Fat and Crabby

Actually mostly just fat. From going out. Every. Night. This. Week. So I guess I'm living up to the name of the blog because I haven't cooked a single meal at home.

Fortunately tonight I had the pleasure of going out with the girls (Lianne, Lisa, Lauren, Jen - Holla!) to Fatty Crab UWS. I've been to the original location downtown, but the new location on the west side was a convenient location for us all to meet so we decided to check it out. We were fortunate to make a reservation in advance of the NY Times review this week. We've kind of started a pseudo restaurant club, which I think is just an excuse to get together, hang out, and have great food at great restaurants. I love the food at FC, particularly because there is no lack of fire power, yet everything is so well balanced. Can I get some chilies? Oh, they're already peppered throughout (no pun intended!) the food as well as additionally available on the side.

I'm not well versed in the art of restaurant reviewing so I'm not going to write a review, but let's just say that the food was tasty, my cocktail was delish (Straits Sling - London Dry Gin, Benedictine, Massenez Kirch, lime and ginger beer) and the 80's music rocked! (Not sure if that is always the soundtrack or if we just got lucky.) Definitely stop by either location if you are in NYC.

The next Slut drink needs an umbrella!

Perhaps the Pasty White Slut?

Or the Fat White Slut could be topped with ice cream AND an umbrella?
