Etcetera | Friday Fanfare, 2012.10.05

It's been a crazy week of nommin' for me. Marcus and I celebrated his birthday by taking two days off, to make it a four-day long extravaganza. It was so much fun to check out some new spots (Sakagura, David's Tea, and Maison Kayser) and to visit some old haunts (read: Dos Toros, Eisenberg's, and Argo Tea), so be on the look out for some new posts coming your way. In other news, this week Alice and I also finally booked our trip to Charleston for early November, so I am super psyched and pumped for that -- let the planning commence! :)

Happy Friday to you, and have a spectacular weekend!

Our one-year old kitten, Neutrino, just being her silly ol' self.

This week's noteworthy eats:
  • fish and chips along with a fried Mars bar from A Salt and Battery 
  • sugar doughnut from Balthazar Boulangerie
  • matzoh ball soup from Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop
  • hazelnut Earl Grey teapuccino from Argo Tea
  • Marcus's birthday dinner at Sakagura, including uni soba (homemade cold buckwheat noodles with fresh sea urchin sashimi and sea urchin sauce)
  • pancakes with wild Maine blueberries and warm maple butter along with sugar-cured bacon from Clinton Street Baking Co.
  • crispy chicken tacos from Dos Toros Taqueria (twice!)
  • chocolate-covered pistachio gelato bar from Popbar
  • hot long life oolong tea from David's Tea
  • macarons (gianduja, almond, green tea, yuzu, pistachio, pear, and spiced chai) from Bisous Ciao
  • French onion soup and croissants at Maison Kayser
  • pistachio-crusted sea scallops with roasted broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes
