There are a lot of food stores and restaurants in my neighborhood. A lot! Some I go to often, some I go to occasionally and some I just glance at the windows. But then there is a moment when I'm walking by...maybe it's the tenth time, or in this case, the hundredth time (at least) when I just have to stop.
Jacques Torres, Mr. Chocolate, you had me at champagne truffles.
I'm a champagne fan and the sign in the window made me stop and smell the chocolate.
I didn't make it inside -- watching my calories -- but this spot is on my list to share with chocolate loving visitors. Somehow calories consumed when a friend is visiting New York don't count. Those are times I'm just being a good guide to the treats of New York.
Yesterday I stopped and smelled the chocolate. But one day I'll step inside for a taste test. Any one want to join me? I think the answer is a resounding yes.
Another glorious spring day in New York City. Services in the morning and then lunch with my bloggy buddy, Lynda. We were at one of my favorite local places, Cibo e Vino. The front doors were open and there was a lovely breeze. A perfect way to spend a spring afternoon.
This was the scene in February. The windows were tightly closed against the Polar V....x and there's a pile of snow around the corner. What a difference a few months make.
I hope you had a lovely spring day, too, and a great weekend. As always, thanks for visiting and take good care.
