The NYC saga continues with more wining & dining, great friends, shopping, walking, and heaps of fun! My good friend Courtney Pool also came up for a visit, all the way from Patagonia, AZ. You might like to check out her trip post here. It was so great to see her again (the last time was a few years ago when I visited The Tree of Life).
I honestly don't know where to begin because I have soooo many great pics, but I'll give a quick overview. I enjoyed another dinner at Pure Food & Wine with Philip Mc Cluskey, Courtney Pool, Dhrumil Purohit, and Ben Tseitlin.
Enjoying our girlie berry drinks!
Courtney ordered the Tamales - don't they look awesome?!
I enjoyed a White Light Tini - lemongrass, ginger, green tea, sake
I had the S&M Salad (Named after Sarma & Matthew when they started the restaurant and the name stuck). This is the best salad ever: loads of greens, avocado, dulse, and rosemary quackers (which are sold in One Lucky Duck).
On the house: Mini Mushroom Patty Burger - on ezekiel bread, with kraut, and other toppings.
Philip and I
Pure's Kitchen - Can you see a few of them giving a wave?! I also met their cool dessert chef, Patricia, who happened to recognize me! Go figure! It was cool to meet her - I'm totally envious of her job!
We had a stop at One Lucky Duck (just around the corner from Pure), after dinner to pick up some ice cream for dessert. As you can see, Court can't contain herself - yes it's that good!
Goodies galore: From left to right: Mallomars, moonpies, chocolate ganache torte, & linzer tarte
Cookies, Key Lime Pies, Chocolate Banana Cream Pies (I've had the banana ones before - they're uber good!)
Lemon Bars & Tiramisu
OK...just one more pichy of the yumminess...
We indulged in most of OLD's ice cream flavours, back at Dhru's.
Of course I had to get a moon pie! I enjoyed half of it over top my ice cream. Yum!
That's all for now... a trip to Quintessence, cake making, and more good times still to come!
