What a wonderful weekend we just had! I worked (super long, busy days) Friday, Saturday, Sunday but Adam was off in the evenings too so we made sure to aggressively enjoy ourselves. Tons of NYC restaurants are doing safely distanced / non-exploitative outdoor dining now and we took full advantage.
Homemade frozen pain-killers, enjoyed on a long walk with Webster. Coconut milk, orange juice, frozen pineapple, nutmeg, and dark rum.
S’mores ice cream sandwich. This was very graham/cinnamon forward.
A birthday cake stuffed cookie from Gooey on the inside.
Drinks and dessert at Freeman’s Alley. Bananas foster with a spicy margarita and a jammy vodka cocktail with elderflower and raspberry.
Dinner at Wayla, aka our new favorite Thai spot. They have Thai iced tea with oat milk.
We had a couple good cocktails, including this Hanabi Milk Punch which was my favorite drink I’ve ever been served. Naked Turtle Rum, Blackwell Rum, strawberry, star anise, cloves, genmaicha, and Singha soda.
Lump crab fried rice
Tua Pad Prik Khing – wok-fried long beans, crispy tofu, and galangal chili paste.
Dinner at Glasserie. I had a hibiscus margarita. Also a Hemingway daiquiri that knocked my socks off.
We shared a bunch of plates, each one better than the last. Olives and pickled peppers // labne, honey, and griddled bread.
Roasted lamb with potato and grilled scallions.
Tzatziki with trout roe and potato husks. <– my favorite dish of the weekend
