Been a while since I made a food post. Oddly my last one was also for an Italian meal which included black pasta. Here are highlights from @mariobatali’s restaurant @babbo_restaurant last night. Thanks to my cousin and og foodie @soncar for picking the restaurant!

(Photo 1) Black Spaghetti / Rock Shrimp / Spicy Salami Calabrese / Green Chilies [$29] The spaghetti was flavored beautifully thanks to the other ingredients. The coloring was achieved using squid ink. The salami was plentiful and added a salty and crispy dimension to dish like pancetta.

(Photo 2) Grilled Octopus / “Borlotti Marinati” / Spicy Limoncello Vinaigrette [$19] Though I only had once piece, I know I could finish a full platter of the octopus. I had the bottom piece, which was charred and full of flavor. Definitely would recommend this.

(Photo 4) Grilled Ribeye for Two / Charred Ramps / Aceto Manodori [$130 yikes] Cooked to a nicely tendered medium rare, the steak was split for the three of us so we received two generous slices. The steak was garnished with a drizzle of olive oil and a 12-year old balsamic which enhanced the steak flavor.

The grilled lamb chop was underwhelming, I personally would have preferred it cooked more to a medium. We also ordered a side of Sweet Peas with Pancetta [$11]. Last photo was the chickpea bruschetta we were started with.

Outfitted in Boca Pink

The reason for my quick stop in Boca Raton was to join @jetblue Crewmembers who volunteered at least 150 hours in 2017 at @waldorfastoria @bocaresort for the annual JetBlue For Good Awards. In 2017, our 22,000 Crewmembers volunteered over 181,000 hours, more than other airlines with a smaller workforce. Truly inspiring.

When your room isn’t ready at the hotel, roll up your sleeves and pants and head to the beach for some sun and an impromptu photoshoot. Thanks @christielind!

Last week was a blur, but I was able to take a NYC moment after my haircut. This iconic building represents the stops and forks in the road that we encounter in life.

Excited for new beginnings.

Just a smidge of editing to accentuate the colors of the sky and city.

My, oh, my, what a wonderful day
(To be soaked and then stuck on Splash Mountain 🤣).

Day 2 of Express Disney at Magic Kingdom couldn’t have been scripted better!

Food and drinks with Disney models and some of my favorite countries at @disney’s Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival (at @waltdisneyworld).

La Vie en Rose slushy from Paris (Grey Goose Orange Vodka / St. Germain Liqueur / White and Red Cranberry Juice), Bellinis from Venice. Haven’t been to Germany yet, but couldn’t pass up potato pancakes with apple sauce.

This year’s @fosjnyc Spring Gala was incredible. The turnout, entertainment, and experience was impressive. The women were the epitome of class and beauty, and the men were clean and dapper.

Hoping my friends can come out at future @stjude events. I guarantee you’ll have a fun time, meet some great people, and be inspired by the fundraising and patient stories. I have no doubt we’ll bring the energy and vibes to make events even more memorable.

Thank you 📸 @roninphotos for the shots, always happy when I am captured at events for a change.

The elegant Friends of St. Jude (@stjude) Committee (@fosjnyc) at @230fifthrooftop for our second annual Spring Gala two weekends ago!

Thank you to everyone who came out, bought raffle tickets, or bid on the silent auction. We are excited to announce that, together, we raised just over $136,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!

Thank you to our sponsors and our dedicated committee for their generosity, and for making this event a success.

Because of people like you, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Follow us at @fosjnyc and reach out if you’re interested in future events or getting involved! I would love to celebrate with my friends at upcoming events!
