caravan of dreamsPosted: April 7, 2013
We hit the big apple for a day for ( country mouse, me ) to visit my sister ( city mouse ). We stopped at the lovely Rubin museum, spent time in the park and caught a little Off Broadway show called Mr. Irresistible. The sun was shining, the city bustling with all sorts of characters and families with strollers, the museum delightful, the show hilarious and then we had dinner.
It was a little place in the East Village, Caravan of Dreams, which my sister tells me was vegan before it became fashionable. A single string player serenaded us. We shared our courses and I had a glass of beet, carrot, celerey, lemon, greens juice. It was red like wine, but I hope much more healthy.
Warmed olives, the taste seemed to burst out of them.
Almond hummus, with dehydrated ( not cooked 🙂 ) chips and veggies. It was all very good, but this was excellent.
A Thai salad with avocado, alot of avocado.
And the main course…. in New York, pasta of course.
Then it was a taxi ride back to the train to Philly past the Madison Square gardens and the bright lights.
