The Belly Files

2013

 
 

You’d think from the way my life revolves around food that I’d weigh close to 300 lbs. Well, somehow I’m still a lithe 185 lbs, a fact that completely contradicts the role food plays in my life.  It is the the driving force that dictates all.  This site is going to be a running diary of my culinary adventures.  It may includes restaurant reviews from a new place I visited in Manhattan, a recipe I created last night while cooking dinner for the family, pictures of some bespoke cocktails I enjoyed at a new lounge, or just musings on the epicurean life.  One item I’m excited about is my food bucket list.  These are culinary benchmarks that I just must indulge in before I die.  I just happened to cross one off the other night, by enjoying the otherworldly Black Label burger at Minetta Tavern, which I will be writing about shortly. 


I hope you will share in this journey with me either by sending me your own culinary bucket list, comments on the places I’ve reviewed, your own recipes, or any other way you’d like to partake in the conversation.

The Black Label burger at Minetta Tavern will change forever the way you view the burger.
