Fish Friday

February 4, 2011

In the middle of a snowstorm, my roommates and I, along with some friends from our building enjoyed a local meal at Kefi. Pictured below is the Pan Seared Striped Bass. Flashing back to another amazing fish dinner, check out a home cooked Wahoo evening in Aruba not too long ago.

I’ve just returned from a long weekend in Aruba to the cold, yet festive Manhattan. For four days I feasted on amazing local dishes that I can’t wait to share. With Christmas rapidly approaching, plus more shopping left, and traveling upstate, all I can post at the moment is a preview of the beautiful sunsets and fresh coconut, but be sure to check back soon. Happy Holidays! x
