Tables Of New York

When I got back to Los Angeles, the first question a New Yorker friend asked me is, "Where did you eat?" It made me laugh - New Yorkers are so obsessed with restaurants! Here are shots of tables from some of the places where Chloé and I had meals in NYC, and as you see, it's not all about the food.
Lunch - At the Noho Star, Chloé pulled out her magical makeup pouch and laid out a few of her treasures on the table... They include this spectacular black Chanel lipstick, and a present for me: a yummy-scented lip balm from the boutique of Le Crazy Horse, Paris's most extraordinary, quirky and fascinating cabaret.

An afternoon snack - While Chloé was getting her nails done, I sneaked out for an iced tea blended with home made lemonade and a light yogurt chocolate muffin at Café Angélique, on Bleeker and Grove.

Dinner - We ate almost every night at the wonderful Blue Ribbon in the West Village's Downing street, but we also had dinner once at the Noho Star, where I nibbled on a carrot cake and spied on the amazing artist, musician and scholar Lloyd McNeill drawing effortlessly in his sketch-pad...

So many choices for eating in New York. Blue Ribbon must have had amazing food if you dined there so often! Those photos are delicious looking (even the one with the cosmetics-:)).

HILA - posts about food make me hungry...

MARCI - si, tienen un sitio web barbaro.

ARLENE - LOL - cosmetics good enough to eat!

There is a problem when I read posts about food at night... I ransack the fridge and pantry for yummies, and too often, not finding what my appetite yearns for, I settle for just about anything.

That muffin looks scrumptious, and it is funny whenever I go on a holiday the most important part for me is the food!

Thanks for stopping by my little blog :)

Debra said...

Would there ever be enough time in NYC to do all of the things we want to do? You packed a lot into your visit- and yes-the muffin!

I love this series of photos! What an interesting "take" on your trip!

Mary-Laure said...

THE REDDEER - good food can make a trip even more memorable, I agree. Or ruin it.

DEBRA - I totally agree, NYC is a city that has so much to offer that you always leave wishing you had done more - and longing to go back!

Yummy delicious and always so very interesting! How fun to see what Chloé had in her make-up bag... I do that to my sister all the time! :)

Mary-Laure said...

Ah, NYC..! I love that place. And you've captured some of its essence on this post, down to the talented artist sketching at a nearby table. Makes me want to get on a plane and fly there. Right now. Sigh.

I'm fairly certain I would love spending a day gallivanting about with you. :)

Mary-Laure said...

SOLANGE - I know, they have such great choice, but my friend wanted to eat at the EXACT same place every night....! It was a great place though.
Yes, I love sneaking a peek inside my girlfriends' bags.

VINTAGE SIMPLE - yes, whenever I see a post about NYC on a blog, I have this itch to run off to the City.

APRILINIOWA - I am sure we would just have so much FUN!
