Steak and Veggies

Over the last few weeks, Kristina has enjoyed a few fun eating adventures with friends. Here’s a quick recap of where she’s been– and some definite recommendations if you find yourself in NYC!

Happy Hour

If you’ve kept up with the blog, you know that my book club met for a specialty food tasting with Francine Segan a few weeks ago. Before the talk, we stopped at Bocado Cafe for a few drinks and apps. Bocado has a great happy hour, is liberal with their tastings and offers a variety of tasty appetizers to start a meal or enjoy alongside drinks. I’m not on the Upper East Side as much as I was when I lived in East Harlem, but Bocado is certainly on my list for next time I’m in the area.

Lunch Treat

Recently, I checked out Mulberry and Vine in Tribeca. Though I try to bring my lunch most days, this place could become a go-to for special days as it’s a short walk from my office. It was bright and vibrant inside and offered a variety of healthy and delicious choices! I went with the roasted cauliflower, housemade green sriracha; organic arugula, dates, maple walnuts, goat feta, balsamic; and seasonal veg curry over rice. The arugula salad was one of the best I’ve ever had and I loved the green siracha over roasted cauliflower. I’ll definitely be back to try other items on the menu!

Dinner and a Show

Steak is probably the furthest away you can get from the above, but that’s exactly what I had at STK Midtown before seeing Kinky Boots with my college roommate a few Saturdays ago. I don’t go out for steak often, but when I do, a medium rare filet mignon is where’s it’s at. This one delivered, but it was the dessert that hit it out of the park. Oh, and if you’re looking for a show, don’t miss Kinky Boots!
