About

I don’t know man.

A nice girl told me to make a blog.

That’s the reason I do most things.

    Saw you on Bethenny getting married & ever after. You’re great- and remind me a lot of seth rogen, haha xo take care

  5. Nicole says:

    You are FANTASTIC!! Saw you on Bethenny Ever After last night, and found your blog by her RTing you. Love it!! You’ve got some talent, good sir. Take care!

  6. katie says:

    i saw you on bethenny’s show last year and was so disappointed she didn’t hire you…you really captured my attention and seemed so genuine. after seeing you appear on her program again last night i came looking for your blog (and found you thanks to an old post on chowhound). in my search though i inadvertently came across all the love you’re getting today in reviews of the episode, if you haven’t already noticed you really need to check it out. it never hurts to feel appreciated like that…hope the exposure leads to every opportunity you deserve!

  7. Bukker says:

    Okay, I too caught your cameo on Bravo and thought you were the most interesting part of the show. Your knowledge of good and interesting things to taste in NY intrigued me…..so thanks for allowing me to discover some of your world.

    Warm regards,
    Joe

    Your blog is incredibly insightful and candid. I enjoy it. Keep up the interesting work.

      You’re clearly very intelligent and have much to offer. And your prose is fantastic! As a fellow twenty-something, I really enjoy reading your blog and frankly, relating to you.

      Thank you for sharing your slice of life with us readers. We’re all rooting for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Genevieve says:

    I’ve had a crush on you since I saw you on TV last year and so glad that I saw you again last night. It is like you are Bethenny’s food soulmate! Glad I found your blog and keep up the awesome work!

  11. Mel says:

    Love your writing

  12. TLM says:

    It’s obvious you and Bethenny are food soulmates, but I suspect the reason she picked Max was that she wanted someone to be aggressive on her behalf when she didn’t have the energy or interest to do so herself. Not everyone has that affect. Unfortunately she picked someone who had those qualities, but was also lazy and a douche. My advice is to keep moving forward, and if opportunites as a result of BEA happen, grab them and see where they take you. And definitely write back to Genevieve, above.

  13. Eliza says:

    I, just like it seems several other have, saw you on Bethenny Ever After and you strike me as a remarkably kind and genuine person. I would very much like to meet you and just follow you around the city, eating everything (edible, that it) in sight. I wish you could also meet my brother, since I think you would get along. He knows all of the great places to eat in DC, and you two could swap tales of gastrointestinal indulgences.

    I also fully enjoy your writing. You seem at ease with who you are, which is very admirable. Keep branching out, you could take over the world if you so wish.

    Cheers!

  14. Dr Gini says:

    Dear Nick,
    What a treat to find you on TV tonight! Dr. T. often likes to relax by watching Bravo and she alerted me, con brio, that you were on Bethenny’s show discussing food. I hope that this exposure leads to good things. Think how few Latin students have any real impact on reality TV (or anywhere for that matter). Best of luck with your work.
    Yours,
    Dr. Gini

  15. Ashley says:

    Hi Nick,
    Like so many others I caught a clip of you in…well Bethennys show. I dont usually watch the show but of course your knowledge of great food in N.Y. captured my attention as it did many others. You were quite hard to find but so glad I did. I quite enjoyed reading your blog. I have a question for you: When begining your blog what state of mind are you in? Do you just get consumed by thoughts and blog them or do you really pre-meditate what you write? Thanks for taking your time to read, hope to hear back from you.

    Ashley H.

    • feitelogram says:

      Ashley-

      Thank you for the question. I do my blog once weekly (mostly) so there’s that sense in the back of my head “need to blog soon” that goes on for even the small readership I’ve had. Sometimes my friends bother me about it, but it’s more the perceived sense that I might let someone down that motivates me.

      Other than that, it’s a therapeutic impulse. The need to get something off my chest. The need to find meaning or make a story out of something bad or interesting that has happened to me. The need to take control of my own life or (to see it positively) to take ownership of it.

      Or sometimes I’m drunk and want to complain about my friends.

      :p

      Yours truly,
      Nick

  16. Mary says:

    Love seeing you on Bethenny Ever After! I searched for you on google and came across your blog. Keep up the great work!

  17. laura says:

    hi. you are fantastic.
    would love it if maybe you have a little spare time to put up a post about all your favorite food spots in NYC.
    ex. best mexican….
    best ice cream….
    or something like that.
    you seem to know your shit and would love your advice.
    thanks!!!! hope to see more of you! xo

  18. glo says:

    Nick-
    Love watching you on BEA. Wish she would’ve picked you off the bat. You have alot to offer in her world of food and beverage! Too bad for her she didn’t see it right away but great for us that producers see it now! Andy are you listening?!

