Lunch with Baby Alec

We met up with former Serious Eats contributor/Vietnamese food expert Tam Ngo at Hiroko's Place to eat lunch and say hi to her baby, Alec. He seemed to like the camera.

Robyn's wide grin translated to something like, "Ahh I dunno how to hold a baby ahhh wow babies are squishy."

Teriyaki sauce taste test
Teriyaki sauce taste test
Kenji set up our teriyaki sauce taste test by cooking up a few ribeye steaks, filling our office with smoky, meaty smells. We wouldn't mind if more of our taste test involved steak.
Steve's Ice Cream tasting

Just another one of those days where we tell our interns (here, Molly, Jodi, and Gracie) to eat ice cream, in this case, Steve's Ice Cream.

Our cereal fanatic Leandra may have let out a few squeals of happiness when she opened a special surprise package from our gluten-free columnist Elizabeth Barbone: RICE KRISPIES TREATS CEREAL! Summer interns Sam and Gracie got in on the action.

On Monday we hung out with our cake, sandwich, and Latin Cuisine extraordinaire Maria to celebrate her birthday! That's what Yuba looks like when she's excited. ...Totally.

Deep, deep down inside, Yuba was really getting into that partying spirit.
Dinner at Mulberry Street Bar
Dinner at Mulberry Street Bar
Kenji, Jessica, and Maria dug into pizza and calzones at Mulberry Street Bar, one of our fave local hang-outs (their burgers are good, too).
"Gimme pizza?"
"I'm still waiting..."
"PIZZA OMG PIZZA!"
Ah...because you weren't eating pizza.
"PIZZA IS MINE!"
"ARGRHGH MRAARAHHH YOM"

Kenji and Erin headed out to Central Park on Tuesday night for a picnic with the pups to watch Kenji's sister's orchestra The Knights perform. Hambone was trying to tell us that she just hit a wrong note.

This is the look Yuba gives when she really really really wants some of that Gorgonzola Erin's eating.

Hambone prefers watching the audience's reaction instead of the performers. Kinda like those Youtube videos of people watching Youtube videos.
