My New York City weekend (this past weekend, yes, but really, just about any weekend):

1. A trip to Dicksons Farmstand Meats to pick up some sausage and spaetzle for a lazy Sunday night dinner.  The butchers were trimming meat in the back area, and I snapped a quick pic.  I’ve only purchased the cured meats there (their guanciale is wonderful), but I need to try some of their meat some time soon.   Such a great little store and awesome resource.

2. The Afterschool Special at Marshall Stack.  It wouldn’t be a weekend afternoon if I didn’t veg out part of the time at the Stack.  Yes, I am a broken record.

3. Speaking of broken records: I need to do a blog post where I include every photo I’ve ever taken of the eggs all’Amatriciana dish at Maialino.  There are a lot of these photos out there, mostly because brunch at Maialino with Mark has become something of a monthly tradition; heck, I even had this dish on Christmas morning.  No joke.  It’s so lovely, so incredibly genteel, to nibble on pizza bianca, with a little sea salt sprinkled on top for good measure, while watching the passersby along Gramercy Park.  This past Sunday was no different; the amatriciana, as always, was sublime.

    Wow, so you’re a regular at Maialino. I’ve only been there once for brunch. Liked the unlimited bread service…well, that is if you’re ‘thick-skinned’ enough to ask for another basket. 🙂
