lunch at a leisurely pace, Casa Mono

Untitled
On my one free day in New York, a Saturday, we wandered around Union Square, taking in the chess masters and hustlers ...
Untitled
... before making our way to the wonderful single-macarooned Casa Mono, one of my favourite joints in the city.
Untitled
There was an abundance of seafood, starting with razor clams and sardines ...
Untitled
... reaching its peak with intensely savoury and textural pulpo on fennel and grapefruit ...
Untitled
... before moving onto sweetbreads and quail.
Untitled
Appetite and thirst were abetted by what else in a tapas bar, but sidra, from bottle and spout ...
Untitled
... executing the perfect long pour ...
Untitled
... showing all those pungent pickled fruit notes.

In a word, happiness.
