I apologize, but you’re going to gain one hundred pounds just reading this entry. To justify myself, this was the only meal I went out for this past weekend. So I might as well make it count, right?

5 Napkin Burger has for some reason been on my list of restaurants to try for awhile. It reminded me a LOT of BLT Burger, but they had their milkshakes listed on the dessert menu only, which I thought was a big mistake because I would have had a shake WITH my burger (split with KP, of course). Speaking of – we split this mac and their 5 Napkin burger that comes with melty cheese and onions. I’m sparing you the picture, actually.

SO the mac and cheese was good, if a bit on the soupy side (get your act together, NYC restaurants!) It had a bit of an alfredo flavor, not gonna lie. But I love macaroni and cheese made with shell noodles, probably cause my mom makes this awesome pasta dish with elbow noodles that I love.

AND since it was the Upper West Side at approximately 4p.m. they must have assumed we were having dinner like the rest of the families with small children present, because they handed us a dessert menu and Chloe, KP, and I did not resist:

Chocolate brownie, espresso ice cream, salted peanuts. I told you I made it count.

The other thing I liked about 5 Napkin Burger is first, the walls are subway tiles, and secondly they had two really cool chalkboards covered in cartoons. You can sorta see in this picture:

So I would say go to 5 Napkin if you’re in the hood, but I think I still prefer BLT.

Also: today I’m eating a salad. Maybe.

Well, folks. It is Monday! Martin Luther King, JR day and I am at the office, how about you?

This is Kelly going all Pacman at Patsy’s Pizza. She’s probably going to love this picture so much she’ll use it for her Valentine’s Day cards.

Patsy’s Pizza is pretty popular and there are quite a few locations, so it’s interesting that I had never been until the other night when we visited the UWS location. This was actually right after I met good ol’ Johnny Weir.

Patsy’s is pretty good. We got pepperoni and sausage pizza and a caprice salad because you know, we needed some more cheese. The next day I heated up some Patsy’s in the office kitchen for my lunch and had two huge slices on my plate when some Salad Girls walked in. That was awesome. Sometimes you just need some pizza!

What’s the best thing YOU ate this weekend?

Oh man, why do I do this to myself? Post pictures of amazing meals when yesterday I pretty much just had soup and a sandwich. Yey. What I would have liked to have was the steamed pork buns and ramen from Fatty Crab on the UWS (above.) I went to Fatty Crab with Kelly and Chloe not this past weekend but the weekend before after seeing The Nutcracker at Lincoln Center. Perfect.

Well, hello, that’s me taking a bite out of a pork bun. And this picture also makes me realize that I’ve been wearing this dress pretty much every day for the past three weeks. But that’s what I do. I get something and I wear the crap out of it, eventually retire it and then bust it out occasionally as needed. So right now I’m wearing the crap out of this Madewell dress.

I will say one thing… it’s an interesting experience when everyone at the table has their camera out and is snapping pictures of the food. I’m actually not sure I can handle it!

That above is the chili crab which is AMAZING. It’s crab that you have to pull apart, crack, whatever to get at the meat and it’s soaking in this chili broth and there are also big pieces of bread and it is SO GOOD! A lot of work to eat but really delicious. I will likely go there again and order that again because it was good. Take a looksies:


And there you have it. Also part of Fatty Crab is Fatty Cue in Brooklyn, which I need to get myself over to stat. It’s been on my list for months and months and months now. I just saw on their websites that they are both open on Christmas Day, so there you go.
