I find this site a little boring to be honest! None of your photos really capture what you opening statement suggests - 'I work in Fashion. I see lots of people everday. I want others to see them. '

It is also a New York (life)style blog. As I said before if you just want to see men dressed in suits or crazy Swedes then there are other blogs to whom you can devote your attention.

How much did you pay for a dinner like that?

Sounds delicious yet looks strangely...unfulfilling? I mean come on, that's a "salad"? It may've tasted incredible, but I cant believe you went home full.

to r,

the pacing of such a dinner would make it so you feel full. certainly don't expect it to be the same feeling as being at an all-you-can-eat buffet. at a place like this they look at you funny if you unbutton your pants at the end of a meal.

The presentation seems amateur and sloppy. I wouldn't even know what to do with that first plate. What a joke. And that plate with a pile of turkey and gravy all over the place is shameful. I wouldn't serve that to beggers at a soup kitchen.

As delicious as it may be, it still looks like chick food. "Unfulfilling", like R said.

Then again, I could only dream of eating at a place like that.
