Eating My Way Through My Last 2 Weeks in NYC.


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.

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!
