Yes. I haven't updated in like a month. One would think that i was starved! Hardly! I have gained 20 pounds from delicious food. I guess it really DOES go downhill in your mid twenties... where has my metabolism gone?!
Anyways, I have been quite busy and have not had the chance to really go out to eat at any new places. Last night was like my "coming back out" night!
It was girls night with mom!
We first went to see Romeo and Juliet at NYC Ballet at Lincoln Center. It was quite amazing... The girl was insanely flexible.
Then.... drum roll!!! What I was REALLY excited for was dinner at The Mark Restaurant by Jean Georges!!! It is located inside the Mark Hotel. Which is so fun and cool looking!
First thing: If you get a table for two, the tables are gonna suck. You have to strattle them. I dunno, its hard to explain. I was just quite uncomfortable! The food saved it tho! Everything we ordered was fantasmic!
Market Beets with Yogurt, Field Mache, Lemon Oil
Steamed Shrimp Salad, Avocado and Enoki, Champagne Dressing (UN-Real!)
Fresh Fettuccine, Meyer Lemon, Parmesan, Black Pepper (UN-Real! This was like my favorite, but get it as an appetizer portion and share because too much of this can be overwhelming. It's very creamy!)
Grilled Lamb Chops, Roasted Baby Vegetables, Black Olive Crumbs (Delish as well, and the meat was so, so, so tender!)
Line Caught Halibut, Radish Salad with Lavender, White Sesame (So Japanese! I love JG! The fish and radish were very simple and then you get the kick with the sesame sauce!)
And of course dessert!
We got a sampler of Banana Shortcake, Chocolate Mousse Thing, and Sour Cherry Craime Fraiche Cheese Cake.... I made a really inappropriate noise after eating the cheesecake. and the banana shortcake. It was that good. The chocolate thing was good too, but nothing that would make me moan.
And the cheese platter which we definitely could not finish. So FULL!
And this is how random I am. I became friendly with the couple that was sitting next to our table, and at the end of their meal, when they were eating the Grand Marnier Souffle and I expressed a creepy interest, they gave me a bite!
Twas a lovely evening with my moms!
