We’ve been to Piccola Cucina a couple of times and we never hesitate to go back again and again, and again!

Celebrities like the mega influencer Chiara Ferragni and her husband Fedez, and other big names like Owen Wilson, Adam Devine, Katie Holmes, Cuba Gooding Jr, Duran Duran and so many others also love the spot! You might even bump into one of them!

Their 4th location was scheduled to open early March and now they were finally able to celebrate their grand opening….and obviously they did not disappoint!

As soon as we arrived, the outdoor seating immediately called our attention. Every detail and the careful treatment with all the details made the area super cozy and inviting.

Having recently opened, we were happy to see they were already pretty busy with old (and many new) clients having fun and respecting all safety protocols.

Well, we were excited to try their Upper East Side menu and this time, different from the previous post we wrote about them, we left space for their delicious desserts!

This is what we had:

  • Antipasti: Octopus Caprese with burrata cheese , tomato confit and basil
  • Main Dish #1: Pasta – Busiati with salmon and artichokes
  • Main Dish #2: Pasta – Spaghetti with seafood (mussles, shrimp and calamaris)
  • Dessert: Tiramisu
  • Dessert: Semifreddo Mandorla – an ice cream-like option!

We paired the meals with red wine and an Espresso Martini – to give it a twist! And, if you enjoy Espresso Martinis, they really know how to make this cocktail to perfection!

Chef Philip Guardione truly never disappoints and is always adding amazing new creations to the menu or the daily specials, so you can be sure to be surprised – regardless of which location you decide to go to!

And lastly, of course the staff and the entire team was extremely knowledgeable with all the dishes, super polite and friendly and most of all, very welcoming…making our night a perfect dinner in New York City! Bravissimo!

We can wait for our next time!

Motorino Pizzeria: An Authentic Taste Of Naples Outside Italy

Dining Motorino Pizza Oven Credit Nick Solares for Motorino

Motorino offers a large variety of delicious pizzas on its menu, besides other dishes aside from pizza. Clams, meatballs, salads… When I went there I wanted try the Napoletana pizza style. Like that proverb says: “When in Rome do as the Romans do”.

I love pizza! I suppose you do too. The Upper West Side is one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city and I truly enjoy to hang out there.

One day, after running some errands I got really hungry. I decided to look for a cool spot to have a nice meal. That was when I saw a place with a small line outside that intrigued me. I looked inside and it was small, but it was also cozy and inviting. “I’m gonna have pizza for lunch today”, I thought to myself.

As soon as I walked inside Motorino I was greeted. The décor was simple with some frames on the wall, marble tables, steel chairs. Pretty simple, yet comfortable.

A highlight was the brick-oven. Brick-oven pizzas are the best, in my opinion, and at Motorino all doughs are baked in house. I noticed the guests were really diverse. Some were alone, other in couples, while some had children. It’s definitely a family-friendly place.

The venue offers a large variety of delicious pizzas, but you can find other dishes besides pizza, as well. Clams, meatballs, salads… I was craving to try their Napoletana pizza style. As the proverb says: “When in Rome do as the Romans do”. In this case, we’d switch Rome for Naples…

After a while trying to pick the best option to kill my hunger, I ordered a traditional Margherita.

It’s made with both Pecorino and Mozzarella cheeses. The crust was terrific and the sauce very tasty and balanced. It was cut into 4 regular slices. So, depending on how hungry you are you could eat it alone or share with a friend.

I was able to eat 3 slices that day and I took the leftover home, of course. It was delicious! I didn’t have alcohol, but they have a decent selection of beers and wine to pair. I knew it wouldn’t be long until I’d come back …and I did.

A month later I returned with my roommate. This time I ordered the Soppressata Piccante. Soppressata is an Italian dry salami and it’s picante (aka spicy) because the pizza comes with chili flakes on it. I was really anxious to check how that combination would come out. Result: I loved it! I shared it with my roomie that loved it too.

The Napoletana style pizza was approved! Yum! To finish the meal in style, we ordered Tiramisu for desert. Fantastic! I love Italian food in general and Motorino really knows how to prepare them.

If you don’t live close enough to the Upper West Side or that neighborhood is simply not your cup of tea, Motorino has 2 more locations across town – a 2nd in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn.

