Some quickie recommendations!

Hello all,

I’m Zoe, the Features Editor here at On The Inside. I moved to the city in 2005 to study psychology at NYU, where I expect to graduate in May 2009. I grew up in Austin, Texas, but now I call it’s analagous Brooklyn neighborhood, Williamsburg, home. Hopefully, we will be getting some staff picks up on the site soon; in the meantime, however, here is my quick and dirty guide to my ‘hood…

 

 

 

For barbecue to-die-for… Fette Sau (354 Metropolitan Ave)
For cheap vintage finds… Beacon’s Closet (88 N.11th St)
For a weekend dance party… Royal Oak (594 Union Ave)
For artsy nightlife… Zebulon (258 Wythe Ave.)
For weekend brunch… Diner (85 Broadway)
For cheap falafel… Oasis (161 N.7th St)
For DIY shows and dancing… Death by Audio (49 S.2nd St)
For amazing sushi… Bozu (296 Grand St)

…and of course, my favorite place in Williamsburg, my house. But I can’t tell you where that is…

xoxo
Zoe

On the Go with Cameron Eve

I took my work and laptop to Manitoba’s on Avenue B yesterday and got chatting with the bartender, Cameron Eve, who also happens to be the lead singer of NY punk band The Choke.

I asked her to give me a city recommendation. She picked Amy’s Bread on 9th & 46th for morning coffee, with an extra shot. Must be good to get that extra kick.

Thanks again Cam.

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:

David Wain might be at Doma in the West Village:

As for myself, I just had Cafe Cafe by the office in Soho!

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.

On the go with Nelson Chunir

I hit a bar with my friend Marta this past weekend, and ended up brainstorming some ideas for OTI. Was a lot of fun. I call it the “Marta Sessions”:

Then, this gentleman Nelson Chunir started chatting us up. He’s Ecuadorean, and works as a super in various buildings on that block. I guess he was just hanging out after his shift.

We asked him his favorite place to eat in the city: Barzola, an Ecuadorean restaurant in Queens.

Barzola
9212 37th Ave
Flushing, NY 11372

He says it’s delicious, his favorite dish is the “Ceviche de Camaron” and the place turns into a dance party later in the evenings.

Sounds like a good old time.
