If you live in New York and eat food, you should be reading Immaculate Infatuation. Period. Now that that’s out of the way…
I went to their Turkey Leg Ball on Wednesday and had an absolute blast. The food was excellent. (My favorite was actually the vegetarian slider. I’m still not sure how I feel about this. I’m basically admitting that vegetables can taste better than bacon, which is turning my world upside down. I’m telling myself that it was just a little patty of cheese with maybe a mushroom thrown in there so they could call it vegetarian. I don’t know. I’m still confused.)
And as hard as this is for me to say, the people were even better than the food. The guys who run the blog, Chris and Andrew, are some of the nicest people I’ve met so far in New York. They gifted me with the t-shirt seen above, and have been doing their damndest on their twitter feed to make sure I don’t have to suffer through any more dates like this.
I was also lucky enough to talk to the owner of what has lately been my favorite restaurant in the city, Upstate Beer and Oyster Bar. Guess what? He’s a really nice guy too.
Everyone else I met was just as friendly. I think my new first criteria for making friends in the city is going to be “reads and enjoys Immaculate Infatuation.” If Wednesday night is any indication, it’s a pretty good starting point for figuring out how much I’ll enjoy someone’s company.
