Queens, New York
Best meal I ever ate:
A steak dinner at Peter Luger's and a pasta dinner at Carmine's - both in New York, with friends from work; A salad & seafood lunch with parents at the Restaurant at the Getty Center in Los Angeles when we were starving after a long trip; A solo tasting menu feast at Rasa Samudra in London.
My current drink of choice:
San Pellegrino Pompelmo, Birch Cold Brew Iced Coffee, Starbuck's Blonde Roast
My favorite comfort food:
A plain slice of thin-crust pizza; A juicy cheeseburger with sliced raw onions; A small plate of stuffed grape leaves soaked in olive oil & squeezed lemon; Chipotle's Steak Fajita Burrito; A slice of pie filled with firm & crisp & tart & not-too-sweet apple slices (perhaps from Briermere Farms) paired with coffee; Eataly's Pistachio Gelato; anything from Doughnut Plant.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Gramercy Tavern, Maialino, Peter Luger's, Wolfgang's, Carmine's (Upper West Side), Chola, Devi, Uncle Nick's, Carnegie Deli.
