I think I need a new travel partner

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

DH and I spent 3 days in New York City. It was Passover and Easter weekend, so we couldn't get tickets to a show. But we could have gone to a museum. Or art galleries. Even shopped.

No. DH's idea of New York is a culinary tour of all his favorite spots. So we went to the Carnegie Deli, where he had a pastrami sandwich (and I had my taste, it IS the best pastrami in the world), I had matzah brei, and we shared a slice of cheesecake (arguably the best cheesecake in the world).

We went to a lovely little French bistro for dinner - my request.

We went to Jackson Hole, so DH and my nephew could have greasy burgers. (I had a plain waffle with fresh fruit - no butter, no syrup. I'm a Sparkie!)

We went to Sarge's Deli, so DH could have another pastrami sandwich - I had matzah ball soup. We shared a slice of cheesecake.

It goes on and on. His favorite diner for breakfast. This place for snack cupcake. On and on and on.

I will add, I did get in some Macy's time (with the wooden escalator I remember from my childhood), plus we walked everywhere in the city, putting on over 8 miles a day.

But still. My DH is a foodie, and I've gotten over that.

    I don't know how you make it with him dragging you to all those food places. Congrats for not caving in!

    If it means I get to go to NYC, I'll be your travel buddy! I've never been ;0)

    Funny that your trip centered around eating establishments. I am drooling over the best cheesecake in the world comment!
