Feasting in the New Year!

 

So much for a New Year’s resolution of going to the gym and losing weight! To ring in 2010 and to celebrate my sister’s birthday, we went to Norma’s for the BEST breakfast (aka Brunch/Lunch) in the city. I would save Norma’s for a special occassion, because it is quite pricey, but it was perfect for what we were going for! 

They gave us a taste of their “Smoothie of the day” to start. It was a fruity mix of bananas and other fresh items (not sure what)What we ordered:

*Chocolate Decadence French Toast covered in strawberries, pistachios and valrhona chocolate sauce
*Potato Pancakes james beard award winning recipe with homemade cranberry apple sauce and sweet carrot payasam Is your mouth watering yet?

 Happy Thanksgiving! 

 
 I’m not one to be very into any food that contains pumpkin, but a co-worker brought in a homemade Pumpkin Pie with Pecan Crust yesterday and I must admit it was incredible!! I had to share the recipe with you guys, it will be a definite hit at your Thanksgiving gathering. Another cute option- Mini Pecan Pumpkin Pies

My Neighborhood Joint: Waterfront Ale House – New York, NY    

I should start by saying that I’m one of the most finicky eaters I know. I eat every combination of chicken you could imagine and consider myself a connoisseur of sorts. I think chicken is best paired with honey mustard, but finding honey mustard that meets my standards is a hard task. After passing Waterfront for years, I finally stumbled in one day. To my surprise this place has some of the best food in the city (in my opinion at least). I start with fresh popped popcorn that I can scoop out of the machine myself (for free). I order the “Tuscan Chicken Club” (grilled chicken, fresh mozzarella, field greens, tomato and balsamic on warm focaccia bread) every time without fail. I opt out of the tomato and balsamic and get the honey mustard on the side (it’s amazing). My boyfriend, the more adventurous type, gets the “Pulled Pig Sandwich” (double smoked pork, hand shredded & smothered in barbecue sauce), which he raves about. For an extra $.75 we each get the amazing waffle fries on the side. Ask for them extra

crispy…they’re incredible.

And…there’s nothing better than some good ole’ leftovers…
Other items on the menu that are different than your typical pub food:
-Venison & Black Bean Chili with tequila cilantro sour cream & warm tortilla chips
-Award Winning Barbecue Spare Ribs served with sweet potato fries & creamy mustard sauce
Also, make sure to try the homemade hot sauce and bbq sauce!
 
Mmmm hungry yet? Check it out and let me know what you think!
