My weekend in eats in New York City with my wonderful friends.
Friday afternoon: samples here and there from Union Square market
Friday lunch: Eataly (more photos here)
Cheers to the hottest day in NYC in years! 100+! We stood and dined at La Piazza.
Martini Asti Spumanti.
Crostini: tuna, fava bean, smoked salmon, arugala. So perfect.
Mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes.
Incredibly fresh bread.
Dessert: Gelato (I ordered stracciatella & banana)
Mid afternoon snack: Baked By Melissa cupcakes
Peanut butter cup, red velvet, chocolate chip pancake (mine!)
Friday Dinner: Miriam in Brooklyn (too dark for more photos)
We split 4 meze items: hummus, labane cheese, quinoa salad, and burekas
I drank watermelon sangria and enjoyed the Mediterranean salad: veggies & avocado wrapped in grilled eggplant and topped with feta
Saturday breakfast: Dunkin Donuts (coffee & egg white wrap)
Saturday lunch: PB & CO (more here)
We split the sampler platter (all 8 varieties of PB with veggies, fruit, and crackers) & two homemade cookies
Saturday shopping snacks:
Samples at Vosges (no, I didn’t eat any bacon chocolate)
Food truck Fro-Yo
Saturday dinner: Paprika (again too dark for photos)
Delicious cocktails made my fabulous hostess as we were getting ready.
We shared risotto, asparagus & marscapone ball appetizers and I ordered an incredible
pasta: tagliolini with porcini mushrooms, kale, and truffle oil – to die for.
After dinner drinks: Crocodile Lounge
You get a ticket for a free pizza every time you order a drink. Seriously.
Sunday brunch: Farm on Adderly (Brooklyn)
Mushroom and onion omelet, mixed greens, brioche
We (I) also had to try the chocolate brioche – grilled with about 1/2 cup of butter.
I could eat all day and all night in New York City. What’s your #1 favorite restaurant in NYC?
