BTB Goes to NYC - Part 1

7/28/2009 12:04:00 AM
I've been to NYC more times than I can remember, but this past weekend was by far the most awesome of all my trips. Great food, celebrity sightings and overall chillin.


Omakase @ Sasabune - chef's choice sushi tasting menu. Definitely one of the best sushi meals I've ever had.

Burgers & Steak @ Peter Luger - this place is renowned for their steak. But I was also told that their burgers (only served at lunch) are really great too. Soooo, we had both. Each of us had a burger and we shared a porterhouse on top of that.

Black Label Burger @ Minetta Tavern - this may have been the best burger I've ever eaten EVER.

Chocolate Cookie & Ice Cream @ Bouchon Bakery - I was told that this year Per Se actually surpassed French Laundry. I didn't have the chance to eat at Per Se, but we did stop by Bouchon Bakery for a snack. The cookie was warm and melty and the vanilla bean ice cream it came with was phenomenal.

Brazilian Food @ Esperanto - Had dinner at this really cute restaurant in the East Village. Live music, passion fruit caipirinhas, and amazing Brazilian food.

Celebrity Sightings:

Alton Brown @ Sasabune - Alton Brown is my favorite chef on the food network. I love the whole explaining the science of cooking thing that he does. He was there having dinner with a friend and we were the only other group in the restaurant.

Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, and Bill Hader @ Minetta Tavern
- the three of them were in a group of about 15 people having dinner. If you haven't read the reviews, Minetta Tavern is apparently one of the hippest places in town. I had to try real hard to prevent myself from giggling like a schoolgirl when I saw them.

I'll post some pics of the food tomorrow.

PS. I rode Bolt Bus to and from NYC. It's my preferred means of transport. Although I would like to try the double decker megabus sometime.