  19. I just found your blog…I’m excited to start from the beginning and catch up with you!!

    -Lucky

  20. Texas says:

    Nick,

    Have you considered parlaying your food expertise into some sort of NYC foodie walking tour? I know I would sign up! (Maybe it could be up and running by the time I visit NYC in early May 2011!)

  21. Caryn says:

    Nick-
    Love you on Bethenny’s show. Had to immediately google and find your blog. Great to read it and get to know more about you. I wish you much success and look forward to following your blog and learning more about you. I hope you can get on Andy’s WWHL because you’d be a great guest!!

  22. lynn says:

    Looking forward to reading more. You’re quite a writer and have a really interesting blog! Keep up the great work.

  23. Karla says:

    I’m a food junkie. My weekends are consumed with finding local delights…I’m stuck in the burbs during the week…holy hell batman. I hope to see you more…whether on BEA or your blog. I second the NYC walking foodie tour…only if it’s led by you! You’re a doll. I am intrigued.

  24. Divakattgurl says:

    Found out about you through Eater. I love your blog… you are a man about food! Love it!

    Good luck with everything and one day you will have that hot girl!!

    See you in them *estreets*

  25. goosey says:

    Hi, Nice, are u on Twitter? Your blog is great! Can you email me your twitter handle or otherwise find me on Twitter? I’m “@gooseytang” Thanks!

  26. Mary says:

    THIS is just truly heartbreaking and I hate that kids are like this:

    “Marie: So you’re okay with her saying you’re the loser in the cafeteria who no one gets to know?

    Nick: Well, I mean, that is who I was in high school and middle school, soโ€ฆ

    **huggggs to you** For how the shitheads treated you

  27. Nicole says:

    I was that kid, too, who was sat in the corner and who no one got to know. Every word you write feels like it was directly from my brain. It feels good to finally be understood.

  28. Katie says:

    Nick – I, too, saw you on Bethenny’s show. I just had to find out more about you! Love the blog. Had to comment because you mentioned Passing Strange. I had the privilege of taking in the show during a trip to NY – and it was seriously amazing, touching, and thought provoking. I hold it very close and am so excited when I hear others loved it as well.

    The best of luck to you – I sincerely believe you will have wonderful things happen in your life. ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Emily says:

    Hey Nick,

    Im so happy I found your blog. I saw you on the street today and said hello and meant to give you my business card before you had to run, but I have a food blog http://www.eatingwiththestars.blogspot.com that I just started a few months ago and would love to get your thoughts and pick your brain about food places..maybe coffee sometime?

    You can contact me through the site by commenting or send an email to eatingwiththestars@gmail.com

    Hope to hear from you!

    Emily

  30. Kim says:

    I am so glad to see you blogging about the Red Iguana. Sad to say I only get Enchiladas Souza when I go. You need to come back and try more of their food. Love love love you on Bethenny.

  31. abbyreph says:

    Nick, you are such a genuine person on BEA and it’s SO fun watching you interact with their family! I hope they keep you around for more episodes, and that it leads to opportunites for you. You are great!

  32. Dawn says:

    Will there be a site entitle the Culinary Crawl as seen on Bethenny Ever After?

  33. Megan says:

    I.LOVE.YOU.
    Honestly, I thought you seemed like a sarcastic, strange nerd when I saw you on Bethenny’s show. (Which, by th way, isn’t that great this season) But, she loved you and I follow a bunch of obsessive blogs that review and comment on Bravo shows. I started reading your blog and you are so endearinly, adorably funny! You are obviously very intelligent and know a lot about awesome food in NYC. At any rate, I love how much fun you poke at yourself and I find myself wishing I could have one of these meals across the table from you whilst you jeer at yourself, lack of job, life, relationship, etc. Again, I. LOVE. YOU.

  34. carla says:

    canada is a bit behind – just getting bethenny ever after now – what i miss most about nyc, after having only just moved to toronto, is the F-O-O-D. i can remember every amazing mouthwatering meal i ever had, what restaurant it was at, and who was with me. apparently, many friends can’t remember meals, etc…so i’m guessing, food is, to me, a marker in life. so, i’m now following your blog – in a way, it makes me a bit sad. toronto is just…incomparable…and not in a good way. kudos on the new found fame – disregard labels of nerd – the high school cheerleaders and football captains bloomed way too early…the meek do rise. only the people worth your time, are the ones who will notice.

