Taurin’s brother came up to NY for the weekend, and the first thing we did was to take him to grab some fried chicken at Pies n Thighs. We also ate some ginormous biscuits with buttery mashed potatoes, baked beans, and smoked pork collard greens.
We spent the rest of the weekend eating, walking it off, eating, walking it off…such a good excuse to explore my neighborhood!
I think the highlight of all our weekend meals was the single ShackBurger at Shake Shack, accompanied by fries and cold beer. The Brooklyn location was not nearly as crowded, which was a pleasant surprise.
I met up with Jannese for a lunchdate at Ashbox, a small Japanese cafe in Greenpoint. I had a big mug of frothy matcha latte, a spicy salmon onigiri, and a homemade tofu salad. I’ll definitely be returning, especially on a sunny day!
The Manhattan skyline. Evenings are warm enough that I can brave the wind and watch the sunset from my rooftop. It’s starting to feel like late winter, and I’m realizing it’s been almost a month since I’ve moved up here.
