our day today in manhattan

1 Jul

today is our last full day in nyc, we head home tomorrow.  we had a blast!  after jen’s training sessions today, we went for a 3 mile run in central park.  then, we headed down to the chelsea area of nyc & shopped for a while before dinner.  found a great deal on lucky jeans!  almost 75% off!  we had reservations tonight at mesa grill, bobby flay’s restaurant.  it was AWESOME!  ryan & i are big bobby flay fans.  we watch all of his shows & think he is a great chef.  unfortunately he was not there tonight…they said he was recovering from an iron chef battle this morning.  anyways…we had a shrimp+roasted garlic corn tamale for appetizer.  i had the spice rubbed ny strip steak w/smoked tomatoes with ancho breadcrumbs & creamy cilantro vinaigrette.  jen had the ancho-chile honey glazed salmon with cilantro pesto mashed potatoes.  it was amazing food!  we LOVED every bite.  we had happy plates at the end of the meal.  oh, and for dessert…chocolate+dulce de leche layer cake with tres leche icecream.  after dinner, we headed back to the hotel by way of a little more shopping.  🙂  we had a fun day.  glad i got to come on this trip w/my sister! its been a blast.  can’t wait to see my handsome hubby tomorrow night & my beautiful girls!!!  here are some pics of the day…
