New pizza joint Fatto Americano slices up Neapolitan-style pies

(04/27/18 4:00am)

The team behind Destination Dogs has opened a new pizzeria on George Street called Fatto Americano. New Brunswick is full of pizza places, but none of them are like this one. Fatto Americano is a proper restaurant, occupying the space where The Dillinger Room used to be. A large bar serving up Italian and Italian-American inspired cocktails sits to the left, while the rest of the space is taken up by tables and booths.







Cappuccino Day recognizes classic Italian beverage in United States

(11/08/17 3:15am)

Today celebrates the famous caffeinated Italian drink in American fashion with National Cappuccino Day. The history of this Italian cafe staple makes it seem like cappuccinos have been around forever, but espresso culture didn’t really take off in Italy until around the 1900s. Before then, Italian coffee was more similar to modern-day Turkish coffee, an espresso-sized drink with the coffee grounds still in it. Once espresso machines were popularized, a new coffee culture in Italy was born.





Hidden Grounds fills gap in weekend dining with brunch menu

(10/05/17 12:33am)

This past weekend, Rutgers’ favorite local coffee shop, Hidden Grounds, debuted a new weekend brunch menu at their 4C Easton Ave location. Rutgers students sorely needed a place near campus to get a good brunch, and Hidden Grounds delivered. What makes this brunch menu unique is that every item on the menu is biscuit based, and just about everything is homemade.




Recipes from Rome: Adapting to food culture with street eats

(03/29/17 9:56pm)

When I was first planning my trip to Rome, I Googled and Pinterest-ed fervently. “What Not to Do in Rome,” “Top 10 Things You Should Know Before Going to Rome,” and other tips. One thing that came up again and again — besides not ordering a cappuccino after 11 a.m. — was that Romans didn’t eat on the streets. There’s a very romantic and long-perpetuated vision of Italians sitting for long lunches, ordering multiple courses, and apparently never going to work or school. This is, obviously, not true.


How to experience best of Eternal City in one short weekend

(03/20/17 2:58am)

You could take multiple lifetimes to explore Rome. I've been here for two months, and I'm still barely able to comprehend what a truly magnificent place it is. The absolute richness and density of the city make it difficult to plan a quick trip here. Of course, there are the "biggies," the places people tell you would be crazy to miss: the Colosseum, the Vatican and the Roman Forum, to name a few. However, you would be remiss if you spent all of your time waiting in line at big attractions instead of really exploring Rome.For first time visitors to the city, I recommend striking a balance: one "main attraction" a day, followed by plenty of exploring and eating. Rome is, after all, in the details.Day 1MorningColosseum and Forum TourFor around 30 euro per person, you can get a tour of both the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. It will take most of the morning, but it will be worth it. The Ancient Roman history will provide an excellent backdrop for the rest of your trip.AfternoonHead down to Testaccio to explore. This neighborhood used to be home to the slaughterhouses of Rome, but now it's a bustling district full of good food and often modern art. The Testaccio Market is a great place to walk around — you'll find stalls selling fresh produce and meat, as well as kitchen supplies and clothes. Get lunch from Mordi e Vai, a stand with some of the best panini in Rome.EveningHead back to your hotel, hostel or Air BnB and take a little rest. You're probably near the center, so now wouldn't be a bad time to do what I call the "piazza walk." Starting at Campo de Fiori, make your way to Piazza Navona and then the Pantheon. Get dinner at Armando al Pantheon, probably the last quality restaurant in the area. The rest of the night is up to you, there are plenty of bars throughout the city for you to satiate your thirst. If you want to take your drink to go, ask for "plastica."Day 2Morning


Recipes from Rome: Wining in Tuscany

(03/08/17 10:09pm)

Last weekend, on a cold and drizzly March morning, my roommate and I took a day trip with a tour group to the towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino in Tuscany for a wine tasting. We foolishly went out the night before, thinking we would sleep on the 3-hour bus ride to Montepulciano, but the stunning views of the countryside made it impossible to sleep. We stumbled out of the bus onto the asphalt of the bus depot, blinking at the light and shivering a bit from the cold mist. It was already beautiful.
