Kelly the Culinarian: Oh What a Night!

Oh What a Night!

After checking into my hotel yesterday, I walked to roughly two miles to meet up with Erin at the hotel she was sharing with Kim. Kim mapped out a lovely walk, and the three of us hit up The High Line for a leisurely stroll.

Then, we took a walking tour of some cool neighborhoods. We checked out some residential areas along with a few places just teeming with students, tourists and diners. We had great weather, which certainly makes any outing better. 

We had a great dinner at Caffe Napoli in Little Italy. It was carbalicious and amazing. The focaccia they brought out as an appetizer was just to die for. It was fluffy, which is unlike any other I've tried. It was dusted with salt and liberally treated with rosemary, one of my favorite herbs. I had a super heavy pasta dish that really hit the spot, but we walked at least four miles together, so I think all the calories were negated.
I had a great time! It was fun to see Erin again and finally meet Kim in person. And if it wasn't for Kim's excellent planning, I wouldn't have seen nearly as much of the city as we ended up touring. Thank you, ladies, for letting me crash your vacation! Now it's off to another day seeing the Big Apple.

So happy we got to meet up! Thanks for going along with me and my crazy planning :) What a perfect dinner in Little Italy. I will remember that night forever! I had a blast chatting with you two! Especially after I had some wine and finally chilled out after my crazy work day :)
