New York City: A Love Letter (DAY 2 + 3)

As you know by now, our trips usually revolve around food ;) and trying new restaurants in whatever city we are visiting.  But -- we had such an amazing meal last time we visited in November, that we once again found ourselves at Asiate on the 35th floor of the Mandarin Oriental. 

SUNDAY -- DAY 2:  We had Sunday Brunch and both the food + view were amazing, as usual. I had Duck and Waffles this time.  Again, highly recommend this restaurant {for a splurge} if you find yourself in NYC. Below is the view from our table at brunch: 

After brunch, we walked around Central Park to the Bethesda Fountain which is quickly becoming my favorite area of the park -- that and Sheep Meadow!

After Central Park, we headed to The Empire State Building for a quick trip to the top.  Always amazing views to be had up there! I think next time we'll check out Top of the Rock so that we can actually see the ESB in our photos. I think Top of the Rock has a better view towards Central Park too. There is always next time!

MONDAY -- DAY 3:  I mentioned that we stayed in Chelsea this time and I absolutely loved it! We stayed at Hotel Americano and it really exceeded all of my expectations. I love the modern minimalist, unfussy vibe and the service and restaurant were both great as well.  

Jake and I woke up early and hit the High Line to check out another section that we hadn't been on before. 

We were even able to walk via the High Line from the hotel to our brunch spot -- The Cookshop {also in Chelsea} where I had delicious pancakes and a watermelon {whaat???} mojito! I still think about that mojito. So good! Then it was a quick shopping trip to Brooklyn Industries and then back to the airport we went. Peace out NYC, you know we'll be back soon! 

Travel Fully,
