Thanks for the kind word oregon. I cheated yesterday and today and had someone else cook my food for me...and my pictures were from my crappy camera and I didn't wanna "be that guy" so bear with me.....
so, starting yesterday lunch, we went to 11 Madison Park in NYC .
Fiance had winter salad and then a lobster roll (a really really really GOOD lobster roll)
I had agnollotti with suckling pig, followed by a duo of lamb.
we skipped dessert for lunch and had a cocktail instead
then, went to the hotel, took a nap. and went to Pegu for some more cocktails.
after....perhaps ....3 cocktails...(really good cocktails) we hopped in a cab and went to Jean-Georges.....
started out with an amuse of a cumin flavored soup, salmon wrapped around a pear? and a piece of citrus.
then, fiance had....tuna ribbons, I had....beet/goat
next I had seared Fois with cranberry foam perhaps? she had...halibut? with a consomme? No pictures...
then finished (well kinda finished) with....I had crispy rabbit (spicy and awesome!) she had beef tenderloin with japaneno something or other,
then, we "finished" off with some dessert....not sure if you guys know about jean-georges desserts, but...well pastry chef is a genius. They come in petite fours and you order by "topic" winter, apple, caremel, or chocolate was on the menu...I choose chocolate...
fiance choose winter.
then......waiting for the check.....we REALLY finished it off, with some.....marshmellos, macroons and chocolate. (hey, I didn't order it....just came...and well...I'm not going to waste food!)
then we slept.
and we slept.
Until this morning, when we woke! Then went to Momofuku milk bar (bakery) for the ultimate mcmuffin.....homemade english muffins, blackpepper butter, carmelized onions, thick slab of bentons bacon, and a poached deep fried egg.
(and a strawberry milk)
6$ of goodness right there.
fiance had pork buns. (like I've been trying to recreate.....having them at momofuku's, you realize....you just cant)
now we are headed to xmas eve dinner!!!!:eek: but not before a bite of some momofuku cookies!
