The week in food

As I type, I am digesting cake truffles from Momofuku Milk Bar(two pineapple upside down cake and one chocolate chip). Needless to say, it’s been a naughty week.

It included obscene meals at Acme and L’Artusi. Cocktails at Employees Only and Hotel Delmano.

And the capper was going to Smorgasburg in Williamsburg, with the lovely views of our most amazing city.

Where, from the gorgeous bruschetta options at Sunday Gravy, we chose walnut chicken with a beautiful pesto.

It went well with the Bamberg sandwich from Schnitz...

parsley and panko breadcrumbed chicken with pickled cucumbers and daikon and spicy dijon mustard on a pretzel roll. Delicious.
Brown Butter Salty and Oat Chocolate Chunk cookies from The Good Batch…
Just didn’t stand a chance against the hibiscus and café au lait doughnuts from Dough.

Heaven. But I have some serious repenting to do this week.


  1. Looks amazing! If you have to be bad at least it was good:) What was that amazing looking drink?

  2. The drink was a Manhattan at Employees Only. (The other, with the rose buds, is a Mata Hari. Divine.) I agree: if you're going to be bad, be very, very bad!

  3. Agreed! My new favorite drink is a French 75 made with cognac rather than gin. I had one at the Ritz in Paris and have been hooked ever since. You can definitely be bad with that champagne cocktail- they go down quite easily. Buvette in the West Village makes a good one as well!
