super bowl balls

super bowl xlix

what’s sexier than a girl wearing a victoria’s secret bra? a girl wearing 3: 1 bra on the usual, 2nd for my right shoulder, & a 3rd for the left. #shoulderpads

celebrating super bowl balls! sing along with me if you will…

feb 2nd [add-on]: did you love it or hate it? what a game, especially from a non-avid football game watcher! the ads however were mostly disappointing — some being a complete waste of good money. definitely enjoyed the viagra fiat and the mercedes [tortoise + hare] commercials the most. halftime show: missy elliot, awesome as usual. katy perry, vox on point but wardrobe? 1st hot wheels gear should be illegal, 2nd [slightly better] transformed her into a hot dog on a stick girl jumping on lemons for fresh lemonade. the later outfits were bearable. the shooting star made the show seem like it was for little children at disneyland.

the dogpiles, awesome. the big fightclub near the end of the game made me bit nervous but so entertaining.

anyhey, congrats, pats!!! ‘merica!

i’ve been rolling around seductively filthily in the snow. but i was also inspired by the recent craigslist ads in search of blizzard boyfriends + girlfriends for the deemed-to-be “historic” blizzard, so i wrote a new [silly] song yesterday & shot an impromptu video in the cold, no jackets involved. let me know if you hate it or love it.

soto

soto || 357 6th ave., ny, ny 10014 || 212.414.3088

the worst thing is to accidentally delete a perfectly fine post on one of my favorite japanese restaurants in the city. how, why did it happen. i blame word press. let’s start the new year right by correcting what was wrong with 2014 – the mysterious case of the missing soto blog post.

anyhey, please enjoy [again], this fabulous 2-michelin starred bundle of joy. they are creative with their dishes yet maintain a sense of traditional feel to it. don’t come here if you just want fresh fish over rice balls. nope. also, be prepared to be in shocking bright lighting as it is basically broad daylight here — [perfect for foodies & obnoxious photo-taking] therefore nice, casual dress is acceptable.

getting gossip from the mixologist

there was also a farewell gathering of the staff & etc for the pastry chef that day. it was fun eavesdropping like a creeper from the bar before dinner began.

20140930-150418.jpg

cocktail selection is on point. happy with the options listed. [unlike per se  #spoiledfoodieproblems]

20140930-150505.jpg

dehydrated tomato stuffed with lobster topped w/baby basil & cream

20140930-150932.jpg

to fill you in on the tasty filling

note: to give you an idea of their stalkery absolute attentiveness, they noticed i scraped the creamy top off to the side of the dish and asked if there was a problem with it. i let them know that i didn’t want too much of the cream, and that preference was duly noted for the later items. thanks guys!

20140930-150907.jpg

light soup made from the tomato they previously squeezed the juice out of

ode to a new york classic. this is when the secret ingredients show face:  cherry soda to the left, coffee soda to the right.

20140930-151126.jpg

this cucumber salad was for the [silly] ones who opted out of their AMAZING foie gras dish that day. pretty and healthy but not on the same page.

the dish of the night: foie gras.

20140930-153232.jpg

the beautiful, seared foie gras with chanterelles. amazing.

20140930-153251.jpg

“salad bar”

telling stories of the waldorf

20140930-153629.jpg

the waldorf salad + celery puree soup

curious to know how the celery soda would have tasted, we asked for a smidgen & they gave us a bottle. it was great, but cherry was surprisingly my favorite since they used fresh cherries.

20140930-153652.jpg

the sodas + fresh butter & bread

20140930-153724.jpg

20140930-154154.jpg

finally onto dessert…

20140930-154704.jpg

delicious dessert: butter cream, butter scotch, dehydrated milk, foam, crumble. yum.

20140930-155241.jpg

burning brain…

20140930-155306.jpg

charred brain…

20140930-155331.jpg

pretty

sometimes it can be fun in the kitchen…especially special tours of it.

20140930-155358.jpg

hey kitchen crew! you’re awesome.

20140930-155553.jpg

photos along the wall are their farmers and growers from whom they purchase their ingredients

20140930-160911.jpg

37 staff in the main kitchen + ms. expediter

expediter: kitchen manager aka bootcamp captain aka “hurry the eff up, are you a snail or are you a chef” [i’d imagine she yells this] who makes sure everyone is on task on time, down to every minute, every second, and ensures a sufficient amount of all ingredients necessary for the amount of diners every day.

20140930-162509.jpg

the new sous chef making a special icy cone treat

20140930-162538.jpg

we’re all kids again! snow cones, fancy ones.

as if our 4 hour dinner + kitchen tour wasn’t obnoxious grand enough, they relocated us to a pleasant after-the-never-ending-dinner private corner lounge where we can further lengthen our stay by indulging in more caffeine and a complimentary bottle of grappa. if only it were scotch…

20140930-162556.jpg

the lounging area

20140930-162638.jpg

sweet classic new york b&w cookies & pretzel infused with dark, milk, & white chocolates

20140930-162751.jpg

fresh homemade granola.

so good, all the squirrels in the city came running over.

20140930-162809.jpg

the [wrinkled] menu.

a fantastic journey it was — overall a worthwhile experience for a special occasion especially since it is like a classic broadway show + new york history 101 + foodie heaven + michelin snob all packed into one night. take her/him there. :D
