This Monday started earnestly enough: oatmeal and blueberries, steamed veg and roasted potatoes. Nuts.
But then I had a client dinner at Imperial No. 9. And when Pacific halibut and duck fat potatoes and chocolate cake with Fruity Pebbles are all over the menu, it’s easy to forget the rules for awhile.
In fact, dinner tonight was par for the course as of late. Last week, I had brioche french toast at Café Cluny and chili lobster at Marc Forgione. A late-night dinner of gnudi, tagliatelle and fried artichokes at Alimentari & Vineria. And a piggish Minetta Tavern dinner that included Manhattans, wine, pan-fried trout, frites and chocolate tart. And as if that weren’t enough, I grabbed a pint of ice cream on the way home and proceeded to polish it off in front of a cheesy movie (One Day. What can I say, I'm a sucker for Anne Hatheway).
