scenes from the weekend...NYC

My weekend centered squarely around food. Things started with a lovely dinner at Red Cat for Restaurant Week on Friday night.

Saturday afternoon, we kicked off a marathon erranding session with craft beers and steamed pork buns at Ma Peche.

Then, after surviving the 7th circle of hell (aka Bloomingdales's on a Saturday afternoon during the 1 day only home sale...), we made our way to Grand Central Oyster Bar for some mollusks and a much needed martini.

Saturday night, we wandered to Gramercy Tavern, a neighborhood favorite for a low key meal in the tavern room. I started with some more oysters (don't judge) and promptly put away my camera to enjoy the rest of the meal.


Hope your weekend was just as delicious!

Food photos are the greatest! I especially love the first one! I can't wait to go back to NYC one day... I haven't been in 6 years!

I've never tried oysters! I'm always curious and want to, but I get scared... haha! In my mind they taste like slimy olives... which I would love. But, in reality I think they taste very different!
