I am flying high for food right now … literally. Not quite sure of our cruising altitude but I do know I am one happy FoodFlirt heading to NY to host a party at Eleven Madison Park in celebration of the Wonderful pomegranate harvest that’s happening in a few days! I also am lucky enough to be attending a few Wine & Food events including Sweet on Saturday night!
Tonight I’ll be devouring, in an elegant and graceful way of course, the bliss that I hope is Daniel NYC. I am quite excited. The only other restaurant I want to try more in New York is was Per Se but after my lack luster experience at Bouchon, Beverly Hills … my palate will pass on another Thomas Keller restaurant for a minute. (I know, I know, you can’t compare them, but I’m still belly-broken about my mediocre dinner.)
And as if this weekend could become any more of a foodie-fantasy … Giada De Laurentiis is on my flight! I tweeted her, I just had to, to say that her reality is my dream and it’s true. I simply cannot deny it. So, we’re about to land and I have not eaten anything today save a cup of weak airplane java and a diet coke. Good old American Airlines ran out of meals even though we now have to pay for the cardboard fare they call “food.” And, get this, they ran out after they served 3 people!! They only had 3 sandwiches! Oy vey says the shiksa. That’s me 😉 Now onwards to my NY adventure. If I fall in love, I’ll let you know … with the city of course.
