This weekend my sister came up to the city to spend Christmas with me! Saturday was pretty rainy and gross outside, but we braved the weather and trekked out in search for some good food. We were well rewarded for our efforts! First stop was Fiore in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I ordered the cavatelli with broccoli rabe and sausage, and the sis had the parmesan arugula grilled pizza. A perfect lunch for a lazy, rainy Saturday.
Afterwards, we wandered back into Manhattan and went to Ninth Street Espresso in the east village – and found the best cup of coffee in the city. No kidding. AND they do not have a laptop ban … (ahem ahem Cafe Grumpy!!)
Since I have my own espresso machine, I also bought a pound of coffee – the total was $13! This was a great deal because typically a latte costs $4.25 by itself!
