I’m away on holidays in New York this week, so in lieu of a post, I give you some holiday photos. I’ll get around to the tips and reviews when I’m back home next week.
Bread with tomato, nori and mojama at the amazing La Vara in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.
The Chelsea Hotel. I’ve had Chelsea Hotel No.2 by Leonard Cohen stuck in my head ever since.
New York’s best lobster roll from the Red Hook Lobster Pound
Magnolias in Central Park
My local cheese shop in Williamsburg, which describes Reblochon as ‘remember when coke used to get you high instead of making you need to s***. Pair with Pinot.’. This was the least scandalous cheese description they had.
A couple got engaged in front of me in Central Park as I unsuccessfully tried to photograph the fountain beside them. Shortly after this he started running around waving his arms in the air screaming ‘she said yes’.
Obscure documentary reference alert.
Rice at my local grocery store.
Williamsburg Bridge from the East River Ferry.
