Autumn Sunday in New York

This past Sunday the weather was B-E-A-U-T-I-ful (!), so I went on a lovely day date with my even lovelier friend Michelle. We strolled around Central Park for several hours and took some gorgeous photos...
Then we paid a short visit to the MoMa, particularly to see the "Abstract Expressionist New York" exhibit, a part of which were Warhol's soups...and we all know how much Sasha likes her soups...
Then we had dinner at La Bonne Soupe (gee, there's really a theme emerging here, huh?) I've been there once before, though I had a little too much vin that time and don't remember what I ate exactly, but I do remember enjoying it! La Bonne Soupe is a relatively small, intimate French bistro, with a modest red awning. Their menu features classic French bistro dishes, like omelettes and crepes.
Michelle and I both ordered La Crepe Forestière, a crepe filled with thinly-sliced ham, mushrooms, bechamel sauce and Swiss cheese, which was served mesclun greens and a light lemon garlic dressing. ($13.95) The crepe was absolutely delicious and definitely hit the spot after a whole day of walking. It was also about the size of my head so it was very filling.

You ordered the best thing at this restaurant. It looks fantastic. Plus, I'm glad to see some French representation on your blog :)
