New York Restaurant Week – this time, Toqueville

I had the green and white asparagus with black truffle vinaigrette and loved it. White asparagus and truffles are made for each other. My friend had the chilled pea soup and in her opinion it lacked something, maybe a touch of mint could have been great. We both got the soft shell crab, crunchy deliciousness. For dessert, a ricotta mousse (did panna cotta go out of style?)   with a wonderful trio of berries: marinated strawberries, fresh blackberries and a raspberry sauce, and a chocolate millefeuille (since when are 2 layers of chocolate and mousse mille-feuille?)

A nice lunch, but I don’t feel compelled to go back anytime soon.


River to River Festival

The River To River Festival is Lower Manhattan’s largest FREE summer arts festival featuring music, film, dance, theatre, art and play elements in a variety of public venues that canvases the beautiful backdrop of Downtown New York-from Chambers Street down to Battery Park and across the island from the Hudson River to the East River.”

Here are pictures of Brooklyn’s own STREB – Human fountain, and The Three Belles of the Australian Strange Fruit in a performance held at The World Financial Center on July 16th, 2011.
