Reasons I Loved NY This Week-Vol. 2

-Foie Gras with Cinco Cebollas (5 types of onions!) at Casa Mono. Could have ordered 3 just for myself!
-Gramercy Park in full bloom. Peering in from outside the gate, watching the rich people frolic and daydreaming about someone mistakenly letting me in when they leave. Unfortunately for me, Gramercy Park is one of only two private parks in NYC, and you must live around its perimeter (a.k.a. be rich!) to get a key...Hello Uma Thurman!
-Sunshine! 'Twas an April Miracle. OFF TO CENTRAL PARK!
-Getting a beer at the happy hour price even though it was just after happy hour ended. Love Marshall Stack. New favorite bar!
-Brioche Donut Holes with Nutella Filling from Dessert Truck Works during my post-Passover rampage. Mmmmm best doughnut EVER (except for Doughnut Plant which is also amazing!)


  1. Doughnut Plant!! I have to go before I leave..... maybe tomorrow?
    Thumbs up to Marshall Stack (and the cute, nice bartender)

  2. woohoo! maybe we can go for a run and then eat donuts at the end of it? balance ourselves out? let's talk tomorrow!

  3. Just catching up on your posts. I (heart) your I (heart) NYC posts... though they make me crave a good dose of "home". Miss you!

  4. Aww, thanks Justine! I heart putting those posts together...They definitely force me to pay attention and appreciate things more. Miss having you here!!

  5. I have an idea, inspired by this post of course. You should hijack the above referenced Dessert Truck and drive it upstate. To have my beautiful Sam show up at my door, accompanied by donuts (we only have the kind made for "dunkin" up here, blah)... what a dream!

    Hopefully going to get to the city soon!

  6. AHHH!!! I love that idea! works on so many levels: provides snazzy transportation to the somewhat carless city girl, unlimited snacks during road trip, and I get to see YOU!
