Thank you so much for the lovely wishes on our anniversary!
We splurged on an intimate dinner at Ichimura at Brushstroke. It was an amazing experience - which Pete Wells, the current NYT food critic, describes more eloquently that I would ever be able to in his review here.
It's funny that it was only a few months back that we shunned any thought of having an entire meal of near-raw fish. It all changed on our trip to Japan last November when we dined at Daiwa Sushi in Tsukiji Market (home of the famous tuna auctions). The chefs at that countertop restaurant spoke limited English, while we spoke limited Japanese. Not wanting to come across rude, we ate everything placed in front of us - initially with apprehension, but later on with gusto. Everything was so tasty and very fresh - rightfully so since they were quite likely swimming in the ocean not long ago - but interestingly and most importantly, smelled nothing like the sea (the underlying source of my initial apprehension against seafood of the non-fried/curried variety)
We returned to New York with a sushi enthusiasm like none other - with a caveat though - I don't think I will ever be able to stomach $1 rolls.
Anyway I wore the Dromedary Dress from Anthropologie, which was so lovely to wear on the first warm night we've had in months - especially since I refrain from wearing silk with tights having never found the solution to static cling!
I wasn't completely tardy on the outfit picture front last week. I wore the following for Friday date night at Carbone. April showers that day brought with it a cold front so the boots went on for one last time this season (I packed them away this weekend yay!)

Oh and Carbone? I really liked it, especially the tiramisu (see it on my instagram here) - but I am not a fan of $30 pastas even if they were delicious!
