London after the rain always makes a pretty scene ❤️
Dispatch from Chelsea, Manhattan:
📸 (1-3) Squares (4) 23rd Street facade.
Since early September I have had an ongoing repeat client right around the corner from Lions & Tigers & Squares, bringing me to this subway station at least twice a month. I cannot stop coming to this pizza joint, I just can't. So I figured I should finally talk about it, even though we do not do a whole lot of pizza on these pages.
First of all, they do not sell slices, they sell squares. There is a good chance you will hear them have to explain that to a walk-in customer while you wait. Sold in a gut-busting giant rectangle cut into four "squares," bring a friend and share or come very hungry. In all the times I have tried, I have never finished the whole thing in one sitting. The closest I got was avoiding the crust on the last two slices, but then you kind of miss the point.
That crust is crispy and a little burnt and part of what makes the pizza from Detroit. The origins of this were cooking in industrial trays that were meant for other uses and had nothing to do with pizza, creating this unique shape and thickness. While the bottom and sides get crispy, the middle is still chewy and soft.
An always generous layer of toppings is laid on top, with a nice double puddle of rich sauce. Most patrons seem to take the meatless "Classic" which turns out to be very economical, but other pies available include pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, and a vodka sauce slice just in case you needed everything a little heavier.
📍 Lions & Tigers & Squares, 268 West 23rd Street, Chelsea, Manhattan.

Shout out to @sophiesodope
for the delicious food & the warm hospitality.
Truly love finding new spots to eat, especially when they’re 🇵🇷 owned establishments. “Chelsea’s newest Latin restaurant” delivers a diverse menu of Latin food and unique, exotic cocktails (ayye the sugar cane sticks in the sangria shots and the spicy rim on the grapefruit margarita glasses were #perfecttouches
👌🏽)My personal fav: the Colombian arepitas and the vegetarian empanadas with their sweet plantains inside (are you drooling yet☺️). Check out their IG page for info on their live DJ ‘Sunday Brunch Day Party’ that offers free sangria and mimosas to the ladies🙌🏽
Best of luck to you @sophiesodope
- success is no accident, you got this!

Quite literally obsessed with this wrap! While we’re rushing around the madness of Xmas and getting set for winter hibernation ALL AT ONCE, there is no time like right now to nourish ourselves with the most balancing foods. I designed this Temaki Roll with exactly that in mind. Cooked buckwheat and rice are there to help us feel more grounded and in tune with the seasonal weather change. The pickled carrots, probiotic sauerkraut, activated and herbed nut paste, nori seaweed and cucumber are there to help us digest our meal better and to provide more energy to ace this season! The miso tahini dip brings it all together as it nourishes and satisfies. Have you tried it yet?

On the blog today: truth + the best workouts + aggressive - link in bio. Happy Tuesday, friends! ✌🏽
