Mara’s Homemade — Review and Farewell

A little update on this post from A-Tooch dated back in 2009. Sadly, the last supper was celebrated at Mara’s Homemade in the East Village. Following a couple weeks on two separate trips in the south, I was going through some serious southern cookin’ withdrawl. Lucky for me, Mara’s Homemade is an authentic and delicious [...]

A-Tooch Travels: New Orleans and Austin Good Eats

You may have noticed (er, hopefully?) A-Tooch has been absent for a while. That’s because she just completed two back-to-back trips to the good ol’ south — stopping in New Orleans for Mardi Gras and Austin, TX for South by Southwest! My girlfriends and I roadtripped down to New Orleans, and en route dropped into [...]
