So this time, when my Husband and I were planning our anniversary getaway, I did a little research and asked around for some recommendations. Here are some of the highlights of our culinary adventures:
For our first meal, we went with a place near the hotel that was recommended by the Concierge (a smart, funky chick named Aisha who turned out to be a fabulous resource!) called Friend of the Farmer. I had the buttermilk pancakes filled with minced apples and cinnamon (see above) and they were to die for – served in a skillet with fresh pure maple syrup. A French press of fabulous coffee later, we were set to start our day, beautifully satiated!
Union Square was a vibrant and fun place to stay. Here’s a pic of the vibrant farmers’ market in the square. A bountiful, interesting array of organic foods displayed with panache.
Across the square from our hotel, we saw Republic, a bustling noodle house that seemed like a lively and fun place for a light lunch. My coconut-pineapple juice and seafood dumplings were the perfect small meal to keep me going for the rest of the day!
