Seasonal Desserts from Bouchon Bakery

I know those of you who have been reading my blog for a while are probably getting weary of me due to the fact that every week I’m bound to write something about Bouchon. Well, at least it’s all about desserts. Yeess…the sugary goodness that Bouchon actually excel in most parts (the exclusion is the disappointing French macarons). Since this is about their seasonal stuff, let’s start cracking. With Easter and Passover coming in less than two weeks, Bouchon has created seasonal menus for both holidays, if you seen their menus near the registers recently, you know what I’m talking..

Madness at Shake Shack

Today is too gorgeous to not eat out in an open space. It’s 72 degrees Fahrenheit, warm, and sunny…so why not? Since I have no clue what restaurants actually has good food and a nice outdoor seating, I went back to Shake Shack. I know I went here last week but I changed my order a bit to expand my horizons on their menu. When I got here at 11:05 A.M., there’s already a line formed unlike last week. The line is actually about halfway to the end of the block on Madison Avenue and 28th Street. It’s not terrible..

So, here’s the chocolates… Side view of box Chocs protected with a plastic cover Chocolates plated (more…)

I'm Finally at Shake Shack

I think I’m one of the last few food bloggers and New Yorkers who ate here at Shake Shack for the first time (it’s shameful, I know). It always made me wonder what’s all the hoopla’s about whenever this place open every single year and now, I know what it’s all about. It’s about 11:35 AM when I arrived to Shake Shack and I’m starving. Thankfully there was no line, since it’s a bit chilly and it’s cloudy out. Only a local businesswoman ahead of me, not that legendary line that forces one to wait for hours on end to..
