New York in Food

WARNING: big giant food closeups ahead. If you are feeling hungry, good luck with that. If you are feeling nauseous, you might want to come back tomorrow.

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.)

  1. I have to say, the last couple of days have been a visual feast! Van Gogh, Toblerone, B&W's…good grief! I find myself drooling just a little bit. Fun, fun, fun. I think I might be inclined to pick our next city of residence based solely on the food. πŸ™‚


  2. Ooooh!! You went to Perilla!!! Hope it was great! Until this season of TopChef I always thought Harold D. was leagues above any of the other winners. Loving the travel posts – almost like being there. πŸ™‚


  3. Everything looks delicious, except I agree with you about the Hot Dog. I was wondering if you'd make it to Tom's Diner! Never knew about SV's song and btw,thanks for getting it stuck inside my head!I was born in NY. I have always loved it dearly! I think its wired into my DNA and often I feel it calling me back. I agree with Rachael, thanks to your postings, you've made me feel like I visited too!Love your playlist on here too!
