I had a very unromantic Valentine’s Day dinner with Debs and her work friend in New York. We had the Valentine’s prix fixe at The National, the restaurant in our hotel building. The red velvet cheesecake was a little strange, otherwise the food was good. We couldn’t even finish half the porterhouse steak though. It was huge!

porterhouse for two with arugula, creamy spinach & heirloom potatoes

I emerged from Central Park, found myself on 5th Ave and headed for FAO Schwarz, the legendary toy company. It was pretty amazing.
