Just had lunch at Utsav, this fancy Indian place across the street from work. It was my welcome lunch from my boss, and she was kind enough to pay for it. It was a beautiful meal. The rice was perfect, the Zaffrani chicken was tender and spicy (but not too spicy) and savory. Must remember to bring Adan to this place. Maybe next Monday, when he’s not working and my first paycheck will have gone through. It was a little pricy, but not insanely so. About as much as Olive Garden would cost. Mmmm, yummy. Now I have to fight off the post-lunch afternoon lassitude.
For Maggie — Serendipity III is a little place up on 60th and 3rd Ave that’s famous for its desserts and drinks. They serve normal food too, but why eat sandwiches when you could have Dark Double Devil Mousse? Another good point in their favor is that they’re located close to the Lexington Ave stop on the R. Which means that, door to door, it’s less than 20 minutes from my apartment.
