Birerria at Eataly


Ok so I'm cheating just a bit. This isn't just our visit to Birerria at Eataly. It's
everything me and my brother did the first day we got in to New York but I
 couldn't figure out how to pack it all in and organize it all just so!

Me and my younger brother took the redeye out of Los Angeles in to New York
 to meet up with old friends and my older brother Dan, who had come up from
 D.C. for the weekend.

Me and my younger brother Connor arrived early in the morning, still sleepy and
 in desperate need of some coffee. But we had a jam packed schedule to stick to,
 so we headed to the Bronx to visit my old campus, Fordham University.


I loved Fordham and can honestly say going there was one of the best decisions.
It's amazing to see how it feels like nothings really changed, even though it's been
almost 3 years since graduating.



Ha! I was absolutely freezing while taking this.














After going through the old grounds, we walked to the Bronx Zoo. I was surprised
 to see how many animals were out and about! The zoo was practically empty and
 it was like we had the whole place to ourselves. After only getting about 3 hours of
 sleep, I ended up falling asleep in the reptile house. Does that make me a Slytherin?



 



My brother Connor loved the rhinos. He was so cute and just like a lil kid!



Tigers love snow.



We hurried and scurried back to the hotel in midtown to meet with my older brother
 Dan. And we promptly took a solid nap (the reptile one wasn't enough I guess or I
just really love sleeping). Then we headed back out to check out Birerria at Eataly!


So Eataly's like a giant whole foods or trader joe's but stocked with all
 Italian foods. It's got all the specialty mozzarella, red wine and Italian loaves
of bread you can want. Located right across from the Flatiron building, it's a cool
spot. My favorite part about it is the rooftop bar, Birrerria, a specialty wine and
 beer spot.

They stuff you full of loaves of bread and olive oil.



"It's good I lotioned my hands today. I'd be a great hand model." Ha! My older
brother was super proud of his hand modeling skills. Too bad my photo skills
 aren't up to match.


We feasted on brussel sprouts, meat and ricotta cheese with honey and walnuts.





Perfectly delectable. So much more to share and not even through the first day!

Hope everyone's having a great week.
