Hola! Final week of the year – WOWIE.
Reflecting on MANY things here, not the least of which is what all I ate this year (happy sigh and big grin).
Speaking of which, I was lucky enough to share one more foodie fellas adventure with Doug this week. We bopped over to Philly visiting the just turning one year old Vegan Commissary only to find they mainly serve the public weekend brunches, with an occasional special event. Then I retraced steps from six months ago, introducing Doug to the new swank vegan lounge, Charlie was a sinner. While embarassed for NYC, I’m grateful I can hop a bus and get to this wonderful place. Now to have a date date there (wink). We wrapped things up – yes, there was more food! – at the even newer global street food goes vegan join, V Street, from the Horizons/Vedge team. In short, the magic continues in an even more dynamic way. Already plotting a return to enjoy more of the menu! My pics of V Street (Round 1) are here.
This week, I also had the chance to check out Champs Diner‘s new location (around the corner from Dun-Well Doughnuts). I enjoyed it and want to note it’s WAY closer to a subway stop. Also their menu has indeed changed in its design as well as some of the eats. Was over in that neck of the woods to visit Cocoburg‘s kitchen. This is a locally made, raw coconut jerky that a couple of you mentioned I needed to check out back this Summer during its successful Kickstarter campaign.
Have any of you been to Vegan Bryant Park? What’s THE thing to eat there? drink?
I’ve been in the kitchen a good deal for various home meals, and a few potlucks, this month. So much so I usually need to kick back after all is said and done. Good way to get back into reading though (laughter).