  35. Sally Courtois says:

    Please, please, oh please help me. Hopefully you can live vicariously through me as we wouldn’t be competition for each other…I MUST make it into the Page Program and NBC. How did you make it to the first interview?
    That is already a big achievement so you must have some insight for me. Thanks man! Keep up the good work!
    -Sally

  36. Lisa says:

    Love watching you on Bethanny’s show….Love it if you did food tours ๐Ÿ™‚ in NYC…Let me know if you do

  37. sanantoniofoodie says:

    Nick~ you’re amazing! We’ve been following you on Bethenny Ever After and would love to see more! Your blog on her website is excellent. Are you on Facebook? Love all your NYC foodie tips…..Take care! ๐Ÿ™‚ ~Amanda

  38. Mj says:

    Love u on Bethanny. Love this blog! Keep writing! This will be my newest favorite thing to do! I haven’t subscribed to a blog in 7 years! Thank you, Nick!!!

    Sincerely, mj

  39. DebbieR says:

    Hi Nick: Great “Food Time Blog”. I’m looking forward to reading more of your writing. Just a piece of advice don’t over think everything and everyone. Some things are just what they are. Relax and enjoy your life!!
    Debbie in Kansas.

  40. nathania says:

    I am loving you on Bethenny Ever After. I hope you are on there alot. You truly are special and so is she and the two of you are really funny together.

  41. Just read your debut blog on Bethenny and saw the show as usual last night. Excellent angle! I shared it with my bloggers and can’t wait for the next post! (And this blog looks pretty darn good too.) I would REALLY love to feature you on The Blog Entourage sometime!
    I’m going to NYC for the first time ever in a few weeks. I love to blog about food and travel, so I HAVE to figure out where to eat! I’m trying to pin down some must-see restaurants/food markets/street food, and I just have no idea where to start. Could you suggest any websites that really break it down by cuisine and cost? Or you could just take me on a food crawl yourself.;)

  42. Tina says:

    Nick~ You’re awesome! I remember seeing you last year on BGM and knew Bethenny made a mistake but knew you would be back. You’re so interesting and I love it when you’re on the show. You will go far in life! Keep up all the great work! You’re an excellent writer!!!! I’m starving now after reading your blogs and looking at that amazing food!

  43. Jeni says:

    Nick,

    After last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After, and falling in love w/you the first moment you were on camera, well it’s just sealed the deal for me. Your skill with a pen is mightier than any swordsmanship I’ve ever seen in my 34 years on earth. I swooned, I teared up, I find you endearing, full of love, spirit, life and most importantly in today’s age, manners, charm and respect. Keep up the good work. I’m a die-hard fan of this blog I just stumbled upon and of you. Connecting with others is going to be a gift that is always yours if you keep reaching out. Friends are out there and I can tell that you’d be an excellent one. Take care, Nick.

    Love,
    Jeni

  44. Laurie says:

    Nick — go to CafePress.com, create your own T-shirt and start selling it. All it needs is that great doodle of you (your avatar) and “@feitelogram”. Link to it from your blog. I will be the first to buy one.

    • Mj says:

      I want one too! Just let usknow hoiw much! Great idea, Laurie! we can advertise Nick’s blog AND Nick!

  45. Ann says:

    Nick,
    You are fantastic! And fascinating. So glad that through Bethenny the world will get to know you – I have a feeling your world is going to be turned upside down. Enjoy the ride! Can’t wait to read your next blog.
    Cheers,
    Ann

  46. Ariella says:

    Hi! I’m from Montreal and a big foodie ๐Ÿ™‚ Both our cities have an immense quality of food to offer! Together, it would be magical… and then the heavens answered

    http://www.mileendbrooklyn.com/

    The Mile End is a very “trendy” up and coming district in Montreal and the old Jewish Ghetto. A Montrealer moved to Brooklyn to bring our food down to the big apple. I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts. I’m trying to go down this summer and I am very excited to try it out.
    I know you don’t eat read meat, but if there are any exceptions… Smoked Meat.

