Happy Thursday! Don’t forget to enter the 80s Song/Face Wash Week Contest!
My parents are in town, which usually means a Broadway show or two and some good meals. Last night we ate at Marseille on 9th Avenue at 44th Street and it was phenomenal. It’s a French restaurant actually owned by a French man, which is a rarity, even in New York. I had a Mediterranean salad and the Tunisian chicken, which was out of control good. Then we saw The Seafarer, which had an amazing ensemble cast, but had a script and set that did not impress me. There was so much sitting AROUND in this play, it was literally unbelievable. A lot of card playing as well. I don’t like to play cards myself, I CERTAINLY don’t want to watch a play that is 30% card playing. The story line got more interesting and it did leave me thinking about it, though. Maybe it’s worth seeing for that. But unless you get discounted tickets or something, I’d see something else.
Anywho, post-dinner and pre-show, I popped some of my new French Kiss Gum. Have I mentioned that I am obsessed with gum? I LOVE GUM. I am never without it. I normally chew Orbit Peppermint and I find that an entire piece hinders my speech, which you can imagine, is unacceptable to me. So I chew a half at a time. This means that I go through 1-3 packs a week as opposed to 6. I learned about Dr. Katz’s gum, and was intrigued because it boasts ridiculously fun packaging, but, the strong TheraBreath PLUS Formula makes this the only gum that obliterates odors instantly. It tastes curiously of lemon and vanilla creme combined, but delish nonetheless. I rather adore it. The con is that it doesn’t last as long as my standby, Orbit, but the aftertaste is not bad. Per Dr. Katz, the breath-freshening power of the gum lasts long after the taste runs out because the taste is not what is responsible for the breath control. Also, it does not contain aspartame or saccharin, retail 3 packs of 12 for $9. Makes a super Valentines Day gift! Or a gift for yourself to prepare for your imaginary Emmy-worthy scene where you kiss Matthew Fox. 14 Days till the LOST premier!
I’m so sorry we won’t be able to meet up! I totally understand last min trips. I’m going to be in Philly this weekend anyway.
Les Halles is RIGHT UNDER MY BUILDING! If you’re going to the one on 28th/Park. There’s another on John Street downtown. Craft is fantastic, you’ll love it. Go to Bubbie’s in Tribeca for brunch, you’ll adore it. Dos Caminos is good for dinner as well. Town. (don’t forget the period) is okay, I wasn’t wildly impressed. Koi near bryant park is also a bit pricy, but phenom. Where are you staying?
Have so much fun!!
You have been a busy blogger!!
Sounds like a Fab time in NYC. I mos def want to try out that restaurant. I will be in NYC this weekend kinda last minute work and late Christmas gift from the hubs.
I wish I had more time so I could meet up with you!!!
I think we are going to see some muiscals and eat at Craft and Le Halles–2 fine establishments I have yet to try. Have you tried Town?
The gum (and of course Matt Fox) sound great, but I have slight TMJ so I cannot chew gum. RATS.
Hope you have a great time with your parents. Please post the other restaurants you try.
