This trip was especially special as my lovely sister was nominated for Best New Voice in the Saveur Blog Awards. Many of you graciously spent your time to vote for her (Much Appreciated By the WAY).
We left our husbands and children behind and decided to take on this town. Food being our main focus, it was almost too overwhelming. Two girls from Utah, two very different life paths, one common interest: Good Food!
Our first morning, we both woke with excitement as we were eager to walk the streets of Manhattan. The first stop on our agenda was finding that truly amazing cup of coffee. As we meandered the streets, attempting to find our bearings against the tall metal landscape, we anticipated finding a coffee shop we saw on yelp. A divine intervention occurred and a lovely local stopped us as it was apparent that we were "lost". I said we were looking for coffee at said location, he shook his head and said, "No". Stunned I wasn't quite sure how this was going to go, he then proceeded to say, "You want the best coffee? You are already here" and pointed behind us. There before our eyes was in fact an amazing shop Little Collins, and yes the coffee was amazing.
