On Monday I was looking around Tribeca area and found this cute litte restaurant called Kitchenette to have a lunch.
I love those not-trying-to-be-too-fancy places, where you can just feel very cosy and homely. For example when you order a coffee they will bring you a generous cup full of just hot and simple coffee..and refill it whenever you want. After that I really don't feel like ever going to Starbucks again.
Of course it would have been nice to order something traditional, something 'American' but I went for a Mediterrenean salad and was very happy with my choice. I'm sure I'm going to re-make it at home, super-easy, just some greens, roasted eggplant and peppers, artichoke hearts, handful of fresh mozzarella, all tossed over with basil vinaigrette. I think I might have to go back there for a breakfast one day, because a herb and goat cheese omlette sounds just too good and I haven't had pancakes in a while... gingerbread ones with pumpkin butter would be nice as I'm already in a holiday mood.
