Alright, I still don't have a food post ready, so I thought I'd share a bit about food and drink I had while in NYC. Again, these are just straight out of my camera; no editing so I apologize in advance. Some of these should have been cropped.
Yes, that is a bone in the above photo. The bar had bone marrow on the menu, in addition to other typical pub fare. I was very skeptical about it, I can't even eat meat off a bone, why would I ever eat what's inside the bone.
My sister-in-law (SIL) is the one who convinced us to try it. I thought what the heck, how often does a person have the opportunity to try bone marrow.
My SIL prepared it for me. First you use the stick to pull out a piece of marrow, which is kinda gummy, plop it on toast, then you top it with cucumber relish and a bit of sea salt.
I was not a fan. I couldn't really taste much, but I really disliked the texture; too mushy for me. But at least I tried it.
Now, let me tell you about the bar, because it had great ambiance.
They have a wide variety of great beers and microbrews....
...but since I was battling a sore throat I ordered a hot toddy.
If you're in NYC and find yourself in the financial district this pub would be a great place to pop in.
