|A wet morning in Manhattan.|
I wanted to try a french breakfast spot that was near the hotel.
|It was so early in the morning that the outside lights were still on.|
They had lots of bread.
There was one big communal table and a smattering of small tables.
Right away I ordered a bowl of coffee and some orange juice. The long run I did yesterday had me craving lots of fluids.
And because this restaurant is all about the bread - I ordered two soft boiled eggs with bread.
Later in the morning I met up with my friend's mother at the Museum of Modern Art to see the Willem de Kooning exhibit. She treated me to the museum visit and I treated her to lunch.
We started lunch with an appetizer of flat bread and seasoned ricotta.
|The ricotta was slightly salty with a nice drizzle of olive oil, some cracked black pepper and a sprinkle of fresh thyme.|
They had some pretty interesting choices on the menu.
I picked the arugala burrata salad and my friend's mom chose the organic chicken.
|Arugula burrata salad.|
|Organic chicken salad.|
The food was wonderful but the company was even better.
|Isn't she beautiful?|
The one of me by myself didn't turn out so well but the one I took with my friend's mom turned out great.
So, if you ever wondered what I look like - here 'ya go.
|Yep, that is me on the right:-)|
