the Saturday of the New York City Wine & Food Festival was certainly exciting this year, the Sunday was what stuck out in my mind by far. Some of my favorite carts in one place at a brand new locale followed by unlimited stone crab legs and key lime pie while watching the sunset. It was a beautiful day.
Carts in the Parc at the new spot FoodParc. Biryani Cart, Treats Truck, Big Gay Ice Cream, even the latest Vendy Winner, King of Falafel & Shawarma was there, but true to form, I wanted to try the things I can't get regularly. I really didn't even are about the celebs that were there, though it was hosted by Andrew Zimmern!
Sweet Street Desserts from the Philly area really stood out. They came prepared with a massive selection of sweets, and you were free to choose any. I went with what they were handing out at the time, two mousses: Chocolate Caramel, and Strawberry Lemon. The Chocolate Caramel was by far the best thing I had there, it was luscious and rich, and just the right mini size. I could have eaten dozens.
the Salty Pimp.
Bar Basque was the icing on the cake.
Sunset Stone Crab at the Gansevoort. The top of the Gansevoort isn't a place I frequent. Hell, the entire Meatpacking district isn't a place I frequent, but I deal with it for the food. For this, they brought in fresh stone crab from Miami's George's Stone Crab. Imagine tables of crab legs, that keep getting magically replenished. It was awesome.
