New York and New Look

First of all, welcome to the re-vamped look of Bake or Break, or BoB as we call it around here. After almost a year and a half, it seemed like a little updating was overdue. We’re still tweaking a bit and adding a few more details, but hopefully the overhaul will be completely finished in short order.

We recently spent just over a week in our favorite city, New York. As those of you who are familiar with the city can appreciate, we ate a lot of wonderful food. I have lost track of everything we had, but I do have a few pictures to share with you.

I love to go to Dean & Deluca in SoHo and drool over, well, pretty much everything.

We visited a new place that I will definitely be frequenting. Kitchen Arts & Letters is a bookstore of only food-related books. This is certainly not a quick stop, as I perused just the baking section for quite a while. Somehow, I showed remarkable restraint and only left with one cookbook.

We also enjoyed several Broadway shows (we just missed the stagehand’s strike), shopping, and just walking around. We did find time to visit the butterflies at the Natural History Museum.

It’s always sad to leave such a great city, but luckily we already have plans for our next trip in February!

    Out of curiosity, what are your favorite places to eat in New York? I live in DC now, but grew up in the area, and always love to hear what other people who visit regularly go back to.

    For me, no trip is complete without visits to Zabars, Veselka, Venieros, Ollies, and Nick’s.

    Love love love this site. So chic and clean-looking. Next time you go to New York, you have to go to Zabar and Balducci for their exquisite grocery selection!

    Thanks, everyone, for the compliments! I’m excited about the new look.

    Tanya, we love to eat just about anywhere. Quinn loves pizza so we are quite familiar with all those spots. We also like to try out new places every time. Usually, we go to Becco. This trip we also made it back to Otto and new to us was Bar Americain. Very good indeed! I had a list of others to try, but we just didn’t get around to them all!

    Maria, I will definitely put those place on my list. We’ve already planned two trips for next year, so I’m sure we’ll make it to both!

    I really love the new look! Cutline is one of my favorites and the three columns make it much more useful! Very professional looking :-)

    I love New York City! I haven’t visited either place you mentioned — they are on my list now.

    Your blog looks great. Your photography is incredible.
