Donatella

Donatella Last week I had the pleasure of dining at Donatella, in Chelsea, along with Donatella Arpaia and fellow food bloggers. We were getting a taste of the summer menu plus some of the dishes from the regular menu. Each dish were expertly prepared by chef Jarett Appell. We were also lucky enough to have Chef Appell talk about the inspirations behind the new menu. Then pastry chef Andrea Jarosh presented us a plethora of crazy delicious desserts. This may just be one of my favorite 2.5 hour lunch and I can't wait to go back to try more!

To tell you the truth, I have always found Donatella Arpaia a little intimidating but that was all from watching her on TV being a judge on the Food Network. In reality and in person, she's super nice and such a great person to talk food with. DonatellaDonatella

The Treats Truck Stop

The Treats Truck Stop One of my favorite food trucks, The Treats Truck, finally debuted their shop in Carroll Gardens. The Treats Truck Stop is located on 521 Court St, just south of 9th St. Their grand opening will be this Saturday 5/12. Please go support one of the nicest food truckers in NYC.

I can already see myself in the shop loads of time because just look at how beautiful the light falls on the table and made all the treats POP. Great for photographers to make beautiful images.
