Prabal Gurung for Target collection over the weekend? I schlepped out to Brooklyn and found a few cute pieces to brighten up my closet. I admit these are a wee bit less adventurous that most of the line, but I shook up the endless blacks and greys in the office today with the yellow pullover: "Only you could pull off that yellow!"

Debating the Deli from Jewish Daily Forward on Vimeo.
Well, I'm properly starving after watching the Debating the Deli. (Lingering curiosity--> was recording this video simply an excuse to get together and eat some delicious sandwiches?) You might check out my thoughts on Katz's in this post from a few Decembers back: navigate here.

After hitting up the Lululemon warehouse sale and Target on Long Island (things Manhattan denizens do with excitement comparable to kiddos in candy stores when they have a Zip Car) we decided to pause for a quick bite before heading back to the the city.
By Foursquare suggestion, we found ourselves at City Cellar wine bar. The venue boasts a dramatic dining area with transparent green curtains cascading from vaulted ceilings, an over sized wine fridge as a backdrop to the bar and cozy lighting.
Our server brought us warm rosemary and sea salted bread with whipped sweet cream butter to nibble while we perused the menu options. I wouldn't typically mention the bread, but this was superb with a crusty shell and soft and fresh tasting center.
To share, we opted for the Calamari with garlic-lemon aioli and tomato chile sauce and the Kobe beef sliders with Wasabi mayo, aged white cheddar and Togarashi. The calamari came fresh and appropriately firm. The aioli more fitting that the tomato-chile sauce, which tasted more of standard marinara. The sliders were quite excellent with their black sesame seed brioche buns and the meat prepared medium rare.
Albeit a bit of a trek from the city, I'd love to return and explore more of the menu. The venue is a fantastic spot for a date or even a girl's night out.
