What we're about

New York Food Lovers & Activities has just mysteriously vanished from Meetup's site, so as a longtime organizer, I'm starting my own group! In the past, we've tried restaurants from Croatian to Laotian to Somali (and virtually everything in between), so I'm continuing that tradition here. Looking forward to meeting some fellow ethnic foodies soon!

Traditional Russian fare @ Tzarevna


Ideally suited for chilly temperatures, Tsarevna (translating to the daughter of a Tzar) specializes in modern Russian classics such as Wagyu beef stroganoff and naturally, dumplings galore. Please feel free to preview the menu here:

Classic French cuisine @ Cafe d'Alsace

Café D'Alsace

Just in time for Restaurant Week (many thanks to Glenn for the suggestion)! Cafe d'Alsace pays homage to the region in eastern France (on the west bank of the upper Rhine, next to Germany and Switzerland). As such, Alsatian culture blends Germanic and French influences.

A third-generation chef from France, Cafe d'Alsace's Philippe Roussel began his culinary career by following in the footsteps of his chef/restauranteur father. Chef Roussel’s passion for food translates to Alsatian classics: think tarte flambé; crocks of potée Alsacienne with white beans, cabbage and bacon; and a renowned casserole called baeckeoffe.