  47. Laura says:

    Hi Nick,

    Like so many others I discovered you through BGM and BEA and was immediately struck by your intelligence, wit, charm and general attitude to life. Loved hearing your opinions on the show, but your blog is on another level. You write in a similar way to how I speak (on a good day, perhaps!) but I can never transfer the same life into my writing. So inspiring! I only wish I could get your take on the restaurants here in London. Will keenly follow your blog from now on. Incidentally, based on the posts above and my own thoughts, it looks as though there’s no shortage of interest from girls! xx

  48. M says:

    Hey Nick,

    I’m just another socially awkward groupie who feels compelled to reply to your wonderful blog. I guess itโ€™s because I was (still kind of am) very much like you through out my entire life, and I played the role of the outcast in high school too. Iโ€™ve used the same things you have to help me get out into the world. Therapy, writing, educating myself. The next thing you know, little by little, you become more comfortable with who you are and although you might just always be shy, youโ€™ll be able to improvise, and read people and deal with whatever life throws at you. Itโ€™s always great when you see someone like yourself get credit for being the awesome person that you are. My best friend and I watched Bethany Getting Married and we liked you immediately. We so hoped they would bring you back and turned into school girls screaming when we saw you back on Bethany Ever After. Maybe youโ€™ll have your own show some day! A groupie can dream canโ€™t she? Anyway, youโ€™re cool, that is all.

  49. Ann says:

    Nick
    I love watching you on Bethenny Ever After…
    Just Be yourself !!

  50. Vanessa says:

    Hey, Nick!

    I have been watching BEA for a while now and was pleasantly surprised to see you on the show. My mother used to clean for your grandmother and your mother as well. I used to go with her all the time. It was a while ago, so you might not remember. Anyway, when i saw you on the show i immediately recognized you! I loved the blog Bethany read on the show. It made me want to go back to NYC just for the food. Keep up the great work and I hope all is well with you and your family.

  51. Vanessa says:

    Hey, Nick!

    I have been watching BEA for a while now and was pleasantly surprised to see you on the show. My mother used to clean for your family years ago and I used to go with her sometimes. I recognized you instantly!

    The blog you wrote for Bethany was great. It made me want to go back to NYC just for the food. Keep up the awesome work and I hope all is well with you and your family.

  52. Whitney says:

    Usually…I do not always take time out to comment on sites and such (even when I adore them)…and if I DO take the time to make a comment… I usually take the time to compose a “clever” (or so I think) comment and/or statement. But for now, I’m tired and have enjoyed a rainy day in the south reading your blog entries…I just wanted to stop by and tell you that you have MAJOR skills, kid. Your thought process is raw and artistic… Your writing… (for a lack of better, and intelligent, terms) is flipping amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚ I look more and more forward to becoming a Faithful Feitel Follower! Rock on and Write on, Nick. -Whitney (Atlanta, GA)

  53. Meg says:

    I have to say after reading your entire blog from the first post to the most recently posted, I am hooked! You have such a great way of pulling in your readers. I love food as much as I love air. It is true. I think about food all day and night. So it it truly refreshing to see someone else who lives in Manhattan who enjoys the same things. Keep up the great work and I look forward to reading more of your stuff, Nick!

  54. Badriah says:

    Hey ya Nick, how goes it? I hope you are well. Even though we’ve never met, I can already tell we would get together splendidly. I love food, everything about it. It’s a geeky passion to some, but I don’t care & take it very seriously:) I miss the east coast as now I’m living on the west side. I miss the food! One thing about living here, my cooking skills improved. Question – can you please recommend a good food/ie book. Broad, I know…or maybe what you’re reading now. I love to read, especially re;food/food history. You reminded me of myself when talking to bethenny about Cantonese food:) Be well my friend. All the best, b’ ps. i really enjoy your blog, keep it up! ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. Meg says:

    I am a big believer in this quote, “Being in the right place at the right time to say the right thing to the right person just ONCE! can make all the difference”… I think your run in with Bethenny was fate. You have real talent that needed to be found. I enjoy reading your blog and hope it leads you to writing scripts for films. You have a great eye for detail that really makes readers like myself envision what you are describing. That is hard to do but you make it look easy! Best of luck to you and your future ๐Ÿ™‚

    p.s. I did a write up to throw a Bethenny Frankel party at home. Any pointers about Bethenny I may have missed? I would love input. Take a look…

    Hello there. My friend saw you on tv and said you sound just like my ex boyfriend. I told her, “your wrong, he seems much more intelligent.” I am a fellow double I ( introverted improver) and I dabble in the culinary arts. Just find it wonderful that your getting recognition. I think I may be developing a bit of an online crush, how cute.

  57. pattyabr says:

    You are great and your writing is fabulous. Keep up the awesome job of being yourself and being at the right place at the right time.

  59. Mary-Jane says:

    Just caught you on BEA here in Australia. What a treat, loved you in BGM! Found your blog, found your twitter, if I ever indeed make it to NY will follow all your tips.

