Photo Gallery Thursday "Eli Zabar in Grand Central Terminal"

I really love Grand Central Terminal. The area is great too as not very crowded with tourists, lots of folks who work in the city are buzzing around. These sweet cookies are from Eli Zabar, a New York City vintage gem, so much fun! What great gifts to take back home to family and friends! Just remember, the week is almost over, tomorrow is Friday! Hope your day is fabulous !!

The Hotel Edison

The Hotel Edison is a very historic hotel located in the theater district. Opened in 1931, the lights were turned on by "the" Thomas Edison, hence the name. It could hold 1,000 guests on 26 floors. It is Art Deco at it's finest, and I just love Art Deco everything! I was happy to pop in here prior to seeing It's Only a Play
When I walked in, I found these amazing murals. I just loved them!! They really speak Art Deco and if they sold them as prints, I would buy in a heartbeat!! 

Can you find the Simpsons in this one? 

Cool lobby, right? 

Being a Yankee fan, this one was just pure joy! 

I had to try to show you what was around the mural as it was so fabulous !! 
I want one of these phones!! 
Cafe Edison made an appearance in a Sex and the City episode in Season 5 as Carrie dined there. Prices seems pretty affordable for New York City, I will have to try to pop in again for a bite to eat. 

I hope you enjoyed this little trip to Hotel Edison. A classic hotel which just screams New York.

Bantam Bagels Review

I was contacted by Bantam Bagels a few months back to see if I wanted to give them a try. I am a bagel lover, but try not to eat too many due to all the carbs and calories. These bagel balls, with various fillings, are a great way to enjoy a bite of a bagel, without eating the whole thing. I thought they were a great idea. The bagels were tasty, however, I thought the fillings could have been a bit more pronounce. They are also available on QVC which has a very large gourmet food inventory. Here is some more info on these little guys for you: 

- Bantam Bagels, mini filled bagels, that have changed New Yorkers perspective on the classic New York City bagel, announced nationwide shipping. Different than any other New York bagel, these bite sized  wonders known as "Bantams," are filled instead of topped, allowing for easy eating on-the-go. The brand has been changing the way New Yorkers bagel since opening their first location in the West Village last September. With their new shipping model in place,  anyone in the US will have a chance to bite into New York City's most beloved Bleecker Street "mini filled bagel balls" The new online ordering system can be accessed on the Bantam Bagels website,

 iconic food staple, with people across the country," said Co-Owner and Founder Nick Oleksak. Bantam Bagels will also be launching a complete rebrand at the beginning of the month which will include a new logo and website layout.
