Ben and I recently jetted up to New York to visit a cluster of annual art fairs. We stayed at the Roosevelt which was clean and a great location. I'd stay there again! Art Fairs we visited:
My favorite from all the shows was Dave Eggers' collection of original drawings.
We did happen to stumble upon a doppleganger statue of me! This piece is by Stephan Balkenhol and is appropriately titled "Woman with Red Jacket".
FUN AT MUJI
Definitely worth a visit. We had a blast purchasing notebooks and stamping them at the stamp bar they had.
We make an effort to try new restaurants and food experiences whenever we visit NYC. Here's a list of our food fun this trip.
Great ramen noodles! They forgot our soft boiled egg which I didn't realize until we were half way done but it was still yummy. Started with the Miso Butter Mazemen and added chicken and mushrooms.
pistachio ice cream with pistachio brittle.
they had only been open a few weeks. The service was on the slow side but worth the wait! We had the Salvation burger and the dog.
we are slowly trying to try all of David Chang's restaurants. This was one of them. It was dim sum style but we ended up splitting items off their regular menu: Fried Chicken Sandwich, Brioche French Toast and egg bun.
Fast food but good - no, really! We had a cheeseburger and the 'shroom burger. And of course a caramel milkshake, you know, to pay homage to the name.
favorite brunch place in NY. French. Amazing!!! We had the Cr'q Forestier and waffle sandwich.
Went for brunch - split the grilled cheese and Piedmontese Cheeseburger (because you can't have too many cheeseburgers!)
This place has fancy oatmeal. Although yummy, I think we should have added something crunchy to our selections. We split Banana cream pie and bacon pumpkin.
After four art fairs and tremendous amounts of walking we were pretty tuckered out at this point. Dinner time came around and Ben bravely scouted us dinner from around the corner from Uncle Paul's Pizza. It really hit the spot.
We had a chocolate donut covered in pretzel. Ohmygoditwassogood.
It was snowing that day but that didn't stop us from eating an ice cream sandwich. Thank goodness I was not dissuaded by the snow – it was so yummy!
