It’s around 6pm here and we’re back in our apartment for a little rest again… Did I mention my feet are sore from all of this walking!? It’s a good job there are lots of pitt-stops for refueling along the way! The weather is warming up here and I definitely didn’t pack for the heat. Eh, where did that come from? Not what my weather app said before I left… Hmm, may have to buy a few clothes if it gets any hotter. Such a shame!
This morning we popped to Central park for a stroll. We’ve been quite a few times before, but our past visits were always over the Christmas season, so it was nice to see it during the Spring time. There were blue skies, but it seems that when we took our pictures it looked a bit murky…
There was lots of musical entertainment in the park, but it’s this fine looking pair that took Alex’s fancy.
Apparently one was playing a dulcimer (I knew that) and the other a harp. (I really did spot that one)
There I am…
After our walk we went for lunch at Estiatorio Milos, which isn’t too far from Central Park. I’d booked this in advance, after reading Trip Advisor reviews and it turned out to be a good one. They serve up a $25 dollar three course lunch (not including Tax and tips), which is pretty good value if you don’t go for all the extras.
Overall we had good service and the food was more than satisfying. Two content customers…
I paid a $10 supplement and opted for the crab cake, which wasn’t the best of all the dishes if I’m totally honest, but still enjoyable.
For mains I had Loup de Mer (Sea bass), grilled, served with steamed crown broccoli.
Alex went all out and paid a little extra for the Lobster pasta in a light garlic tomato sauce. I obviously had a little taste and it was delicious.
He followed that up with the biggest slice of Baklava I’ve seen… I have only ever eaten the mini ones from Waitrose though. It was divine! (Yes, I sampled that as well)
Finally, I finished with a lovely fresh-tasting strawberry sorbet.
Phew! We needed to walk some of that off so next we hopped on the subway to Roosevelt Island. Not much to see over there, but we walked for a bit and then got the Aeriel Tram back over the bridge, which gave us some good views from up above…
Tired out, we did a bit of mooching around a few shops and decided to come back to our apartment for a rest before heading out to Blue Note Jazz Club this evening. So, there you have it… Day two in New York and we’ve still got three and a bit more to go!
