So two weeks ago I went to New York City! While my visit was only about 24 hours, I had a blast! I finally got to see Wicked! All I can say is it was amazing! It was the first play/musical that I was not bored for a single moment! The singing was incredible, and I may or may not have mouthed words to the songs along with them (my sister had gotten the soundtrack a few years ago and I was hooked once I heard it)! Besides seeing this wonderful production, I also ate and shopped my way through NYC!
For dinner before the show we had dinner at Chez Napoleon per the recommendation of a friend! This was my first visit to a French restaurant, crazy right?! I decided to forgo the calve's brain and went with the chicken cordon bleu, tender chicken stuffed with delicious cheese and ham! For dessert we ordered chocolate mousse and the cherries jubilee! I am going to be honest, I was a little disappointed with the desserts. The mousse seemed like it was made either that morning or the day before and just pulled out of the refrigerator. I understand why restaurants do this, but it's so disappointing to the diners. The mousse had good flavor, but it tasted old. And as for the cherries jubilee, it didn't light on fire, but the ice cream and cherries were outstanding!
We also hit up a big name bakery that I was terribly disappointed by, we were rushed into and out of the place. My cupcake was dry and tasteless. My single cupcake was almost seven dollars! SEVEN DOLLARS! I could make 24 tastier cupcakes for that much! Sorry big name bakery, but I will not be rushing back anytime soon!
Also I saw this guy while walking down the street! I was like WHOA, you you you were in Bridesmaids! I didn't stop because I was kind of starstruck (first celeb encounter) and he was talking with some other people!
That is all for now! Coming soon a new Boston eats post! What are your favorite NYC eats?
I was not gifted any part of this trip, it was paid for by either me or my family. And I just wanted to share my honest opinions of these places!
