Yep, I am still talking about our weekend in NYC

Nope, not finished yet. I have ONE more post about NYC/Brooklyn for tomorrow, then I will be finished. Promise.

After Saturday's brunch, Eric and I headed into Manhattan to go shopping.
We stopped to grab some water, and I was pretty excited to see a cat chilling.

No lie, I miss my cats a lot when I leave, even for two days. So getting to see this kitty made me happy.

I was pretty jealous of the bike lanes in Manhattan.

Like I mentioned, we were on a mission to shop. We stopped by Moo Shoes in hopes of finding some shoes.

Love this store.

Plus it's filled with cats.

I left empty handed, but Eric picked up some nice dress shoes.

Babycakes just happens to be right around the corner, and I was not going to miss an opportunity to stuff my face with pastries.

Eric and I lucked out with a really short line. By the time we paid the line was out the door and into the street.

We got a red velvet cupcake and a carrot cake cupcake.

A wonder bun and a chocolate chip muffin.

The rest of the day was spent shopping for Eric. I actually bought NOTHING, but he came away with some really nice clothes!

Later in the evening with met up with one of Eric's old friends for a couple of drinks.
By the time we finished drinking we were starving.

Angelica Kitchen wasn't too far away, so we made our way over there hoping the wait for a table wouldn't be too long. We lucked out again and were given a short wait, so Eric went to buy a bottle of wine.

We started with an appetizer of cashew cream. This was amazing. The portion was small, but I liked that because I could enjoy it, but not get stuff (I have no self control over amazing food).

We also ordered some bread, which I smothered with the cashew cream from above.

For entrees Eric went with a special, Bell's Tempeh, a citrus-y tempeh with black rice.

I ordered the roasted vegetable salad, which came with hummus on two crostinis.

At this point I didn't think I could physically put any more food inside me, but there was no way I was passing up dessert.
We split orange poppyseed cake.

The food at Angelica Kitchen was amazing. I highly, HIGHLY, recommend it if you are ever in New York.

I used to literally work around the corner from Angelica and have never been! My friend brought some of their cornbread to work today, though... it was pretty fly.

thank you for sharing your NY trip! My bf and I are visiting there in October and I've already been planning what restaurants we're interested in LOL! I hope they'll still be there when we arrive because Portland vegan restaurants seem to close so quick. :(

Oh have so much fun on your trip! I think a lot of these places have been around for a while, so I bet they will still be open.

I love Angelica's Kitchen and of course Babycakes. I didn't realize Moo Shoes was close to Babycakes. I've never been, but next time I'm in the city, I'll have to stop in for shoes.
