It’s only just starting to sink in.  By this time next week it will be September.  What.

I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to summer yet, but that’s all find and dandy, because I’m headed back to the midwest at the end of the week for a beach weekend in Indiana and some family time in Chicago.

Anyway, I was looking through my photos, and care across a whole slew of them that were originally destined for Instagram but never made it.  The first batch – favorite foodie spots in NYC.

Back in June, I spent a small fortune on dinner – at Feast in the east village.  I think this is the most amount of money I have ever spent on a meal, but it was also one of the best meals I’ve ever had in my life.  Hefty claim, yes, but I only wish the lighting was better inside the restaurant so I could have accurately captured my meal’s amazingness.

We (I went with my friend Erin) did the farmer’s market feast – the vegetarian one – which was two courses plus dessert.  Except that each plate was a course in and of itself, so this was more like a 7 course meal!  SO worth it.  NYC-ers, if you have a few dollars to burn on an excellent meal, go here.  Like, yesterday.

Stumptown cappuccino!  Working at a cafe has seriously heightened my appreciation for good coffee, so I make it a point to try all the best places in the city if I’m in the neighborhood.

Froyo.  On a whim, pure indulgence, delicious.  I found a place that has chocolate rocks in their topping selection! And toasted marshmallow froyo. And peanut butter chips, and ghirardelli hot fudge.  I died.

Gelato at Amorino.  Amaretto, speculoos, and chocolate hazelnut.  The stomachache was worth it.

Juice generation! Acai bowls!  I know I only have one photo right now to prove it, but I usually treat myself to an acai bowl or smoothie a couple times a month.  Or maybe more… So delicious. (I have professed my love for JG countless times on instagram.  and here.)

Bubble tea!  I’m doing some work near Chinatown, and seeing bubble tea everywhere made me want it.  Craving, satisfied.

Treat lunch from the downtown Peacefood.  Once a week, I splurge on a restaurant lunch, and I was craving a really good, vegan sandwich.  This tempeh avocado sandwich hit the spot!

I also grabbed a slice of peanut butter “cheesecake” for later.  Not quite as peanut butter-y as I would have liked, but delicious nonetheless.

O Cafe – my new favorite work/coffee spot! The place is South American, with a focus on quality coffee and sustainability.  And really delicious food. Right up my alley!  This day – soy capp and a veggie frittata.

The best so far – iced coffee with soy milk and ricotta toast.  With pumpkin seeds and honey.  I think this was my favorite because I was full for hours after.

Hot and cold – americano and Acai.  Their sprouted granola is amazing, but my only complaint is that there was not nearly enough of it – by the time I got halfway down the cup, the granola was gone, and my acai was melted.  Boo.

Margaritas at Agave.  On a whim, best decision ever. Side note – I need to back here for a full meal.  Need.

The TLT wrap at S’Nice.  What can I say, I like my vegan tempeh sandwiches!

Some of my favorite meals this summer, though were the ones that went totally un-documented.  Delicious Indian, Chinese, and thai food, breakfasts, coffee meetings, and family dinners – but those were more about the company.

What was your favorite new foodie spot in your city this summer?
