Foodie/Celebrity Reading

Cause we can't always eat; we might as well read about Chefs, actors and musician's eating....

Lunch Time Activities: BLUE SMOKE

In NYC; you have your usual BBQ contenders, Hill Country, Dinosaur BBQ, Fette Sau, Daisy May's, Rock and Soul and RUB; I've visited 3 out of 5 of those places.  Hill Country still remains my fav!  Then you have BLUE SMOKE; Danny Meyers upscale take on classic Barbecue; which I haven't been to until Friday.


I love Danny Meyer, I love the high standard he sets for his food and I love the atmosphere he creates in his restaurants.  So when given the chance to have lunch at Blue Smoke; you bet I was super excited.

I LOVE FRIED PICKLES; there I said it.  

NOW....rewind back to April 2010; driving across America with Jeana while eating lunch:

"I really hate pickles"
"Me too."
Bite into pickle that came with lunch - "ugh I really don't like them, you want to taste?"
BITE - "me either" -passing it back
"I just don't understand why everybody loves them" - passing back to her.
Bite, pass back, bite, pass back and the pickle is finished.
"ummm, I think I secretly like pickles" - "Me too"

And that my friends, is how I discovered my love for pickles and also brings me to the point of this post - the best fried pickle I've ever had in NYC
