So, I promised a wrap up of food & other adventures so here we go: When it was obvious that Martha was not asking me to stay (in fact, they do not even give you more than 10 seconds to get a coat on before you are tossed out into the cold), we realized we needed to feed ourselves. We crossed the street to ‘BRGR‘. The window stated that not only did they have amazing beef-fed burgers but that they had the ‘best shake in town’ so this had to be a winner.
I ordered the Rainforest burger and my friend and I had agreed to share the ‘Trio’ which contained shoestring fries, onion rings and sweet potato fries. I was really only excited to try the sweet potato fries as they are so hard to find. I am happy to report that I honestly prefer my baked version. The burger was delectable and juicy. Also, lunching with us was Tonya from This and That, Susan from She’s becoming Doughmestic and Alejandra from Always Order Dessert
Oh, breakfast? It was a power protein pack from Starbuck’s that contains egg, bagel, peanut butter, grapes and cheese.
After lunch, the main priority was shopping at Anthropologie. I had a great time filling up the dressing room but had to leave empty handed. Naturally, the item that looked best on me was over $200. I will be getting this necklace soon though. I will use it to spruce up my old ‘too dull for Martha’ clothing.
While my friend was enjoying some shopping, I met up with my friend Lindsay from Rock and Roll Mama and she was sweet enough to buy me my first Magnolia Bakery Vanilla Cupcake. Yes, a thick topping of super sweet icing on top of a dry tasteless cake may be ideal for some, but I was disappointed. Then again, it was good to know that my cupcakes can beat theirs any day. Also, you should know that even though the cupcake was a disappointment, Lindsay declared the lemon bars to be the best on earth.
After having dessert, the three of us went to eat at Brassierie Ruhlmann. We had some great conversation over my salad ‘Ruhlmann‘. A delicious and lively combination of baby lettuces, radishes, olives, cucumbers, feta, corn and fresh herbs.
We then headed out of the city but as we entered Connecticut, I stated to my friend that I was astonished to realize I had not purchased any of the desired Latte Bowls from Anthropologie. The iPhone was put to work and we soon found ourselves with 15 minutes to shop in Greenwich. I am happy to say that I purchased four of the Latte Bowls and they have been put to good use.
In conclusion, this trip was a fun & social event that I will always remember with fondness.
