[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.
