eataly {birreria}

Jacob and I flew up to New York for the weekend in honor of my grandfather's 80th birthday. Aside from spending a lot of time at the old folks home, and getting to see The Hunger Games {!!!!} we were also able to steal a little time for a train ride into the city {it was Jacob's first time}. We didn't have too much time, so we spent the afternoon strolling through midtown, eating and drinking beer. The weather was amazing, and it was so cute to watch Jacob steal looks up at the buildings, he didn't want to seem like a tourist but couldn't help being in awe of how big and beautiful everything was.

We were able to go to Eataly, which was amazing, one of those places that makes us angry that we don't live a big city. We headed up to Birreria, the rooftop restaurant on the 14th floor. It's a collaboration between Mario Batali, Dogfish Head, and Del Borgo Brewery. It was awesome, and the perfect day for outdoor drinking and eating. Jacob had the blood sausage, while I enjoyed the pork shoulder. After, we went downstairs to the market and had some espresso {our new obsession}.

It was such a great day in the city, I can't wait to take him back!
