So, is it cool with you guys if I give up eating for the month of April?
You’ll see why when I post my dinner pictures from last night. I may never be hungry again.
Yesterday was one of those days where I had everything planned out:
I woke up and wrote a little gossip and nightlife stuff, then shipped off for what was supposed to be a short meeting with a new client. Afterward I was planning on going for a run, heading home, eating lunch, changing, grabbing my camera and heading to a press dinner. Well that short meeting turned out to be 5 hours long and my lunch break turned out to be a Luna Bar between sentences. Luckily, I had grabbed my running shoes before I left, and dipped into a gym by the office for a quick run and shower before I headed to dinner.
I was starving when I got there. When I left I was convinced that my digestive tract was going to break up with me. I haven’t been this full since my 9-course meal at the Four Seasons.
Whole wheat bagel thin, egg, lite cheese, Trader Joe’s veggie sausage and hot sauce
I was totally psyched to find this at the bottom of my bag. I knew I hid protein bars in my purse for a reason.
Okay, so technically I was there to test out the bar, as that’s my current beat, but there was a whole dinner that came after cocktail hour. I do love me some food. The restaurant is called Pier 9, and opened in the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan last month. It’s primarily a seafood restaurant, and it is amazing. I definitely recommend it to you NYC folk. If you’re a martini fan you must try the By Land Martini which has truffle brine and blue cheese stuffed olives. My absolute favorite part of the meal!
There was a lot of food, I didn’t eat all of it, but I tasted most of it and it was phenomenal.
Unfortunately I didn’t get to go home to get my camera, so these were all taken on my phone.