  60. design98 says:

    Your writing is unmistakeably fresh. I like your clear, concise, and eloquent descriptions. The right place and right time can, and will, open many doors and I look forward to reading about the “welcomes” you receive.

  61. Diane says:

    Nick

    I don’t write comments on blogs. But, tonight I watched Bethenny’s show, and as she read your food blog, I am sure that there where so many of us out in tv land, who felt the same intensity of being in awe, and thinking “wow, can this guy capture the visual!” So, I went to her blog to reread what she just read on the air, I have the tv on hold and will have to finish watching her show after writing to you, I have yet to post on her blog.

    As previously stated, you can really, REALLY capture the visual in your writing. I’m not sure how I got to your blog, but I’m happy I made it, I will now be popping in from time to to time to see how you are doing.

    In your writings, you are humble with the “fame” that has come upon you and your uncertainty in dealing with it, you show great humility Nick, not a bad thing in this world and these times.

    I feel like I want to let you know, that I believe, when you write about your lack of self-assuredness, it cuts deep into most us who are reading about you. Knowing that at some point in our lives, no matter how long ago, or how insignificant it may seem now, that we have all have felt that same faltering uncertainty in trying to understand our own being.

    Benjamin Franklin stated, “to be humble to superiors is duty, to equals is courteous, to inferiors is nobelness.”

    Nick, be of a noble manner, with greatness of soul… change if you may, but always be humble.

  62. Hey, I’m going to be in NYC May 16-19. Any chance in hell I could buy you lunch and get a quick interview for my site The Blog Entourage?
    -Christina

  63. Tina says:

    Nick~

    Okay I’m writing to you because I saw your blog on Bravotv.com. I wanted to give you some advice, so whether you like it or no you’re getting it. I don’t know how to email you so if you can delete this comment on your site you can. I know what I may say is harsh, but it’s the truth and it’s only to help you, I only have the best of intentions and I want to see you succeed because you are very gifted and deserve the best. So please do not be offended.

    It breaks my heart that you feel this way and that you dont feel worthy of anything! You need to get more confidence and believe in yourself. The reason why you’re not dating is because no girl wants a man with no confidence and to be followed.

    As yourself, why do girls or even people in general buy dogs? Let me guess, you were thinking the following: they make a great FRIEND, they are cute, cuddlely, loyal, and will always be there when no one else is around. Okay here it is, girls don’t date dogs, you want like a wolf or a lion or something. Basically you’re sticking yourself in the friend category when you meet a girl because like you said you are like puppy following them around.They don’t view you as the bo-hunk stud muffin walking around, the dominate lion meandering around picking and choosing his prey (not that you’d like eat a person or anything, just bare with); they view you as the cute puppy that yes is loyal, loves them dearly, BUT only she only calls them up when no one else is around or just to hang out. Trying to date a woman when you’re already in the friend category is EXTREMELY difficult. Woman are attracted to confidence!

    If you show more confidence you will get a girl in no time. So walk into a place like a bar, act like a lion, as if you are VIP and the most important guest and that everyone has cater to you, I know it sounds dramatic, but I know you won’t take it to the egotisical way that’s annoying and standoff-ish. Have shoulders straight back, look UP, not down (you should always walk with your shoulders back and ALWAYS look up when you walk, people will respect your more and not walk all over you!) Lions are the most respected animal because of their power and dominace, they walk with the confidence that NOTHING and I mean NOTHING will get their way. BE THAT LION! I’m sure you’ve seen a real lion at some point in your life, and when you saw that lion, you respected that animal, you saw the confidence, you feel his presence, you could feel his power, and knew that he was in control.Do you think a lion would be the most respected animal if they slouched and was insecure and let themselves get trompled on by the gazelle they are trying to catch? NO! BE THE LION! At the bar be a little flirty with woman, but almost act as if you have more important things to do than talk to them, be a LITTLE mean but not like TOO mean not like standoff-ish and rude, it’s a very fine line between being flirty mean to catch a girl vs mean like a jerk. Ask Bethenny to help you practice doing this, I know she will understand and get what I’m saying and she’d be perfect to test it out. Becuase you do need to practice it, you almost have to act as if you are gracing them with your prescence and it’s an honor to them that they get to talk to you, I dont’ mean this in the man is always dominant and woman are submissive, because we are equal, I say the EXACT same thing when its a girl looking to date. You have to remember, you still need to carry the conversation and keep them interested so you have to make sure you keep them there so like I said you can’t be too mean! Dont do the corny pick up lines, a simple hi how are you doing is fine. Use this stardom to your advantage!! The work will be done girls will come up to you all you have to do is say a few words every now and then. But you HAVE HAVE HAVE HAVE TO BE CONFIDENT IN YOURSELF. Don’t buy girls a million drinks, and dont buy them one if you feel like it’s going to go nowhere, maybe depending on how it goes, have them buy YOU the drink. Some girls will take advantage of you buying drinks and take all of your money, make them buy their own darn drink! One drink is fine and then NO MORE! and DO NOT EVER EVER EVER EVER buy her entire group of friends a round either!!! She’s not interested in you and wants to get drinks for free! BE A LION!!

