Cold Noodles and Hot Shows

East Village, NYC
Photo by myself in the East Village, around 10th Street and Second Avenue.

Mark and I are quite smitten by the noodle dishes at this tiny Japanese restaurant that has a handful of seats. They have a couple cold noodle dishes here that are perfect for summer days.

Alas, the cold noodles will have to wait until next year!


Speaking of food, this season's Top Chef takes place here in New York, which premieres November 12. I'm sure I will be addicted to the show even more than usual.

And speaking of Top Chef, you can meet this season's contestants today in a Five Borough tasting event.

That's right. Between noon and 3pm, Bravo TV is hosting a tasting event at Vanderbuilt Hall, at Grand Central Terminal. Fancy restaurants from each of the five boroughs will be showing their food.

Tickets are 30 bucks and all proceeds will go to charity. The list of restaurants looks scrumptious.

I wish I had known about this event earlier. I would have taken the day off to eat well and go to the gym!

Hi Valeria
It's great isn't it? and it seems pretty healthy. I could have it every day.

Hi Mr Lincoln
Thanks so much!

Thanks Lily!

Thanks Kelly
This street happens to be a special one. Gobs of charm in an unpretentious way.

Hi Tammy
Dinner Impossible? I really like that show, as well as Kitchen Nightmares. Mark and I can't get tired of them!
