After a long winter filled with snow and freezing winds that made me want to curl up in bed and never leave my apartment, I’m really loving spring. Although the pollen makes me sneeze like crazy, I always look forward to all of the blooming flowers and the sunny days to come. If the sun is out, you’ll probably find me going for a run, hanging out on my porch, or finding new restaurants and/or rooftop bars.
So Smorgasburg is one of my favorite things to do on a sunny Saturday in Brooklyn when I want to indulge in some of the best new and innovative food items New York City has to offer–a few of these include the ramen burger, boozy popsicles, and spaghetti doughnuts.
Nine times out of ten, I will order something savory for breakfast/brunch. Whether it be eggs benedict, cheese grits with shrimp, or a breakfast burger, I love it all.
So when I order pancakes, it’s a big deal and I only do so when I know that they’re going to be fantastic. Which is exactly what happened at Clinton Street Baking Co, which has some of the best pancakes I’ve ever tasted in New York!
There’s obviously nothing I love better than a good brunch, especially if it’s enjoyed in the cutest little restaurant smack dab in the middle of the Meatpacking District.
Happy Friday friends! If I wasn’t sick and chugging tea as if my life depended on it, I would definitely be cheering with a glass of champagne over the fact that it’s finally almost the weekend!! But for now, I’ll stick with my tea and DayQuil and dream about the Ample Hills ice cream I ate this past weekend.
There’s honestly nothing better on a winter day than a hot bowl of ramen. The combination of noodles, crunchy vegetables, and a thick broth is exactly what you need when you can’t feel your toes and want to gear up for the cold with a full belly. Which was exactly what I needed the other weekend when Matt and I were walking around the Lower East Side and it just randomly started snowing!!
If you had describe your ultimate Sunday, what would it be? Depending on how I’m feeling when I wake up, I can either be highly productive or I end up spending the morning in bed and only venture out for food. I’m personally a fan of the casual Sunday look, which for me usually entails Lululemon leggings, messy hair, and only a little bit of makeup.
But my favorite kind of Sundays are the days when you go out and explore whatever city you’re in, rain or shine, even if you’re just checking out a new coffee shop or hankering for a bagel that you saw posted on Instagram the other day.
