We had some good eats this past weekend in Manhattan, but here's what I liked best:
Best pastry / dessert
The eclairs - both coffee and chocolate - from Bouchon Bakery
Shake Shack double cheeseburger (I would have gotten the Shackburger but for the fact that I had to share my burger with my daughter, and I wasn't sure if she'd like or appreciate the shack sauce), with a black-and-white shake (which she definitely liked)
The Texas salt and pepper beef ribs at Blue Smoke were really delicious, as was the mac and cheese
Also good were the sweetbreads at Landmarc, the pastrami sandwich at the Stage Deli, and the espresso at Zibetto.
All in all, good eating over three days.
