Mark and I actually went and had lunch together today without the kids. Do you know how huge this is? This hasn’t happened in years. We were toying with the idea of going to Momofuku, the much celebrated restaurant of the moment, however after seeing the menu, I realized that it was familiar Korean-inspired food. Probably more artfully prepared than the relative hole-in-the wall places we go with my parents, but, familiar nonetheless. We chose to go, instead, to Soba-ya, a fresh soba place that we would go quite frequently when we lived around the corner in the East Village. We hadn’t been there in years, but we vowed to come back and bring the kids since they both love noodles. Along with our soba, we also had uni (sea urchin) which is possibly my favorite thing to eat ever.
I should have gone home afterwards, but today was a gorgeous day, right? I made a trip back to New York Central to buy more paper and I splurged on some gouche and a square notebook of paper since I have this grand idea that I will be doing a lot of drawing this summer. OK, so I really should have gone home then, but such a shame to go inside on a pretty day. More walking, window shopping, trying on dresses, but no purchases except for this big circle brass necklace from Anthropologie. Perfect day.
