at Herb & Kitchen (Hilton Manhattan East)
-Midtown East, NY-
Mission to USA + Personal Deviation, Day 6 (see previously 7.036 Classic Lobster Newberg).
In New York. Here to attend a meeting Tuesday to tomorrow on NCDs at the United Nations. Plus to give a guest lecture Monday on global health at TU. Flying back Saturday.
Won’t bother going into a drawn out description of the pretzel and its history, suffice it to say for purposes of this post that pretzels are ubiquitous in New York as a snack item, in bars, delis, diners, bakeries, and at streetside food carts.
After the meeting had wrapped for the day, I went back to the hotel and grabbed a pretzel at the lobby bar to tide me over until dinner. However, I was soon so thoroughly exhausted that I ended up staying in.
So the pretzel will have to serve as dinner for this post.
