Pretty Desserts at Bottega Louie - Earl Grey Macarons and Chocolate Soufflé
A ridiculously beautiful and open setting filled with the most gorgeous desserts. We didn't have the time or stomach room to sample more, but will definitely be exploring this more thoroughly on our next visit. I did pick up a bag of gourmet marshmallows in a variety of flavors to take home and they were heavenly!
Souper Shabu - Suki Yaki (brown one above), Kombu, and Miso bases w/ Angus Snow Beef, Fish Filet, and a Veggie Plate
Ping has awakened a constant craving for shabu in us so we were thrilled when we could take the whole family to experience it too. Souper Shabu offers an astonishing amount of soup bases (15!) and loads of fresh veggies. My favorite broth was the Suki Yaki - super flavorful.
Ink Sack - Mexican Chocolate Chip Cookie, Jose Andres, and Cold Fried Chicken Sandwiches
I have always wanted to try a Top Chef eatery and we were in the area of Michael Voltaggio's Ink Sack. It did not disappoint. The Cold Fried Chicken was our favorite, but everything used what seemed like the finest / freshest ingredients in flavor combinations we hadn't experienced before.
And of course, we never pass up a photo booth at a party…
The jacket I'm wearing is from H&M (66-0959 in Sz 4 - a new favorite) that I got for $15.
