One of the rewards for hauling myself to work in NYC: Dine Around Downtown.
This was an outdoor food fair, which took place the other day at Chase Plaza. But unlike the typical street fair, this event was sponsored by some of the finest restaurants in lower Manhattan. Each participant had a small tent offering incredible food at reasonable prices.
I had pepperoni pizza from Adrienne ' s Pizzabar and incredible grilled lamb chops with cumin - citrus sauce from Harry ' s Cafe and Steak. Wanted to try the crab mac and cheese from Bobby Van's Steakhouse, but the line was too long. The shrimp and grits from Route 66 Smokehouse also sounded intriguing.
Ultimately I chose to get some dessert to bring back to the office. Incredible, rich French pastry from Financier Pattiserie. Yummy.
