I went to a very enlightening presentation last night. MORI had commissioned the largest ever global study on the best city in which to live, work and do business involving 18,000 people. They said they were going to give me all the information at the end, but they didn’t so […]

MY daughter and I were given some excellent advice about where to eat and found some fabulous places. To be honest she would have happily eaten cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery all week:-
But when we weren’t holed up in Magnolia’s with cupcakes stuck in each cheek and required some additional sustenance, we went to a couple of fabulous places for breakfast/brunch:-
NORMA’S – in the Parker Meridian hotel. OMG. Absolutely divine blueberry pancakes. The best freshly squeezed orange juice I have ever had and scarily delicious looking chocolate french toast and your own little jars of maple syrup. Cute:-
It doesn’t look like a stereotypical American diner – presumably because it’s in a posh hotel – but the food more than made up for the atmosphere.
The other must go to breakfast place is BUBBIES in Tribeca – just great. Again almost the best blueberry pancakes in town and a more interesting atmosphere.
In the evening we went to these ones:-
BALTHAZAR restaurant in Soho was mentioned several times over – a lively large French restaurant renowned for it’s exceptional design. You have to book. Susan Sarandon is often there apparently, as is a host of other celebs. Excellent food:-
We had to go to an all American steakhouse and WOLFGANG’s was the classic steakhouse we were recommended. There are a few of them around – we went to the midtown one and had a lovely meal. Brilliant (huge) steaks. Great atmosphere, a good menu and lovely service.
We made a bit of a mistake with our order – asked for chips – forgot that we were supposed to order fries – look at these homemade “crisps”!! I have never seen crisps that big before:-
PASTIS was another great place to eat in the evening – or breakfast/Sunday brunch – it’s in the MeatPacking district – very cool:-
