The Real Cronut from Dominique Ansel (via Goldbely)

The Real Cronut from Dominique Ansel (via Goldbely) When I made the decision this past Fall to not wait in the 3+ hour line for the famous Cronut™ at Dominique Ansel Bakery, I didn’t think I would get a chance to taste the Cronut™ until another visit to NYC.

Eleven Madison Park Our best meal during our NYC trip, and maybe one of my best meals of all time, took place at Eleven Madison Park. We’ve been trying to cut back on our food expenses this year after all the indulgence of last year. But with so many great restaurants in NYC, we had […]
