Netflix's new original series, NYC cats, the new Urbanspoon

TV | Just in time for school to start, there's about to be another addictive Netflix Original Series release. NARCOS is anticipated by critics to be the next Breaking Bad, but even more gripping. The gangster drama series follows two DEA agents on a mission to bring down the infamous 1980s Colombian cocaine lord Pablo Escobar. The story alternates between the points of view of Escobar and DEA agent Steve Murphy, played by Boyd Holbrook (known for Gone Girl, Run All Night and Milk). The 10-episode first season of Narcos will be available for streaming on Aug. 28.

INSTAGRAM | Photographer/blogger Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York project has taken the Internet by storm, giving people around the world earnest glimpses into each other's lives. But who's to say that human lives are the only ones worth peeking into? Over the past six months, FELINES OF NEW YORK (@felinesofny) has documented the lives of cats in the Big Apple, from fancy felines in top-floor flats to shifty alley cats hunting for scraps. But it's not just another silly cat account — the quirky captions that personify each cat are what makes it worth a follow.

APP | It seems as if there's a new restaurant, coffee shop or brewery popping up in town every week, making it a bit overwhelming to settle on a dinner spot. ZOMATO, the new and improved version of Urbanspoon, is here to help you quickly locate the best restaurants and save some time. The app detects your location and displays all of the eateries nearby, complete with menus, reviews, price ranges, directions and hours of operation. Search for what's nearby, or use a cuisine filter like "coffee and tea" or "Italian" to see a list of every restaurant in town that's serving up what you're looking for. Bon appétit! ♦
