I hope everyone had a nice Easter!
We had friends in town from PA and had a great weekend doing our favorite things with them – walking and eating!
Friday night highlights: Grand Army / Barcade / Brooklyn Star
My drink at Brooklyn Star was packed with exciting stuff, including aperol and papaya puree. Plus we had spicy duck wings which are 10/10.
Saturday highlights: Sweetleaf / Ice & Vice / Chelsea Market / John’s on Bleecker / we walked across the Williamsburg Bridge, on the water through Battery Park, then over to Brookfield Place and through the Oculus building
Ice and Vice did not fail to impress the out-of-towners. I got a scoop of Shade (smoked dark chocolate with caramelized white chocolate ganache) in a sesame cone.
John’s was actually a pizza place that they introduced to me! Our pie, topped with green peppers, was delicious, and I plan on going back.
Sunday highlights: Colonie
All four of us ordered the duck hash at Colonie, it’s that good.
Adam and I had some fun on our lonesome too. Like talking a (sweltering!!) walk in Brooklyn and getting coffee and baklava.
And I made us a very Easter-y salad for dinner. Greens + fresh cilantro + spring onion / tossed with homemade creamy lemon poppy seed dressing / topped with fresh peas / and medium-boiled eggs.
Have a nice week!
