today was the day where calorie counting went out the window and we became "yes men". enjoying some of the oldest dishes and most popular and iconic dishes, today we really enjoyed the new york city experience. mainly focused in the west village, we enjoying mainly italian dishes with a side of architecture. in this case, the establishments and photos speak louder than words, so here goes.
we first enjoyed a slice of authentic italian pizza at joes before heading to o & co to sample hand-picked and pressed olive oil, a three cheese rice ball from faicco's italian specialities, the amazing cauliflower dish at palma (where we also got to see the private dining rooms of the really rich and famous), the classic eggplant rollatini at rafele's, chocolate cookies at the milk and cookies bakery, three different cheeses at murray's cheese shop (i'm in heaven) and a fresh cannoli from rococo's.
todays walking food tour was a real reprieve from the sub-zero winter winds that descended on manattan. with one more day in the big apple, tomorrow will be a busy day.
