Feet Beat

August 23, 2012


earlier this year, i decided to start a little project similar to a 365 photo project with photos just looking down at my feet. i thought it would be a fun and easy way to document a 365 project - all from the iphone. the project was short lived but i've been inspired by satsuki's feet beat pinterest board to maybe start it up again.

PrepKitchen Little Italy [Part Two]

February 15, 2012


on the way to the restroom at pkli you will pass a bunch of plates, all wil these funny animal portraits - they all made me chuckle.


of course can't write about prepkitchen without talking about what we had for lunch! so yummy pork tacos with grilled pineapple! we also tried a bunch of sandwiches including turkey sandwich, the cubana and the tuna sandwich – the tuna was our favorite. of course no lunch is complete until you have some dessert! salted caramel fudge brownie with ice cream and some new york style cheesecake (not pictured).

PrepKitchen Little Italy [Part One]

February 14, 2012


over the weekend i was finally able to check out new location of prepkitchen in little italy. i had high expectations, after seeing all of the tweets online i was so excited. i definitely was not disappointed – they did a spectacular job with the new space, beautiful light, nice wood work, with all sort of little details that i absolutely loved. pictured above is their 'private' dining space which was so lovely, i litereally had to take a moment to soak it all in.


see those business cards, yep the carved out some books to put those cards in - so clever!


perhaps one of my favorite touches of the restaurant were mason jars filled with herbs and spices. i wonder how much maintenance those need. more photos to come tomorrow – stay tuned!
