Look, if anyone "gets" routine, it's me. But if you're as sick of the same old deli meat and Swiss sandwich or make-your-own-salad as I am, consider shaking up your lunch rotation.
On Wednesday night, about ten food bloggers/press and I were invited to a media tasting at Aroma Espresso Bar. And believe you me, there was much more to be sampled than day-old pastries and pre-packaged sandwiches. Started in Israel in the late 90's, Aroma quickly spread throughout the small country before opening its first US location in 2006. Right here in NYC's Soho neighborhood! And, since then, the small chainlet has launched stores in New Jersey, Miami, and Maryland.
I'm thrilled to know that there is an Aroma Espresso Bar located so close to my office. Well, it's kind of scary, actually. My girlish figure! Anyhoo, I foresee many future lunches - and snack breaks - filled with decadent cups of hot chocolate, frozen mint lemonade, spinach bourekas, halumi sandwiches, halvah pastries, and those warm, gooey chocolate-chocolate chip cookies. Drool.
Until we eat again,
The Lunch Belle
