We finally got to meet some fellow bloggers in person!
We met Giff and his supermodel wife, Lisl, from The Constables' Larder, a great food blog, for dinner in Manhattan this week.
I met Giff thru foodbuzz.com and since we are both fans of each other's blogs, we decided to meet for dinner in NYC.
I chose Dell'Anima, which means "of the soul" in Italian.
It is a small restaurant in the West Village on Jane St. Very hip, great wine list and wonderful apertivo.
Lighting too low for photos and noise level so loud, I felt like I was at a U2 concert at Madison Square Garden, my ears are still ringing.
We had crostini with 5 toppings for the table. A tonnato (tuna), ceci (chic pea), an avocado something, a fresh ricotta and a wonderful caponata with crusty bread.
We chatted about the food blogs we like/love and don't love. We are definitely geeks, because we talked about food lighting and photography. I thought my husband would run out, but he enjoyed the conversation. Current events/politics were the hot topic of the night.
I am hosting a foodbuzz dinner this Saturday night for 25 foodbuzz NYC metro area featured publishers in New York City, and I am looking forward to meeting all of them! I hope they can keep up with the Huxtables (I mean the Constables!!!).
Thanks Giff and Lisl, we hope we didn't scare you off with our bathroom humor!
