We didn’t have to worry about being killed by riptides and gale-force winds because we decided to stay on the Upper West Side for Labor Day weekend.
I love spending holiday and summer weekends at home sometimes. You can get into restaurants that usually only supermodels and famous people are allowed into on normal Saturdays. We went to Momofuku in the East Village, where I had the spiciest sausage dish known to mankind. This was washed down by a Compost Cookie at Momofuku Milk Bar next door. Best. Cookie. Ever. I know. It’s not on the Upper West Side. Click through for some images from the weekend:
