First meal on Tuesday: Brunch
|First food stop - That's Koralle in the picture - the best NY friend a couple of gals could have|
Success! I had a veggie omelet, hold the potatoes, sans toast, cup of green tea.. Delish!
However, after walking 40 miles taking it all in, I had decided that wine was a must with dinner..
And then after getting all gussied up we decided a stop for a pre-dinner cocktail was in order..
|Very happy with my decision to sit & drink...|
Our delightful tour guide, who I got the feeling was famous in the foodie circle, made us reservations at the famous "The Darby" with Executive Chef Alexandra Guarnaschelli From the Food Networks "Alex's Day Off", Iron Chef and many appearances on numerous talk shows.
So how does one continue on a diet at one of the worlds best restaurants with a world's best chef?
She doesn't. That's how. Do you think I am an idiot? Nope not me.. here's some pics of my most exquisite meal ever..
|My Mom, note the wine & bread...|
|Appie - Wild Mushroom Ravioli (we shared), truffle cream sauce.. OMG too delish|
|Grilled wild salmon with sunchokes..Amazing|
|Grilled Octopus salad with cucumber, dill & red wine.. SO GOOD|
So here I sit at home, back on the diet and after 32 pee's I am back on track :)
