Thursday evening after work I met up with my friend Mallory at Chelsea Market. She works in the offices above the shops, and knows them well. At our first stop: Buon Italia.
The good stuff at Dickson's Farmstand Meats.
We went to Mallory's apartment in Williamsburg.
A small sampling of her cookbook library.
I was in charge of drinks. Strongbow cider in chilled glasses.
We ate BLT salads and played with her two cats talking girl-talk. After awhile the boys showed up and crashed our girls night but that made it even more fun.
