day two in brooklyn

no trip to brooklyn can be complete without a trip to my favorite donut shop on the planet. dunwell doughnuts is my happy place and on such a dismal day in american history i decided to eat my feelings.

fruity pebbles
heart of america (jelly filled)
thyme apricot – YUMMMM
buttered rosemary – YUMMMM
cinnamon sugar
peanut butter & jelly (my all time favorite)

for lunch my mom and i walked from grand central to the flatiron district to try by chloe! at the advice of yelp reviewers i knew it was important to snag a table as soon as one is available because it’s packed and luckily we were able to grab one right away.

i ordered a classic burger, 1/2 sweet potato fries 1/2 regular fries and then added the “crazy” which i have no idea what it really was – some sort of spicy aioli, chorizo, etc., and i have to try mac and cheese wherever i go.

everything was perfect. the fries were amazing. the burger was super tasty. the bacon on the mac and cheese was PHENOMENAL. holy moly. i guess it’s a good thing i don’t live in new york anymore because i’d be FAT and BROKE.

for our last supper we went back to modern love (ha ha shocking). i mean it’s why i went to brooklyn in the first place.

roasted brussel sprouts and bacon. shitake bacon is my soul mate. i can’t believe i just typed that. i might be turning over a new leaf with my hatred of mushrooms.

since i’m constantly making potpies (with isa’s olive oil crust alwaysssss) i figured i had to order one from her kitchen. it was everything i thought it would be. in love.

my mom ordered the hen of the woods piccata and said it was the best vegan meal she’s ever tasted. (she’s had a lot as i make her eat at vegan places constantly) she made me taste it and i have to say it was incredible. if you are lucky enough to visit modern love – please order it.

modern love is my new favorite vegan restaurant. in the country. #1. i’ll be back. ❤
