NYC

Everytime I go to New York, I have big plans for myself. I have a budget. Usually a food budget and a shoe budget. I have reservations and plans. I know where I’m eating. I know who I’m seeing. I’m not generally someone who makes plans, as I am flakey and selfish with my time. But in New York, plans are necessary, otherwise I’ll never get it all done.

I went to New York this past week to see my sister and finally get this fancy new website up. I didn’t make any plans. It was great. I walked around the city and took pictures with my new camera that I’m still trying to figure out how to use. I had brunch at 10 Downing and met Shuna Fish Lydon, an outrageously talented pastry chef, who came out and personally described each of her amazing desserts. From there I went to the Ace Hotel and had cocktails and “Thrice Cooked Chips” from the Breslin. Those things were amazing. While really they were nothing more than huge french fries, they were beyond perfection. Precisely cut into large rectangles, fried to golden brown deliciousness, and served with cumin aioli, they were worth every ridiculous penny. So much that we ordered another round. The Ace Hotel’s motto is “The friendliest Hotel in New York”, and I’m gonna have to agree. We mentioned to our super cute cocktail waitress that we’d like to see a room, and a guy from the front desk came over and showed us three different rooms!

The next day I went to Dorie Greenspan’s pop up cookie store, Cookie Bar, and was lucky enough to meet Dorie in person. Pardon me for being such a geek, but I was truly nervous to meet her, and surprised at how up close and personal the little store was. She had about 8 different kinds of cookies laid out on silver platters, and was personally stuffing them into boxes from behind her little tea cart. I bought most of them. It was cold in New York. Cookies warm the soul.

The rest of my time in the city was spent working on this fab new site, and doing what I do best…being generally lazy, making french onion soup and doing something that my sisters and I have come to affectionatley call SFEVing; Speculating For Entertainment Value. Speculating about what, you say? Most things…

    Hilary,
    I hear that Dorie’s cookie store will soon be more than just temporary, so maybe you’ll get to check it out one day too! So delicious.
    Kamran, Of course I love your site! You are on your way to doing BIG things.
