Someone recently asked me about the places I ate when I was in New York City back in May. I thought I had blogged about it, but I only barely mentioned it here. I guess I was overwhelmed with experience from that trip, and just didn't know where to start. But, I did keep a list of our activities on that trip, including meals, and I think I can track down the restaurants on the interweb. So here goes...
Lunch: Soup dumplings and some noodle dish at Joe's Shanghai in Chinatown (blogged about here)
Snack: Fruit popsicles from a vendor near Strawberry Fields in Central Park
Pre-dinner drinks: (well, coffee for me) Saints & Sinners Pub in Queen's
Dinner: A plethora of tasty Thai dishes from Sripraphai in Queen's
Breakfast: Breakfast sandwiches and coffee from some deli/bakery in Chelsea - didn't write down the name, but it was tasty
Pre-lunch dessert: Cupcakes! from Magnolia Bakery in the West Village
Lunch: Sandwiches from another deli I forgot to write down the name of. Bad me. (We ate them on the Staten Island Ferry, which offers free views of the Statue of Liberty!)
Afternoon coffee: Starbucks in Trump Tower
Late Dinner: Prosciutto and manicotti in Little Italy (our restaurant selection was done by walking slowly down the street and eating at the restaurant with the most persuasive little Italian woman telling us all about her wonderful food) - the restaurant we chose was called Benito 2, and the sales pitch was dead on.
Dessert: Fantastic cannolis and capuccino at a place that I wrote down as "Cannoli King" but the internet seems to think was actually Caffé Palermo. Either way, it was tasty.
Breakfast: I don't remember the name for what I got, but it was unique and had a weird name and involved eggs and a flatbread of some sort. I also didn't write down the name of the restaurant, but it was in the East Village. Man, I really should have blogged about this sooner...
