I love waking up in New York City. Can I just move here already?
Actually, I don’t think Mal and Murphy would be too happy if I moved NYC. (Please see Murphy’s pissed off face for their likely reaction).
The Smith is a casual American Brasserie with menus that feature a selection of bistro dishes, including fried calamari, mussels, mac & cheese, steak, and hand cut fries. The menu was pretty awesome””lots of comfort food, and I wanted to try almost everything on it. Oh, and the dessert menu included classic Birthday Cake””yellow cake with fudge frosting and vanilla ice cream. Um, yea. I already want to go back.
Naturally, the evening started with a round of drinks. After sitting on a train all day and semi-stressing about appearing on national television, I needed a glass of wine.
To start, the table shared an order of Hot Potato Chips with blue cheese fondue, which were incredibly addicting. I only planned to eat a few, but after having a taste, I was scooping up the cheese at the bottom of the bowl. Holy yum.
For my entrÃ©e, I ordered the Roasted Tomato Soup with a side of Brussels sprouts. Before we were seated, Dori mentioned that the Roasted Tomato Soup was really delicious. As soon as she said this, the thought of tomato soup was in my head, and I knew exactly what I wanted to order for dinner. It was as delicious as expected””thick, creamy, and loaded with melted cheese and a few croutons. The Brussels sprouts were great too. They were covered in butter/oil and sea salt, so, of course, they were flavorful and delicious.
For breakfast, Theodora and I went to Starbucks to grab coffee. I ordered a soy milk misto. To eat, I whipped up a bowl of oatmeal with banana, cinnamon, and sunflower butter. It was an epic bowl of oats.
Time to get ready for my television debut! AHHHH! Wish me luck!
