This month’s travel notes are on New York City. Not only is it brought to you by myself, but also by a super hip friend of mine Ivy Ackerman. Ivy always points me in the right direction when it comes to travelling. For those of you who love to travel, and are obsessed foodies like myself, be sure to bookmark ButterAndEggRoad.com…Membership begins early 2012!
From Jennifer Ferreira:
359 6th Avenue
Tertulia is a really fun tapas style Spanish gastropub. It has a old farm style look with wooden banquettes and rustic tables. Mullen, the chef is a stickler for seasonal ingredients which means most of his creations are daily specials. Go with a group of friends so you can try more of their dishes. Tertulia is not to be missed next time you’re in NYC (no reservations unless you’re with a group of six). Buen provecho!

All I have to say is the Sweet Potato & Miso Tortellini with fried rosemary, sage, arugula and parmesan was pretty f’ing good!!!
Daphne Guinness at FIT
7th Avenue at 27th Street, NYC
Daphne Guinness – one of the most stylish women in the world in my books – has an exhibition at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) Museum. Accessories and clothing from her personal collection are featured, plus films, videos and images of and by her. If you love fashion, you will definitely love this. A must see! Exhibit closes January 7th, 2012.
From Butter And Egg Road:
While on the Butter And Egg Road with Ivy, I discovered two more gems during her NYC Marathon Program – which put a spotlight on the Williamsburg neighbourhood in the borough of Brooklyn.
Dinner at Café De La Esquina
225 Wythe Avenue, Williamsburg
Café De La Esquina’s original iconic building dates back to 1952 and is a landmark within the Williamsburg neighborhood. The space includes refurbished original features as well as new, unique elements to create a casual atmosphere. The food was so delish! We celebrated my birthday with far too much food and Tequila. The evening ended with an incredible Mexican Wrestler cake (which takes 48 hours to make) that Ivy had special ordered! Thanks Ivy! Needless to say the B&E crew closed the place down.
Brunch at Fatty ‘Cue
91 South 6th Street, Williamsburg
Getting here was like running with bulls as I had to cross a major street to get to the resto during the NYC Marathon!
Fatty ‘Cue is a part of the Fatty Crew restaurants. Fatty ‘Cue works with local and humanely grown and raised products. Personally, I could not get enough of the ricotta hotcakes! Thankfully we had good weather so the girls and I walked it all off crossing the Williamsburg Bridge. Narrowly avoiding food coma.
