Search & Win

I had a great weekend in NYC this weekend! I went up on Saturday, and I got home late last night. Saturday, late afternoon, I hit up Soho for some good shopping, then dinner at Ristorante Scalini Fedeli in Tribeca. The food was good, but I think it was over priced for what it was. After dinner we met up with Brittany's friend Rachel & her boyfriend at a Cuban restaurant/bar in Chelsea:

I walked 8-10 miles on Sunday (and as you can imagine, I'm still sore!). Up the river, through West Village (managed to pass on a cupcake from Magnolia's bakery), through the meat packing district (for brunch at Pastis- AMAZING), to Fifth Avenue to meet up with Brittany for shopping. We shopped for 4 hours, hitting up all of the big department stores. While we were talking around, we saw the Smurf's movie being filmed:

After shopping, Kevin took me to Central Park (not for long though, as I was sore & exhausted & hungry). Then we headed over to a fantastic Indian food restaurant for dinner.

Central Park!

Unfortunately, I woke up at the crack of dawn on Monday, so the walking started at 7:45 a.m. ...Down the river, through Battery Park City, through the Financial District/Wall Street, to Chinatown, through Little Italy, and winding up in Soho at the big Dean & Deluca.

We had a ridiculously early lunch at Sunshine 27 in Chinatown. It's a dim sun restaurant, and it was INCREDIBLE. The restaurant has lots of large tables, where they seat you based on space at the table. So there were 2 of us, and we were seated at a table that had 5 other people already there. The waiter gives you a ticket, and servers come around to your table with carts where you point and choose what you want to eat (and they stamp your ticket). It was the best meal that I had in NYC.

It was great to get home and see my babies (Jeepers & Dexter), but I can't wait to go back! I miss that city already!
