It was fun to meet friends at the Beauty & Essex restaurant located at 146 Essex Street on the Lower East Side in Manhattan. As you enter you’ll encounter a novel setting — vintage jewelry and musical instruments available for purchase.

We met up after 8 pm, so a Kale and Apple Salad with apple cider vinaigrette, pancetta, candied pecan, and shaved goat cheese seemed just right.

A side of fresh, hot Focaccia Bread was the perfect accompaniment.

Latham House in Jersey City

I frequently dine around Manhattan while checking out the latest shows, jazz, and classical music venues. Friends recently reminded me that unique, excellent restaurants and sites could be found minutes away in Jersey City.

Pershing Square Café

I’ve often enjoyed Pershing Square Café’s wonderful breakfast specials and especially their legendary pancakes. After enjoying an early evening of swinging jazz across town at Birdland Jazz Club, I walked east from 8th Ave through Times Square on 42nd Street, past Bryant Park and Grand Central towards peaceful Tudor City. Nestled next to Grand Central where Park Avenue intersects 42nd Street is the Pershing Square Café. Tonight, it looked like the perfect quiet place for a post-jazz bite.

Tony Kadleck Big Band at Birdland

Swinging big band music was hot in Manhattan! From the moment the Tony Kadleck Big Band began their set at the Birdland Jazz Club, we tapped our toes and jumped to a tasteful, tight, polished sound, solid rhythm section, cats burnin’ solos, and sophisticated superb arrangements by trumpeter and band leader Kadleck.
