Welcome to Part 2 of the NYC Eating Tour! We left off yesterday at the Union Square Christmas market.
Since we were in the area, Emily and I decided to stop by Fishs Eddy, recommended by Anna over at Dear Friend.
Fishs Eddy is a mecca of kitchen goods – plates, glasses, cake stands galore. My idea of heaven!
They even had a Charley Harper line – my favorite!
For dinner Emily and I went to S’mac and waited in line for 25325 hours. But when that buffalo chicken mac & cheese arrived, we realized it was SO worth the wait. The photo totally doesn’t do it justice, but the mac comes in a skillet straight from the oven for optimum ooooey gooey chee-z-iness. Give me buffalo mac and cheese and peanut butter buttercream and I’m set for life.
The next day we set out for Francois Payard Bakery for some MORE macarons. We decided to limit ourselves to just one macaron (since we were heading to brunch afterwards), and chose the Cookies ‘n Cream flavor. It was PERFECT.
We were early for our brunch reservations, so we popped in to Murray’s Cheese Shop and juuust couldn’t resist tasting a cheese straw.
After a belly full of snacks, we made our way to brunch at Sweet Revenge. Emily had heard about their red velvet waffles online and we knew we needed them in our lives A.S.A.P.
Though I’m 98% sure the waffles were simply red velvet cupcake batter fried into waffle form, they were some of the BEST I’ve ever had. And they were served with whipped cream cheese and SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE. These people know the way to my heart, for realz.
Finally, we met up with Alix and Kaitlin (hey ladies!) for brunch #2 at Cafe Cluny. Though there were no Amy Poehler sightings, the food was deeeelicious and it was great to catch up with some college friends!
All in all a fabulous two days of eating in NYC. Splitting everything with my sister let us try more amazing foods without getting too full – the best of both worlds. Can’t wait to go back!
