My birthday unceremoniously began with a flight delay and a sad, un-photo worthy bagel in the United Club. I was applauding my willpower in bypassing Tortas Frontera, but as the delay grew longer I was regretting my decision yet too lazy to backtrack to concourse B.
Back in New York time for cocktails at Employees Only.
Dinner at one of my favorite places that I too often forget about in the quest to try the latest spots. I still remember my first visit right after it opened when it was empty aside from myself and a food blogger. I’m looking forward to Alex Stupak’s next place! #alineaalum
