Things are getting hectic with the move but I still had some time to run some errands. During those errands, I passed by Russ & Daughters which is one of the best places in NYC hands down. Great fish, bagels, dried fruit, chocolates. Essentially everything you need to throw a brunch and to snack.
I also passed by laboratorio del gelatio. I wasn't going to stop but then I remembered that I am moving and there won't be another time in a while. I ordered the turkish fig with yogurt flavored gelato.
I walked by Katz's on Houston and then crossed over to 1st St where I passed Prune. I've been there but I enjoyed reading Gabrielle Hamilton's book more than I liked eating her food. I still loved the cafe feel of the restaurant and the doors were thrown open for the gorgeous day.
I made the deliberate turn on 2nd St to go to John Derian's stores. I love both stores and have bought many things from them. It's also where I once saw Aziz Ansari which made me so happy.
