Hey there..How are you?
Check out my response below. Philly also has pleny of places to eat!
Well, back from NY city 100 pounds heavier!
The convention was awesome. Which I knew it would be.
More importantly, the food!
We ate (meat eating friend - but not a big meat eater) at Candle Cafe the first day for lunch. AWESOME - as usual. Then the SAME night we went to Candle 79. Again, AWESOME in a very nice atmosphere. I have been to both of these places before, so the great food and EXCELLENT service was expected. I truly believe their service is the best in the city.
Friday night - GOBO. FABULOUS also.
Saturday night - Dragon Fly - Dragin Fly has items for the meat eater, vegetarian and vegan. It is a bar/restaurant type atmosphere. The bar is seperated from the dining room with a wall that has a beautiful aquarium in it. So you will not feel like you are at the bar. Very nice and very pleasant employees and SUPER FAST SERVICE!
LOL LOL LOL LOL LISTEN TO THIS!
After Dragon Fly we walked up to Red Bamboo because I knew that they had Danielle's (Vegan Treats) desserts there. I ordered 3 desserts that myself and my friends could all split. So, bought them and left, took a 20 10-12 minute taxi ride back to the Marriott Marqui, went up to our 10th floor room. FIRST, thing I did was open the bag and break ou the desserts - BUT I FROZE! The girls thought something was wrong - AND THEY WERE RIGHT!
I thought my heart fell to the floor!
Why? - you may be asking......BECAUSE THEY WERE ONLY SLICES!
LOL LOL LOL LOL
I am used to the whole (mine) pie or cake straight from Vegan Treats. When you go to Vegan Treats they do not sell by the piece, they sell by the whole cake/pie. She does have large/regular style pies and cakes and minis. I get a BUNCH of th minis! So, now you can imagine my surprise when I opened up my goodies and I had only a MORSEL of what i am used to.
So, any of these restaurants are fabulous and my instructors who I took LOVED the food and said they NEVER imagined that our food could be soooo good!
