If you haven’t had lunch yet, I suggest you do so prior to reading this post. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Finished? Oops- you have a little something – in your teeth…there, yep…got it. Where was I? Restaurants!
Here at Miz Mooz we spend more time than we should probably admit talking about food; What’s for lunch? Where are you going for dinner? Who’s going to go buy cookies today? I’m hungry. I’m so full… and so on and so forth. Great debates have raged over the virtues of peanut butter M&Ms served cold, where to get the best dried mango, and kale chips- love ‘em or hate ‘em? So, we gave two team members the chance to expound on their current favorite restaurants in NYC for your reading pleasure. First up- Drea, and her pick Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque
Drea lists Mighty Quinn’s as some of the best BBQ she’s ever had, and she hails from the south- girl knows her BBQ! This East Village spot describes their barbeque as Texas style meets the Carolinas style- Texalina! A name fit for a celebrity couple, for sure. In addition to the classic BBQ joint fare, like brisket, pulled pork, and burnt ends, they have an edamame and sweet pea salad and a fresh ginger ale that is like the nectar of the gods. I mean, look at this!
If a giant slab of delicious meat carved by tattooed hunks is not your speed, walk a block south and try our lovely Linda’s go to, Nomad. The polar opposite of Mighty Quinn’s, the menu at Nomad is influenced by the cuisine of North Africa- Moroccan, Berber, and French flavors are plentiful. Linda loves to cozy up with her husband at a corner table for mussels, steak frites, and a bottle of wine, the perfect way to unwind after a busy workday.
