He has invested in a start-up restaurant called Uma Temakeria. It's basically a hand made sushi place - all fresh ingredients. First stop was there for lunch. I'm soooooooo not a sushi fan, but they had a rice bowl so I topped it with all fresh vegetables and a spicy mayonnaise sauce. This was so delicious! I am going to try to recreate this for a lunch at work.
After the meeting we had a bit of free time but not really any good amount of time to shop, so we went and strolled Fifth Avenue. Some of us went into Bergdorf Goodman and walked through the designer salons. It was actually fun dreaming about wearing really well made clothing. I saw a pair of shoes that I adored and if I had the money, these would be a contender for Little Helen's wedding. Aren't they fabulous?!!
Alas, they are Louboutin's and a bit out of my price range...
After our stroll, he treated us to dinner and drinks in Little Italy. This is the first thing you see when you walk into the skylight room at Il Cortile.
Dinner was good Italian food and lots of bread which we all enjoyed immensely. After dinner we went to a couple of bars for drinks. At this point it was getting late so I had a fancy coffee and went to water. I could tell it was going to be a late night and sure enough, I walked through the door of home at 1:50 am. Had to work on Thursday, which I managed but boy was I dragging! It was a different sort of NYC trip for me, but still enjoyable to be out of the office for the day.
