David’s dessert at Perilla — cheesecake in the background, strawberry with meringue in the foreground
Pastrami on rye from the Carnegie Deli
Best pizza of my whole entire life from Grimaldi’s in Brooklyn. I watched them make it and took notes.
Gray’s Papaya — the orange drink was good but I didn’t get the big fuss over their hot dogs. Mediocre.
My breakfast at Cafe Lalo: steamed eggs with mushrooms and fresh herbs.
David’s breakfast from Cafe Lalo: I think there were about eight eggs in there. We counted.
I thought this was a nice touch: Cafe Lalo gives you a Toblerone with your GIANT coffee.
Sorry about the glare here. The classic Black and White cookie.
Reuben from Katz’s Deli.
Who is that angry-looking woman standing by the Seinfeld restaurant? Oh, it’s me. We did eat here…and I learned that not only do they have the Seinfeld claim to fame, they also are the restaurant that inspired the song “Tom’s Diner.” Remember the one where Suzanne Vega says “doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo…” about a million times?
(by the way, you are SO WELCOME for putting that song in your head for the rest of the day)
This is down the block from Tom’s Restaurant. We did not eat here but naturally I had to take a picture of the pub owned by my people.
(sidenote: LOOK AT THOSE POOR WOMEN! Women of New York, I have to hand it to you. You manage to look cute and trendy in the harshest of conditions.)
