Summer Streets and Top Chef Master

Last Saturday was a beautiful day here in New York. The temperature only reached the high 70's with no humidity. We gave Gavin the option of the beach or a bike ride. He chose a bike ride. He was so wise. It was a perfect day for a ride, especially since they closed down Park Avenue to cars from 7am to 1PM and opened it up to bikers and pedestrians. So, we rode through Central Park and over to Park Avenue
and then all the way downtown where we crossed over to Battery Park and ate lunch and played at Rockefeller Playground. !

We then took the West Side path all the way back up to our house. I think the trip was approximately 2o miles! We were exhausted, but we loved it.
Boyd and I actually went out that night. We went to see the new Highline Park, which is a park converted out of the old elevated train tracks down in the meatpacking district. We then stumbled into a fabulous restaurant which happened to be Jonathan Waxman's Barbuto Restaurant and since I am huge fan of Top Chef masters, I was thrilled!
