Restaurant Review- Petrossian NYC

After reviews, my cousin in NYC and I decided to have a family dinner with my uncle/aunt who flew in from Korea, at Petrossian.  Best known for Caviar, Petrossian offers what I'd call "French fusion"

Not only is their restaurant in a beautiful building on 57th, but they have quite a selection! My uncle was the only one to try the caviar and he said he liked it :)

The best part?! I saw the Geico commercial again last night! It was filmed at Petrossian lol! 

The Plaza Hotel, Home Alone 2 Style

Christmas at The Plaza Hotel, NYC

My Christmas Childhoods were always full of Family & Midnight Mass! Secretly inside, I wished for one Christmas where I could be "Home Alone 2" stuck alone in NYC renting a suite at The Plaza Hotel!

Obviously, that never happened, but until this year- I've always wondered what Christmas at The Plaza Hotel would be like!

Then I realize, Christmas is not much different at The Plaza than it is anywhere else! Regardless, it was still nice for Mike to take me to a Christmas Date here :)

I will always be grateful for the Christmas years with family, rather than lost in NYC with two burglars wanting to destroy me

Christmas Party; Meat Packing District NYC

Mike works for a truly amazing company! They flew everyone (who are not permanently in NYC) to the Big Apple for their annual Christmas Spectacular!

This year, they rented a soundstage in the Meat Packing District! What an endless list of specialty drinks & enormous supply of unique & delicious appetizers!

We all stayed at the Martime Boutique Hotel in Chelsea! 

I'm most proud of these shoes! I wore them the entire night!

Wanted: Restaurants with Fireplaces!

After long days of work in the snow, all I want is a cozy evening by a fireplace!

We looked everywhere and found a few options! Natalie and I decided to wine & dine at The Dublin Pub in Dayton!

I loved the French onion soup in particular and our little nook with a fireplace! 

another great option is one of my favorite chain restaurants: Panera! I love their honey ginseng tea, French onion soup, spinach & artichoke soufflé & spinach salad! It's not as cozy as Dunlin Pub partially because you feel rushed to leave all the time!

Christie's Philly Bridal Shower

My little sis is getting married!!!!! Little Christie is my adopted sorority from University of Virginia! For obvious reason, she became my little- everyone always said we were so much alike! Now all grown up, Dr. Christie Kim is getting married in two weeks!!!!

Christie's bridal shower was held at Miss Rachel's Pantry in Philadelphia! It's a small vegan restaurant with lots of character! I was even full after lunch!

It was a very girly bridal shower with lots of colors, games & French maccaroons!

We all can NOT wait until California!
