I know that most folks go easy on their digestive systems the day after Thanksgiving, but I usually take the opportunity to go food exploring. I'm planning to hit the following spots today:
The new Jacques Torres shop on Amsterdam between 73rd and 74th Sts. Seems like a perfect day for hot chocolate, doesn't it?
A burger at either Prime Burger (51st between Fifth and Madison) or the Burger Joint at the Parker Meridian (118 W.57th bet. 6th and 7th aves.), since I'm meeting friends there at 2 p.m. anyway.
A pizza or two or four at Una Pizza Napoletana. A fine Washington, D.C., chef Bob Kinkead and one of the nation's great bread bakers Mark Furstenberg, have embarked on a New Jersey-New York-Connecticut pizza tour, and I am meeting them at UPN, where I recently had two extraordinary pies with Adam Kuban.
Anybody else doing anything but eating leftovers today?
It's going to be a great day. I'm hitting all my favorite food groups, chocolate, burgers, and pizza.
