Wednesday in NYC

We met with the design firm in the morning for a couple hours. They showed us 8 (!) concepts, all very good, and we had a good discussion about them. We left thinking it’d be hard to choose between a few of them.

After that, we walked to Eataly for lunch at Birreria. Ben Brotman met us there and we had beers and lunch.


Then we all went to The High Line park for a walk and to the Bier Garten at The Standard for a beer (where the waitress thought an Oktoberfest and a Hefeweizen are the same thing).

Then we all went to The Ginger Man for more beers.

Ben left to take the bus back home and Gay and I went to Nougatine for dinner. We happened to watch the documentary Somm on the plane ride and when the sommelier came over she was wearing her Advanced Sommelier pin on her lapel – she had just passed the test on Friday – and we had a fun conversation about that with her. I’m not much of a wine person but I am impressed with the dedication a sommelier has to go through (and pass!) those tests.
