Apron Adventures in New York City

Luke and I just got back from a tasty trip to NYC, where we enjoyed several days of sightseeing, relaxing, and of course, eating with his parents and brother. Wanted to share a few of my favorite food memories, in photo form :)

Food Tour of Chelsea Market
Highly recommend this company - Foods of New York. Love getting a great mix of food/walking/cultural information - a great way to try a lot of food over 3 hours, and have fun while doing it!

Our tour guide showing the view from Highline Park - so cool!

They carried some of my favorite cheeses! Loved enjoying the Cabot Clothbound Cheddar on its own and then in a grilled cheese

The tea selection was amazing - I got a few to bring home :)

Smorgasburg in Brooklyn
I'd heard from several foodie friends that this is THE thing to do on the weekend. So true! It seems like there were around 100 vendors, all of them awesome local restaurants and artisans. We probably tasted 10 different places, so clearly I need to go back :)

We got the banh mi hot dog!

It might have been $7 for a small bar, but we bought some because it was THAT good

These came with a scallion cream cheese that was TO.DIE.FOR.

The Vermont Maple Lemonade was so refreshing!

Cauliflower and eggplant wontons with a curry aioli

Dan Dan noodles

I've been wanting to go here for ages! Unfortunately, we picked a CROWDED time to go (a Saturday at 5) so it was a bit of a madhouse. But, we had fun exploring, I cam home with lots of Italian goodies, and we had an AMAZING dinner at one of the spots inside, Manzo.

These beets came with a truffled goat cheese - yum!

I was determined to have an authentic NYC bagel, and my colleague recommended this place. SO GOOD! Unfortunately, this was a portion of the trip where I was sick, so I couldn't fully enjoy it :( Luke did, though!

Have you been to NYC? Where's your favorite place to eat?
