Andrea and I had a busy Saturday that included carefully planned sustenance around NYC..
First stop, Bagelsmith in Williamsburg on our way into the city.
New York bagels are something special. They are big and serious. Because of the way they are boiled and then baked, they are a little chewy in a good way. Not unlike most New Yorkers, they are a little bit of tough on the outside.
Andrea's bagel was a whole wheat everything with scallion tofu "cream cheese." There was no cream cheese, and instead they made tofu look like the real stuff. I don't know about this, but Andrea swore it was good. This is NOT a knock on tofu - I have purchased it several times in the last few months. I just really loved the real walnut raisin cream cheese generously schmeared across my whole wheat bagel.
After the MOMA and the Tim Burton exhibit, we shopped around Union Square for awhile. Then it was time for more food, specifically frozen yogurt at Pinkberry.
I got the medium (don't judge) and all of the fruit the man could squeeze on the cup of coconut and original yogurt. Apparently, it was magic "have as many toppings as you want" day, so Andrea and I both loaded up with all the toppings possible. Good news is that there is a Pinkberry headed to DC soon so I don't have to sit around longing for frozen yogurt for too many more days.
We saw "The Ghost Writer" in Union Square with my friend Vishal. The movie got great reviews, and they were accurate. We all really liked it!
Time for more food. Dereck, eat your heart out, it's New York pizza at its best.
At Carmine's in Brooklyn, there were a ton of beautiful pizzas to choose from for dinner. Andy and I added a cannoli and calamari to our huge slices of pizza - including one slice of veggie, eggplant, pesto, and CHILI DOG.
So good. So good. And then we were so full. The end.
