Wendy’s Birthday Brunch at Riverpark…

Posted in Because I'm Fat, Blogosphere, Friends & Familia by yoshi on October 10, 2011

Yesterday a bunch of my girls and I went to Tom Colicchio’s Riverpark restaurant for brunch to celebrate Wendy’s birthday. The weather was absolutely beautiful and thanks to Simone, we were able to get seated perfectly hahaha!

As usual, my girls arrived in style (and pretty much on time – WHOA!). L-R: Vernie, Louise, Simone, Michelle, Christine, Wendy, Me! *Not pictured, Jen because she had to catch a flight to Paris lol*

There's Jen in the middle hehe!

We were all starving and the menu looked delectable so we went all in and ordered almost one of each dish =)

Salted/Seasoned watermelons - THESE WERE SOOOOO JUICY AND LOVELY!

Avocado topped toast - NOM NOM NOM

Christine and I had Smoked Trout Cake

Of COURSE Wendy had the fried chicken biscuit LMAO!!!!

Simone had the burger - yummmmm

Vern had the Shrimp and Grits

Louise had the hearty Sausage Biscuit

Jen and Michelle had the BLT Sandwich

For dessert, we graciously received a sample of fried donuts, sorbets, ice creams, and baked bananas, compliments of Riverpark! Free desserts – YOU HAD ME AT FREE! ❤ ❤ ❤

The brunch was fabulous and the conversations were endless, obviously! With the view overlooking the East River, of course we had to take advantage and take some photos!

Here’s one thing you may or may not know about me by now. I’m one of those friends who hangs out and then disappears for a few days, weeks, months, or even years before coming back into the mix. Why? I’m not actually sure, I get super busy with work, then I don’t feel like hanging out, or I just don’t want to go out past 9pm, which most of my friends do hahaha – total Lola status.

Anywho, I FINALLY got to have dinner with my girls Simone and Christine (last time we were all together it was at the Eclipse movie bahahaha). We enjoyed a healthy-ish dinner at Pylos, a Greek restaurant in the East Village. The decor was beautiful and the food was quite tasty!!!

I don’t remember what we ordered hehehe…

After scarfing down our dinner, we walked across the street to Butter Lane. Right when you take that first step into this charming cupcake shop, the scent of wonderful baked goods hits your nostrils and you’re instantly craving for a cupcake…. or 3!!! I was so stuffed, however, that I actually left with only one bite of Simone’s banana cake topped with salted caramel and chocolate ❤

Simone and Christine!
