NYC meets Vienna

New_museumCan't believe it's already Sunday evening again. Somehow time tends to fly even more over the weekend. Went to NYC yesterday for the day. First we checked out the new New Museum which opened on December 1st. Definitely an interesting place, very modern. On the 7th floor they have a Skywalk where you can go outside and have neat views of the city. We took some pictures, if you want to see them just click here.

After the museum we headed to Brooklyn to try Cafe Steinhof, an Austrian restaurant I found online. I am always excited when I find Austrian restaurants. :) I really enjoyed the place (very hip/funky cross between NYC and Vienna) and the food was very yummy. I had soup, Wiener Schnitzel (with cucumber salad and parsely potatoes) and Malakoff torte for dessert. Oh and Gruener Veltliner (white wine). Heaven!

Today I tried to do a little spring cleaning, got all my spring deco + candles out and got rid of some other clutter around the house. Right now I am burning "Cucumber & Cantaloupe + Honeydew Melon Swirl" in the bedroom, "Green Grass" in the livingroom and "Mediterranean Cypress" in the kitchen.

Mail update. Tomorrow a letter are going out to: Lotte/Denmark. Received letters from/still owe replies to: Carmen/Malta, Alex/Germany and Jetta/Finland.

It sounds like a great day. You always talk about the nicest restaurants. I'm guessing that there aren't too many Austrian restaurants around. The food sounds great. I read the wine and beer menu and recognized only a couple of names. Very interesting.
