ok, so you must go to the caracas arepas bar on the lower east side in nyc. it's A-MAZ-ING! arepas are magically crafted south american treats; they're crispy, savory, spicy, and deeeelicious. they have a garlic, orange colored sauce on each table that you are going to want to smother your body in - i'm not kidding. it's a sensation!
we also ate at casa mono in gramercy park. this is the duck egg, bacon, and fingerling potatoes dish i slammed my face into.
omg, russ and daughters!!!!!! they don't toast the bagels, the lox is out of this world, and it's the real jewish deal. my mouth is watering just looking at the picture again. ugh. they also had caviar cream cheese which looked yummy.
butter lane cupcakes. just down the street from the arepas place. i got caramel popcorn and my gf got plain. they were tasty.
woah. i ate much, much more but i was a loser and didn't take crazy pictures of everything. i also really loved apizz, malatesta, donut plant (!!! i know, i mentioned it before, but hello, it deserves another mention), and la superior & cafe moto in brooklyn. yum.
