Escargot in garlic butter

Escargot in garlic butter, originally uploaded by Jenbolaya.

The hyped up Breslin Bar had a TWO hour wait for a table and probably another TWO hour wait for food after that, so we decided to head to Les Halles, which is close enough and had a shorter waiting time. This decision suited me because I wasn't expecting much from the Breslin. Serving high fat content pork products doesn't make a good restaurant. At Les Halles, we ordered escargot in garlic butter sauce, mushroom puff pastry, hangar steak, pork loin, and braised beef. For dessert, we had creme brulee, chocolate soufflé, and apple pastry and it was ALL DELICIOUS!!

My faves were escargot (love that garlic butter), braised beef, and the creme brulee.

Knits and Eats

Now that I'm stuck home in the frigid, not-safe-to-be-outside-without-a-down-blanket-wrapped-around-me-weather, I have nothing to do but knit and eat and take pictures of the two.

iKnit (actually mom knit, iCrochet'd something but it was awful enough she took it apart)
Crochet hat

iEat (I ate)
Breakfast today

Orange you yummy?

Still haven't gone anywhere on my list to eat yet, but hoping to visit Breslin tonight for their fatty pork products! Hooray for fatty pork products!

Restaurant week and more!!

Restaurant week is here again! With the super long list of places I've never been able to afford, it's not an easy decision to make. There's David Boulud's empire of resturants, Brasserie, Morimoto, and so on and so forth. There's Apiary, which is fairly new in town, but Chef Scott Bryan is supposedly down to earth and just simply a great chef. How is one supposed to choose? "Luckily", Mik0 suggested a steakhouse. A steakhouse?? Yes. So we're going to a steakhouse.

Here's a list of restaurants and eateries I will have to stop by after my release from this jail.

- Bierkraft
- One Girl Cookies
- Ronnybrook Farm Dairy
- Otto
- L'Arte del Gelato
- Milk and Cookies
- How Sweet It Is
- Jacques Torres
- The Chocolate Room

Ok, so they're all ice cream sandwich places. I deserve the treat!
