Weekending City Style.

...begins of course, on Friday. We set out in the morning under clear, chilly blue skies and headed down to Chelsea.

First stop was Cookshop for an early lunch. We started with burrata and it was the best we'd had. That toast was spread with roasted garlic and the cheese was nestled into a wild nettle pesto.

After lunch we headed to the High Line. This was our first visit and wow! what a great space. also WOW! it was windy and cold. 

We got off at Chelsea Market and made a bee line to Ninth Street Espresso.

We wandered around the market for a while to warm up. What a fun place it's turned out to be! On our next trip, we'll definitely plan a meal-time stop, hopefully on a weekday so it's not so crowded.

Next we headed to Pottery Barn and then made a quick stop at Lion Brand for Sara to pick out a color for a new afghan. All that cold wind wore us out and we headed back to our apartment via Union Square (where I finally saw #blueskyblooms!)

We got cozy with our books, took quick naps and then had fun with Yelp figuring out a fun place to go for cocktails. We had dinner reservations on the Upper East Side, so we looked around there. Lo and behold we found The Penrose. Super fun on a Friday night. We had cocktails and a cheese plate and enjoyed lots of people watching. The Upper East Side has changed a lot in the five years since Katie lived there!

We walked to dinner at Seamstress. I have no photos of the food, but it was all delicious. Sara said it was her favorite meal of the trip and I'd have to agree (we set a very high bar in that regard!) I did get a few photos of Sara, certainly my favorite dinner companion.

Saturday we packed up, checked out and headed to the Upper East Side to meet a friend of mine. We had brunch at Isabella's and I did take photos.
smoked salmon omelette for Sara
and smoked salmon platter for me
Then all too soon, it was time to go (and raining!) We shared a cab to the airport...and flew our separate ways home. The only bright spot about getting home late on Saturday was getting to see this guy (and his mama!) on Sunday!

I can't wait to go back - or really anywhere - with Sara. She's such a fun and easy travel companion. Maybe next time she'll manage tickets to Hamilton and invite me along!

Sounds wonderful! Isn't Yelp so awesome for finding good places to eat and drink?

Time really does fly when you're having fun! Coming home might be a bit of a let down if you weren't coming home to that cute little guy. I did have to look into your meal at Cookshop; I had no idea that wild nettles were edible! They are all along the Delaware River banks and I'm careful to stay away from them when I go fishing with John because they sting your skin like little razor blades. Next time I'll collect them (with gloves) and make pesto after I blanch them.

What a wonderful trip, Mary! And all of that delicious food...I'm hungry just reading about it. I read a little about Hamilton. I would love to see it but tickets sound impossible and possibly pretty expensive. What a sweet face to come home to. : )

Oh, so enjoyed my "vicarious" trip to there ever a time when it's not crowded? Hamilton: in our next lives, I'm a-feared. But in case, count me in ;-))...Glad you had such a grand time! And thx for sharing.
