Pipa, a Spanish tapas restaurant owned by ABC Carpet & Home and Chef Douglas Rodriguez is an absolutely gorgeous venue. Romantic, dimly–lit chandeliers, antique mirrors and a cozy wooden and brick wall dining room make you feel as though you've been transported back in time.

Yerba Buena Perry
1 Perry Street
New York, NY 10014
I’ve been highly anticipating the opening of the new Yerba Buena because I loved the first one and, honestly speaking, Perry Street is closer to my hood. Since it’s opening less than a month ago, the new YB has been flooded with foodies. After finally managing to snag a reservation, I can see why.

As of right now, the only way to find this newest addition to the Pio Pio empire is to accidentally stumble upon it. It’s location is not even posted on the website yet! So, of course, when I came across it while walking down the street, I just had to make a detour to stop in.

With a name like Chilam Balam, which translates to “Book of the Jaguar” (a reference to the Mayan prophecy that the Earth’s current cycle will end in 2012) you know this brand new Mexican eatery in Chi town will be pushing the culinary envelope.

Prime Outlet International
4969 International Drive
Orlando, FL 32819
Recently, I found myself in sunny Florida and I was super excited to check out the great designer outlet center, Prime Outlet International. But no matter how much of a shopaholic I am, after walking for hours with the sun beaming on my face, I began to feel worn out, hungry, and exhausted. I was not looking forward to the nasty food court offerings available at most outlets, so imagine my surprise when I came across Kafe Kalik!
