This week, we had a day or two where spring in NYC actually seemed like a possibility. I live for these February days, and since I work dangerously close to Central Park, sunshine is the best way to break up the workday. On Friday, I found myself wearing my trench coat, strolling around aimlessly at lunch, and savoring some Grom Gelato, naturally.
Yesterday, I’d like to think that I had my first taste of the truly delicious and sophisticated New York City dining scene: lunch at a Daniel Boulud restaurant.
Since Boulud Sud opened, I had been hearing nothing but great things about the Mediterranean-inspired menu. While I love all kinds of food, mediterranean dishes have a special place in my heart, so Boulud Sud has been on my restaurant Bucket List since its existence.
I don’t remember exactly how or where I came across this lovely Nigella Lawson recipe for the first time, but it’s become one of my favorite, impossibly-easy-yet-impressive Sunday dinners. It’s perfect for one of those nights where you invite a few friends over, but would rather socialize than fuss over anything too elaborate. It’s also fool-proof, another good quality of a meal reserved for entertaining. And obviously, anything made with Chorizo is a winner in my book. I love chorizo.
