New York City Eateries
February 1, 2013
Quite a few things on my New York “To-Do” List involved food — tasting hot dogs from a street stand, eating a bagel for breakfast, finding the best pizza slice and an authentic New York cheesecake. My husband and I gleefully worked our way down the list, and sampled more than a few hot dogs and pizza slices.
New York City has an overwhelming number of eateries. I was thankful that my niece, who lives in the East Village, knew some terrific ethnic places just steps away from her apartment. We ate one dinner at the Hummus Place and another at a Japanese curry shop. The curry shop was a narrow space, with just room for one long counter. Patrons hung their coats and bags on hooks on the wall behind them or on hooks under the counter. You had to squeeze behind a long line of seated customers to get to thee bathroom at the back. And the place was hopping! We had the best bagel I’ve ever eaten at another East Village spot.
Here in Seattle I prepare and eat most of my meals at home. If I lived in New York, the temptation to eat out all the time would be irresistible.
