Yeah, so, um, since our trip I've been busy. I got a new little gig. Please click on that pretty little link right there, as I get paid by the page view. I know, I'm shameless.
Quick rundown of what I was able to snack on in NYC:
- Blue Ribbon Sushi -- Pretty good but not amazing. Clever menu items and decent cocktails but doesn't hold a candle to Sebo.
- Bouchon Bakery -- Home away from home. Dependable and good and convenient since we were staying in the Time Warner Center. Diner #3 experienced his first pate whilst dining there, and my lobster BLT was more than worth the $19 price (a veritable bargain for NYC).
- Le Bernadin -- hopefully more to come on this one, but the short of it is that I wouldn't go back. The food was truly excellent, but the rest of the package was enough of a clusterfuck that I don't feel a need to eat there again.
- BarMasa -- Holy fuckballs. Amazing. Will be booking a table at Masa proper the next time I am in NYC (bonus: Diner #3 had first truffles there).
