If you have an apartment large enough to host your group of friends you're probably not looking to cook for a crowd. If you're looking to skip the craziness of NYC sports bars but are in search of a seat, a view, pitchers (or bottles) and a steady flow of food, we got you covered!

Inside, the mishmash of table-clothed dining to your right, huge food photos plastered to your left (are those coffee beans?), combined with the […]
Pip’s Place; Gluten Free Bakery on the Upper East Side
It was 2006 when Erin McKenna opened up BabyCakes, slinging her amazing gluten-free (and vegan) baked goodies from a cute, tiny storefront on the Lower East Side.
