New York Food

We had a wonderful time in NYC, but I am so glad to be back home. I went to oodles of great shops and restaurants that have inspired my creativity. Here are some of the best places we dined at last week. Enjoy!

Pop Burger
This little hamburger spot may be the coolest joint I have ever dined in. I wish my interior shots of the simple decor and Andy Warhol's soup cans had turned out.




S'Mac NYC
S'MAC (short for Sarita's Macaroni & Cheese) is located in the heart of Manhattan's East Village. They specialize in macaroni and cheese, all four of us got different versions of this dish, and they were all quite spectacular. I dined on a swanky goat cheese mac 'n cheese and Lulu's dish had figs and camembert cheese.




Magnolia Bakery
I think we can honestly declare this to be the birthplace of the cupcake resurgence.





Dean and Deluca

Lulu and I loitered in this shop for a very long time. Did I look like a freak ogling cheese and photographing it? Yes. I get a little weak in the knees when I see their beautiful sugars.





Moomah
This wonderful restaurant and crafting spot was steps from our Tribeca hotel. We had a great healthy lunch followed by making super cool crafts. Lulu made this fabric headband that looks like it came from Anthropologie and Deke made a felt mouse. Everything about this spot is cool and creative!






Junior's
We had sandwiches and cheesecake as big as my head!

Hellllooooo my friend! I have been away from your blog too long. You've been to NYC and back - the pix look fabulous and I am very hungry now. The worst kind of hungry - where I can't possibly go get what I'm hungry for. Hungry for swanky hamburger joints and fabulous skylines and funky shopping! Lots of great posts and true Linda highlights to behold! (loved the post on Cedric too) Well, welcome home and I'm glad you had another wonderful trip you could share with the rest of us!

Oh I have to get back at least one more time and then maybe without that little fellow that refuses to eat anything else than hamburgers. (ah we are in the States aren't we?) Have a great day!

Oh wow. You promote this better than the food network. And now I want cupcakes!

isn't NY just a blast? I think I've been to Junior's Too. Can't wait to see what you think of Tinsel trading. I haven't been to their new location. I've heard that the new one isn't as good but it's still Tinsel trading???? Did you go to Tender Buttons? that's my next stop.

I LOVED all of your fantastic photos, and I too, would have loved to have been tucked away in your pocket on this trip!
