Since this is the second time I’ve visited New York, I wanted to make sure that I set aside time to visit the less-tourist focused parts of the city. Among this “locals list” was a jog through Central Park, which seemed like such a dreamy, classic New Yorker way to start a morning.
Unsurprisingly, it didn’t disappoint. It was perfectly cool and sunny at the same time, and I even had time to stop for a bagel and coffee mini-picnic. Later in the afternoon, Tim joined me to visit Eataly. He loves cooking Italian food, and I love eating it, so we were both really looking forward to dining and shopping in the market.
We couldn’t stop commenting how much we wish we had something like this in Los Angeles– fresh and unusual ingredients, restaurants, wine tasting, cooking classes, and beautiful kitchen and dining items all in an open-air, inviting market. We had dinner (which was fabulous) and I was particularly impressed by the espresso maker! I think it would be so fun to stop by Eataly, pick up ingredients, and bring them home to cook for a creative and romantic date.
Finally, we ended our night at Yankee Stadium. I love Safeco Field (go Mariners!) but it was exciting to see another stadium as well. There’s just nothing like a baseball game.
Hope your weekend is off to a good start!
