We just got back from New York and I don't think it could have possibly been a better time. Our days were filled completely with food and friends, old and new, from day to night. We enjoyed the steak for two at Peter Luger, fresh pasta at Malatesta Trattoria, the views at The Boat House, amazing apps at Stanton Social, danced the night away on the Gansevoort rooftop, shopped the city, met Conan the Barbarian (he's HUGE), had a picnic in central park (more on that tomorrow) and toasted a very special birthday girl. We even felt mildly like we could possibly be New Yorkers as we were with locals the whole time and didn't so much as pass by Times Square or the Statue of Liberty. We are awaiting our next trip anxiously.
