WHEN IN DOUBT FOOD
I don’t really blog meals. Not because I have anything against it. I just leave it to others. And frankly it’s very hard to get good photos of food. And I doubt that people really care what we eat. But I have gone many days without blogging. I have been deep into book writing and trying to build up the other website.
And is there anything more boring that a whining, excuse making blogger? No. There is not. But this is the truth, it’s 11:01. I want to go to bed. So this is my blog.
Tonight we went to Brooklyn to have dinner with our friends Amanda Hesser, the food maven and genius behind the BEST food website Food52, and her husband the talented New Yorker writer Tad Friend.
We got lost. We didn’t get really lost,. We got off at the wrong subway stop. But this was indeed a blessing as it was the photo op of the night.
We eventually made it to Nightingale 9, a trendy, new Viet Namese place in Carroll Gardens. It went something like this.
New York from the wrong subway stop in Brooklyn.
Sunset towards NY. Somewhere over there if you look really carefully, you will see the Statue of Liberty. You do!
“Amanda and Tad we are running late. G and T.”
Better late than never.
We started with curried pop corn. I told you I’m not that good at this.
I liked the way they stuck the condiments on the table. Amanda and I discussed condiments during dinner.
Glenn ordered this. It might have been the best thing, a shredded chicken salad. They said the animals we ate were humanely treated. Don’t know how you shred someone humanely.
This was a Viet Namese tomato salad
Little baby quails. I did not eat them. I do not eat anything that has “little baby” as part of the description.
Amanda ordered these, they were like mini pork tacos. The menu was very pork heavy.
It was all clearly a enjoyed.
These were very good, ice pops. The coffee was the best. They dipped it in shredded chocolate. No little baby anythings involved.
