Morning coffee and bagels
My parents came to visit and I treated them to brunch at Community. The food is delicious and the portions are HUGE. Most importantly, the latte art is on point.
Bettolona hands down has the best pizza. I think I’ve found a NYC replacement for Pizzeria Paradiso.
For my birthday, we went to the recently renovated Pisticci Italian restaurant. You really can’t go wrong with spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread, and tiramisu. This place has live music every Sunday night and fun drinks named after strong female character such as Piper Chapman and Sookie Stackhouse, and it’s surprisingly affordable. Definitely going back.
I love that Starbucks gives you free drinks on your birthday. So what if they butcher my name every time.
My quest for the best chocolate chip cookie is finally over. Insomnia Cookies have the best soft gooey warm cookies I’ve ever had. They also make ice cream sandwiches with their cookies which I’d love to try sometime.
We always walk by this little ramen shop called Jin Ramen and the line is out the door. We finally decided to try it out and were blown away by the food. I ordered a chicken rice bowl that came with eggs, scallions, and slices of ginger. So good. I can tell why this place is so popular!
We went to the super cute restaurant, Kitchenette for brunch before going to a Columbia vs Fordham football game. The service was painfully slow and I’m not quite sure the food was worth the wait. The best part of this meal was the big fluffy biscuit.
