Top Chef Encounter

A New York Quickie

In Food Tripping, NYC by Daryl & Mindi Hirsch2 Comments

We have been to New York City many times. In fact, one of us (Mindi) lived in the Big Apple for most of the 90s. Even so, each visit is different because the city is such a dynamic place.

We recently visited NYC for a very short and busy trip. Short, as in way less than 24 hours. Busy because Daryl was working for much of the visit. We still managed to have fun and eat good food, i.e. bagels.

Since Daryl was working, we stayed at nicer digs than normal – The Standard Hotel. In addition to its trendy location right by the High Line in the meat packing district, the rooms are quite comfortable and have excellent city views.

After doing our own things that night (Daryl working / Mindi meeting up with family and then enjoying a glass of wine at Barbuto), we had a few hours in the morning to walk along the high line, walk through the Chelsea Market and grab bagels with nova at Murray’s. We had just enough time to drink coffee at Ninth Street Espresso, people watch and randomly meet Top Chef winner Richard Blais. Only in New York!

Philadelphia is just a couple hours away by car, bus and train. So we will be back – again and again and again.
