New York City
Since I’ve studied to be a chef I’m a HUGE foodie and we have about 6 or 7 different restaurants we’ll be hitting. We’re staying in Murray Hill this time for something different. Last time we stayed at the Hudson
A little breakdown of some of my NY hot spots –
The best soup I’ve ever had is at Dishes not far from Times Square
Best crème caramel was at Blue Ribbon Café in the village.
Amazing scallops can be had at the Black Duck, in Murray Hill which is right where we’re staying this time. Man…this is making me hungry!
As you can tell, I’m getting pumped! We’ll have to do a few martinis at the W still. A little bit of a tradition with us, even if they are totally overpriced. I go for the “atmosphere” of the place, but I think Robert likes it because all of the waitresses are very cute and young in teeny tiny low cut outfits with tall black boots. I was impressed with the bar at the Hudson
To really do NY right you need to see a show so we’re going to try to catch Wicked.
Since the art scene is one of the best in the world we’ll be taking in several new exhibits, Goya’s Last Works at the Frick and then the Guggenheim which we tried to get into before but was closed for some renovations. I just know that after visiting these galleries I will be so inspired to create more. Of course after visiting such works of art I feel very inadequate as an artist, but it helps with composition and colors.
A while back we saw one of the best exhibits I’ve ever seen called “Ashes & Snow” at pier 54 in a bunch of shipping containers called the Nomadic Museum Quebec Japan San Francisco
Anyhow…may write more from NYC.
