A ‘New Life’ Dinner

This week is almost done! Friday is approaching us.. yay! This means tomorrow is move-in day for me. In this morning’s post, I told you that my mom and I had moved a good amount of my belongings into the apartment last night. We were basically a scene of hot, sweaty messes by the time we were done, but this didn’t deter us from finding a place to go out to dinner! As luck would have it, we found a casual place called My Most Favorite Food right across the street (Upper West Side of NYC).

My Most Favorite Food started out as a bakery and the menu began to expand into lunch/dinner items due to its popularity. For those who are Kosher, the menu is filled with kosher-friendly items and for those seeking fresh, natural items, this is your place!

Upon opening the menu, both my mom and I were pretty pleased with how many dishes we had to chose from:

It didn’t take long for me to choose what I wanted:

Tomato Basil Soup

and…

Shiitake Mushroom Skewer

I also had 1 and a half small pieces of bread:

My mom’s dish went un-pictured but I can guarantee was super tasty; Rigatoni Melanzana–pasta with roasted eggplant, mozzarella, and tomato sauce.

Overall? The service was pretty fantastic, our waiter was attentive and quick. The two dishes I chose were good–not great–and quite pricey. The mushroom skewer didn’t have enough flavor for me but was saved by the feta cheese. I have no complaints about the tomato basil soup–it was light but full of flavor.

This was my first official ‘new life’ living in New York City dinner! And I am certainly glad that I spent it with my mom πŸ™‚

Question of the night: What are some important attributes for you when you dine out? Food, service, noise level?

  1. Yummm, good review! I’ll have to check it out next time I’m in the city πŸ™‚
    Food is definitely most important to me. I can take the noise, even the occasional bad service, but bad food guarantees I won’t return!

  2. Ahhh yayy!!! Good luck with the move! πŸ™‚

  3. Food is so important – but service is, too. If service is utterly terrible it can ruin even the most fantastic food.
