JULIA CHILD cooks Turkey

Julia cooks a turkey on her show in 1963.  Her little helpers were cleverly kept out of sight.


DINING in the street in NYC

A new restaurant in Prospect Heights…..”BURMESE”………so their restaurant in the street……..RANGOON.

NYC Restaurants in the street

Many artists now find work….painting the plywood walls.

DINING in the street in NYC

Cluny Cafe in Greenwich Village…….$100 for lunch.

They have created a cute “Parisian Caffe” on the cobblestones.


It is a snobby kind of attitude……and pricy food.  Onion soup $16, salad $20. roasted cauliflower $28, Burger $25…….. side of fries $10, slice of cake 14…….. glass of wine 16, ……coffee $6.50……. tax and tip………..so LUNCH is $100 per person.

ANTON’S in Greenwich Village

ANTON’S…….a new restaurant in Greenwich Village on Hudson Street…………is now open for LUNCH on Fridays.

HANGER STEAK for $32…….raw……slimy onions sludge and           pointless parsley.

$24…….a small portion of pasta with breadcrumbs.  Tasteless.

The best part of ANTON’S is the art work.

 

WINTER FARMER’S MARKET

I am rather tired of ROOT VEGGIE’S……….

 

ALFRED was the most interesting thing at the market……….but he was not an edible.

BIRTHDAY LUNCH at Suprema Provisions

This was my 8th and last BIRTHDAY LUNCH for January.

The burger at SUPREMA ………..[ on Bleecker street in the Village]

was voted the #1 HAMBURGER in New York.

And……it is!

Our waiter was as delightful as the burger!

Iberico belotta jambon jam, black garlic sauce, roasted baby tomatoes, very aged cheddar.  NO SUBSTITUTIONS or OMISSIONS allowed.  If you don’t like it……go somewhere else for a mediocre burger.

One burger was not enough…..I had to order TWO.

There are some unique provisions at a shop in the rear of the restaurant.

 

Another BIRTHDAY LUNCH

The rather elegant “MEMBERS ONLY” private dining room……at the MET MUSEUM………is now open to the Public………..so we had lunch.

Fixed price menu is $50………that includes dessert.  Coffee……wine, tax and tip will round it up to $100……per person…..and you do get a pleasant view of Central Park.

Another BIRTHDAY Celebration

Margo is a celebrated fashion designer for Club Monaco

{Ralph Lauren}.

PROST!

SIMPLE SALAD STUFF was in order…………..

And I am trying to eat healthier grain breads……but a white flour bun just popped out of my oven!

Another BIRTHDAY LUNCH at LILLIE”S

I like Lillie’s  It is over the top……Victorian decor…….

..but I like that a lot.

BLT……over the top delicious

And the heirloom tomatoes salad….just perfect.

The interior of the restaurant…….looks a lot like my apartment……...
