There’s very little that I love more than a good meal in life (other than binge watching shows on Netflix, of course). So when I was in Paris, I was excited to eat all of the chausson aux pommes, cheese, meats, and croissants that my heart desired.
I was especially excited when Matt surprised me with lunch Le Relais de l’Entrecôte on our third day in Paris, after we had spent the past few hours building up an appetite walking through the Musée d’Orsay and admiring some of the best works of the Impressionist movement.
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.
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 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!
