(Don't Be) Too Timid and Squeamish: Go to New York for French Fries

Go to New York for French Fries

We had a fun day in New York City. First stop: the Grand Central Oyster Bar for a pan roast, a deliciously rich and decadent soup. We had ours with oysters and scallops.

Oyster Pan Roast and Harpoon Oyster Stout

We walked through Times Square and went to the Discovery Times Square Pompeii exhibit.

We took the subway down to the East Village.

A Good Friday procession
We had Belgian fries at Pommes Frites.

There are a large selection of sauces. So many choices! We tried:
  • Sweet Mango Chutney Mayo
  • Smoked Eggplant Mayo
  • Peanut Satay
  • Pesto Mayo
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • and good ol' ketchup
The eggplant sauce was my favorite. There are many more sauces to try if we ever make it back. (I'm looking at you, Pomegranate Teriyaki.)

Nearby, we stopped in the historic McSorley's Old Ale House, a crowded, noisy pub with sawdust on the floor. The only beer to order is "light" or "dark."

Subway fun
