Went to happy hour at The Mermaid Oyster Bar in the East Village. Between my mom and I, we ate a total of four dozen oysters! If it were ever possible to die from over-oyster consumption, this would’ve been it.
Had a little lunch at Otto. Food was reasonably priced, pretty good but nothing to phone home about. We had two pizze: one with shaved fennel and the other with potato and anchovy; and two pastas: agnolotti with meyer lemon and spaghetti and meatballs.
Back again to one of my favorite places in the world: Eataly. It literally might be everything I love in one building. The only problem is, it’s 1,000 miles away. But, Chicago will be blessed by its presence this upcoming summer/fall!! Can’t wait!
