flashback Fierro Sunday


Last Sunday Ticol and I treated ourselves to a fancy brunch at the Fierro Hotel. It was also the perfect excuse to grab my new camera and practice some food photos in the natural light!
It all happened very last minute on Easter Sunday.

We woke in the early afternoon with big appetites and no desire to jump straight in the kitchen as we had service that night at NOLA for 18 guests. (Days of service means 5 hours of prep + 3 hour dinner + 1 hour cleanup. It’s a lot of kitchen time and I try to stay clear of the cocina beforehand.)

We called Fierro and they told us they were booked however if anything opened up they’d give us a buzz.

And then they did and we threw ourselves together and jumped in a cab.

It was exactly how I remembered it….


Sunday in Greenwich Village


On Sunday the girls and I met in Greenwich Village for brunch.

Dara and I are both big fans of Market Table off Bleecker Street and when she mentioned it the three of us quickly agreed. Something about their big windows and rustic decor… and of course the food!

I remember having the best cauliflower of my life from here years back!

We grabbed a table after a short wait at the bar and before you know it the chef was sending out free goodies!

Why? We have no idea!

Maybe they had heard about our Subway bust and decided to reward us?!!




A couple weeks back I had the privilege of eating at Aipim for their last weekend of brunch service.
