Looking for a new place to grab some grub and a tasty cocktail? Stop by the new SoHo hotspot Chalk Point Kitchen & The Handy Liquor Bar. It’s serving up market to table cuisine and some serious Manhattan cocktails. Matt Levine and his team have certainly taken eating out to another level. Read all about it my latest post for CBSNewYork.com.


223. I Might Name My First Born Chobani


1. Apparently, Chobani had its own line of honey.


2. And olive oil


3. Also, this is the most refreshing thing I’ve ever eaten.

Chobani SoHo

Bottom line – go to Chobani’s SoHo yogurt bar if you’re in New York City. My prediction is that this little gem (and yummy protein-packed snack) will become the go-to place for models who are busy running on go-sees. Although, they’ll probably just get the plain yogurt flavor while I’ll most likely try all ten. The store also has specials like Smoked Salmon + Dill, which sounds a little scary but I like a brand that takes risks. Chobani will even let you email them new flavor ideas. I thought I loved this yogurt back when I discovered their  pineapple flavor:

But now my affection for the Greek yogurt is at a whole new level. So, if you haven’t heard from me in a while, you might want to see if I’m passed out on the cedar benches inside the store. There may or may not be honey running down the side of my face. But that’s okay, I can always buy more. Then I can make these yummy recipes.

*Note to self: Last time I visited here, a shaman walked up to me and gave me her card as I was enjoying my Pistachio + Chocolate concoction. She apparently has healing powers (and a giant butterfly tattoo on her chest). Here’s a visual:
