Soho/W Village food crawl (w/ cookie focus and pre-ordered Cronuts) - Jan 24 - suggestions and companions welcome

vonmoishe | Jan 12, 201506:36 AM

I'll be crawling through Soho and the West Village on Saturday, Jan. 24, starting somewhere between 8 and 9 in the morning, likely ending around noon or soon after. I've strategically included some savory spots to fuel up. Here's my planned agenda, which involves almost no backtracking and enables me to get to Dominique Ansel to pick up my pre-ordered Cronuts at the appointed time (10-11). If you come along, you get to share the Cronuts with me. If a place offers a chocolate chip cookie, we'll get one to try. Here's the planned route:

Egg Shop
Pi Bakery
Dominique Ansel
Old Tbilisi
Blue Ribbon
Milk & Cookies
Brief stop to check out Dominique Ansel's new spot @ 137 7th Ave
Roasting Plant
Umami Burger
Haven's Kitchen
City Bakery

When I have led food crawls in the past, here's how we did it... Everyone puts some money into a pot, including me. We pay for stuff to eat out of the pot, and everyone gets a taste. This way, you can have many tastes at many places, instead of getting stuffed if you're eating the whole portion yourself. You pay for anything you're taking home to eat on your own. When we get to the end, any money left in the pot is split up among the participants. Anyone want to come along? Anyone have any suggestions of other places to hit along the way?

In case you're curious, here's a link to a recap of food crawls I led in SF:

Dominique Ansel Bakery,
Dominique Ansel Kitchen,
Egg Shop,
Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill,
Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken,
Milk & Cookies Bakery,
Roasting Plant,
Haven's Kitchen,
The City Bakery,
