Lunch with Rod

Eataly has never disappointed. And just as well. Doing lunch with Rod Quinn in NYC for the second time in a decade, I only wanted success. And interesting, delicious, fun, and with just the right amount of buzz. No pressure! The Flatiron was an excellent starting point. From there we could do Eisenberg’s, Chanson, City Bakery, Eataly rooftop, Edition Hotel, Maison Kaiser, Beecher’s, Dough, LA Burdick or even Shake Shack in Madison Park. We could have burgers, pastrami on rye, pretzel croissants, homemade pasta, oven baked pizza or something really flash. Like wild Alaskan salmon with lemon scented Spring vegetables… You can only have lunch once. Eataly it was!

    Gabrielle , you are looking New York good. Rod looks like he has been “starving himself” so he may enjoy all the culinary delights that NYC has to offer. Enjoy your break with Gabrielle, Rod.

    Dear Gabrielle, is that Rod looking happy. What did they put in his food! I am pleased the meal went well. And I trust you both had an enjoyable catch up. Is that beautiful building adjacent the Broadway? Bye for now, Peter.

    • Hello Peter – Yes, Rod was in excellent spirits which the food – and New York – no doubt contributed to! We met in front of the Flatiron Building on the corner of 23rd, Broadway and 5th, just up the road from Union Square – and from Beecher’s, where you might remember we had a very good coffee a couple of years ago. That part of town is pumping these days – pity about the orange traffic control in the background, but I wanted to get a shot in an iconic setting. And where in NYC can you get a clear shot…?! 33*C here today so will be envisaging a cool sea breeze from Henley Beach…
