NYC: {What We Ate}

As on any vacation, eating was a big focus on our trip to NYC. We didn't even come close to eating everything I wanted to try (no Shake Shack! no Eataly!), so we'll just have to get back soon for more of the good stuff. Here's a few of the highlights, which I've been dreaming about for the last month...

We ended up getting bagels from Bagel Express on 25th and 3rd
three of the four mornings we were there. Yeah, I guess we liked them...
This one was my favorite. Salt bagel with cream cheese and lox.
Always best with a mimosa, of course.

A late night feast at 2nd Avenue Deli.

We had dinner Saturday night at Casa Mono, and it was pretty delicious!
The razor clams and pumpkin and goad cheese croquettes were my favorites.

Breakfast at Union Square Farmer's Market

A feast for dinner at Madison Square Eats.
It was a low key gourmet version of Taste of Chicago.
There were too many amazing sounding things to try!

And the best meal of the trip? It was obviously our lunch at Jean-Georges.
Joe's foie gras appetizer and my flounder and spaghetti squash entree were the standouts, but everything was amazing.
What a fun and memorable meal!

So what do you think? I feel like we made a good effort giving the limited amount of time we had. This 'taste' of the city has me hungry for more :)  Next time, NYC, we'll be back to eat even more!
