NYC Weekend WIAW

My weekend in eats in New York City with my wonderful friends.

Peas and Crayons

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?

    I can’t begin to choose which of these looks the best! I thought the chocolate chip pancake cupcake had it until I saw the PB tasting and the brioche. What was the best PB flavor?

    Unbelievably, I have NEVER been to NYC. That needs to be remedied soon.

    Those cupcakes are so cute! You made a good choice 🙂 I’ve been to NYC once when I was small so I don’t even remember!

    Ahhh you hit some really good places. I adore Eataly and Peanut Butter & Co. AND Baked by Melissa. We have those for every office celebration – soooo good 🙂

    Arent Baked by Melissa’s addictive! I live in the city and we always bring them to work when its someone’s birthday. Today is my bosses birthday, 4 cupcakes have been consumed.. at least they are small? 🙂

    It all looks fantastic! Food in NYC is really the best. My favorite restaurant was The View on top of the Marriott Marquis, not sure what it would be as a vegan now though. Glad you had fun! 🙂

    I haven’t been to NYC since I was in middle school… when I thought a Sbarro’s pizza and a McDonald’s burger were fine dining options. I need to plan a trip just to eat 🙂

    So sad that I’m only a hop, skip & a jump away from NYC and don’t venture in more frequently. I’ll have to add it to my “to do” list! All your eats and drinks looked great!
