We had a decent range of the quick meal options New York has to offer... I have to say New Yorkers knows how to make a good sandwich.
The amount of protein is a bit much...but it's a vacation, right?
The next day we went to Katz's Deli, made famous by this scene in When Harry Met Sally:
The place looks exactly the same as it looks in the movie.
R had a reuben:
I had a corned beef sandwich.
They come with pickles. As you may recall, I'm very particular about my pickles. The full sours were excellent. The other (brighter green) ones were, what I would call "a cucumber pretending (but failing) to be a pickle".
The day after, we spent time in Central Park and picnicked with some New York Bagels.
We also got a black and white cookie. R couldn't resist after learning about the cookie from Seinfeld:
I also stopped into Magnolia Bakery, which isn't nearly as serene as you might think it would be. I resisted on buying a cupcake, but wanted to take a few pictures.
Aside from a few meals, those are the food highlights. Here are some shots of the city...
We also managed to get tickets for Letterman. It was Monday's show with Bill Cosby. Before the show, we got some sandwiches at Hello Deli, which is featured on the Letterman show from time to time. The place is a dump and the guy working behind the counter kept wiping down his meat slicer with the same rag he used to clean around the sink. But, the sandwich was decent. Rupert seems like a nice enough guy -- always letting people taking a picture of him.
Overall, a great trip. But now it's back to wedding planning.
