NYC - Day 1

Breakfast: Lenny's
H&H whole wheat bagel with cream cheese
Freshly toasted and eaten on the go, this whole wheat bagel was delicious. Holy.crap. The cream cheese was generous, even for me.


Lunch: Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) fifth floor terrace
Roasted cauliflower and Bayley Hazen blue cheese tart served with red endive & arugula salad, shaved apple, and pomegranate shallot vinaigrette.
I immediately thought of a quiche when this dish was presented to me. Though the wait was long, the roasted cauliflower hit the spot. I knew I had more walking to do in the city, so I deliberately chose this as "light" food fare.

Dinner: Shake Shack
Shack Stack Burger - Cheese burger with a 'Shroom burger topped with lettuce, tomato, and ShackSauce
The Shack Stack burger was phenomenal. There was plenty of beef, which should satisfy the meat lovers out there. The glue that binds this burger, however, is the muenster and cheddar cheese-filled fried portobello mushroom. O-M-G. It's been my experience that when you bite into a port mushroom cap, you invariably end up eating the entire cap in the process because it's so "gummy." The fried 'shroom allowed you to take actual bites with your burger. The best part? With each bite of mushroom, the cheese stuffing oozed out onto the rest of the burger. OooOOooo... so. good. Food porn alert!
