If you are too, check out the full line-up of businesses offering lunch and dinner discounts for Throggs Neck.. Read More

Meet the Vendors of the 2016 South Bronx Farmer’s Market

On 138th street, between Willis Avenue and Alexander Avenue, a string of vendors have laid out farm-picked herbs and vegetables, and baked goods. Even if they can’t tell the difference between broccoli rabe and callaloo amaranth, the bright greens and reds are enough to attract passersby’s to further inspect the tables and crates under the tents at the South Bronx Farmer’s Market. The market is only in its third year, but it opened.. Read More

7 Things to Know About Snap Dog Expanding Uptown + FREE Hot Dogs Today!

It’s impossible to think about the 4th of July without hot dogs. But, beyond throwing a couple on the grill for summer celebrations, New Yorkers steer clear of the “dirty water dogs” peddled around city streets daily. Those dust-stained yellow umbrellas are as much part of our skyline as the empire state building and are an ominous reminder for what they’re selling. However, one NYC hot dog company is making-over franks one all-beef hot dog at a.. Read More

Views from The Bronx Brewery (Backyard) Opening Day Party 2016

The Bronx Brewery opened up their backyard for the spring and summer seasons this past Saturday, April 30th with the ultimate beer and BBQ-fueled kick off party. The balmy weather was as if the universe conspired for the Opening Day antics as a way of saying “you have my blessings, bros”. But even if that wasn’t the case, people would have still let loose with the unlimited libations on tap, inside and outside of the.. Read More

Late Night Food Crawl to Cơm tấm Ninh-Kiều Bx Vietnamese Restaurant

There’s that saying “nothing good happens after midnight”. The restaurant version of that would be ‘nothing good comes out the kitchen before closing’. You might get reheated pasta, you might get a truncated menu. Anything can happen. But when we found Com tam Ninh-Kieu on Yelp Saturday night at 7:30pm—an hour before close—we made the bet because of its 4 star rating.   It’s the kind of place you’d only.. Read More

Reducing Food Waste: Cooking Veggie Stir Fry with Morrisania WIC

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, “as much as 40% of the food produced in the U.S. never gets eaten” and “Americans throw away $165B worth of food every year”. Those are hard numbers to swallow considering how many families in the country, in neighborhoods like The Bronx, live in food insecure households. That’s why when the Bronx Food Blog teamed up with Morrisania WIC this month to celebrate.. Read More
