Greetings from SoHo! I’ll be in The Big Apple all this week, and I want to do a super quick update on my first night in New York City. Anytime I get a postcard from a place I’ve been and loved, I like to share it with you! My “postcard update” for this trip is from Ed’s Lobster Bar, a restaurant that’s just a few blocks away from the NOMO SOHO, where I’m staying the first few days of this trip (come back to see my hotel review).
There are so many awesome restaurants in SoHo! This will make it mighty hard to get the toned abs I told you guys a couple weeks ago I’m working on getting. For my first night in SoHo, I decided to check out Ed’s Lobster Bar, because it was highly recommended by a local I spoke to (and you guys know my favorite recommendations always come from locals). Here’s a review of what I devoured at this restaurant.
What I Ordered and Loved:
Lobster Ravioli: DROOL. Just thinking about this dish is literally making my mouth water! Lobster ravioli is one of my favorite dishes, and this is hands down the best lobster ravioli I’ve ever had in life. If I had to guess, it was probably the thick, tasty mushroom cream sauce that set it apart from all the rest. Oh, and I was told afterwards that this is also Ed’s fave.
Blueberry Crème Brulee: I was scared I would hate this. I love crème brulee, so I just knew the blueberries would mess it up. But, to my pleasant surprise it wasn’t bad! It was just different, but certainly not terrible as I was anticipating. Will I be putting blueberries in my crème brulee from now on? Probably not. When it comes to this particular dessert, I must say, prefer it the classic way.
Whiskey and Lemonade Cocktail: Don’t ask me the name of it, because I was a little too tipsy to remember. I just know it was mixed with whiskey, lemonade, and a bunch of fanciness. The bartenders were fantastic, and they really know what they’re doing. Can’t say that about every bartender I meet.
And the lucky recipient of this postcard will be my dear friend Ernest. He was the last person to send ME a postcard, so I’m going to return the favor and send this one on its way over to him.
That’s my quick update from SoHo – check back in later for more glimpses into my trip to NYC and to see a review of this super comfortable hotel room I’m staying in. Until next time, happy travels everyone!
