You're very welcome, Jenny - I'm glad you're enjoying it!
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this blog. Thanks Megan!
We (my husband & I ) are heading to New York for Easter. This blog is going to be a fantastic reference point. Last time we couldn't get reservations for Babbo, so we went to Casa Mono instead. We really enjoyed it. Hopefully we can get a table for Babbo this time. We will of course have to stop in Pegu Club for some cocktails beforehand, in your honour.
Are there any special events or parades etc that happen in the city over Easter?
Thanks again for putting so much time into a really fantastic blog.
As for Easter, yes, we do have an Easter Parade. Here are some details for you to check out...basically, it's an opportunity for people to wear crazy-ass hats in public. There's also an egg roll in Central Park, which is probably really fun, and beautiful, given that it's near Bethesda Fountain, one of my favorite spots to have coffee on a spring morning.
Oh, now I'm sad that I didn't take you all to Central Park...
Definitely try for a Babbo reservation - they're relatively easy to get, especially in the middle of the week. Just try to call the first or second day they're available (they only book a month in advance), and you should be fine.