So, if you’re craving great, traditional Italian pizza, give it a shot and share with us what you chose from the menu. For other great pizza spots in New York you might also want to try Roberta’s in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Sag Harbor: The Celebrities’ Secret Town in New York

Day Trips and Travel Sag Harbor Main Street Fernanda Paronetto

Have you heard of the celebrities’ secret town in New York? Shhhh! Sag Harbor is a charming village in Long Island that dates back to the early 1700’s. It’s a great place to explore over the weekend!

I always tell people about how beautiful the state of New York is and, to prove how amazing day trips or weekend experiences can be, I picked one of my favorite spots to show you: Sag Harbor!

Sag Harbor is a charming village in Long Island that dates back to the yearly 1700’s. It was considered the 2nd most important seaport, after New York City, of course and was known as a thriving whaling port from 1760 through 1850.

It’s close the to the North Fork, where we recently did a video at an amazing winery called Macari Vineyards and saw one of the biggest wine bottles I had ever seen! Obs: It’s another great place for a weekend adventure!

Anyway, Sag Harbor it one of my favorite spots and “Yes!”, celebrities love it too! It’s the celebrities’ secret town in New York, that they head to when they want to get away from everything and everyone. Sorry celebs! Busted!

I chose a few spots in town to share and help you with your itinerary, while you’re there. But, there is just so much to do that I’m sure you’ll be able to explore on your own and find out other great places!

I do recommend to go for, at least, a weekend, but you can also risk a day trip! Last case, you can just book last minute a room at one of their beautiful hotels.

Oh! And before you start, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and spread the love for New York!


Main Street in Sag Harbor

Day Trips and Travel Sag Harbor Main Street Fernanda Paronetto

Sag Harbor’s Main Street is so charming that you can literally spend a few hours just walking up and down.

You’ll have a great time exploring all the local shops, design stores, gift shops, great restaurants, salons, book stores – like Berry & Co (formerly Harbor Books) on the picture above, cafés, donut shops, and so much more!

I couldn’t stop walking into every single venue I found and even the local market I walked in to find fresh and delicious goodies that are not always easy to find in the city!

The architecture really resembles those cute port towns from centuries ago and everything is super well preserved.

It’s a great place not only for family and kids, but also friends, couples, elderlies. There is a place for everyone to enjoy the beauty of the little town!

I mean, it’s got something for everyone!

Baron’s Cove

Day Trips and Travel Sag Harbor Barons Cove Hotel Pool

As I said in the video, Sag Harbor has many great hotels to stay, but this time I chose to share Baron’s Cove.

We’ve featured them before and I really love the property! They are a 4-star waterfront hotel with 67 rooms and fantastic amenities.

There are rooms with private garden terraces, harbor loft suites with balconies, village rooms as well as dog-friendly rooms – so your canine friend is super welcome!

You’ll find countless activities to try, like the heated saltwater pool, tennis court, gym, spa services, summer BBQs and lobster bakes, fireplace during winter, etc. And still, complimentary beach service with transportation, beach picnic lunch options, as well as an onsite concierge! Can’t get any better!

In addition, Baron’s Cove is also the only venue in Sag Harbor featuring live entertainment every night during the summer season. So, there is always something fun going on!

Famous artists, musicians, literary names such as Jackson Pollock, Billy Joel and Truman Capote have been regular guests, back in the days! Pretty awesome, right?

Their restaurant serves all-American food and has a fantastic and privileged view of the marina, that is just across the road.

It’s location is very convenient and it’s just a few minutes walking from Main Street!

Even though it can get quite chilly during the winter, it’s great to go with a loved one, or friends to enjoy a peaceful weekend. So yes! It’s a great place to go any time of the year!

Dopo La Spiaggia

I love Italian restaurants, so I decided to feature one of the best gems in town: Dopo La Spiaggia.

All restauranteurs, foodies, celebrities and the gorgeous crowd in town are always there enjoying their delicious dishes and drinks!

Owned by Chef Maurizio Marfoglia – that was super kind to meet us at the restaurant – has created a fantastic, seasonal menu with a variety of local ingredients. All very, very fresh!

The sun was out, so we decided to sit at the charming outdoor patio, with another great view of the marina. The patio has a cozy environment, with tables set close together and a breathtaking green wall from end to end!

