Posts Tagged ‘pot pie’

I love birthdays. I love birthdays where friend’s tell me what they want to do and where they want me to meet them. I’m always the planner and I know all the places I want to go to, so it’s nice to see some stuff on other people’s radar.

The Jane Hotel. Strange. Eclectic. Old? Really, what a strange place. There are a lot of hotels with interesting decor and you can add The Jane to the list. The bar area is awesome because it’s a huge open area with big open couches which is perfect for large groups. It made me think it’s the hipster/cheap European traveler’s Rose Bar. Yep. It is.

Also in the Jane is Cafe Gitane, which is also interesting. Very interesting menu. One item highly recommended on the interwebs (foursquare tips, what?) is the avocado toast:

It’s kind of the perfect appetizer to split with one other person.

For entrees, I ordered the salmon pot pie:

That’s the salmon pot pie in the front and Lucy’s salad in the back. She’s such a good girl. I on the other hand was craving some gooey pot pie with all this rain lately, but gooey pot pie it wasn’t. Let me tell you what it was: Stick your fork into it and find a giant piece of salmon! It was salmon with a pot pie crust. Very interesting but not exactly what I wanted.

Here is the couscous with chicken that many a Foursquare users recommended:

I mean… I like couscous and everything, and there was chicken involved but I don’t think I would ever order it for a meal. Yes, that couscous tower is impressive, but it’s still couscous. Also, I had some hummus at lunch, so…

Another solid entree was the pasta with prosciutto. It was elbow noodles, which I love and it made me really want some solid mac and cheese.

Moving onto dessert. The chocolate cake was more like a chocolate brownie. Desperately needed some ice cream or a gooey chocolate center:

Also for dessert we got a chocolate bread pudding for the birthday girl. My favorite bread pudding is still at Posto.

Happy Birthday, Susan!

Oh one more comment – one thing I noticed tonight at dinner was that I was surrounded by some high-class women. We had JP Morgan, HP, Dell, American Express, and the NHL in the house. And those are just the ones I remember. Only in New York.

Remember when I had a new favorite bar called Lillie’s? Last week was pretty cold and all I wanted was some chicken pot pie. So me and my lunch date Lisa went to Lillie’s last week. She had some fish n chips, which actually sounds kind of good right now, and I got my chicken pot pie. I just love how pretty Lillie’s is.

It was really weird to be there when it was on the empty side because at night it is totally packed. I want to go back here again. And again. I just love how long the bar is and as I said, it’s so pretty!
