Last weekend, my husband and I had the opportunity to attend a friend’s wedding in New York City. We jumped at the chance to celebrate a wonderful couple and decided to spend a couple extra days there exploring the city.
Ready to go!
Airport waiting game.
I always like getting to the airport super early because I’m afraid of missing my flight! You never know how long security will take these days. Of course we got through everything in like five minutes and had two hours to kill at our gate. Good thing I had this amazing book to keep me entertained! Definitely recommend it.
When we landed we were starving, so our first stop was dinner at Tavern on the Green. This place was AH-MAZ-INGGG. Seriously. Just so good. The food was excellent, but the ambiance was my favorite part. The restaurant had glass walls on one side that overlooked Central Park. There were lights and candles everywhere that created a romantic glow. It was an experience I’ll never forget.
Delicious roasted chicken.
After dinner we headed to get dessert at Viniero’s Pasticcery. Viniero’s is an Italian bakery that’s been around since 1894!
They had like 100 different pastries to chose from. But of course I went with something chocolate. And the husband did too. What can I say? We love chocolate.
The next morning we headed to The High Line. If you think this is just another park, you would be mistaken. It’s a mile and a half of elevated park on an old railroad track. It was so peaceful and beautiful up there. There were flowers everywhere and it was sooo clean compared to the streets of New York! (One of the only things I hated about NYC was the trash everywhere and stinky smells). It felt like a little escape from the city.
There were a lot of pretty murals along the way.
Yummy peaches & cream popsicle from a stand at the end of The High Line.
Enjoying the beautiful view.
Next up was brunch at Sarabeth’s. I heard great things about this place and was anxious to try it.
It did not disappoint! We sat by the window and it was so fun watching people stroll down Park Avenue while I ate my amazing breakfast. (People-watching is seriously one of my favorite things to do and another reason why I don’t mind getting to the airport early because that’s the absolute best place to do it ;D)
My absolutely amazing French toast! It tasted like donuts…yum.
And I will leave you with this. One of my favorite murals we found while walking around Chelsea.
Stay tuned…there’s much more to come!
