Sant Ambroeus

A friend of mine recommended Sant Ambroeus a couple of months ago – he said it’s one of his favorite spots for Italian food! Of course, because I have a mile-long list of places, I didn’t get around to visiting until this past weekend. I absolutely love the interior (Brian and I went to the one on Lafayette) and I spotted some work by Baron Von Fancy, Donald Robertson, & even Mr. Brainwash! The food is delicious – we got the Sant Ambroeus panini, Tagliatelle alla Bolognese, baskets upon baskets of bread (and endless refills of delicious olive oil to dip in), all accompanied with a refreshing glass of rose for me, and the Anguria cocktail for Brian.

Vandal

Very excited that Summer Fridays are back! My favorite thing to do after leaving work at 1 pm on Fridays is meeting up with Brian to walk around Manhattan and hunt down graffiti! So of course, when I heard about Vandal, I just HAD to go check it out.

Vandal is a restaurant that offers street food on it’s menu and street art on the walls. The entire front has two full walls of Shepard Fairey, the back has a full wall by Tristan Eaton, and all along the interior are framed artwork by the usual suspects including Space Invaders & Faile.

Yeti Tracks at Snowdays

I love shaved ice – it’s lighter than it’s cream counterpart and makes me all nostalgic because my grandma used to have one of those manual shaved ice machines. I got the Yeti Food: It’s Yeti Tracks shaved ice with bananas, waffles cones, & blueberry puree. Next time I’m getting the same thing but with mochi – it’s so good! Click through for more pics!

Seated Ballerina

Stopped by Rockefeller Center after work yesterday to see Jeff Koons’ giant Seated¬†Ballerina. The weather was so beautiful that if we didn’t have our little furball anxiously waiting for us at home, Brian and I¬†would have had dinner al fresco (with a nice glass of rose).

Squish Marshmallows

Somewhere before downing some donuts and after noshing on ice cream, Brian and I found the time to stop by Squish to sample some toasted marshmallows. The smore is delicious but I wish the waffle cone taco were dipped in Dark chocolate instead. Click through for more pics!
