When I just barely recovered from the epic Friday night food/wine coma, I kicked off Saturday with...more eating obviously, beginning with dim sum at Golden Unicorn. I am horrible at ordering dim sum actually; it is always handy to have a Cantonese speaking friend to go with. Took the cliche route from there and chased down some bubble tea from Ten Ren. A nutella mint cupcake later, we ended up at Hummus in the West Village. I can't remember how many times I've passed this place and wanted to try.
Warm, fluffy pita with these hummus dips was perfect. And of course, my preoccupation with cafe chairs/tables and afternoon light has me snapping away.
Saturday was probably the worst, muggiest day to be walking around, so Alicia and I ducked into anotheroom in Tribeca and began Saturday night way too early. Wandered to Bar 89 in Soho where we consumed dinner #2 (sadly so normal for us!). Grannied up for the rest of the night in preparation for Sunday brunch.
Back to the West Village for a real French brunch. Another tiny place (slightly bigger than Tartine though) with little elbow room. Amazing Croque Madames with bread toasted to perfection. Also, crazy cappuccino foam, hello!
I was so excited to take Polaroids of people, instead of my usual subjects. Thanks to my friends for being great models. :)
And finally, watching the storm pass from the dry shelter of Filene's Basement in Union Square. I think I would love to live around Union Square if I could ever afford it!
