Happy New Year!

Hope everyone had a great New Years Eve last night.  I was blessed with a wonderful cold this year but still managed to have a great time at The Blind Tiger enjoying some delicious beers.  As always I look forward to the new year with some hopeful dining experiences in mind.  I had thirteen places on my wish list last year and only accomplished seven but some of my best dining experiences were unplanned so we'll see how it goes.  My 2013 Wish List:

Chez Sardine
Library at the Public
Brooklyn Fare
Pok Pok Thai
Tribeca Canvas
Queens Comfort

Brought over from last year 
John Dory

I also plan to brew my own beer (finally) and spend a lot more time in Chinatown.  But overall these are just small wishes.  This year has done nothing but reinforce the importance of family, friends and a place to call home.  As long as I have those three things I consider myself the luckiest girl in the world.
