…how I’ve missed you. It’s been 24 days since last update. For shame! And trust me, no good excuse.
I’ve been eating like a fiend.
At some fantastically good places, too. With good friends. With new friends! So, the need to air my dirty laundry in public is a vow to myself and anyone who reads this…<hi dad>…to be more committed. No more neglecting. If I can eat, I can write.
New mantra. Kinda like a second-wind resolution. A taste of the last few weeks…yep, read it like a menu.
Lady Marmalade, Fire on the East Side, Insomnia
Pure Spirits Oyster House & Grill, Lola’s Commissary
Foxley, Oyshi, Harlem, Kokoro, Nyood, Masa, O&B Café Grill, Starfish, RubyWatchco (sweet lord, just wait ’til I get to this one), Seafood for Thought, Guu Izakaya
Soma Chocolatemaker, Sweet Escape, Nadège
See, Gowalla’s good for something! You folks on 4sq are lucky…would’ve turned off your notifications long ago. And yes, I wear these like badges of honour. Rather…badges of GLUTTONY.
We’ve got some home-cooking thrown into the mix as well, by some special ladies in my life. My mama, for one. My bestest, for another. Think I also tried a new recipe this month. Notice, singular. Will regale you with stories & pictures, promise.
Warning: It’ll be out of order. sigh. Breaking every rule in the book. Since I couldn’t get my sh*t together, this is what happens. And some, simply need to be aired out first… like my first media event!!! And Ruby. And Seafood for Thought. And Guu. And home-made pho.
In other news! Next week, if I’m so lucky…will be checking out a new restaurant w/ a certain someone ;)
Cue Julie & Julia. Except. I’m not cooking. And, not being interviewed. And, not channeling Julia Child.
Hmm. Not the greatest analogy, was it? But damn it, will be JUST as exuberant as that red-head.
And with that, will leave you hanging… ’cause I kinda want you to come back ;) This wknd. Me. MacBook. Balcony. Writing.
BBQ anyone? Just head south of the barricade.
