Last weekend, I ventured out into the city on a gorgeous day to celebrate my friend L's 30th birthday and to have dinner with D. I decided to drive, since the weather was amazing and mid-afternoon traffic on a Saturday is virtually non-existent. I managed to find metered parking near Cooper Union and wandered down to meet my friends.
Lionsbeerstore, which is a really nice little bar on the LES. The walls opened up completely so we got to enjoy the amazing breeze and sunshine, the beer selection was pretty decent, and the food was incredible.
Noreetuh to meet D. We both decided to pick off of the prix-fixe menu and shared some awesome dishes. We started with the silken tofu with uni and shiitake. The uni was kind of fishy (though, I tend to always find sea urchin a little fishy) but the tofu was really good. It lived up to its name in its silkiness and the shiitake was really good.
