Them soup bowls are huge (and I guess hard to pack). You could feed a horse out of them :o. That's about three times the size of what you would get for soup here in Germany.


And I ate the whole thing. What a pig!  ::)

12 Leaves



Australian hunh? They look very Belgian to me! And you're drinking the right beer too, I see. Very good.  ;D   :)

Only in Brooklyn!!!  :laugh:

One of the best songs by Nick Drake, Nothern Sky. I've loved this song for a very long time. I actually find it difficult to listen to these days. Not that it's a sad song, on the contrary. I think of Heath a lot when I'm listening to Nick Drake, and feel doubly robbed...

*sigh*

I'd love to go to Five Leaves though. It looks like a very relaxing place (when it's not too cold of course).

I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you're here
Brighten my northern sky.

I've been a long time that I'm waiting
Been a long that I'm blown
I've been a long time that I've wandered
Through the people I have known
Oh, if you would and you could
Straighten my new mind's eye.

Would you love me for my money
Would you love me for my head
Would you love me through the winter
Would you love me 'til I'm dead
Oh, if you would and you could
Come blow your horn on high.

I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you're here
Brighten my northern sky.

Beautiful!

At 8:20 AM
It is 19 degrees F (COLD!)
and it is gorgeously sunny!

It is going to be a great day--

Thanks!

18 Leaves (Burnt--on purposed--Tomato Soup)


Wow.  Thanks for the grand tour - that was great!  And the Burnt Tomato Soup looks awesome - it has my name written all over it!   :)

What a fabulous trip report, John and Meryl!  Thank you very much.

Count me in the I want to go too crowd next time I'm in NYC.

This article appeared in Sydney's Sunday Telegraph newspaper last weekend, John. It may be necessary to scroll over to the right to read it all.

Fantastic, Kerry, thank you so much! The article seems completely readable without scrolling, and it is not only well written, it is tantalizing. After a heavy snowfall today, the shepherd's pie with root vegetables seems necessary! You will have another report in due course, I think. (Meryl??)

(I also must mention, if I had not done so before: the coffee really was unbelievably good!)


Thanks again!

John

John and Meryl, thanks for the report and the great pics.  Up until today when I found this blog, I did not know you guys were up East freezing to pieces in Heath's restaurant, while another 6 Brokies were down East in sunny Florida, enjoying our little reunion and eating my mom's chili.

Would it be possible for the Brokies attending the NYC gathering on 2/13+ to enjoy a lunch on 2/14 at Five Leaves?  I definitely will see it while I'm there from the 12th thru the 16th, but it would be much better to share it with other Brokies.  Is that do-able?  Maybe we could make tentative reservations for a big ole table?

P.S.  John, you are quite the handsome fella, I must say.  I'm guessing you have to beat them off with a stick:)
