Let’s Hear it for New York

A couple of weeks ago, Rob and I woke up and decided to go to New York.  After booking last minute transportation through Vamoose and a hotel room through Tablet, we were off!  We literally had no plans when we arrived which was nice because we really got to explore the city.  Some of our favorite stops included:

  • The Mansfield Hotel – A cute, historic boutique hotel right in the heart of Midtown.  My favorite part was their library room which had many leather bound books and smelled of rich mahogany.
  • 53rd and 6th Halal Cart – Even though there are tons of halal carts in the city, this one in particular strikes a chord in the hearts of many.  You can’t go wrong with their chicken and rice platter with their special white sauce!  (I skipped out on the sauce because of my condiment fear but Rob can vouch for it’s deliciousness).
  • Brasserie Les Halles – I’m a huge Anthony Bourdain fan so I made sure to drop by for some wine, escargot and banana flambe.  We were able to walk in with “No Reservations”…zing!
  •  Joe’s Shanghai – We didn’t get the opportunity to shuck it over to Chinatown but luckily Joe’s Shanghai had a Midtown outpost so we could get a taste of their famous soup dumplings.
  • Central Park – I’ve been to NY many times but I never took the opportunity to take a leisurely walk through Central Park.  We saw many famous sites along the way such as Strawberry Fields and the sailboat pond where Jenny Humphrey became a drug mule on Gossip Girl.
  •  Toys R Us – I only went in because Rob wanted to check out their action figure collection but after wandering around for a few minutes I became absolutely enthralled with their life size Barbie house and gigantic candy section.
  • Times Square Forever 21 – Open till 2am every day this store was able to fill all my impulse buying needs.
