Spring NYC Random Bites

Ah, NYC in the spring, there's nothin' like it (well, maybe except Paris in the spring).

This spring break took us for a few days to my favorite city for theatre, midtown sites, Central Park and always great eats.

I was invited to try out the new Pixie machine by Nespresso, as if I needed any more addictions.



My pal Ted Allen from CHOPPED hosted the fabulous event in the Soho location. Great time and my favorite coffee.



I always remember to buy a cup of chowder from my favorite soup kiosk down on Prince St.



We took in 2 Broadway shows: The Book of Mormon (BEST!) and The House of Blue Leaves.


Dined at The Modern and had the most delicious tuna tartare & an asparagus salad w/ dried raspberries! Did I mention delicious?



We leaped tall buildings in single bounds.........



Today, Henry's lunchbox had the good fortune of having leftover homemade duck rillettes w/ mustard and cornichons for lunch from Salumeria Biellese on 8th Ave. I bought sausages, salamis and other goodies from this old time Italian butcher.





Seen on the street in Soho.
(Obviously, I entered thru the front door).

how fun that you got to schmooze with Ted Allen. I have had that Nespresso coffee and I think it's pretty good. Salumeria Biellese makes the best salumi don't they? You went to some great shows there Stacey. keep on keepin' on.

Thank you for suggesting the bar room at The Modern, we loved it before the show. I had the begnets for dessert, OH MY! Our trip was great except for the weather!
Thank you Stacey for all your suggestions, it made our trip even better.
