Last weekend Van and I headed to NYC to celebrate my birthday. We stayed in a clean and kind-of funky hotel in China Town and saw some friends, an amazing theater performance and ate some delicious food.
My favorite restaurant on this trip was Mario Batali's Babbo in the West Village. We didn't have reservations, but arrived at the restaurant right when it opened and were seated within 15 minutes. I recommend that tactic- the bar is fun too.
Anyways, I ordered an arugula salad...It was HUGE. Almost a joke. So big, but delicious none the less.
And as my main course, I chose the beef-cheek ravioli. Definitely the best food choice of the night. Van ate most of mine. Ha. But seriously, literally probably the best pasta that I have ever eaten in my life. And I've had a lot of pasta. You can't really beat handmade pasta, filled with beef-cheeks. :)
Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes. As I always say, I don't mind getting older- I just don't want to look any older. Ha. :) Universe, can we make some kind of a deal and make this happen? Please.
The countdown to 12.12.12 begins, someone recently pointed out that Dec. 12th, 2012 is supposed to be the last day on earth. Let's go out with a bang then, shall we?
Peace, love and happy holidays!
