullman’s Bread (always fresh and delish) in an egg batter of maple syrup, cinnamon and […]

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 […]
