Good afternoon and happy Monday. Sorry it took me a while to get this post up today, but I’ve been out of the office a couple of days and had a lot of catching up to do. I was out of the office because I was staying in my pied a tierre — ha, that’s what I like to call my friend’s studio in Murray Hill — for the weekend. I had lots of fun eating experiences.
Because there are so many photos, I put together a little slide show. The places, in order I visited:
Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Prime Meats in Brooklyn
The Clover Club in Brooklyn
Eataly in the Flatiron district.
momofuku ssam bar in the East Village.
Mayahuel in the East Village.
Motorino in the East Village.
The Lambs Club in Midtown.
Sakagura in Midtown East.
Fun stuff. I highly recommend a visit to all. Here are the photos. Click on the conversation bubble to see the captions:
