New York Meals

Obviously we are very happy to be at home with the near-miss blizzard today in New York. We did eat some very nice meals there -- here is a brief report on a few restaurants I haven't mentioned in earlier posts:

We had a nice lunch at Westville on Hudson St. shortly after checking into our nearby hotel:

A big selection of roasted vegetable, served several to a plate.

Len's sandwich

At AQUAGRILL on Spring Street we enjoyed a really appealing dinner:

Three kinds of local oysters -- there are 33 kinds on the menu.
I ate two of them before taking the photo, so two shells are empty.
Len's Bouillabaise -- I had scallops.
Pear Tarte Tatin for dessert

We had brunch at Stage Door Deli near B&H Photo (where we shopped):
Coffee, a tiny juice, and French toast with strawberries all for $8.75.
City Winery actually makes wine in downtown New York City, and serves it with a variety of food. They also have a large performance space, which wasn't offering any entertainment the night we ate there.
I ordered meatballs. Very nice.

It all looks delicious, esp. those oysters! Glad you got out before the snow!

Hi Mae,
It never occured to me that you would still be in the city for the snowstorm. For some reason, I thought you were home already. Good thing you made it home safely.

I had no idea there were so many varieties of oysters. I'm guessing they are farm raised? I know they are farm raising oysters on Long Island quite successfully. Each meal looks delicious. The only place I haven't been to is Aquagrill. I must check it out!!!

Thank you so much for sharing, Mae...Glad you are home safe and sound:)
