Hearty eating in New York

Most of my friends are much healthier eaters than I. My favorite meals in New York include dim sum brunch at Jing Fong, chicken fried chicken at the Cowgirl Hall of Fame, and brisket sandwiches at Katz’s Deli.

If I don’t want a salad, sometimes I’m on my own. Soo, I’ve decided to do a little solo exploration of some restaurants in New York this summer while I’m there. Here are some places I want to check out:

  1. Maialino
  2. Osteria Morini
  3. Eataly
  4. Fatty ‘Cue
  5. Pies n Thighs
  6. Char No. 4
  7. Minetta Tavern 
  8. BeerParc

Any suggestions?

Travel Playlist #2: Magic Week In NYC

It’s FINALLY that week in New York when the weather turns and heads upwards of sixty, and everyone pulls out their t-shirts and flip-flops and heads to the nearest park. Thank goodness! Unfortunately I’ll only be able to enjoy a week of this before I’m out of the country once more.

  1. tUnE-yArDs – Bizness
  2. The Strokes – The Modern Age
  3. Paul Simon – Gumboots
  4. Mos Def – Summertime
  5. Rilo Kiley – Breakin’ Up
  6. The Strokes – Under the Cover of Darkness
  7.  Shugo Tokumaru – Rum Hee
  8. Beirut – After the Curtain
  9.  Apollo Sunshine – Breeze
  10. Tommy Toussaint – Sloppy Sentimentalists
  11. Annuals – Complete or Completing

…and I think they’re best listened to in that order.
