Short Review.

Bad news:

One of my favorite spots in NYC used to look like this...



Now looks like this...




Depressing.

The website says: "La Goulue has closed its doors after 36 wonderful years of serving its appraised French cuisine. We are planning to re-open soon in a new location..."

Let's hope it really does come back.

Good news:

I saw some fall weather (okay, maybe it wasn't really "Fall" as much as it was "Nor'easter", but whatever)...

(okay, so you people who get Fall every year, might not think this looks like Fall really, but trust me...it's Fall to me...)

...which means I got to wear coats...

...we got upgraded at the hotel...

...I finally got to try Park Avenue Autumn...

...everyday I ate this...




Short & sweet.

Overall, it was a great trip.

Looks like so much fun and that pizza looks delicious right about now (it's lunch time here). It's sad about your fave place, but hopefully it will reopen!

If it makes you feel any better, the Fall colors are quite here yet either.

That looks like fall to me! Ah, I miss Northeastern autumns... the trees actually change colors! Instead of, you know, going right from green and lush to bare branches.

Cee said...

How amazing would it have been if I bumped into you at PK Autumn!!! Awesome!!

I went there in the summer too and it was so delish (not to mention super pretty).

Sad to hear you left NYC, but glad you had a great time doll!!

XOXO

Glad you had a wonderful time! That pizza looks so divine, especially after I just ate a boring chicken wrap for dinner. Damn diets.
