Teany

Forgive the cell phone photographs, but I have to review Teany.  There are prettier pictures on their website.  It’s my favorite go-to spot for a rainy day and we’ve been having quite a few of those recently.  On my last trip, I tried their vegan quiche:

It came with a really good vodka sauce on the side and a green salad that I had with their tahini dressing.  The quiche was WONDERFUL.  It had a very soft crust and a nice quichey(quiche-esque? quiche-ish? the word ‘quiche’ looks like it’s not real now that I’ve typed it so many times) texture and the flavor was perfect.  The sauce on the side was also really good – some nice mushrooms hanging out in there.  I sat around working and grazing for about an hour before I started wondering if it was time for dessert. It’s always time for dessert.  I ordered the Chocolate Macaroon Cake:

Ridiculously good.  This shouldn’t be allowed to exist.  It was chocolate cake with chocolate coconut buttercream.  Enough said.  I am in love with Teany and its preciousness.  I didn’t have any tea this time (coffee addiction is too strong) but the Green Cherry Blossom tea is beautiful. Of course there’s the whole Moby connection – which is very cool.  Check out his blog! Go eat their Chicken Salad Salad!

The five most frightening women in New York City

The five most frightening women in New York

As of yesterday at 6:30 pm, I am in New York. I found out Wednesday afternoon that I had to fly out immediately and since I got here it has been a whirlwind of workworkwork. It’s great! I am so exhausted! I can’t feel my face! I haven’t slept in 48 hours because my first flight Wednesday night got cancelled after I sat in the airport (and on the plane) for 6 hours. I took another flight out at 10 AM Thursday, but jet lag and excitement have prevented me from the zzzz’s. In any case – I’m living out of a hotel and a suitcase for a month.

All I gots is a microwave. Mmm. Want to see what I can nuke? Didn’t think so. So for the month of May, this here blog will officially be all about reviewing restaurants in the city. I haven’t been able to eat out yet but damn did I have a good soy latte from Cafe Grumpy! No pictures yet – I’ve been working non-stop for the past 24 hours. Finally, I’m about to fall asleep and drown soak in a hot lavender filled bathtub. Tomorrow morning holds a run to Whole Foods and whoooo knows what else. Mystery! Intrigue!
