I was there for work but I managed to enjoy the following;
  1. Cacio e Pepe soft scrambled eggs at Maialino
    762f203d 4526 4eb8 a8dd bf510e764686
    I love a savory breakfast and this was the ultimate. A bowl full of soft scrambled eggs, pecorino & pepper served with view of Gramercy Park. Oh la la
  2. Everything at El Rey
    43746967 2dc1 4330 8d2a e56191519e5d
    This was my favorite meal of the trip! Can't choose a favorite dish although the sardine tostada, green mole and cauliflower with egg are all stand outs. Just look how happy I am! Also, nicest staff of anyplace I've ever been.
  3. Pizza at Emily's
    E2514a7c 1f7d 41bb b417 1cf4c638007e
    This place was just around the corner from where is stayed and on my last night, I finally tried it. Great crust and unusual topping combos made me wish I had come sooner. The Colony pizza was a stand out; spicy & slightly sweet.
  4. Pork tacos at Los Tacos #1

    It's hard to believe the Chelsea Market has good food but it does & this is proof. The tortillas are made to order and it gave CA taquerias a run for their money. (I used the Taco Grease filter on this photo, hence the blur.)
  5. Chard with Poached Egg & Bottarga at Roman's
    04360ed6 eaba 492b 8ae2 4002ce598c71
    Roman's, along with Diner, are two of my favorite places in NYC. In my sliding doors life, I live around the corner and go every Sunday and most birthdays. They always have a 'bitter' drink special, which is feel is just for me.
  6. Roasted Carrot & Avocado Salad with Crusty Seeds
    6c4f46fe 3d04 47de adb9 aaf171127cdd
    This was insanely delicious and I just saw the recipe in Food 52's new Genius Recipe cookbook. I can't wait to make it at home! 👍
