And offcourse I made a trip downtown to Century 21 ( in addition to Carter going to his beloved coin store) but we also made a trip to one of Mum and I's favourite foodie places in NYC - Eataly. It is a fabulous Italian market, complete with six resturants/cafes including the essential NY roof top. You can buy fish, baking pans, coffee and the most devine desserts! It was busy busy as it was sunday brunch time therefore got a takeaway cake for a before lunch treat.
If you go to NYC its def worth a visit: 200 5th Ave, NYC
or the website: www.eatalyny.com
Having eaten at Eataly before and not wanting to brave the crowds due to our brief visit, we found just outside Madison Sq Eats (a temporary market set up on i guess you would call it a road island/footpath).
Carter had some stew and some home brew beer (from Brooklyn). "Guy food". I had my Eataly cake and a banana and peanut butter marshmallow (which I thought would be awful but was surprisingly good).
Note: photo is of half eaten marshmallow which has crunch bits around it mmm yumm
