I’ve learned a few things about deciding to pick up your life and moving halfway around the world, but this is probably the most prevalent one: everyone who wants to catch up with you wants to eat with you.
My last week on the east coast was booked with old friends that wanted to catch up. . . and EAT. Here’s a delicious play-by-play of some of the delicious eats that I had during my last week in New York.
Ramenrittos from Press Tea in the West Village with my team members from work
Chocolate chip pancakes and Nutella milkshake from Tops Diner in Newark, NJ with my favorite sister (joke, I only have one)
Parmesan tortellini from Terra in Tribeca with my first boss ever and forever mentor
Chicken and Rice from the Halal Guys – 53rd & 3rd location with some co-workers
Fried chicken and waffles, chicken biscuit, mac and cheese, grits, and bourbon pecan pie from Pies and Thighs in the Lower East Side with my “little” from back in college
Omakase form Sushi Nakazawa in the West Village with my very good friend Victor
BBQ brisket, broccoli salad, and sweet potato pecan side from Mighty Quinn’s – downtown location at Hudson Eats
A smorgasburg of tapas from ABC Cocina (the charred octopus, arroz con pollo, and empanadas were my favorite!)
We also went to Dough afterwards and I definitely couldn’t fit anymore inside my stomach (let alone a doughnut), but how delicious did this spread look?
I still have many a things to eat next time I’m back in NYC, but I highly recommend all of the above!
