Later we went to east and Shoreditch for some Sushi Samba at 39th floor. LOVE the … Read More Dry Martinis and Samba on 39th floor

Ceviche part 2 (I went there!)

Last week I asked if anyone wanted to take me to Ceviche. And what do you do if no one wants to? You drag your poor boyfriend with you (and lets him pay!). This was a Thursday night and we went there with no reservation but quite early so thought it would work out. Wrong! It was really crowded and the clock had just passed … Read More Ceviche part 2 (I went there!)
