Babe's done taking his tests!!! He took the 9th and final exam on Saturday AM while I dreamt of alarm clocks and Bobby Flay.
To celebrate, we went Out. Taking Monar's suggestion we went to the Hudson Hotel for a cocktail. What a gorgeous bar - and neat hotel. $21 for two cocktails is steep but the place makes you feel hella fancy (but not boring!). Nice to have a drink at a hotel because all the peeps there are on vacaciones so you feel yourself like you are on a trip.
We had the most scrumptious dinner at Bobby Flay's Bar Americain where we ate everything in sight. We started with an appetizer each, I got the best Onion Soup I've ever had, they called it and Babe got the Artisinal Ham Tasting - YUM! I got for dinner a NY Strip Steak which was tender and delicious and so well seasoned and he got a red snapper with crusty plantain breading on the outside.
For dessert we had a BlackBerry souffle and Whiskey Eclairs covered with caramel sauce which we paired with a delicious dessert wine flight tasting.
The service was great, the atmosphere was neat - oversized and funky. I recommend! It was totally pricey, but that is because we really got whatever we wanted - and Babe deserved it because he's been studying for years. YEARS.
We ended the night with a night cap at Vintage on 9th Ave. a wine bar with a cute casual feel and a nice crowd.
Time change people, don't forget to change your clocks.
