Another Ode to snackies in NYC. And this one is really full of color.

This place is absolutely delicious (do I say that about everything?) When my twin and mom were in town we popped up to the Upper East Side to check out this little piece of heaven. From the get-go, the polka dots lured me inside. The cupcakes were different than a lot of them in NYC—- the way the icing was spread—- little polka dots on top—- it made it a pinch different than any other cupcake I had seen around. They even have PUPPY CUPCAKES! Talk about a niche market. I thought it was adorable. It reminded me of when I would go to Einstein’s Bagels as a kid and get the Doggie Bagels for my pups. That kind of thing made me so happy! I was a perky child.

Anyway, they’ve got Sprinkles in several cities, check out their website to find out if one is coming near you! Even for a chain of cupcake shops, they still have their spunk, and deliciously moist flavorful cupcakes.

This week has flown by. I wonder where the time goes. But autumn is approaching. Are you ready for fall? I am ready to whip out the coats and boots. Also on the plate this next few weeks are some great markets and vide-greniers. You can check out where they are in Paris here. It’s always fun to let your eyes wander through all the treasures. I also got to make it up to a certain cupcake shop up in the 17th for a snack. Anyone want to join?

Speaking of food, a friend of mine started a Bio Food Blog all about Organic Restos & Recipes in and around Paris called Off We Bio. Check it out right here.

This place we found on Yelp, and of course read nothing but good reviews. The cherry on top was when my chef friend Trevor highly recommended it— I knew I had to check it out. It’s a fun little place as it’s clever set up will surprise you.  La Esquina “serves authentic Mexican food in 3 distinct spaces at one location” [according to their website]. These three spaces include The Taqueria,  The Café and The Brasserie & Bar. All three spaces’s deco is sublime, with a vintage diner twist.

The plates are large servings, so come hungry. Reservations recommended unless you happen to be going at a slow traffic time….dun dun dun.

Getting my fill of Mexican food before I head back to Paris…
