Ms. Bear's Mini Guide to NYC Dining
Shake Shack, which is one of my favorite places! Their food is remarkable. Unfortunately, the calories are right on the menu, so there is that bit of a shock, which we got over quickly! We had cheeseburgers, fries and ice cream, washed down with Diet Coke! We were pretty full that night, so we had cheese, bread and salami from a little deli around the corner from my niece Mona's. We also had a nice bottle of imported beer to wash it down!
Central Park while walking Howie, Mona's dog -- he is so cute that he has been stopped and petted by Martha Stuart herself! For lunch, we went to Lenny's, a nice NY deli, and had sandwiches and salads. Funny story....my salad was super expensive because I didn't know they charged for each separate ingredient! They also charge for pop refills, just a good thing to know if you ever go there!
Boulud Sud. It was Restaurant Week, and there were lots of specials at the high-end restaurants. Imagine my surprise when my tuna appetizer was raw! We had a phenomenal dessert there too.
Sarabeth's. We had a lovely lunch of soup, salad and dessert. Then we went to the famous Zabars deli and stocked up on black and white cookies -- a NY tradition!
Shake Shack, Magnolia Bakery (cupcakes, cupcakes and more cupcakes!) and visit some of the great delis and street-side fruit stands that they have there. Most of all, enjoy the company you are with. Until next time.....
