NEW YORK, NEW YORK: #LABORDAYWEEKEND - PART III/IV
Our Sunday starts with a light walk around the Central Park. We went to Strawberry Fields and stayed there hanging out for a while.
After, the destination was the Chelsea Market, another amazing place. Full of charming stores, like a spice and food market. Go there and delight yourself with the groceries.
From there, we went through The High Line and arrived at the Meatpacking District, to lunch at the Catch. A super modern restaurant in the neighborhood. I loved it! The place is cool, the mood has already begun in the elevator, which is dark and plays lounge. The decor is clean, fashion and has a very nice rooftop. Our plates were wonderful. Andrei chose a grilled spice tuna. I did a light and ordered a MahiMahi (kind of fish) delicious! Andrei’s mom had a chicken breast and her friend chose an entrecot. All very well presented and tasty! With special emphasis to the french fries with parmesan and truffle oil! Eating praying!! All of this with a very good beer! Catch-21 Ninth Ave.
At night, we had dinner with a group of Brazilians who was there to the US Open, by AnaTenis - a company with an enormous experience in organizing trips to Grand Slams by the world - after I'll do a post about it. So, we went to the legendary Carmine's.
Carmine's is a restaurant very traditional in New York. You need go there and live this experience. Famous for its generous-not to mention Giants-portions and make guests feel in a typical Italian family. We delighted with Penne a la Vodka, Veal Marsala and a traditional Lasagna. All very nice and watered by two good Chiantis. For the grand finale a dessert called Titanic and digestive sambucas. Carmine’s - 200 W 44th st - Times Square, NY
