NYC eats.

I was in New York last week for work, and had the pleasure of enjoying some delicious food and visiting a girlfriend (come home!) in between meetings, train rides and necessary coffee runs. Although I consider myself a proud “West Coast girl,” this quick and enjoyable trip makes me reconsider the preconceived ideas I’ve held about the seemingly harsh lifestyle of living on the East Coast. It was hot, but much hotter in Seattle, and it was crowded, but everything was much more efficient than Seattle. Hmm. I’m hardly converted, but I wouldn’t mind visiting again. soon.
