We still have great weather in New York, and as long as the weather is good, I will take the opportunity to have dinner by the river. If you live in New York or plan to be in New York any time soon, here’s my top three places to eat, that you might want to visit, if you’re in the mood for dinner by the river in New York City.
Address: 70 South St, New York, NY 10005
Dinner at South Street Seaport is a lot of fun. I especially enjoy having lunch or dinner there when I have a party to attend at Pier 15. I line my stomach, while I enjoy the view – perfect.
The holiday season had me tied to the kitchen and my laptop. I had a wonderful time, experimenting with ingredients and reviving old recipes so that I could share them with you. Now I need to get out and see what New York City restaurants’ winter menus have to offer. Hopefully I’ll get some inspiration to develop a recipe or two.
I didn’t venture very far this week, I decided to check out what was new in Harlem – a taste of Harlem, so I visited three newly opened restaurants:
- Sexy Taco Dirty Cash, 161 Malcolm X Blvd, New York, NY 10026
- Row House, 2128 Frederick Douglass Blvd, New York, NY 10026
- Chaiwali, 274 Lenox Avenue, New York, NY 10027
All three opened their doors for business recently in the last couple of months.
I thought this weekend would be one where I would need to take shelter from the adverse weather conditions, but thankfully, hurricane Joaquin is not a direct threat to the US. Sadly, it has hit parts of the Bahamas, and my thoughts are with those struggling to cope with the hurricane’s effects.
The weather at the beginning of the week was great – sun-filled days in the seventies. But as the week moved along the temperature dropped and the sun was replaced with cloud and rain.
Unfortunately, I had to travel to Boston as the weather turned. I took the Delta Shuttle from La Guardia to Logan, and oh my, that was a bumpy ride. The flight crew warned us that we would have to stay in our seats for the entire flight and asked that we use the bathroom before we take off rather than during the flight. The flight attendant, sped down the aisle and offered us bagels, but who could eat?! We took of, everything was good at first until we hit turbulence. I prayed a little and squeezed my eyes shut and didn’t open them again until we were safely on the ground.
I was so glad to be on the ground that I felt compelled to take a pic to celebrate and share. You will notice that its difficult
to determine where the sky ends and the ground starts. Our flight did a great job in landing our plane in Boston safely.
My flight wasn’t too bad compared to others I spoke with some who were on a flight where passengers started to scream once they hit turbulence. Another group were almost on ground until their landing was aborted. Their plane was caught in the jet stream of another plane which had already landed. This caused the wings of their plane to dip rapidly, first on the left, then on the right. Yikes!
Let me preface this post by declaring that I am exhausted! I have attended so many events, parties and dinners this summer.
New York winters can be brutal as you know, so I make sure to get out and enjoy what the city has to offer during the warm months. The sun has really played its part this year, New York has had so many beautiful days and warm breezy evenings, so it has been a pleasure to saunter around the city having a bite here and a drink there, shaking my hips to the beat over there and socializing with folks here and there.Read More
