En La Escena Screening

I attended the screening of TV Show pilot En La Escena last night. It’s great entertainment and will be on TV in no time.

And I got a photo op with some of the hostesses of the show!

etourisme: another French blog praises OTI

etourisme.info (i like that “.info”) talks about us today. They do a nice job recapping what we do.

Jay McCarroll is ontheinside!

We’re profiling fashion designer Jay McCarroll this week. He won the first season of Project Runway before moving to NY.

Last week, there were rumors that Jay was homeless based on a New York Mag article. Apparently, he was just messing with them as you can see in this video he released shortly thereafter.

Thanks Jay for sharing your NY!

Stay out of the rain

It’s chilly and rainy today. Tuck into a cafe and have yourself a warm drink.
Here are some suggestions from our peeps:

Gretchen Mol says the cafe con leche at Sucelt on West 14th Street:

On the go with Carlos

Walking around on Saturday afternoon, I stopped by Yuka Bar in the East Village with my friend Ross. Our bartender, Carlos, was an Argentinean fellow who served us a couple good bloody mary’s. I asked him his favorite Argentinean food in the city.

Carlos recommends:
Boca Junior Restaurant
8108 Queens Boulevard
Elmhurst, NY 11373
(718) 429-2077

He says there are a ton of soccer posters (Boca Juniors is a top soccer club), history and a great atmosphere. As far as dishes, Carlos mentioned the Asada and Churrasco.

We later stopped by La Esquina (not the downstairs part but the open-air stand) for a burger and fish taco.

A group of Chinese girls were celebrating a bachelorette’s party.

That area around Broome and Mott is fascinating. You have the tourists of Little Italy, Chinatown and a few other cultures mixing in as well. There’s a Bangladeshi deli right around the corner for example. I don’t mean just the owners, but the people in there are all watching Bangladeshi TV and catching up on the news from back home.

You can literally travel the world within just a few blocks. Even on the same block sometimes. Everybody’s doing their thing, it’s quite harmonious in fact, and only in NY probably.

On a side note, I also hung out with Zero. Zero likes to hang out in a bag.

Gretchen Mol at ontheinside.info

Here is our first podcast, with the wonderful Gretchen Mol.

The podcast consists of snippets of casual conversation. Gretchen chats about her return to NY after a year-and-a-half hiatus, getting re-acquainted with her favorite neighborhood, and her first-ever job in the city.

We’re looking to make more of these since we are recording all these great interviews. I haven’t published it on ITunes yet, but soon.
