See Ya Later, Brown Bag!

I’m dedicating this week’s article to something my friends and I love: food. There’s nothing better than catching up with my girlfriends over some tasty sushi or pasta. I wanted to share a few places where I absolutely love to grab a bite to eat in between classes or after a long day at work.


This Little Italy eatery is the perfect place to go if you’re craving some Japanese or Thai cuisine. Tastu offers a variety of appetizing dishes, including Godzilla and White Dragon maki specials.
