Spring in New York - Day 2

This morning we walked a block from our hotel to Meet for Day 1 of our Spring strategy retreat.
If you are ever looking to host a meeting in NY, they have some great spaces - see how cute this is?
They catered in lunch from Smile to Go which was very healthy and delicious (okay, maybe not the cookies, but you have to have some balance).
After a solid day of strategizing, I headed to abcV to have dinner with my best friend who lives in New York. (And Jake Gyllenhaal was dining a couple of tables from us!)
We started with a round of Thai Julius' - lemongrass tequila, cointreau, sea buckthorn, thai basil, galangal, and whipped coconut.
We had the strawberries, sugar snap peas, avocado, ice wine vinaigrette, and basil salad.
Then we had this amazing wheat sourdough bread with ricotta cheese, ramps, and chili flakes.
This was followed by the fire roasted white yam with coconut yogurt, tamarind, and tandoori masala.
We finished with the fresh tofu, spicy szechuan pepper oil, peanuts, grilled and pickled cucumber. It was really good and tasty.
I met my colleague and a friend of hers in the hotel lobby and we went back up to the roof for a nightcap. I had the "architect with a graffiti addiction" - Bombay Sapphire, Aperol, grapefruit, lemon verbena, and prosecco - so good!
