Harry’s  Best Boozy Brunch Deal IN NYC

You never have to twist my arm to go to Harry’s NYC. Located on Stone Street in the heart of the financial district, Harry’s has always served great food from lunchtime Steak Sandwiches to gourmet daily specials- go on Wednesdays for the Beef wellington; you’ll thank me) there’s a

dish for everyone. But what most people do not know about Harry’s ( Menu ) is that when you order an entree, you get 90 minutes of unlimited champagne for FREE! It’s an INSANE deal to have during COVID. The menu is super clean and simple. Great classics prepared freshly for you and with a glass of complimentary champagne. How can you say no?

Brunch time chill

A few weeks ago, we had the French Toast, Smoked Salmon Benny, and Tuna Crudo during my last visit. Yes, I’m a fancy bitch. Look at all of these dishes; they look as good as they taste, I promise!

More Than just Steak Killer Cocktail Program

And to round it all out, I had my signature drink as well: Tito’s martini, extra dirty, served up. Plus, Harry’s prepares it with a twist: a sidecar! It’s like getting 2 drinks for the price of one. Don’t you hate getting a tiny martini and looking at the waiter with the ” you got to be fucking kidding me look”? Well, they give you a bit extra or, in other words, they aren’t cheap with their martinis, unlike some other places.

As a bonus, this will give you a great opportunity to try out the saving tip from my earlier blog MONTHLY SAVING CHALLENGE RESTUARANT SAVER RESULTS<link>. Because Harry’s isn’t too much of a strain on the wallet, brunch at Harry’s let’s you try my trick out at a lower risk. Good luck!

Meaty Cheesy Bread Pulls Recipe

Meaty Cheesy Bread Pulls


Bitches Love Cheese, I love Bitches therefor I love Cheese!

Bitches also LOVE Fatty meat! I love Bitches! I give them bitches some of my SPECIAL fatty meat…..

You want more of a explanation?  I’m fat! I like cheesy fat bready food.


1 round or oval sourdough bread loaf (1 lb)

1 pkg  of Fresh Mozzarella  how many ounces? AS MANY AS YOU THINK YOU CAN STUFF INTO THE BREAD! ( I used about 12 ounces you can use more or less accordings to your taste. )

12 ounces of salami, capicola and  prosciutto  ( I did equal parts of each )

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 green onion, thinly sliced

6 cloves garlic, minced ( if you both eat it then you wont taste it )


Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Use serrated knife to make vertical cuts, 1 inch apart, in top of bread loaf, being careful not to cut through to bottom of loaf.  Turn bread 1/4 turn; repeat cuts.

Cut the cheese into 1/4 inch logs and stuff it into the bread!

Slice the meat into strips and render over a medium flame. Remove once crispy

Mix remaining ingredients; drizzle AND STUFF over bread.  Wrap bread with foil; place on baking sheet.

Bake 25 minutes or until heated through, unwrapping read after 15 minutes

BAM then you got yourself some good shit! I recommend a nice bottle of malbec and handcuff as a pairing.




Il Mulino Prime

As you walk into Il Mulino Prime (331 W Broadway), you cannot miss the beautiful the decor and the pure essence of pretentiousness.  But as the old saying goes you can’t judge a book by its cover; Il Mulino Prime is a perfect example of that quote.  The pretentious atmosphere only exists because it’s in the heart of Soho, if it was anywhere else it would stylize in a more traditional non-

modern fashion.  But in all honesty that’s the only fault I could find in Il Mulino Prime.  The staff is beyond fantastic, Bruno, the head bartender or waiter whatever you want to call him is the nicest guy you’ll ever encounter.  He’s a superb example a good old-fashioned waiter should behave.  He brings an old school Brooklyn feeling with a little bit of an Italian accent.  He is the perfect example of what a waiter should be in my opinion.  He offsets the modern decor with a feeling of home; He brings the essence of Italian food to the table without losing the elegance of the food.  But what does that mean?

Italian food as a whole is designed for family-style eating.  Yes, Italian restaurants can have single portions, but if you look at any famous Italian restaurant in New York City the menu is designed for family-style large portions, large plates, large groups loud of PEOPLE TALKING to each other, and eating together as a family.  The problem comes down this style restaurant would not work in Soho.   Modern fashion, luxury and elegance are a must for the survival of the business in Soho.  The menu at Il Mulino Prime is no

exception to this demand for style.  All the dishes are carefully thought out.  Every single item on the plate is one the plate for a reason.  Even the lemon on the side of the seafood dishes is carefully wrapped in fabric so that your food is protected from the possibility of any lemon seeds touches it.  The attention to detail is matched by very few restaurants that I’ve ever been to in my life.  But the food is only half the battle.  The staff at the location is the other half.  Just because you have great food and decor doesn’t mean that a restaurant will survive New York City.  There are hundreds upon hundreds of restaurants in New York City that fail every year

because they’re missing that one piece.  In Il Mulino Prime’s case the staffing was carefully selected to allow patrons opportunity to interact with someone who’s both sweet and professional at the same time.  Bruno is able to have a quick joke with the patron but still knows the menu inside and out. He still knows the wine list.  He still knows all the information you need to become a more educated patron of the restaurant.  Bruno does this all without being overly cocky and offsetting.  Is this not a perfect combination for a waiter?

