NYC Instagram Weekend.


This was my past weekend in New York, as seen through Instagram (plus a few shots that didn't make it).

 Mr. Vedge's Restaurant Entrepreneurship class field trip (tours/Q&A/meals at Jean-Georges, Lavo, and Shake Shack) brought us to good 'ol NYC for a long weekend. Of course I went along.

I spent a lot of time on my own as I wasn't able to join the class, but we did sneak in a fun dinner with friends both old and new at Kajitsu (photo 1), house of vegan Shojin cuisine and had another dinner at Pure Food & Wine (Mint Sundae, check. Green Tea Tiramisu, we had to) and met up for drinks with friends after.

I checked in at Piperlime in Soho (photo 2), refreshed with mango chia water and a root veg/mushroom bowl at Hu Kitchen (3) and juice/smoothies at Treehaus Midtown (4) and Organic Avenue (6). I finally had a rainy day lunch at Cinnamon Snail (5) where I witnessed just how devoted their lunch fans are (they came, in droves, in wind and rain) and devoured a basil pesto tofu baguette that was worth getting soaked for. On another day, I had falafel at Taim (7) (which lived up to its fame) with a berry/basil smoothie after attempting to order something at newish the Butcher's Daughter (8), where I found out that they wouldn't serve food (dinner) until 6 and stopped making smoothies at 4. I hope they change this, I arrived confused and left disappointed. What a great weekend, otherwise!

Legends of the Fall

If I could have one thing this fall, it'd be more time to write. In lieu of that, there are a few things with which to garnish a busy, busy season. Fall essentials:

1. Clearly, I didn't think this through, by Anna Goldfarb. I first met Shmitten Kitten's Anna back in my early blogging days in Philly and truth: she has one of the strongest blogging voices out there. Cancel your date, pop open some vino, and fall into this 
2. Emmy's granola & macaroons frequently make my shopping list, so when I finally spooned into her chocolate sauce, there was no going back. I have 1,001 plans for this fudgy condiment.
3.  Kure Polish is an eco-friendly non-toxic polish in slick colors
4. Tree of India's Ayurvedic essential oils help balance my fidgety Vata tendencies
5. Pumpkin Spice Truffles from Gnosis are my Halloween treat of choice: Pumpkin seed creme, warming spices, maca and ginseng all encased in raw chocolate
6. I'm due for a new vegan leather jacket and this number in "Brick" belongs in my closet
