Our second day in New York was a busy one because we were only there for the weekend and wanted to fit in as much as possible. We love dim sum and found a great little restaurant called Dim Sum Palace on W 46th St not too far from our hotel. It is cozy inside but felt very authentic. We ordered our favorites including shrimp dumplings, spicy Sichuan won tons, bamboo shoot dumplings, Chinese broccoli with black olive sauce and Lo Mein noodles. I don’t get to eat dim sum often so it is always a special treat and I can’t wait to go back and eat there again!
After lunch, we headed to the Empire State Building and luckily did not encounter long lines. It was a cool day but we had clear skies and the views were AMAZING. Just take a look at the photos below!
After a little shopping at street stalls where we got a deal on pop sockets, which seems to be the new craze in iPhone accessories, we went back to our hotel to make a quick change for the evening. Afterwards we headed to a favorite pizza restaurant which has a relaxed but trendy atmosphere and great cocktails, B Squared at 679 Ninth Ave. We ordered the Marge with Soppresata which is the best pepperoni pizza you will ever eat!
From there we took an Uber to the Lincoln Center to see My Fair Lady. Lauren Ambrose was simply perfect as Eliza and Harry Hadden-Paton as Mr. Higgins was equally gifted. I have to say I loved it!
Every time I’m here I have such a great time and I leave with a list of things I want to do when I return! It won’t be long!!!