Now, what you have all been waiting for the food and a review of the $25 lunch special.  I’ve honestly had about 85% of the menu and have the pictures to prove it.  Instead of going item by item I will be going over my favorites and then just posting the remaining pictures. All of the dishes taste great.   For those of you who do not know about the $25 lunch prix fix at Il Mulino Prime is a special menu during the hours of 12 pm – 4 pm .  It allows you to order one appetizer, one dessert and one entrée for the low low price of $25.  Yes, a full meal to in the heart of Soho for only $25.

My favorite combination for lunch is the beefsteak salad, the wild salmon over asparagus and (finally the best of everything) cheesecake with a little bit of whipped cream on the side.  Why is this favorite combination you’re asking?  I like the large portions of bacon and tomatoes and it have  a  little vinaigrette -boom your mouth is set full of flavor and it’s semi-healthy.  Seriously look at the portions of bacon on top of that salad, how can you say no?  The wild salmon on the other hand is perfectly cooked.  It’s both healthy, clean, and will get me ready for the summer.  You know, I’m going to have a six pack…  Of beer.  Why I am selecting the cheesecake for my dessert? If you don’t know you shouldn’t be reading this blog. Cheesecake is the best shit on earth. In all honesty there is no bad combination of the menu it is all about what you like and want to eat at the moment.

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge

Can you teach an old Dog new Tricks; I don’t know most likely. Dogs are smarter than most the people I interact with on a daily biases. What I do know is that the re-branding of Circles café into Gulf Coast Bay Ridge (310 Bay Ridge Avenue) was a brilliant idea. The neighborhood was missing: Jamaican accent: some Island Flavor Mon. Is it real Island flavor? No, it’s flavored towards the neighborhood. If you want some hardcore ass jerked shit then take your ass to Myrtle Avenue. There you will find some good ox tail, jerked chicken, half the items sold out and your asshole on fire. Gulf Coast is targeting the neighborhood it is in Bay Ridge. I am not Knocking the food just laying it all out. The Food was good.

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge Cajun CalaMari

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge’ Cajun Calamari this is the shit you have to try it. The combination of sauces and Cajun spices blend perfectly. The dish comes out to be externally  well balances and the texture is great. Its not greasy or rubbery. What more can you ask for? Besides another drink…..

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge Zombie Of course I ordered a  zombie. Did you expect me to be on the wagon? Seriously have you read any of my other posts?

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge Coconut shrip   Gulf Coast Coconut shrimp was good. Honestly its a little hard to live up to the expectation that the calamari created. They were good and I would order them again and most likely every time.

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge Drunken Crawfish Pasta

My  entree was  Drunken Crawfish Pasta very flavorful and had some  kick to it. This isn’t your grandmothers pasta It has heat. IF you don’t like heat don’t get it! (I am measuring a white people spice scale.)

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge apple pie

Last but not least was the warm apple pie with ice cream on the side. Its apple pie with ice cream how the fuck can this be bad in any way? Like seriously I have never had a apple pie that I didn’t like!

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge should definitely be on your list of restaurants to try. The food is good, the drinks strong and it  not your  everyday Bay Ridge food. You can have burgers, wings, beer and pizza only so often before you get feed up with them. ‘


Coffee RX Lab in Bay Ridge

Coffee RX Lab Bay Ridge Belgian Waffles

My latest adventure of fatassness has led me to find Coffee RX Lab in Bay Ridge. See that shit in the picture above? Those sexy Belgian waffles were only $8. THAT’S RIGHT. 8 FUCKING bucks for a Belgian Waffle covered in Nutella , whipped cream and berries. It looks as good as it tastes.  People that is one sick deal! Coffee RX Lab Bay Ridge didn’t even go cheap on the indigents either; (Everything is fresh and made while you wait). The coffee is good also but I am a DD guy. I need 32 ounces of iced coffee in morning before anyone can even talk to me. Check out Coffee RX Lab Bay Ridge its good good spot to grab a quick snack and get going. Only issue I had with it was the hipsters….. they were nesting there… hours at a time….. THEY WERE EVERY WHERE… THE HORROR.  My advise run in, order and run out before they try to covert you to join them.  If you want to read more about it you can find it in this article.