    You just have to be more confident about yourself and know that you are worthy of a relationship. Stand in front of your mirror every morning and say how you look hot and that you’re worthy.Because you are! You’re a great person, who is extremely talented!!! Look at how many people LOVE you from Bethenny’s show! You are a rockstar, you just don’t believe it which is sad because you have SO much potential.If you start doing mirror thing eventually you will actually start believing (which you should anyways) and you will notice a HUGE difference in your own self esteem and you’re going notice people respecting you more and woman being interested.But you have to believe it when you say it!

    Never follow a woman like a puppy, trust me it’s the most annoying thing ever. You go from the great friend, to the annoying person they try to avoid and ditch you. Like I said before, woman don’t date dogs. They want a powerful confident strong man.

    Of course none of this is going to change overnight, but start practicing, when you fall, get up and start doing it over again. I’ve struggled with self-esteem for years and finally one day I was sick of it and realized, I am pretty, I am worthy of a good relationship, I am worthy of being respected and not a doormat. I started doing this and started feeling so much better about myself and people started respecting me more and guys noticed me. Just try it for one week and you will see the difference. I know you wouldn’t anyway, but don’t take the being standoff-ish and acting as if you are the most important guest to the degree where it’s just cocky and annoying, just a little bit ya know. Practice it!! Don’t go up and completely insult a girl, but like a half insult, where it’s like friendly flirting. You have to practice this first with someone before you just go out there and start doing this because like I have said a million times, there is a fine line. PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE, Practice with Bethenny, she’d be the perfect person. And I know it sounds corny but everyday stand in front of the mirror and say how you’re hot! Walk straight up and LOOK AHEAD! RELEASE YOU’RE INNER LION! I KNOW YOU CAN AND I KNOW YOU WILL BE REALLY SUCCESSFUL!

    I know it sounds like I have a think for lions, but it’s the only good comparison I could think of. Like I said before, I think you’re extremely talented and have a lot of potential, you will be successful, ya know projecting the confidence will benefit you not only in relationships but in your career and everything else. TRUST ME. Just give my advice a shot, try it out for a week, if it doesn’t work it doesn’t work, what do you have to lose right?

    Hey Nick, If you ever come to Florida and want a foodie buddy, I’m all yours. Many diverse cultures here and different restaurants to enjoy. Nothing compares to NY as a former NYer myself but it would be good to see another perspective. Would give you something new to blog about…just a thought. Good luck with everything.

  65. klisted says:

    Dear Nick. I am a total fan. I saw you on Bethenny, and I was impressed from the start. I am starting a blog, and I would like feedback. It is only starting. I am a member of webgrrls.
    You are a true genius, and any feedback would be great.
    I want to make a great blog and promote great people and things.

  66. I have seen you on Bethenny ever after show and admire your passion for food…I felt an immediate bond with you because I too am a foodie. I LOVE NY & love the plethora of restaurant options that are offered in that wonderful city. I miss it sooo much! I hope to move back there SOON! Please check out my website as I’m sure you’ll find it interesting. Looking to relocate back in the “big Apple” ๐Ÿ™‚ so, if Bethenny is looking for another lackey;-) don’t hesitate to pass her my information. Thank you ~ Take care

    Hi Nick,
    Saw you on the Bethenny series. You know your food! If I was living in New York I would take you out for coffee to talk food! You are a Cool Guy!
    Take Care – April

  69. Lisa says:

    You make me wish I lived in NY so I could eat my way through the city…LOL. Best of luck to you man, you’re on your way!

  70. Cindy says:

    Hi Nick,

    I hope this is not weird. Well, it really is. But I saw you on Bethenny and loved every minute of your appearance!! Ok, that’s as weird as it gets…no? Really though, I love you culinary interests and the enlightenment you offer! Ok, last weird thing, my boyfriend and I will be in NYC the weekend of June 10-13 and would love to do a culinary crawl with you. Show us the world, show us NYC–in terms of food that is ๐Ÿ™‚ This may not even come to fruition, but now at least you know the impact you have made upon people like me!

