Casquade’s quiet store front
Everyday they have a new special that will make this a sure fire must stop destination on anyone’s NYC tapa trail.  I happened upon their $1 oysters.

Watch as my friend Katie Gray ogles over the picturesque oysters
My lady bro, Katie Gray was kind enough to accompany me.  Watch as she makes love to both the camera and the oysters.  Lately, I’ve been on a paleo kick so I stick to foods that the cavemen ate.  Obviously, Neanderthal men had endless stores of champagne which made it the perfect night to take advantage of their all evening long special of half off bubbly.
Casquade’s oyster were devine.  Fresh and light, all they needed was a quick spritz of lemon juice that created the perfect pairing with the champagne.
Serrano Ham
The serrano ham featured a bright smoky flavor.  Layer it with a cured pickle on bread for the perfect quick bite.
Bread, glorious bread
For carbohydrate fiends it’s a massive plus that they don’t skimp on the bread.  We ordered both the serrano ham and olive platter serving both pitted kalamata olives as well as a rich, creamy sharp olive puree slathered generously on crisp toast.

Cadaques Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato


Born in Virginia and raised on the mean streets of Garden City, Long Island, I’ve learned to appreciate any type of cuisine from a late night burrito and tatcho’s to a tasting menu and wine pairing. I’m a bit of an adventurer when it comes to food and am always up for an eating challenge where I can find one. I may or may not have eaten sixteen chili tacos to become “The Taco Queen” of a small hole in the wall Mexican eatery. I also couldn’t help myself from ordering whale in Oslo (please don’t tell Green Peace) and can’t resist a zany menu choice. A writer and performer, I like to pair my meals with a good play and you can find my reviews on New York Theatre Guide. Baking is a guilty pleasure and I’m constantly preparing confectionaries with surprises inside. I hope one day to compile all my recipes into one called “Get Stuffed”.I’m looking forward to the next culinary adventure I carve out and sharing them with you. I may just need to create an entire series devoted to “did they really just make this Asian/Mexican/Korean/Italian fusion a food truck?”. Cheers!
