Eating around Queens (NYC) with Meyhem Lauren (Vice Munchies)

 

 

Hey curious readers!

I’m currently traveling and a lot of new posts are brewing in this food obsessed brain of mine. I will be pouring over them once I return, stay tuned! In the meantime I wanted to share a past article I did for Vice Munchies, inspired by my last trip to NYC this past December 2016 (f*** is it Spring already?!)

I caught up with Rapper/Star of Viceland’s TV show F*** that’s Delicious, Meyhem Lauren to get a taste of Queens, NYC:

38 Best Restaurants in Florence for Eater

 

There are a few mantras I live by:

“There are only two mantras, yum and yuck, mine is yum.”― Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker (one of the greatest love stories I’ve ever read)

“Work is love made visible. And if you can’t work with love, but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work.” ― Kahlil Gibran

“The tortoise heard his taunting jeer, But still resolved to persevere, You may deride my awkward pace, But slow and steady wins the race.” The Tortoise and the Hare, Aesop

All which can explain my silence around these blog’s parts, not laziness I assure you! I’ve been incredibly busy, more busy than I’ve ever been: testing out eateries (yum) designing a new food tour in Bologna (love) and somehow magically meeting article deadlines (slow and steady wins the race).

To answer your question however, Trattoria is where you eat home-cooked food, family-style service at blue-collar prices, Ristorante is white table cloth with higher quality food and service and usually better wine selection. Osteria used to be a place like a tavern where you’d just go to drink and have simple food, and historically where you could sleep too like an Inn, the original name for Osteria roots from Hostaria.
