    A West Side Trek to Gotham West Market

    When Gotham West Market opened a few months ago, I knew I had to get there soon. It has a lot of what I love about New York: great food and chefs, cool but under the radar location.

    It's been referred to as a "food court" and with that, I picture Auntie Anne's soft pretzels, Chick-Fil-A, and the general scent of fried food in the air. This is no food court - it's a smorgasbord of incredible, many New York-centric, vendors, eight to be exact.

    The Brooklyn KitchenYou'll want to browse at The Brooklyn Kitchen, an offshoot of their original store in Williamsburg. There are tons of made-in-Brooklyn items from pickles and peanut butter to salmon and cheese, but just tons of great products and a fun slate of cooking classes. 

    Inside Brooklyn KitchenCourt Street Grocers, another Brooklyn implant, serves sandwiches. El Comado is fabulous for tapas from Chef Seamus Mullen, who does incredible tapas at one of my favorites, Tertulia in the West Village. And foodies are trekking here specifically for ramen from Ivan Ramen, his first opening in the U.S. (there are two in Japan).

    It's an easy walk from Times Square on the far west side of Manhattan, technically in Hell's Kitchen. If you only have a limited time in New York, I'd skip it. But if you're on a return trip or interested in seeing what's new in NYC, it's definitely worth it!

    Friday Links to Love

    Tuesday coffee meeting with this viewIt's been a crazy week that I'm glad to say good-bye to. But a highlight last night was seeing Love, Loss, & What I Wore with my pals Dana and Valerie.  The show was written by Nora and Delia Ephron and rotates a cast of five women each month.  It's in a tiny theater on West 43rd Street and runs just 1.5 hours. Plus the itsy-bitsy, miniature, gorgeous Giada DeLaurentiis was at the show!

    Esca, a Mario Batali restaurant, is a great pre- or post-theater choice. This pomegranate bellini could go head-to-head with my favorite peach bellini any day.

    This week, I loved:

    Bowlmor Lanes Times Square

    I've never been the biggest fan of bowling (really it's the shoes), but after going to my cousin's 7th-birthday party at Bowlmor Lanes in Times Square, I might start corralling my friends together for bowling nights. The newest branch of Bowlmor features 50 lanes, New York City-themed lounges, a restaurant/grill, and bar. 

    My favorite NYC-themed lounge was Chinatown: 

    But there was also Central Park (see the grass?): 

    And the Times Square themed lanes:
