As much as I hate waiting in line for the Empire State Building, I have to say, there's something to be said about the views from the top. It's breathtaking at night!!!
Oh wait...did I mention the gross amount of food we had while in New York?? Sadly, I really had no idea how great Jean Georges truly was because I never had the opportunity to dine at any of his restaurants. In an effort to remedy that situation, I made reservations for Jean Georges for lunch ($24 pre-fixe menu):
We had meals at other places such like Shopsin's, Katz's deli, Kitchen Club in Soho but none of those other places came close to touching the greatness of Jean Georges.
I have to admit that the Mac & Cheese pancakes from Shopsins (above) is really intriguing. I never would've thought of that combination but just hearing mac & cheese made everything else sound so good!
Katz's deli pastrami is ridiculously yummy. The omelette shown above probably contains enough calories to fuel my body through 5 triathlons...
My friend, Henry, was kind enough to take carrie & i to Kitchen Club. I had the bento.
After every meal, it is important to finish things off with dessert. We tracked down the Dessert Truck at St. Mark's. I had the goat cheese cake. One word: "yum".
