Every now and then, my husband and I like to go to Cafe Katja in the Lower East Side for some amazing, hearty Austrian comfort food. It's quite the neighborhood gem.
Emmentaler sausage with savoy cabbage and quark dumplings
The amazing beet salad...I used to detest beets (I never ate them growing up), but I have grown to love them.
A freshly baked pretzel with some tear-inducing mustard sauce on the side (I swear there's wasabi in it!). And of course a meal would not be complete without a sweet and slightly bitter ambrosial drink.
We passed by this gnarled and misshapen tree outside of Le Petit Puppy, an upscale puppy pet shop on Christopher Street in the Village.
Quite arachnid and creepy...
On an unrelated note, a reader asked me about my favorite brands. I've separated them into categories:
For inexpensive and trendy items: H&M and Zara
For basics: Club Monaco and Old Navy
For whimsical clothes and shoes: Prada and Miu Miu
For professional investment clothing: Fendi, YSL, and Oscar de la Renta
For accessories (shoes, bags, and belts): YSL, Fendi, Guiseppe Zanotti, Bottega Veneta, Chanel
Thanks to everybody who visits my blog! I really appreciate it. Please let me know what you think in a comment. I'd love to hear from all of you.
