Lunch In The City + Levain Bakery Cookies

I had a terrific lunch at Lil Frankie’s on the lower east side in the city yesterday.

The weather was GORGEOUS so celebrating my friend/co-worker’s birthday with lunch (and dessert!) outside was just perfect.

It’s really only fitting that pizza was the main attraction as this is my friend who started the New York City pizza tour that I mentioned to you a while back.

Before getting to the pizza, we ordered garlic bread. After just one bite I said out loud, “I need more garlic bread with cheese in my life on a regular basis.”

My goodness this was good.

We ordered food for the table including a few pizzas, a nice salad, and pasta.

I was closest to the margarita and vegetable pizza which worked out well.

I highly recommend Lil Frankie’s if you are downtown in the city!

The desserts were beyond incredible too.

My friend’s favorite cake is a vegan chocolate cake from By The Way Bakery.

The fudge on this cake was absolutely terrific. Trust me, I know my chocolate.

Can we discuss my excitement over deciding to surprise her (and everyone else?) with Levain Bakery cookies?! We were just waiting for an opportunity and excuse to get a whole box of Levain cookies and here was our chance!

In this Levain Bakery cookie box was:

  • Dark Chocolate Chip
  • Chocolate Chip Walnut
  • Dark Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter
  • Two Chip Chocolate Chip
  • Oatmeal Raisin

I took my Levain Bakery two-chip chocolate chip cookie to go and carefully carried it with me to eat when I got home.

I’m definitely still full from what I ate yesterday but every single bite was worth it!