    Best wishes,
    a true foodie, Cindy ๐Ÿ™‚

    love love love your blog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  72. vonny g says:

    When I first saw you on Bethenny I thought you were super intense…..incredibly smart and deep !!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I figured food is just one thing you’re passionate about… i love how you write and describe your thoughts…i come on here and read your blog every morning

    This would be your cartoon face, the boy in this picture on the movie Coraline:

    โค

  73. Nick, man, I’ve been reading your blog for the last hour. It’s only quarter to seven in the morning and I’ll be damned if I don’t want a slice of thin crust pizza and some home cut fries.

    Hello Nick, i’m your fan. you do make us hungry with the wonderful descriptions of your food adventures and pictures. Question for you. dont know if you’ll have time to answer. Do you know of any good seafood place, even a great fish and chips place?
    If you ever come out with a book, i’ll be buying it for sure. Your writing is wonderul. keep it up!

    • feitelogram says:

      check out a salt and battery for fish and chips, lots of different places for spectrums of price for seafood, le bernadin for expensive, don’t know for cheap, not my specialty.

      • salma says:

        looking for cheap, for some reason cheap taste better, the fancier the ingredients the more the price goes up.i’ll definitely check out A Salt and Battery, hilarious name! Thanks Nick!

  75. Anita says:

    I don’t know if you’ll even read this. You don’t know me but i just felt that i should email to tell you how well you write. The way you write is quite engaging and exotic to how a traditional blog is done. Mind you, i only stumbled upon your blog because i was ‘googling’ you after watching bethenny frankel show, called bethenny ever after. I have since become a regular reader of your blog. I really liked you in the show but at the same time, it saddened me to see how little confidence you had and how shy and awkward you were. In that one scene you had your head down while shaking bethenny husband hand. I just felt, no one should have to feel that way, everyone in this world should be confident and happy in their own skin. You shouldn’t feel that you are beneath them, to have to shake their hand with your head down. A teacher once told me, that a handshake is very important when you first meet someone, as it tells them what type of a person you are. I’m sure you’ve already heard that before. I just wanted to email you, to tell you to be more confident in yourself!! From the show and your blog, it is evident that you a great person, and so humble and you have a lot going for you. I can see you sometimes put yourself down, and you shouldn’t feel that way. Someone special will come your way soon enough, and appreciate everything you have to offer. I just wanted to say that to boost your confidence. I know, this is probably really odd, and this isn’t something i do but i just felt that i had to say this. Keep up the good work =)

  76. Nick,
    You are fine exactly the way you are. It’s a little elitist that people are commenting and giving advice on how you can improve your self-esteem. Clearly, viewers don’t receive an all encompassing picture of your whole self off-screen. Anyway, know that there are some people out there that believe you are GREAT, interesting, and real–just the way you are.
    Blessings,
    Rachel

    PS I love your writing

  77. kc says:

    I was under the impression that our beloved Nick has grown into his own skin by now. You people underestimate him. His blogs and tweets represent a pretty outgoing sophisticated nyork intellect and reality shows are all staged

  78. retailaddicts says:

    Nick- I’m a huge fan of your blog and the posts you do for Bethenny. I’m coming to NYC for Labor Day weekend and moving there permanently next Summer. Would love a chance to meet/get to know you.

  79. Dee says:

    I am planning a trip mid-month 8/16-22 and looking for some help. There are so many places and I wonโ€™t have time to do them all so I would like to know if you would be will to give me a list of the must try food locations. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    • feitelogram says:

      Nope. I only answer very specific questions. That one: way too broad. Sorry.

    • saher says:

      I would say..he has a food blog you should read that! I was just in NYC, its so so so huge, that you can find food on every corner, every price range you could want. We had street food everyday for dinner, because it was so delicious and gave you enough energy to walk around and be lost on the subway!

  80. Wendy Bonham says:

    Hi, Nicholas. I saw you on Bethenny’s show and instantly felt a connection: you are a wonderfuly articulate, savvy, and creative soul. I’m hoping you have an email list for your blog as, being new to even reading blogs, am not sure of finding your awesome posts. After growing up on Long Island and the UES but moving to other parts of the country, I dearly miss parts of life in THE city. We don’t have much of a foodie culture where I live and very few food trucks. While I love to cook and innovate, it’s mostly a creative outlet. Keep up this wonderful work.

