Tiny bit of spring is peeking out on the Highline. Tried to take in a little bit of sun in the cold weather while Andy and Lori visited this weekend. Also featured in the pics: Deric, Jeff, Laura, and Nick. Justin and Ben were out on the Highline with us that day as well. Dim sum + Highline + chocolate milk + good friends = great day!

Fair shake & shack burger via shake shack. It makes my tummy happy & makes laundry go by much faster :).

quadratura

Beautiful installation using light and architecture.

Here’s the description from the artist, Pablo Valbuena’s, website:

“Site-specific installation. Matadero Madrid. ES. 2010. Video projection on architecture.

Quadratura was the technique used in the baroque to extended architecture through trompe l’oeil and perspective constructions generated with paint or sculpture.

The site-specific installation presented at Matadero Madrid follows the same principles but manipulating space by means of projected light. The main axis of the room of Abierto x Obras is extended and the limits of the physical space dissolved.”

japan

Disheartening images of the tragic state of Japan due to the recent tsunami & earthquake.  My heart goes out to them for all the lives lost as well as hope for a quick recovery.

Ash timber planks from Australia compose this Aesop Skincare store in Paris by March Studio.  I’m a sucker for highly detailed projects using timber like this.  Beautiful.

branzino & bone marrow_prune restaurant

Recently had the most delicious thing at Prune Restaurant for Jeff’s birthday dinner.  The Roasted Bone Marrow appetizer is to die for here.  It’s served with toasted bread, parsley, and sea salt.  Soooo buttery and delicious.  I highly recommend it.

For entrée, I had the fish of the day which was grilled branzino stuffed with fennel.  It was cooked to perfection.

Other good appetizers were the Octopus and Squid with Celery and the Butter Poached Fingerling Potatoes.

Prune is definitely a must go.  Great atmosphere and food.  I left very satisfied.
