New York Part 2

On the third day David and I decided to go see the 9/11 memorial.
It was a strange and moving experience being there.

My friend arrived later that day and we stayed in the gorgeous Hudson Hotel.
It is a really chic hotel, centrally located and with the most charming terrace.
I can highly recommend staying there.
They also have a lounge/bar which is really popular and packed in the evenings, along with another more casual bar area, which is also packed.

For dinner we went to The Breslin.
They had a small but delicious menu.
Which I always prefer to be honest, makes choosing a lot easier.

To drink I had Princess & the Pea and A had, I’m not sure, it might have been a Fancy Pimm’s Cup.New York // L.AlexandraFor dinner I had the most delectable burrata with peas, favas, smoked trout roe and mint, and a side of la ratte potatoes with wilted dandelion greens and anchovy. New York // L.AlexandraWhile A went for the lamb burger with some seriously tasty fries.New York // L.AlexandraWe followed dinner with some tourist action in Times Square at 1 am.
I was so surprised to see how busy it still was so late at night.
New York really is the city that doesn’t sleep!

  1. New York seems just absolutely breathtaking and yet really down to earth. And the food, don’t even let me begin, since I am so hungry;)

    9/11 must’ve been really impressing, with all it’s grief and history, can’t even imagine it.

    It looks like you had a lot of fun on your trip, really looking forward to my trip, whenever that might be :) x

    • It’s so crazy but yet so cool. Absolutely loved it!
      And oh yes, the food was amazing. Craving it right now too ;)

      I did, so happy I finally go to go. And the longer you wait, the more the suspense builds. Hehe x
