Little Bro

My younger brother, Christofori and his girlfriend are coming into town. They stopped in Boston first for college orientation; Chris is going to Northeastern. I love when people come into town. It gives me a chance to do silly touristy things. I would never have the chance to get together with my friends and go to the Top of the Rock or take a ferry ride. But also, I get a chance to show off some of my favorite places in Manhattan, which of course includes Perry St. I love sending family members to Perry St, but even more than that I love taking them there myself. I could eat my husband's food all day long. Since Chris is 20, and he's eaten at Perry before, I'll let him and his girlfriend have a romantic night alone.

AND! The PATH train which takes my husband and I under the Hudson River to NY is getting all new train cars. Finally! It's the little things that really make the day to day special.

Food is Love,

I'd be careful with the "my husbands food"...it's not his name on the door just yet! If I've learned a few things, one is that you don't want to damage your husbands career with a big mouth!

Thanks for the advice, but HF, it is my husband's food. I've been eating at Perry St since it opened and I've had many of dishes created by both Jean Georges and Greg Brainin. More recently though, as Erik became the chef de Cuisine, the menu is composed of several dishes that are entirely my husband's creations. His name isn't on the door, but it's on the menu.

Thanks for reading!
