Delicious, though tiny, boiled egg & olive sandwich with a standard latte.
My assignment this week had me on 5th Avenue, which was nice because of all the (window) shopping I could do after work. However, finding an affordable and casual place for lunch within reasonable walking distance proved to be a challenge on the first day. A good friend of mine works nearby and suggested we explore the Plaza Food Hall. What first came to mind was Home Alone 2: Lost in New York quotes; I’m sure I’m not alone on this. For the record, I am appalled that the film was certified “rotten” at 24% on Rotten Tomatoes. The critics must have been sedated or something – the trailer alone is hilarious.
Anyway, the hotel is really beautiful and boasts an impressive food court. We ate at Luke’s Lobster which served the most delicious lobster roll I’ve ever tasted. My Boston born-and-raised boyfriend might not be happy with that statement but whatever. I went back again the next day for a simple breakfast (pictured above) and more of Luke’s for lunch. Here’s a peek at what I got to experience in a lunch hour’s time.
Luke’s Lobster – The Taste of Maine meal (half shrimp roll, half lobster roll, half crab roll).
Just a tiny portion of froyo toppings at YoArt.
Pink & black Christmas Angelica bag at J. Estina. This is the only US shop of the Korean based brand. Retails for 398,000 South Korean wans or $367 in US currency. So gorgeous.
These glitzy backpacks are why I entered the boutique.
If you ever get the chance to wander around there, do it. I hope you all have a great weekend.
