the birthday evening was FABULOUS!!!
we celebrated with brad, a high school friend, over drinks and dinner at the cook shop in chelsea! the restaurant came highly recommended by a fellow new york dog mother, specifically due to outdoor dog friendly seating!
the food was delicious, and the wait staff was courteous!
for my dish, i combined two items.
1. Vegetable salad: sweet corn, cauliflower, fennel, carrots, radish, cucumber, lemon, mint
+ ADD THE SCALLOPS FROM THE FOLLOWING, HOLD EVERYTHING ELSE:
2. Hand Shucked Sea Scallops celery root puree, curried chickpeas, spinach
+ SPECIAL REQUEST: NO BUTTER, NO OIL, EVERYTHING STEAMED OR GRILLED.
my extreme compliments to the chef!
and to the bartender. 😉
and to my friend brad. gwendolyn and i haven’t enjoyed dining with another non-sister human being like that, in a damn long time! he is definitely the coolest person from my high school graduating class, and i can’t wait to move here, so that we can dine together again!
happy birthday, gwendolyn!
