From 2003, through 2010, I was a regular contributor for The Park Slope Reader and New York Spirits restaurant reviews. I really enjoyed being able to check out new restaurants and know about what’s happening in that world and around my community. An infrequent side-benefit was a free appetizer or beverage from a gracious manager or concierge, which was always appreciated and made my work even more fun and rewarding. Here are a handful of my favorites from those assignments and links to the restaurants.
