The usual

Another dinner, another bout of gluttony. I had gone to David Burke's Fromagerie in Rumson, NJ a while back, and it was a wonderful experience (I will never forget how I was asked if I wanted a plush little stool for my handbag!), so I was happy to try his Townhouse in the Upper East Side last night. Many menu items were exactly the same between the two, but the vibe and decor were very different. I loved the red accents everywhere. The balloons in the hallway were random and cute (pictured below).

As I am home in NJ on my 4+ year old barely alive Macbook, these pictures took forever to put together. White balance was a nightmare as well, but what can ya do?

Love the little egg artwork.

Scallops "benedict" looked so cool with egg and lobster foam. The pretzel crusted crabcake was fun, but I always like when opposite textures get together...now that I think back, I might have gotten this dish before. Entrees, lots o' meat. Naturally I was able to polish off my dessert after I thought I was "stuffed" and proceeded to eat some of Mr. B's apple tart with dulce de leche ice cream. Mmm. Cannot really ever go wrong with an apple tart.

Other cute things. The drunken donuts sounded so good but even with my sweet tooth, I'm not sure if I could put much of a dent in that tower. Red accents and balloons. :)

More noshing this weekend. I weighed myself for the first time in months on my parents' high-tech scale. Silly move.


  1. I still don't know how you manage to stay so thin with all these food outings =)

    Do you carry a grey card? I hated having to fix WB for indoor evening photos. I don't care that people say it is easy to fix WB in RAW, but having the right WB in the first place seems to work better for me. I carry one (Lastolite LL LR1250 12-Inch Ezybalance Card), which folds into a size that I can fit into my purse, and I really love it =)

  2. ooh good advice! I will be on the lookout for a grey card now. :]

  3. I do wonder why you're not round. Gets you some great photo opportunities, though.

    Agree about the grey card. Don't forget to reset your WB when you're done, though.
