Alice, amazed at the aisles filled with the most ridiculous selection of Barilla; sticky figgy gelato from EATaly (it was gross and even Alice threw hers away)
Not pictured: the Stumptown baristas chucking newspapers while stroking their staches
Juicy lamb burger (side of cumin mustard) and charcuterie at the Breslin
Mac n cheese pancakes and ebelskivers from Shopsins
OK, I didn't intend to spend more time and money on Mr. Chang, but how could I resist a $25 pre fixe power lunch with Wendy?? Spring rolls in particular were deceptively modern
Not pictured: wasabi-packed uni panini from El Quinto Pino, multiple stops for iced coffee at Ost and the Third Rail pop-up at Rapha, the feeding of 5000 at Madangsui, yet another depressing defeat at The Australian, and a feast of Chino Latino and congealed Joe Shanghai leftovers!
Looking forward to colder weather... it's starting to smell like fall!
