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.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? I love eating and cooking so you might think that I’d have to think about that for a minute but, without a doubt, I’d pick Sugarfish’s “Trust Me” menu.
I’m a huge sushi fan and eat it at least once or twice a week, but the only other time I’ve had such fresh fish was when I was in Maui last year which is saying something considering that I was smack dab in the Flatiron district and not anywhere near the ocean. Plus Sugarfish offers a different sushi experience than I’ve ever experienced before by serving their sushi rice warm! Which you wouldn’t think would make a big difference but the warm rice made it seem as if the sushi was melting in your mouth.
I don’t like tacos… said no Juan ever!
Do y’all want to know how I found out about Nickel & Diner (and a lot of the other restaurants I’ve been to in New York City)? I literally googled “cool brunch spots in NYC” one day during my lunch break and hit the jackpot. I usually rely heavily on Instagram for foodie advice but I decided to take a chance on a random Refinery29 article I found, and we were not disappointed!
If you had seen how much bacon I ate this weekend (hint: too much), you would never know that I had been a semi-pescetarian for over 10 years. I still don’t eat much red meat nowadays, and prefer to stick with locally sourced meats, so I always enjoy finding yummy new vegetarian restaurants while in New York City. Which worked out well the other weekend for both my sister and I since she’s a pretty strict vegetarian.
After a little research, I picked out by CHLOE for our first meal together in the city and we were not disappointed by all of the hype!
There’s nothing that I love for breakfast more than a good bagel. Most mornings I stick with my usual smoothie, but if I’m in the city I like to indulge myself. Because although I’m not one to try and perpetuate stereotypes, New York City honestly has the BEST bagels and pizza in the world.
And one of my favorite spots in the city to grab a breakfast bagel that will fulfill all of my cravings is Black Seed Bagels in the Nolita area.
