Look! It’s fall Now that I’ve moved away from the island of eternal summer, I’m quite excited to experience all four seasons!
The other morning, I had a warm slice of pizza zucchini from Grandaisy Bakery on Sullivan Street. Shredded zucchini and a light hand of gruyere cheese on the thinnest of crusts – it’s hard to imagine that something so simple and basic, could be this delicious! (and beautiful!) Of course, the hallmark of this bakery is the pizza bianca, the one item you must, must, must get if you happen to pop in right when it comes out of the oven.
It was such a nice day that I wandered around Soho and West Village for a while, going nowhere in particular, but enjoying the quiet morning very much (I’ve learned to better appreciate the freedom of weekends after starting work, hehe). I came across my favourite falafel place in the city, Taim, and purchased a date-banana-lime smoothie. I sat on the empty bench outside and sipped away, the creamy, date-speckled drink going down smooth, the lime was so light as to nearly be missed, but there was no arguing that this was a darn good, honest smoothie. Naturally sweet, perhaps a bit too icy, but straightforward, yet unique. I doubt there’s many places in this city that blend dates into their smoothies!
That’s it for this post – hope you’re all having a good week!
