A wonderfully relaxing evening.

It was an incredibly busy and stressful week, so by the time I took the

train down to New York City today, I was in some definite need for some

pampering. So first, a visit to [

John Allan’s]1, for the full service treatment (a scalp massage, hair cut and styled, a hot

towel treatment, a manicure, and a shoe shining). Then Stacey and I

went to Aquavit.

The last time we had gone to Aquavit was for my birthday, where we had

the 17 course “tiny bites” tasting menu. We were stuffed to the gills

after that, so this time, we opted for the 7 course chef’s tasting

menu. It was supposedly a smaller amount of food, but we were still rolling

out the door by the time we were done.

The food there was incredible. Unfortunately, I didn’t take notes, so

I can’t do the [

]3 porn descriptions that does so well. But

some of the dishes that stood out in mind included:

There were a lot more very yummy dishes, but unfortunately I can’t

remember them all. I guess next time I’m going to have to bring a

notepad along and take notes….
