First night's dinner was at Momofuku where the specialty is a bun. Like a Japanese taco I suppose.
Prince Street Pizza was recommended by my friend, and it was indeed the best square we ever had.
We ate Vietnamese pho soup, which was super good.
We played in Union Square Park, which, like everywhere we went in the city, was absolutely packed with people.
The Chelsea Market was all hip and trendy like a magazine. It did look like a nice gourmet and pricy place to get your picnic snacks for a walk on the Highline.
We spent a lovely afternoon walking on The Highline with our friends. An old elevated train track converted into a beautiful public space.
Dinner at The Park was just perfect, with this artisan cheese board as an appetizer.
Jane's Carousel was just $2. That's pretty incredible for New York.
Dinner at Tacombi was quite good. There's an old VW bus taco truck in the middle of the dining room that whips up the tacos.
Big Gay Ice Creap Shop where the best thing on the menu is called a salty pimp. Its fun to order a dessert called a salty pimp. There's a unicorn mural painted on the wall that has been bedazzled with rhinestones.
It was so yummy we went there twice!
So when the boys arrived we stayed another day and brought them to 30 Rockefeller Center and Prince Street Pizza.
Really the best part was catching up with my old friend and getting to know his wife and son better. They were generous to put us up for the weekend and show us around to all these cool places. We are hoping to show them some southern hospitality in the near future!
