NY, Boston & Washington Tríp highlights

After a few days of travelling up and down the US East coast (New York, Boston, Washington & Miami), some photographic highlights of my trips:

1. Great Food I ate (apart from the independently reviewed dinner experiences at Per Se and 11 Madison)

This was a simple salad of roasted carrots, but carrots have never tasted this good!!!!

Gluten free Red Velvet Cupcake @ Babycakes in NYC – I had heard a lot from babycakes and tried their recipes many times, but had never actually been to the store – it was remedied this trip and I have to say it was fabulous! ( I also took home gluten-free cookies and apple loaf and those were great too)

Dinner at Marea in NYC – A new restaurant for me and I have to say I was very impressed, the food was Fabulous! A definite must for Fish lovers. Their crudo selection is amazing and it is a hard time choosing what to eat everything looks soo good. My two favorite dishes below (of the three that I ordered jajaja)

In the cool NYC discoveries category – Me and my sister went to Dry Bar … it is a cool concept where all they do is blow dry your hair, no cut, color or nails etc. The place is beautiful, I loved the hair menus, they bring you mimosas and they have docking stations to charge your iphone.
