Cafe Grumpy and Spot Dessert Bar

Food shots:

Espresso from Cafe Grumpy in Chelsea.  Mellow.

 

Dessert from the Spot Dessert Bar in the East Village.  This was the Yuzu Eskimo – Blackberries, raspberry foam, chocolate pearls, oreo soil and chocolate ganache.

It was a neat combination of flavors.  The most interesting was the Yuzu - a Japanese citrus fruit.  It had a very interesting tart herbal flavor.  The raspberry foam was very tart as well and predictably light.  The oreo “soil” was delicious as I love oreo cookies and the chocolate was yummy as well.

 

I can’t remember what my friend Diane got.  I think this was the White Miso Semifreddo with berries, olive oil, and raspberry sorbet with an almond tuile.

running from the thunderstorm

I happened to be on the high line when a thunderstorm hit.  scary clouds loomed over hoboken until suddenly the temperature dropped 20 degrees and the full-on thunderstorm hit.

 

 

 

 

I wandered chelsea a bit.

 

 

 

 

I saw this sad spectacle of a bike.  everything had been stripped except for the crankset, saddle, and brake posts.  is this proof that using an old chain to secure your saddle works?

 

 

 

 

 I hopped back on the high line.
