Cafe Fiorello

I love it as Cafe Fiorello.  I love the location, sitting at the bar, the caesar and fish i eat , the memories I am making and the Pot of Chocolate they serve for dessert.

Hatsuhana

I meant to say momofuko but it came out hatsuhana, so we met Sam and a friend there. Delightful. We ate upstairs. The decor was lovely, the place felt roomy, the stafff was attentive, and the kids guided me into a box of sushi. The food was lovely but perhaps not worth the price, but […]

The Bronx

Another neighborhood, another borough and I wasn’t happy. It was as bad as I had expected from the stories I recall from my childhood. Fort Apache the Bronx. Well, not that bad. We went to the movies and the theatre was really bad. Unclean, torn seats, the screen showed evidence that things had been tossed […]

Stew Leonards

Since arriving in New York I have asked people all over “where is a great market?” No one seems to know. “use fairway” they say ” why not zabars or citrellena” . Ill tell you why, because they aren’t great markets. Now Stew Leonards isnt in the city. They have 6 locations and I can […]

Museum Hack

I haven’t been to a museum since i discovered the movie theatre, but today I may go…hmmmmm… or not.. but if I ever want to really experience another side of the museum, i think i will try museum hack.

A walk in my neighborhood

A cool spring day, not really but close. The freezing temperatures have risen enough to make a leisurely stroll once again a pleasure. Honestly, I was reluctant to leave the house but oh sao glad i did. We walked down to the river- peeking into the grand houses on Sutton Square, watching a large along […]

Imperial Palace II

Chinese!  Flushing! oh my!!!  After stumbling into flushing a few weeks ago and seeing what looks like mini asia we come to find that Flushing is THE place to go for Chinese.  SO with two recommendations in hand from a real Chinese gentleman we settle on Imperial Palace II.  A good choice.  Salt fish fried […]

Figaro

At the Metropolitan Opera House was long.  A modern ( 1930’s) setting didn’t capture me in the least.  I do keep trying Opera but I think Figaro wont get another chance.

Italian near Lincoln Center

Yum.  Il Violino, a few blocks north of lincoln center was the perfect spot to grab a great bite before the Opera.  A small ceasar with capers(?) and not quite enough dressing was saved by a small plate of cheese and a plate of anchovies.  The lamb was good but the Mashed Potatoes maybe a […]

Jessica Lang

Again at the Joyce last night.  For Jessica Lange who always amazes me.  The use of props, the beautiful music, the flowing dance… let me drown in it.  With Backhausdance it was a wonderful evening.
