one of my favorite things about new york city is that it's full of little treasures. there are so many whole-in-the-wall restaurants that are hugely ambianceful and make some of the best food you've ever tasted. there are also adorable little shops, amazing hole-in-the-wall jazz clubs and so much more! i love exploring the city and finding new treasures every time i'm there. here are a few of the treasures we found last week...
"baked by melissa". located 529 broadway (on spring st. btw. broadway and mercer). they are the tiniest, tastiest little cupcakes in the city. adorable. while buying some i met melissa herself, who is a doll. if you're ever in the city, try them!
my new d&g sunglasses, which i bought on canal street (real d&g, of course). we found lots of fun purchases on canal street that day
the shake shack. best burger you'll ever eat. or so i hear. i was sick with food poisoning the night before everyone ate here, so i wasn't quite ready to handle a burger. but everyone raved about this place and i intend to try it next time i'm in the city.
5 napkins. so ambianceful. really yummy gourmet burgers.
cosi. a fancy cafe downtown with amazing pizza!
max brenner. this place is unreal. yummy food and famous for their chocolate desserts, which will change your life. they literally bring you a shot of melted chocolate with every dessert you buy. try it, you'll love it!
and, of course, central park. cory, ben and i took a walk here one day. it is b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. a great place for walking and reflection. it's amazing how you can get lost in there and forget that you're in new york city. i love how lush and green it is. made me miss the east coast. this will be my sanctuary when i live in the city.