Menus are updated regularly, and time time we chose two dishes to try:

  • Tagliolini – squid ink pasta, bay scallops, shrimp, calamari, chili and tomato. Note: it does have a spicy kick!
  • Branzino – poached sea bass, tomatoes, spinach with white wine.

Of course, both dishes paired with fantastic wine – one white, one red! As Italians say: Perffeto!

I’ve also heard from friends that other dishes are also must-haves, like the super creamy burrata, the homemade ravioli is perfectly done with wild mushrooms, ricotta cheese, vidallia and crushed tomato sauce. Plus, all sea dishes are very tasty and well-served.

Ah! Dessert, yes! You can try their stellar tiramisu and the berry tart with crème Anglaise. The portions are good to share, in case you were curious!

Buon Appetito!

Hours:
Monday, Thursday – Friday: Dinner from 5:30pm
Tuesday & Wednesday: Closed

The Buddha Berry

Last, but surely not least, we finished the day at The Buddha Berry, a dessert spot to satisfy your sweet tooth!

The spot is loved by everyone in town! They not only sell self-serve frozen yogurts, but also crêpes, waffles and still have a coffee bar, with organic coffee!

They’ve recently started serving vegan yogurt with almond milk and natural ingredients, which had been a huge success!

Of course, I decided to try their famous frozen yogurt. Nancy, the owner, sources countless toppings from all over the world and brings them to her delicious store. There are so many options that it was actually quite hard to pick and choose the ones I wanted. I mean, I wanted to serve myself a bit of each one! Lol!

Hours:
Monday – Thursday: Noon – 9pm
Friday & Saturday: 10am – 10:30pm
Sunday: 10am – 9pm

As I said, there are so many more places to visit and explore in town, so don’t be shy to walk around and get lost – literally! Oh! And do visit their Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum, set in an 1845 Greek Revival mansion featuring whaling exhibits and a shop with handmade gifts.

I’m sure you’re going to have one of the best weekends away from the city and will want to come back again, and again, and again!

The Ship NYC: A Secret Soho Restaurant In A Basement

Dining The Ship NYC Restaurant Bar Counter

If you are walking through Lafayette Street, in SoHo, and see a little door saying The Ship NYC. Walk in and you’ll surely have a pleasant surprise! This secret Soho restaurant, in a basement, will take you on a journey!

Slider

One of our Contributors, Lygia Santos, went to The Ship NYC the other night and tried their amazing drinks and delicious food. This Soho restaurant is a great option of a special night! Owned by Michael Auerbach, it’s definitely an experience worth having in NYC!


“As I walked into the bar founded in 2014, I was immediately approached by one of the owners, Cervantes Ramirez, that gave me a fantastic tour around the place. He is also the head bartender there and very well known in the New York bar scene.

The drinks were both very refreshing and perfect for the NY summer. I tried the sangria with gin, allspice dram, pinot noir, orange, lemon, served on cracked ice and a super traditional piña colada.

If you are not a huge fan of cocktail drinks, it’s ok! You can have one of their excellent draft beers or try their wine list. Oh! The “Bartender’s Choice” is always a good pick if you’re the adventurous type!

The kitchen, managed by Chef Lucas Cerqueira (Brazilian born), is simple, yet extremely tasty.

I started with a slow cooked octopus with celery root puree, horseradish and sunomono. Then I tried the citric ceviche served with red onion, fluke, cilantro and leech de tigre. They were both amazing.

But, if you don’t really enjoy seafood, they have other great options too!

You can order dishes like the chicken liver foie gras, charcuterie and a Korean style BBQ called kalbi sliders. They also offer small bites like the artichoke feta cheese spread and the homemade ricotta.

Robert Jamieson, the owner’s friend, is responsible for the unique and intriguing décor, that portrays the inside of a Ship. Very cool!”

They accept reservation only from Monday – Wednesday, with 24 hours advance. We do recommend!

If you have a sweet tooth, you can head for an additional dessert and coffee at a few places close by. We love Maman, the super famous and traditional Eileen’s Special Cheesecake and Cha Cha Matcha, that has been a sensation since it’s launch!

We also recommend simply getting lost around SoHo! It’s the best way to discover new places!

Opening Hours: 
Monday – Thursday: 5pm – 1am
Friday – Saturday: 6pm – 3am

Location: 158 Lafayette Street
