A Taster's Journey is a newsletter on food, wine and travel. After 15 years of studying, tasting, teaching, and selling wine, I created this newsletter to not only share my passion about wine, but of food and travel as well. Each month I hope to share wines that I am drinking, food that is in season, restaurants that I have enjoyed, and places I have traveled. Enjoy!"


Worth Seeking Out…

  • Daisy May’s BBQ is a great spot to enjoy BBQ. They serve several styles of BBQ, for example: KC or Memphis ribs, Carolina pulled pork sandwich or New Mexican chopped rib sandwich. If you can’t visit their store at 623 W 11th Ave in NYC, try their Texas chili from one of their carts scattered throughout Manhattan. There website is www.daisymaysbbq.com.
  • Farm fresh corn and heirloom tomatoes are just hitting the farm stands and they are delicious. They will at their peak through mid-September.
  • I have fond memories of those casual clam/lobster shacks north of Boston, and a recent visit to The Mermaid Inn in NYC reminded me of that experience. It is not quite as low key, but being in the East Village and eating on picnic tables is far from pretentious. The fried oysters melted in your mouth and the lobster roll was spectacular. 96 Second Ave NYC, (212)674-5870
