Brooklyn in the Moonlight

So last friday I had the pleasure of meeting up with my friend in downtown brooklyn for dinner, wine, and of course girl gab time. I had worked that day prior to meeting her so good company, food, and wine were a must. I had not wanted to go all the way to brooklyn but I’m soo glad I had. The streets when walking to the restaurant was calm and peaceful compared to the hustle and bustle of time square and it def was a great change from the norm.

We looked around and my friend took us to Chez Oskar and it was a cute little parisan restaurant. Our waitress was nice and we were automatically given water and bread. We started off with pink vodka lemonade that was freshly squeezed and delicious. Than we shared an appetizer which was crab cake which was soo delicious and fresh that I craved more. I never was huge on crab cakes but this one was the best I ever had. For our entrees my friend had roasted chicken with potatoes while I had grilled hangar steak with potatoes and carmalized onions. They both were soo delicious. One bite into my steak was soo juicy and nicely seasoned. We drank pinot grigio with our meal which was a nice light balance. Lastly we had flourless cake with vanilla ice cream. The cake tasted almost like mousse and it was made to perfection.

This by far was the best meal I had in a while. What I loved most was just the nice calm ambiance and just delicious and filling cooked food. I’m already a fan of french food and I can’t wait to tackle these dishes myself. I definitely rate this as an amazing and worth checking out!

Let Them Eat Crumbs!

So I’m at work today and it is pure boredom! So I decided to write about my experience at Crumbs a bakery in Manhattan. Their famous items are their pretty large cupcakes that come in yummy flavors like fudge sundae and creme brulee. I was pretty excited and decided to go try out their cookies & cream cupcake. While I like the concept and the cupcake was pretty decent, I expected more. The frosting was hard and the cake was average. The only thing I really liked was their decor was like a lil cafe and their employees were all helpful and very nice. I will come back to maybe try a different item like a cookie or something else. So overall review, I give them a: Average style bakery. So my quest for my fave bakery in the city continues!
