Why would you make a restaurant for only one week?

It's freezing cold in New York and I still can't find my camera cord (though to tell the truth, I haven't been looking that hard). But I still have a blog, so and when Meredith blogs every day, well darn it, I feel guilty for not doing the same. Peer pressure! I should have listened harder in those middle school assemblies.

I was running errands yesterday and stumbled across the Bon App├ętit Supper Club. Sponsored by the magazine and featuring take out food from an array of famous chefs, it has popped up in midtown Manhattan for one week (yes, just one week. I don't really understand why). Meredith and I tried to go on opening day (last Thursday), but it was too crowded and we went to the Burger Joint instead (and it was also crowded. But the food was great).

However, when I went by on Monday, it seemed fairly low key, so I snuck in and ordered the roast beef and arugula sandwich. It had a nice horseradish cream and the bread was nicely salted and baked with rosemary. I liked it.

I also got a little cake made from chocolate, hazelnuts and grapefruit, which sounded weird, but tasted nice. The citrus added a little something different. I want to go back and try some of their other things, but who knows if I'll be in the area again? Stupid one week restaurants. Oh well.

Glad to see you made it. Oh yeah- I couldn't understand that message you left me earlier. What was that about?
