I wouldn’t exactly call The Donut Pub a restaurant, but if donuts are your thing this is the place for you. I happened upon it on my way to see a Banksy and since I’ve been having a fanatical craving for donuts lately I had to go in. The inside looks like an old school diner and there are dozens of donut flavors to choose from, including a deal where you can get a donut and a coffee for about $2.00. I went for a classic chocolate sprinkle donut that was crispy, fluffy, and one of the best choices I made all day.
I love the Murray’s location at Grand Central Market so my friends and I have been wanting to try the new Cheese Bar location in Greenwich Village for a while. Finally, we went for happy hour and it was amazing. The deal is 10$ cheese flights (aka three cheese and pairings) and 2$ off of drafts and wine. I can’t remember exactly what the names of the cheeses were but the gouda paired with the caramel spread was delicious. We also had a sheep (maybe) cheese paired with pickled carrots and a brie with apricot jam. I loved the cool interior and I can’t wait to go back for brunch – or just more cheese! P.S. If you’re looking for a great cheese to try, I recommend La Tur.
Banksy is doing a residency in New York for the month of October so I had been waiting for the moment where I would finally be able to see one of his works in person. Unfortunately, most of them have been getting defaced rather quickly so I haven’t had much luck. That is until today, when I casually checked the Banksy NY website and saw that he had just posted a new one in TriBeCa. Naturally, I used my lunch break to rush downtown and found a crowd of people hovered over the tiny spray painting of the New York skyline and the Twin Towers. It was a total frenzy and people were taking zillions of photos (including myself). I even super-awkwardly asked a girl to take a photo of me with the graffiti. I’m going to make an effort to continue looking for more of his stuff while he’s here, so check back!
