A Late Chelsea Market Lunch


I really love New York. I haven’t been here in a long time! The energy is addicting and revitalizing.

Before Tina and I met up for lunch I headed into the Chelsea Market to waste a little time. The market smelled so good, and I can’t believe I had never been there before.

I ended up in a large Italian market where I found the Flott brand of canned tuna- imported from Italy. It is my aunt’s favorite brand, and she and my nonna swear by it!

I bought 5 cans.

I personally find it hilarious that so far in NYC I have bought Christmas ornaments and canned tuna. Very random.

When I headed back to the hotel I was texting with Meghann. Little did I know she, her mom, and her twin brother were sitting in the lobby! We hung out while I waited for Tina and Meghann waited for her room. Meghann let me try one of her One Lucky Duck goodies. It was very interesting, and not what I expected at all. It almost tasted a bit like chocolate protein powder? I think after a bag I would really like them, but it might take that long to become obsessed.

Anyway, Tina and I finally headed off to lunch in the Chelsea Market. We strolled the different shops and cafes before deciding on Friedmans lunch. The menu had a lot of great selections in the sandwich and salad genre.

I ordered a grilled chicken salad with dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, carrots, avocado and balsamic vinaigrette. It was absolutely delicious and just the healthy lunch I needed.

They served the water in wine bottles whose labels had been removed. I will definitely do this at a rustic dinner party soon! I loved the simple presentation.

When I first had walked in all of the chocolate at … smelled so good, but I am very happy we ended up at Friedmans. I would definitely go back!

Back at the hotel I was going to head up directly to my room to change for the gym, but the PH button in the elevator was calling our names. I have heard a lot about the gorgeous penthouse floor bar, and I had to see it. When Tina and I headed up there who did we see? Meghann! Small hotel! We got a few shots outside. New York is really beautiful, isn’t it?

The gym at the hotel is pretty small, but I have come to expect that from hotels! I got my three miles in (24:17- record treadmill time for me) and did a few strength moves. I had just the right amount of time for a workout and a shower!

This trip has really been incredible. I am so thankful to Electrolux and Foodbuzz for this opportunity. It is now Tuesday afternoon (I have a lot of blogging to catch up on already it seems) and we are about to head over to Kelly’s Cake Off For A Cause. I hope my team wins! We will really be depending on your votes, but until then, send us some good cake decorating karma!
