New York Nibbles - Hey Chubba-Bubba, Don't You Know There is More to Do in This City Than Eat?

This yummy glass of calorie-filled goodness is a Georgia Crisp (Vodka, Lime, Fresh Peach Puree, Topped with Champagne).   Perfect for any fatty looking to enjoy a fruity drink with their brunch.
Can be found in the West Village / Meatpacking District at  

 You should never drink (in the morning) on an empty stomach.  Solution???
 A meat & cheese board of course! Aged Gouda, Fontina Val D’ Aosta, Black Forest Ham & Biellese Salami with Cucumber, Tomato, Bread & Vermont Butter.

Left:  Any place that literally has meat hanging from the walls is definitely home to me!
Right:  Marinaded Hanger Steak Salad with Arugula & Black Olive Salsa Verde

Left:  Handmade Ravioli Stuffed with Butternut Squash (found at a hole-in-the-wall in Little Italy)
Right:  One of my favorite desserts of all time Café Affogato (gelato & espresso)
The name literally means "drowned in coffee" and it is uh-mazing!

This will be a simple one to make at home.   My gluttony actually subsided for one meal!
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Plate with Feta, Cucumber, Sun Dried Tomato, and Pita Bread - yum! - Upper West Side

                                                        Cafe Cluny - West Village
                       Who says having a cocktail                               Pumpkin & Goat Cheese Fritters
                  at noon on a Monday is a problem?                (with warm lentil salad & smoked paprika)
