How many Jamaican restaurants in NY city you know ? None!!!!!! Miss Lily’s is owned by the same people who run La Esquina. My photos are the dinner I had but the lunch menu is much cheaper. Also next door they have a Cafe and To-Go & Radio Lily Studio 🙂 I was here when they first opened and recently I went back with my friend Tommy in October but they are still doesn’t has full liquor license. They serve wine & beer, saki for now. 

PS-They opened another one in East Village. Miss Lily’s 7A Cafe

Ed’s Lobster Bar

www.lobsterbarnyc.com   Two locations 222 Lafeyette St, NYC & 25 Clinton St, NYC


Hello is it summer in the city (^_^) in February? This place brings the feel of New England / Long Island fish shack right to Soho. It’s the middle of winter and I’m imagining wearing a summer sundress & flip flops with the bright light, white walls & marble counter and open raw bar kitchen. Though the place is small with a dining room in back, the best location is the counter so make sure to grab a good seat. Order a chilled Sauvignon Blanc and watch the guy crack open the lobsters and oysters. This place is famous for its lobster roll ($27 market price) & raw bar but I didn’t order any of that as I want to try something new.   I started with the crab & artichoke dip (great but Freeman’s artichoke dip places the bar high) and enjoyed their tuna tartar with sea salted zucchini tempura.  The skate, the fresh fish of the day, was a great choice simply seasoned and seared in olive oil & butter.  P.S. Who’s Ed? Owner/chef Ed McFarland worked at Pearl Oyster Bar, which I adore for 6 years before opening his own place. Make sense!!

ps  Ed’s Lobster bar now has 3 location in city of New York. I can’t wait to patrol neweast Lower East Side location.
