Back from NYC

[view from our hotel room window]
by J J Cohen

The Cohen kids had their spring break last week. Luxury bus tickets between DC and NYC are dirt cheap, hotels in the city have empty rooms, we have more friends in New York than we could possibly see in two weeks let alone four days ... and so we are just back from a short family jaunt. I poked my head into this, and ate -- among other things -- spanakopita, dosa with coconut chutney (at Tiffin Wallah: thanks, Irina!), tamales de huitlacoche (at Hell's Kitchen, located in ... Hell's Kitchen), Penang curry, muffins, bagels, stacks of black and white cookies, feta and spinach omelette at a 24 hour diner, pizza with roasted broccoli rabe ... and on and on. And on.

More later, but I am happy to be home. Because gaining three hundred pounds was quite enough, thank you.

Yay! I'm glad you liked it! I led a motley group of conference goers to Tiffin Wallah for a quick Friday buffet lunch ($7, and delicious), and there were no complaints. Just thinking about it makes me hungry all over again though.

Am still recovering from the Glorious Glossing though...

Thank you so much for coming to Glorious Glossing! It was so delightful to see you, and so superb of you to make time for seeing us in your New York adventure.

I also wanted to say that glossing was Glorious indeed--thanks especially to Nicola Masciandaro and Jesús Rodríguez Velasco, the extraordinary producers and hosts. . .
