New York, part 3




So. Back to our trip! Here's what we ate on our second day, when we walked up Fifth Avenue to Columbus Circle. We had lunch at Quality Meats, where my chopped salad with chicken, bacon and blue cheese dressing was just ok (huge chunks of raw red onion?), Dagmar's steak was delicious and Lena hit the jackpot with an open-faced sandwich with truffled chicken salad, fries and a small salad. The service was very slow, but we were offered a glass of champagne as compensation for waiting.


After all our walking, we were planning on coffee and a little something at Bouchon Bakery but there were no tables available and our feet were killing us. So we stopped at Jamba Juice, where I had their seasonal "Berried 'n chocolate" which was a lot better than I had actually expected.

We had dinner at Roxy's Deli, right on Times Square. While perhaps not the finest of dining, it suited our needs at the time. We just ordered appetizers to share - fried chicken, some weird fried rolled up tortillas with chicken inside and guacamole for dipping, and OH THE WONDER: fried macaroni & cheese. Who thought of that? It should be illegal! (And I have to try and make it myself, soon.) No photo of that, though.


We also shared a huge slice of cheesecake. Their cheesecake window looked very promising, and after a lot of contemplating, we chose the Caramel Apple Streusel. Enjoy the photos - we enjoyed the cheesecake!

Anne. I agree about fried mac & cheese. AMAZING! I don't know if I could manage to do it myself or not.
