We flew in to New York City early one glorious Sunday morning. It was one of those fall days with high blue skies and a cool breeze drifting through the air. Everything felt crisp and alive as we strolled through Central Park to our destination – Tavern on the Green.
For some reason I grew up thinking this place was unobtainable to me – the lair of celebrities and the rich. To have this chance for a Sunday brunch on such a beautiful day was a treat. We were seated outside on the patio, and despite it being a bit chilly, the surrounding fall color from the Central Park trees added a magical glow. First up – alcohol, courtesy of a mimosa and a Bellini. Next was the main course, all eaten with a healthy side of people watching. A couple at a nearby table had come for coffee and pastry. The pastry was in the form of the largest cinnamon bun I have ever seen. It virtually took up an entire dinner plate.
We finished our meal as the sun warmed our faces. Then it was back out for a stroll in the park on our way to somewhere new.
