With the flowers blooming all across Central Park, taking an enjoyable walk home is a far better option than the subway. The sun was setting to create a beautiful golden light on the cherry blossoms, lilac gardens and midtown’s skyline. After all that walking, why not take the time for a quick snack. Local favorites of mine include breads from Sarabeth’s and Ciao Bella’s Green Tea gelato from the new foodie shop in town– Gastronomie 491, that is part cafe part gourmet market.

Happy Weekend! I’m heading Upstate for Easter, so be sure to check back soon for all the holiday menus! x

A Taste of Spring

February 21, 2011

It’s hard to believe it’s snowing out my office window right now, while Friday my roommate and I enjoyed an after work drink on our roof deck with unseasonably warm temperatures reaching into the upper 60’s. It put me in the mood to get out the fruit and make some flavored water as a little taste of spring.
