Best thing you ate this week?

For me, it was the "20 Layer Crepes Cake Brulee" at Ayza.

                Ah yes.. I have been meaning to getting to that!

      2. The soba salad at Yama (Irving Place). It had a light, sweet peanut sauce and was tossed with chopped asparagus and cold pieces of shrimp. It really wasn't a salad but it was deelish.

        1. Farm cake and almond croissant at Cafe Angelique.
          Crack Pie at Momofuku Milk Bar.
          Uni panini at El Quinto Pino.
          Smoked mussels from Zabar's.
          Violet chocolate and champagne truffle from Pierre Marcolini.

          1. re: fdb

            All the pies and at Momo Milk Bar looked refrigerated and therefore cold. Doesn't that take away from the taste of the Crack Pie?

              Yes, it tasted cold but it was perfect for me with a cup of hot coffee.

          2. It is not this week, I ate it inJuly when I went to NY, but I will eat it next week because I am going back....the white gazpacho at Picholine....It is so fresh and summery and exquisite! It is worth just going to sit at the bar and have it with a glass of wine.
