After dinner we headed over to the Dove Parlor, where we had reservations for cocktails. We did not spend a single dime. I guess New York men have never seen beautiful southern girls, so the free drinks just kept flowing. (In our heads we tallied it up and they spent well over $1000 buckaroos!!) Drinks were had at multiple locations during the trip, but this was the most note-worthy.
Friday night we ate at Alta, where the tapas were amazing. Of course we all shared, but I ordered the Pulled Pork Empanadas, Angus Beef Sliders in Turkish Yufka Pastry and my favorite, the Warm Crab Salad.
Kara and I spent Saturday by ourselves going to an assortment of places all over the city. We at lunch at Bar Americain, which came highly recommended by her parents. I had the Boston Lettuce, Poached Egg, and Buttermilk-Blue Cheese salad.
Our best dinner was saved for last. It was at Buddakan. Sound familiar? If you watched the first SATC movie it is where Carrie and Big have their rehearsal dinner. You know the big, long table? We sat right beside it in the swankiest booth with a full view of the place. You walk down stairs into a large room, with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. Beautiful. The Carrot Dumplings and Edamame Dumplings were wonderful appetizers, and my Hot and Sour Scallops were probably the best I have ever eaten. Just about everyone else had the Kung Pao Monkfish, which was also incredibly delish.
