Foodie wasteland/UWS, NYC
Best meal I ever ate:
北京烤鸭 在 全聚德！ (Beijing Roast Duck at QuanJuDe) In the US -- can't pick one but wd~50 for my birthday was fabulous.
My current drink of choice:
Current: mojitos, even though I'm a bartender who HATES to make them. Always: The proper margarita on the rocks (former mex. restaurant bartender here) or vodka/soda with lime
I really wish I could:
make a Baked Alaska that rivals my grandmother's
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
I host cocktail parties much more often...
My favorite comfort food:
ice cream - Cones Gelato on Bleecker, SO good
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
break the bank -- Four Seasons (restaurant, not hotel), Neighborhood -- 'cesca or Kefi, Asian -- Momofuku, Pizza -- Grimaldi's
My most tattered cookbooks:
Does epicurious.com count?? "Raising the Bar" (cocktails), Silver Palate, How to be a Domestic Goddess (Nigella), a Hershey's cookbook
