Our last day in New York came quicker than we would have hoped but we made the best of it. Our flight out of LGA was not until 3 o'clock so we had some time to check off a couple more NYC Bucket List items before we had to leave the city.
The first thing on our list was coffee, obviously!
We got our coffee to go so that we could walk around Central Park. I got a few photos of the lake, Skyped the husband and kid, and chugged the coffee.
We chose Russ & Daughters for brunch. The cafe has been on my "OMG, why haven't I been there yet" list for a while so we crossed over to the other side of the park and down to the basement of the Jewish Museum for our last proper meal in New York.
We got there before 11 o'clock so there was no wait, a brilliant move on our part because the place was packed by the time we left.
I ordered Schmalts and a Shot for my appetizer: a small platter consisting of herring, potatoes, white onions, and a shot of vodka. This dish made me feel like I was back at my family's dinner table. It was lovely.
For my actual meal, I ordered the Classic Board: Gaspe Nova smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomatoes, onions, and capers. So simple yet so good!
We took a bus back to the other side of town and had the best conversation with the bus driver. It was a wonderful send off as we prepared to head home to Charlotte.
The weekend in NYC was an absolute treat with my two best girls and I can't wait to go back!
