Most Embarrassing Meal You Have Had Lately

You know mom wouldn't be happy if she knew you called that a meal. But we're busy people nowadays!
Most recently mine was nearly half of that tumeric/hazelnut loaf from Maison Kayser and a double macchiato for lunch...I may have called a half pint of talenti's blood orange sorbet breakfast one morning......

  1. I am sorry. I was just sitting here daydreaming about how delicious your "bad" meals sound. Count me in!

        If you're already there might as well pick up a few olive buns (entire kalamatas!) and a pistachio brioche.....

            I spoke with one of the Madison Ave. employees (a nice Filipina), and she mentioned that two more Royce were in the works for NY, Bryant Park and Bleecker St. Maybe I misheard and Battery Park is the 2nd?

            Didn't realize they both opened already, but they're quality places to get samples from.

              As far as I know the Battery Park one has been open since at least August.

                Bryant park location is open too i believe...i wasn't too crazy about Royce chocolate.

                  Total brain lock on my part. Meant Bryant Park (not Battery Park). Apologies all around.

          2. first thing that comes to mind is the fried chicken and waffle sliders with cheddar and bacon in jalapeno maple syrup at Pork Slope. the most shameful part is not the dish itself, but that it's served as an appetizer. i followed it with a brisket sandwich and a side of mac and cheese, along with a beer or two. not sure if the clock had struck noon when we first sat down.
