Part two of our little get away was spent in New York City. That city is probably one of my favorite places next to San Francisco. The skyline, restaurants, boutiques…I love it all. We arrived Thursday morning ready to see everything New York had to offer. To our surprise, we scored tickets to see The Letterman Show that afternoon. We weren’t expecting to see Letterman nor are we “die-hard” fans, but it was actually pretty fun! I loved getting to see behind the scenes and being a part of a live audience. I also got to see one of my favorite actors, Bryan Cranston…I am a huge Breaking Bad fan.
Friday was our true full day in the city and we were determined to see as much as possible. We started out early and walked from our hotel to breakfast where we fueled ourselves with coffee and omelets at Sarabeths’s before heading to Central Park. Central Park South is one of my favorite areas. It has so many quaint restaurants nestled on the street overlooking the park. It also is right off 5th Avenue so that is always a plus. Later that night we enjoyed The Lion King on Broadway. It was awesome!
Our favorite eats included Sarabeth’s for brunch, Shake Shack for a late night shake, Juniors, Amarone (the best pasta), and Magnolia Bakery. When we weren’t eating, we spent our time visiting the Natural History Museum, sipping coffee in the Plaza (A limousine and a cheese pizza anyone?), and walking around Times Square. Until next time, New York!
