New York is all about the walking and I covered a lot of ground today.
I started the day right. The Transit Museum at Grand Central Station. Walked down to Madison Park at got to The Shake Shack just in time to miss "The Line." Had a great hamburger but an even better sour cherry frozen custard cone.
Next stop Falai pastry shop. I had a nice white dome of whipped cream, pistachio cake, soft strawberry pate fruit, and milk chocolate feuillitene. It looked like snow. Very pretty and the whipped cream was not stale, but I was looking for more pistachio flavor and it was not there. I do hope I get to his restaurant though. I love when pastry chefs open restaurants.
Then I met Luisa at the narrow Momofuko. I had a fantastic, spicy, kimchi soup with delicate disks of mochi. And we split a lightly cured hamachi appetizer with well seasoned micro greens and wasabi cream.
But our real meal was at Chikalicious. If you have been to nyc, and you haven't been here, then you have gone out of your way to miss a spiritual experience. Even if you don't like dessert. But more on this when I can keep my eyes open.
