This week has been packed! On top of classes, work, dissertation, and the school, I attended a conference 2 days this week and tried to spend as much time with my friend CS who was in town for a workshop.
So far all we had done was EAT! Monday night we went to Ollie’s and had (this was a first for me) some really good scallion pancakes. Tuesday night we went to Gauchas and had excellent meat (very highly recommended Argentinian restaurant, this was my second time there, and still very good).
On Friday we went to see Celia, the musical. It was awesome!!!!! We saw the Spanish version, but they do present it in English as well, if anyone is interested. The music was excellent, the woman who played Celia (Anissa Gathers) was superb, and the story was very compelling. While we waited for the show to start we bumped into a Cold Stone! Did you guys know there is one on 9th Ave between 50th and 51st streets? Well now you do! And after the show we went for dinner and drinks to French Roast. I had escargots which I hadn’t had in a while, and love; they were very good.
Saturday we had planned to go to Peter Luger Steakhouse for dinner. But of course the place was packed, no way to find a reservation for that night. So in our search for meat, we headed to Churrascaria Riodizio Tribeca and OMG you should had seen that meat! We had pork, lamb, different cuts of meat, chicken, and sausages. Also they have a salad bar, and the octopus and variety of shrimp and sea food, was excellent, as well as the heart of palms, yum! By the time we got to dessert I was too full to order one for myself, but that didn’t stop my sis, b.i.l., and CS. They had chocolate mousse, passion fruit mousse, and a coconut flan. All delicious (of course I tried them, remember the sweet tooth?).
All in all, a very satisfying week!
