Pino Palladino and Blake Mills
Notes With Attachments

Sometimes I try to write things on this music and food blog that will describe some music to you, why I like it, maybe some little backstory about it. I don't know, music blog stuff. But in this case I think I'm just going to keep it to myself. Or at least I'll leave it to this: Pino Palladino is incredible, Blake Mills is on the verge of incredibility, and this collaboration between the two of them actually lives up what I imagine could happen when the two of them work together. My biggest complaint is that it's too short.

Go listen to listen to the album and get back to me.

Skylight DinerManhattan
Cheese omelette and sausage

It's been so long since I've sat in a diner and eaten breakfast. So long. You know this, why am I telling you? We've all gone through this shit at the same time, I don't need to sit here and tell you how much I missed eating breakfast in a diner.

This very average omelette and sausage links and home fries at the very average Skylight Diner in Chelsea on a very average Saturday morning was the absolute best kind of average. I loved it and I can't wait to do it again.

Joey Bats CafeManhattan
Pastéis de nata

Just need to update you that I ate another pastéis de nata. This one at the incomprehensibly named Joey Bats Cafe in the Lower East Side. It's far hipper than the Teixeira Bakery in Newark, more expensive than the Teixeira Bakery in Newark, but not as good as the Teixeira Bakery in Newark.

Don't get me wrong, it was good. If you're in the Lower East Side and want a pastéis de nata, by all means absolutely do it. You'd be crazy not to. But if you can only eat one pastéis de nata this year (that would be a weird situation... what would lead to that?), get yourself to Newark.
