A NYC wedding and more food

I’m back with more pictures from our fabulous NYC trip.  Like I said before, we were out in NYC for the wedding of friends, Ivan and Lexi.  Ivan was a classmate of Hubby and I’s and he met wife Lexi while doing a residency in Buffalo, NY.

Their ceremony was at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox church and the reception was at the Tribeca Rooftop.

Beautiful mosaics throughout the church.

After walking into the Tribeca rooftop building we rode an elevator up and were met with a martini bar, a sushi station, fresh seafood station, a buffet of amazing cheeses and passed hors d’ oeuvres.  I was full before we even sat down to dinner, all of the food was amazing!

Gorgeous view from the rooftop, overlooking the Hudson river.  They had perfect weather for their wedding day and a gorgeous sunset.

Since Hubby was in the wedding, I was lucky enough to sit at the wedding party table, we met some really great people that evening.

First dance.

The bride’s dress was absolutely stunning, it was a blush color and she looked amazing!

Hubby was in the wedding party, he looked so handsome in his tux!

First course of dinner, caprese salad with dinner roll.

I chose the sea bass as my main course, Hubby had the filet.  The fish was good, but I was definitely getting full.  But not too full for dessert….

This was the wedding cake, served with berries and vanilla bean ice cream.  But, before the cake was served they had brought out chocolate covered strawberries, homemade baklava, mini cannolis, cookies, and other mini desserts!

The wedding and reception were both beautiful and felt very New York-stylish and elegant.  We had a wonderful time celebrating their union and enjoyed dancing and eating the night away.

They even had hot dogs on our way out the door, as much as I love hot dogs, I just didn’t have room!


Like I said in my previous NYC post, friends from Point Pleasant, NJ came into the city for a night.  We went to restaurant RedFarm in the West Village.  The cuisine is Chinese, I’m not exactly sure what the name of the restaurant means.

RedFarm doesn’t take reservations, but will put your name down on a list and you can give them an approximate time that you would like to be seated for dinner.  They will do their best to accommodate that time.  We wanted to eat around 7:30 PM, so we arrived at 7 and had drinks at their small bar and were seated very close to 7:30 PM, we definitely beat the dinner rush.

Menu at RedFarm

Our server was very helpful in navigating the menu, he gave us many great dinner suggestions.

Crispy Beef

Pac-man dumplings…..a novelty dish.

Yuzu-wasabi shrimp

Chinese broccoli with shiitake mushrooms

Lobster with egg

Grilled rib-eye with asparagus

Soft and crunchy vegetable fried rice

We enjoyed all of the dishes, the lobster was especially good.  There are so many great restaurants in NYC, it’s hard to choose one, and since we hadn’t made reservations weeks in advance there were many restaurants that were booked solid.

I’m already dreaming of my next NYC trip-what restaurants to eat at?  What desserts to enjoy?  What shows to see?  And where to shop!?
