Remember how I went to NYC? Well besides from hanging out with my running blogging friends, I also met up with two of my besties Debbie and Dana who live in the big city. Debs was my college roommate and I've known Dana since we were 8. These girs pretty know every one of my dark secrets and love me all the same. Right girls?
Debs planned a special dinner out at a restaurant called Ninja. Our reservation were at 6:30pm. Early for New York. Perfect for me!website of course... "the interior of the NINJA New York is designed to depict a Ninja castle of the feudal days, with individual rooms layed out in complexity of a maze and clever contraptions are setup throughout so as to deceive the eye of the intruder."
Basically, the place is set up to scare it's patrons. Yep, and scared we were!
We arrived a little after 6:40 and were greeted with a somewhat frantic hostess who infomed us we had to wait. And wait we did. For about 30 minutes. With a reservation. That's NY for ya! When we finally were called, we took an elevator down to the basement where we were greeted AKA scared by our first Ninja in this creepy hall.
First order of business: DRINKS. I ordered RIN which was delicious.
Our waiter was hysterical and we had a blast all night with his ninja-isms. The restuarant in general was so much fun and the service was stand-out. Aside from our somewhat moody hostess, the service was first class and lots of fun!
Our waiter rolled out our menus for us- they are acutally part of the Ninja-look (you'll see in the picture of him below).
We definitely knew we wanted to order some ninja art dishes which were signature dishes.
First, we shared the Caesar Salad.
YES, there were poprocks. And it was amazing.
My pictures aren't great because I was too busy downing RIN cocktails : )
