Tia Pol
205 10th Ave
New York, NY 10011
(212) 675-8805

The moment I entered Tia Pol I could see it was a cozy and quaint tapas bistro that happened to be very popular with the locals as well as tourists. Because of the small size, there may be a wait at times, but owners Heather Belz and Mani Dawes make sure you are comfy and happy while at the bar.

Table Talk: Libertador
By Verky Arcos | 03/27/2009 - 16:15

Libertador
1725 2nd Ave.
NY, NY 10128

I think I may have just discovered a new spot to add to my top ten all-around fave restaurants. It’s ironic since I prefer seafood and veggie options and it’s an Argentinean restaurant. But I was delighted with a friendly staff and attentive owners, tables filled with families and young professionals, soft lighting and tasteful décor, and, best of all, good wholesome food.

212-929-5050
Dinner: Everyday, 4pm-midnight
Lunch: Mon-Fri, 12-4pm
Brunch: Sat-Sun, 11am-4pm


Cabrito
has this certain quality that makes you want to sit back and kick your feet up, even amidst all the people dining and drinking. With the beats of artists like Biggie and Madonna in the background, I settled in for what would turn out to be a great night—just as I predicted.

Cold Stone Creamery

We all try to be health-conscious, but every once in a while it’s good to indulge. It makes you feel alive! I just got back from a Cold Stone Creamery tasting of all the delightful new flavors they'll be featuring this summer and boy have they given us reason to indulge!

Table Talk: Titanic Restaurant
By Verky Arcos | 03/10/2009 - 18:30

Titanic Restaurant
486 Market St
Newark, NJ 07105
(973) 589-6166

This friendly restaurant dubbed partly after the infamous cruise ship predictably has a nautical theme going for it. Titanic is located in the Ironbound section of Newark, a culturally rich district known for their large Portuguese community. It’s not the trendiest spot, but it’s the perfect place to dine if you’re with a large group with a healthy appetite.

Yerba Buena
23 Avenue A
NY, NY 10009
212-529-2919

When my girl and I walked into this small eatery we were expecting your typical Latin fare with a twist—but typical it was not. The vibe was cozy but chic and the décor minimal with close attention to detail.
