Central Park Bunch, New York

Sunday brunch is one of life’s great pleasures.

A leisurely meal over papers, with lots to talk about. Preferably in the sunshine and followed by a long walk somewhere green.

When temperatures climb in New York, Central Park can be a real haven from the somewhat suffocating heat.

So slipping on a cotton dress and skipping over to the park where children run shrieking through fountains, couples canoodle, and dogs stretch, is just perfect on a lazy Sunday.

And this is just the perfect cotton city dress.

Light, comfortable, classic and timelessly chic.

Toughened up just a little with a navy leather jacket.

After a meet up with a few New York Londoner readers on the steps of The Met, something I plan to do much more of and in more cities, my chap and I headed into the park for one final New York brunch.

Taking a table outside at Tavern on The Green.

I’d never been before, but they do a cracking bellini and an even better burger.

So I’ll certainly go again!

Tender, rich, perfectly cooked and a real winner.

Certainly when compared to my date’s salad…

It’s safe to say he suffered from acute food envy!

But we made it up over pudding: a huge, warm and sticky cinnamon bun.

Dusted with sticky pecans.

We polished off a couple more cocktails, lounged in the sun a little longer and finally headed off for a stroll.

Making our way home eventually and hailing down one of those flying yellow taxis…

… heading to the airport and back to reality on our own side of the pond.

Sorry my New York posts have been somewhat brief on this trip, I suppose I’ll just have to go back and try again!

Seems like a good enough excuse to me!
