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.
As surely as spring weather will finally arrive, so shall basic pictures of smoothie bowls on the ‘gram. Shakespeare said that, I think. Smoothie bowls are a trend that hit our feeds a few years ago and haven’t seemed to slow down. If anything, the trend seems to be increasing.
In a sea of pizza parlors and halal spots, a cozy new restaurant has popped up on Central Avenue, tucked between Easton Avenue and Hamilton Street. Namli serves Mediterranean and Turkish cuisine in a bright, open space that's removed from the hustle of New Brunswick’s main streets.
Every year on Feb. 22, we celebrate National Margarita Day. It’s not clear why Feb. 22 was chosen to be the date of celebration, but we can only assume the first celebrators needed a break from February as much as all of us do. How can we pay our respects to such a historical and delicious cocktail? By drinking it, of course.
Mardi Gras marks the culmination of the Carnival season — the last big hurrah before the Lenten season begins. Depending on where you are in the world and who you're celebrating with, the Carnival season starts at different times, but it always ends with Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday.
As final exams approach, Rutgers students will look for any excuse to celebrate. If you're in desperate need of a study break, take out your stress and frustration in the kitchen. Dec. 4 is National Cookie Day, so grab a friend and some ingredients and get baking.
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.
Halloween is almost here, and whatever your Halloweekend plans include, you’re probably going to want to have a few drinks at home first. Instead of your usual pre-game beverage of choice, why not make things a little spooky?
Are you hosting a party at your house this Halloweekend? Getting together with some friends to get ready to go out? You’ll probably want some snacks. Instead of serving regular, non-festive snacks, get in the Halloween spirit with these creepy and cute snacks that will be the hit of your party.
One of the best parts of autumn is the food. After a hot summer spent eating ice cream and more ice cream, we can finally settle back into warm, comforting dishes. The weather has been unseasonably hot this October, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start embracing your favorite autumn dishes.
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.
New Brunswick has a new restaurant! Roosterspin just opened at 120 Albany Street (where Shaka used to be). They’re serving a Korean-inspired menu full of small plates, sushi rolls and noodle and rice dishes along with a great beer list.
Rome is famous for four types of pasta — cacio e pepe, gricia, amatriciana and carbonara. If you walk into any trattoria in Rome, you are likely to find at least two or three of these pastas on the menu (if not all four).
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.
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
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.
I know in New Jersey there’s probably still snow on the ground, but here in Rome, the weather is already getting better. As the days get warmer, I get fewer judgmental stares from old women who think I should zip my coat even though it’s 55 degrees outside. And with the change of temperature comes a change in the produce in the markets.
There are many things about Rome that are truly amazing: The fact that it’s been a city for almost 3,000 years, the amount of dogs there are or how sometimes you just stumble into a church and there’s a Michelangelo statue right in front of you.
I’ve been in Rome, Italy for about five minutes and already I can’t imagine myself being any happier anywhere else in the world. One of the main reasons for this is, of course, the food. It is so wonderfully easy to find somewhere delicious for a quick bite or a long, delicious meal.
It’s the holiday season, which means you probably have more exams, papers and projects than you know what to do with. We all want to have fun during the holidays, but it can be such a stressful and busy time that it just slips by. Don’t let that happen! Relax with a mug of hot, holiday cider and feel all of your worries melt away.
