PICTURES SPEAK A THOUSAND WORDS. PLEASE BE PATIENT AS IT DOWNLOADS.
From the city of the melting pot and beyond, this is my bird's eye view on food. As a foodie, my choice for discussion will always be food related; either through my own preparation; or restaurants that strike me for its: 1) taste, 2) presentation, 3) value or creativity. Food is beautiful. And sharing its beauty delights me. I hope that you enjoy and learn something new each time you view! Join me!
As they always say, something happens for a purpose.
After showing an apartment in the Lower East Side, it was convenient to take the subway to get tickets to a show at The Public Theater on Lafayette Street. And that's when I stumbled upon Lafayette. I had heard that the Chinese Brasserie which used to be in that site was going to leave. And I've read somewhere than Andrew Carmellini was opening a new restaurant in NoHo. So of course, I hurriedly picked up the ticket and darted to Lafayette for a quick late lunch.
This place is big and bright. I love the decor.
As you enter, on the right is the Bakery and Pastry shop where you can grab sweets and breads. In my case, first I ate and then grabbed extra calories to take home.
I sat at one of these smaller tables to have lunch.
The Bakery as you enter
I had a wonderful salad with a delicate dressing. It's made with frisee, and mache.
My main course which is really an appetizer are 4 large prawns with a nice light dip.
An array of pastries on your way out.
Anyone for a tart?
On the right are canelelle - one of my favorite pastry.
