"How I spend my summer vacation"

Shoeman | Jul 7, 2003 01:57 PM

This is the best 72 hrs of eating, I've ever had.

Barney Greengrass - Lunch - Sturgeon, Lox and onion scramble. Whitefish and chopped liver salad.

Ouzaria - Dinner - Probably the least adventurous meal, but I had the best grilled red snapper and lamb chops with mint sauce. The four spread pita platter was the only dissappointment of the weekend.

Ony - Lunch - tuna and avacado tartare, amazing. Raman with chicken breast, salmon balls, japanese leeks and spinach. Shrimp shumai, awesome.

Kati Roll - egg and chicken

Lupe - Sardines, eggplant parm, english peas with mint.
Fried pork shin, the most decadent thing I've ever eaten. Veal saltimbuca.

Sullivan Street Bakery - potato slice and radiccio (sp) and three cheeses.

Yogurt Place II - strained with mango and grapes.

Balthazar - Le Grand. Steak Frites, the best. Lamb chops and lamb sausage.

Soho Grand Lounge, Fanelli's cafe, Playwright Pub - for drinks.

BTW, for parents who did the entire trip with a 3 year old, the no smoking ban work out great for us (please do not turn this thread into a debate about smoking, but for our first time in NYC since the enforcement, it worked out great.)
