Best parts

Voici some pics from my recent trip to NYC. Of course the main purpose of the visit was to attend the Fancy Food Show, but my colleagues and I managed to get out a bit during the off-hours and enjoy the city. Some of the best parts . . .

Staying at the Algonquin Hotel & finding this picture of Dorothy Parker in a stairwell. She is rocking an amazing beaded lariat-style sautoir.

The Fage yogurt booth at the food show. Yes, those are samples.

Having breakfast at The City Bakery (two days in a row!) Their marshmallow mobiles were pretty outstanding. And the pretzel croissants? I brought seven back to Michigan with me. The TSA guy said "Wowzers" when my backpack went through the security scanner.

The window display of desserts at Once Upon a Tart.

Ordering a little vial of my favorite perfume (it was mixed before my eyes by a lady named Millicent) at Le Labo. They also had a card catalog/dresser thingy in there that was unreal.

Wearing a pretty dress and a pretty necklace out to dinner one night. My friends were kind enough to snap a picture of me and my 20s necklace in Time's Square.

Le Labo looks like heaven, which I had gone there. As does the hotel and food fair. Can I have your trip?

oh man. I would love to travel with you. Pretzel croissants?!

Thanks for the Montreal recs! I was having coffee with two people yesterday who wanted to know what I was going to do when I was there. When I told them the plan was eating, they just stared at me :)I know you'd understand.

Oh my! I am so again, food show, totally my thing! Fage has saved my life, I now eat breakfast almost daily and Once upon a tart is one of my favorites! I use their cookbook as inspiration for my breakfast breads basket on Sunday at the restaurant. Happy to see that you had such a great trip!
