Our new years eve started out great. We went on a long run in Central Park with Eli. We did a bit of exploring and walking during our run so it was on the slower side. It’s so easy for the distance to add up in the city. We ended up covering way more mileage than we’d planned.
After our run we went to Le Quotidien for breakfast. I had a tartine with black bean hummus and spicy tahini and an English breakfast. Michael had an unpictured omelet.
In the afternoon, we headed to Grand Central and then Bryant Park with my sister. There is a really cool market in Grand Central with just about anything you can imagine.
We’re so lame. But had to do a reenactment of Gossip Girl while we were there. Spotted.
Then we headed over to Bryant Park to check out our third skating rink of the trip.
My sister had to work the evening shift last night so Michael and I walked down to Chelsea for dinner at Blossom.
Here’s a pic of the menu but as you can see it was super dark in the restaurant so the rest of the photos aren’t worth sharing. It was a tasty dinner but I much preferred my meal at Candle 79 a few months ago.
After dinner we tried to find a place to ring in the new year with little success. After walking around for almost an hour we stopped in at a speakeasy called Middle Branch in midtown which was perfect. Great specialty drinks, a small manageable crowd and a cool vibe. We spent the last bit of 2012 writing down our resolutions and reminiscing about our favorite memories of the year.
Sarah met us after midnight with a couple of her work friends before we all called it a night.
We spent most of today in the car and are now happily home watching School of Rock while lamenting the end of the holidays.
Onward and upward to a busy January. Recipes to come again soon.
Enjoy and Exhale!
