Blog for NY Outer Boroughs
I really enjoy the blog, NYCnosh.com. The writer and his friend visit various restaurants and review them on the blog. The best part is he/she includes photos of all the dishes. The blog seems to be updated at least weekly.
I would love to find a similar blog which would focus on the Outer Boroughs. Ideally, the blog would have lots of photos.
god, I yearn for a Brooklyn only blogger that really knows what he or she is blogging about. The AG is amusing, and he does now live in Park Slope, but dinner out w/Mum and Dad does get a bit tiresome. Ed Levine covers spots in Brooklyn and Queens sometimes like his recent top meatball heros piece, and when he says go, I follow. I love J. Slab - his tribute to the Red Hook Ballfields might be the singular best piece of food coverage ever - but his search for the perfect Banh Mi sandwich is a bit limited and not Brooklyn focused at all. And Salli Vates is very good but covers the same reaturants as everyone else blogging - Convivium - Farm on Adderly. etc.
Maybe I'll start doing Brooklyn only ;-)
Thanks Bearzie. We do cover the outer boroughs, but admittedly to a lesser extent than we do Manhattan. And we try to update at least three times a week or more.
As for blogs that talk more about non-Manhattan restaurants, we like Salli Vates's site: http://salli_vates.blogspot.com . She lives in Queens and regularly eats there, in Brooklyn, and Manhattan.
There's also The Porkchop Express: http://porkchop-express.blogspot.com , which does a ton of Brooklyn coverage.
Hope this helps,
I'm sorry, but I don't think AG is worth the time it takes to load his page.
I really find him grating and smug. Plus his photos are blurry and jaggedy and NONE of those recipes he posts is his own. He's also not a good writer. Kind of defeats the whole point of running a blog doesn't it?