  81. Elena says:

    Your blog is amazingly honest, candid, and comforting. Thanks for being such an inspiring person, you are truly one of a kind!

  82. Erika says:

    Nick,

    Saw you on BAE! Loved you on the show. I wish you could take me and my boyfriend on a food crawl sometime, you seem to know EVERY awesome place in NY. You should get your on show! Good luck!!
    -Erika from Cape Cod, Ma

  83. john capotorto says:

    Hey nick,

    I was forced to watch the ever after show because of my fiancee and I’m glad I did because you were the only person i knew in the preview of the upcoming season. I dont know if you remember me but i went to poly and graduated in 06. Just wanted to say congrats and keep it up. Email me back anytime man.

  84. Amanda says:

    I really enjoy your blog. I live in Texas and I would love to go to New York this year to visit some of the places you talk about. Or maybe even take a tour with you around the city and visit your favorite places. You know… if you ever have a free day to take tourists around ๐Ÿ™‚

  85. Sar says:

    I just read your blog for 2 hours and I think it’s the best thing I’ve read in a year since i finished tte game of thrones series. What are your go-to food spots in the city? I heart menus.

  86. Dana says:

    Nick,
    I’m a huge fan and wish you great success and happiness.
    I’m writing about a specific restaurant that you might know about.
    The name is Vietnam on Doyers St. Awesome food in a little tucked away corner of Chinatown. I thought I recently read that they closed. Please tell me this is not true!! If it is can you recommend another Vietnamese restaurant that you like?
    Thank you and best regards,
    Dana

  87. Lauren Swords (Lauren Miller before I was married) says:

    Hey. I’m writing here because I can’t find an email.

    I was in Poly from 5th-12th grade. I graduated in 2000. That place was pretty much the main factor in why I am so messed up today, have no self esteem and am in/have been in/will forever be in therapy. One of my friends- who is also emotionally scarred- remembers you and I think saw you on tv and told me to read your blog about Poly. She said you nailed it. And you did.

    I don’t remember you. But this is because I spent my days for 12 years being self absorbed- and by that I mean crying EVERYDAY in the girls bathroom next to Ms Corkhill’s class room because I was treated so horribly.

    I think I would have turned out differently in an environment that didn’t constantly abuse me and make me feel worthless. I don’t know if hearing you say the stuff you said in chapel would have made me feel hopeful, but I’m glad you said it. My younger self and my adult self thank you.

    • feitelogram says:

      A note on this:

      Whatever your experience was is valid and true and sometimes I do look back with regret on those times or clarity in that it just sucked.
      But people have had worse experience than a demeaning high school/middle school. And while it necessary to look on ourselves and others with sympathy, it’s also on us to not be victims in our own lives. To take ownership of those times, realize our patterns and notice our growth.
      While I still have animus towards many factors of my time there, I am who I am. I have some agency in my life. It’s up to me now whether to beat myself up, or to choose to treat myself with humor and understanding for the person I grew to away from that.

  93. asher rooney says:

    you need to get on junket for local eats in major cities and blog it (but get bethenny to think its her idea so bravo pays for it). i would love for you to critique the atlanta local food as most of it sucks around here. we need to find the hole in the wall gems. that means you get hooked on some tour and review food with ms. frankel…

  94. DeAnna Machado says:

    I love reading this blog. You appear to be driven and interesting in your efforts. Thanks for the blog and good luck in your search for the perfect food and contented life

  95. Caitlin says:

    Hi Nick! I saw you on Bethenny’s show and thought you were great. I read your blog and love it!! I would LOVE to work with/for Bethenny too. Do you have any recommendations on the best way to get in touch with her “people”? Thank you! Best of luck with everything! xoxo, Caitlin

    • feitelogram says:

      I am sorry, I don’t answer requests like this. Feel free to check out Ms. Frankel’s site and see what you can find.

  96. pattyJ says:

    Im a fellow foodie and always lookin for someone to chat fav spots with. NY is so rich in great spots, Im dying to swap suggestions with ya.

  97. Jennifer says:

    Hi Nick! I was wondering if I could ask you about a 10 question interview for my blog. I am very passionate about it and I want to get it more out there and post more often. It’s mainly about healthy living and I wanted to ask you about food and managing your weight after losing it. I also reached out to Jackie, Bethenny’s assistant and I am hoping to hear back from her about a 10 question interview. I would so greatly appreciate it. I can email or mail you the questions, because I am sure meeting you is out of the question and you can email or mail them back whenever you get a chance. I know this is a long shot, but I had to try, let me know! Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    -Jennifer
