Happening 3/3 – 7/5 is Disney’s Taste of Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. Filled with over 20 booths of food, drinks and cocktails/mocktails. I was able to do 13 out of the 20 international food and beverage booths before my belly said “no more!” Here are our top picks for 2021.
Spring has Sprung and for her first Sunday Brunch of the year, Gina hit a local Brooklyn spot known for fresh seafood, a water view, & a super chill atmosphere. 🦞Get Yo Crustac-on at 🦀 Clemente’s Maryland Crab House in Sheepshead Bay.
Putting 2020 behind us, we’re slowly and cautiously venturing out of our tiny New York apartments and into the world. Like a noble creature of the night, we descended upon NOLA as the first location.

There are a lot of self-love Valentine’s Day guides out there, but we at SDNYC agree the best way to pamper ourselves is w/ CHOCOLATE. Try grabbing sweets from ur nearest Martha’s Country Bakery. They have 3 locations in Qns & 2 in Bklyn + delivery. ❤ Go ahead and treat yo’self! 🧁☕
There’s no challenge too big for resident foodie, Gina. After the ban on indoor dining in NYC last month, she found The Dutchess Biercafe. Tucked away in Fishkill, NY. Only an hour from the city — where luckily, indoor dining is still a thing!
When New Yorkers rushed out for their “Last Supper” before Monday’s indoor dining shutdown, Mermaid Eats decided to go out in flames. Gina visited the MOMO Hibachi Steak House & Bar in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn for dinner and a show!
When we asked Gina to review her favorite winter treat, we weren’t surprised by the morbid outcome. Watch as she dives her teeth into a gingerbread man at one of the oldest pastry shops in Ridgewood, NY. “Bye Bye, Mr. Gingerbread Man”
You don’t have to travel far if you’re missing New Orleans. The Bayou Restaurant is locally owned and operated, serving up NOLA inspired dishes and lamb chops that fall right off the bone. With matching décor and music, you’ll feel like you’re on Bourbon St and not Staten Island!
No, it’s not COVID Fatigue or Déjà vu. It’s National Donut Day … again! We don’t mind celebrating this holiday 2x a yr. Mermaid Eats headed over to her closest Donut Pub location for a box full of sugary goodness!
While wandering Hollywood Studios, Gina came across a delightful pastry that tickled her funny bone! The Backlot Express at Echo Lake features a Halloween Exclusives section including the Box of Bones Chocolate Éclair. Does it pass her moist and dark test?
Mermaid Eats made a quick trip to the East Village bakery, Sweet Generation. Not only are they serving delicious desserts, but they are a on a mission to help NYC’s youth. So, you can feel little less guilty about that unicorn cupcake.
