We've just finished the weekend in NYC which has been great and have seemed to have spent most of the time eating and drinking (not sure whether we were celebrating or comiserating nearly coming to the end of our trip). We also met up with friends Nicky, Erica and James all from London who flew in for the weekend - was nice to see some familiar faces !

Rather than list the touristy things we did (you can read those in your Time Out guides) here are the places where we ate & drank, all of which were just brilliant;

Friday night dinner at Buddakan in the Meatpacking district was spectacular (and not because it featured in Sex and the City). On Saturday, we had drinks at the Flatiron Lounge - I'm not a martini fan but their version included orange vodka which made it taste less like rocket fuel and was really good. We then had awesome cooked cow at Quality Meats which was er..quality. I can't find the right superlative to describe the corn creme brulee as a side dish other than it was sooooooo gooood! Today. we had an amazing Sunday brunch at Cafe Boulud on the Upper East Side (mmm lobster scrambled eggs...).

So there was our weekend of food - yummy! We'll be back to bread and water when we're back in London.

A total change of subject now and here is our last podcast for you to enjoy. It is a lot shorter than the last one! Download and/or play it here

Glad to hear that Quality Meats was quality... not like the Quality Central in Glasgow which should be re-named the "barely adequate" Central.

Mum & I have been catching up on the podcasts to alleviate the madness of the builders and we think you should ditch the day-job and replace Chris Evans in the mornings! :D
