    Enlightened Movie Night

    My brother took advantage of the ShopRite sale on Enlightened Ice Cream, $1.99/pint with a minimum purchase of 5 pints. When I visited him this weekend I sampled the Butter Pecan, French Toast and Movie Night. The most unique, original, and intriguing of the bunch was Movie Night. For those who don’t know, Enlightened is an ice cream maker and bills their product as “a high protein ice cream that tastes as great”. Let’s be honest, at 90 calories per serving and 360 calories in the entire pint this has the potential of being a relatively guilt free, kill it in one sitting kinda ice cream. Movie Night is “Popcorn…

    Waffles @ Trace

    As I mentioned in a previous post my wife and I were in San Francisco recently. We stayed at the W Hotel which houses a restaurant named Trace. I explored the menu every day of our stay. ūüôā On the first day I headed down to Trace dressed in sweat pants and a baseball cap only to discover that I was woefully underdressed. It turns out that Trace is a destination restaurant, even for breakfast. The dining room was decorated nicely and thankfully no one but me seemed to care how I was dressed. After reading through the menu I ordered the¬†Vanilla Waffles. When my breakfast arrived the presentation was…

    Strawberry Mille Crêpes @ Lady M

    My wife and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary this week. For dessert I brought home the¬†Strawberry Mille Cr√™pe and Flourless Chocolate Cake from Lady M. Lady M is a bakery whose mission is to bring the unique flavors of Japanese desserts to America. Their signature dessert is the cr√™pe cake which is made with no less than twenty layers of lacy thin crepes, whisper light pastry cream and a golden caramelized top. I’ve eaten the¬†Mille Cr√™pes and the Chocolate¬†Mille Cr√™pes before, both are outstanding and Highly Recommended. Since my wife likes strawberry shortcake I thought she would enjoy the Strawberry Mille Cr√™pes. Overall the cake has a light and…

    Coconut Donut @ Dunkin’ Donuts

    Donuts are hands down my favorite food category. Dunkin’ Donuts happens to be my favorite coffee so I go there daily. And every day I have to fight off the urge to buy a donut. Most days I win the will power battle but on Sundays I give in to temptation. Being a huge coconut fan naturally the coconut cake donut is one of my all time favorites. Coconut donuts seem to be common place in the suburbs but finding them in NYC is more challenging. When I moved into my current residence in Murray Hill neither one of the local Dunkin’ Donuts sold coconut donuts. One quick online feedback…

    Eggs Chilaquiles @ Trace

    My wife and I went to San Francisco to attend a friend’s wedding. We stayed at the W Hotel which happens to be home to destination restaurant Trace. I took this opportunity to have breakfast at Trace all four days. On the second day of our stay I ordered the¬†Eggs Chilaquiles which are described on the menu as being prepared with roasted tomato salsa, crispy tortilla, and queso cotija. I had never heard of chilaquiles before and a quick Google search found “chilaquiles are a traditional Mexican dish of fried tortillas bathed in green or red salsa until tender.” I didn’t know what to expect from what I perceived to…
