I’m afraid to jinx myself. It has only been once and heaven knows I have been disappointed so many times.
I resorted to ordering from Benares, which delivers to my Manhattan office, and taking that home for dinner via bus and then subway. Yeah, I know.
Could it be that there is a new, good Indian restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn?
Dare I hope?
I dare. Because the meal I had delivered from Mahal Kita via Seamless was DELICIOUS. Even better? It was 20% off because they’re new in town.
I live walking distance from this legendary Brooklyn steakhouse and have for more than two years. But I have yet to dine there.
I love a good steak. I love classic New York experiences.
Beyond that, shouldn’t this pic of Peter Luger’s bacon be compelling enough?
Once I tried. I was with my visiting mother. It was a Sunday afternoon during what I thought might be a quieter time at Peter Luger, after lunch but before dinner. No reservation.
Denied. The place was packed.
Peter Luger is cash only too. Unless one has the PL credit card. I do not sadly. At any given time, I have approximately $17.45 in my wallet.
That said, I’m determined to dine at PL. Who will join me?
October 16, 2011
It’s midnight and I am riding the L train home to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The new day is actually my birthday, the first I’ll celebrate after my move back to NYC from Washington, DC. Everything is fresh and new.
Well, the subway isn’t, but New York is home again and I am so happy.
I have just had dinner at Kittichai with two friends. Thai food is not my favorite but I am still in my enthusiastic-about-every-damn-thing phase post-move. I am also committed to saying YES to things, like event invitations and making new friends and accepting dates from just about anyone who asks.
Before my parents most recent visit, I went to the nail salon with a picture in my phone.
I took a photo of a painting by my late paternal grandmother to the nail salon and told my favorite technician Joey “anything inspired by this will be wonderful.” She far exceeded my expectations and when my father saw her work, he seemed touched.
Ignore my cuticles. Joey does the best she can with what I give her!
What should I wear with them?
I almost bought these Steve Madden boots before spotting the Bussolas. The Steve Madden pair was a little cheaper, but far less comfortable. Plus I preferred the extra buckles.
What will you be buying for fall?
I love cheese. Wouldn’t it be fun to know more about it? I think so.
In my opinion, the funkier the cheese, the better. I’m not sure there’s a cheese I wouldn’t try.
Here in the New York metropolitan area, there are cheese making classes. But I think I just want to eat it!
These are a few of the options I’m considering:
Update: I did it! Thanks to Mollytopia, I took a great class at Murray’s.
