Car Free Calories....
While in Car Free Nirvana, I was also in food nirvana as well. One of the hazards of walking in a great city like NY is that unlike a car you bump into great food along the way. Before the Greennwich Village Halloween Parade, my friend M and I walked around Soho for lunch at a charming place called "Wild Ginger" that serves up vegan pan-asian fusion cuisine (was I redundant there), the food was pretty good but the calming dining room was hard to beat. We started walking around to check out some places like the Moss and MOMA design stores and we kept stumbling on great places along the way. So in the course of window shopping I ended up eating the following:
Cupcake from Magnolia, solid but not spectacular. The hype on this place is killing it. Two words expectation Management.
Bleecker Street Pizza, according to the Food Network, the best Pizza in NYC. The crust is amazing. Very Very good crust and that practically makes the whole pizza.
Stop by Murray's cheese shop where I picked up some lavendar chocolate drops. Scharffenberger has landed.
Cookies and coffee at Peanut Butter Company, a restaurant that specializes in Peanut Butter food.
Then a fantastic stop for "dinner" more wine though at 12 chairs in the Village.
I thought walking was suppose to help you lose weight.....
