Foodista Interviews Bravo's NYC Housewife, Alex McCord About the B'Klyn Culinary Scene


I had quite the eventful night tonight, being a part of the media crew at the annual BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis event, which takes place just a few days before the big U.S. Open tournament at Flushing Meadows.  Held at the W Hotel on 49th Street and Lexington, the event, currently in its 11th year, intermingles talent from the culinary world with the star-studded talent from the Tennis world.

Aside from the amazing tennis champions such as 2003 U.S. Open Men's Champion,  
Andy Roddick, 2009 U.S. Open Women's Champion, Kim Clijsters, Vera Zvonareva, Victoria Azarenka, Justin Gimelstob and more, there were other celebrities worth observing and chatting with.

One such T.V. personality includes Bravo's NYC Housewife, Alex McCord and her hubby, Simon Van Kempen, who are both known on the show for their love of parties, dressing up like nobody's business and just having a grand ol' time, as you can see from the above picture. 

I had the opportunity to sit down, one-on-one with Alex and steered our conversation to my favorite topic - food.  Since Alex and Simon reside in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, I picked Alex's brain about some of her favorite places to eat in the nabe.  She not only answered the question, she went above and beyond, offering up places she likes to frequent for date night, dinner with the kids and other fun occasions including her favorite dessert place.

Check out her video here and please chime in with your comments and thoughts.


A big thank you to Alex for participating in this video - it was a pleasure!
