Three Girls with Appetites

In this world they are two types of girls: those who get together with girlfriends for lunch and refuse to eat and those like me—girls who get together with girlfriends for lunch and know how to indulge. I am by no means saying we overindulge. I am just saying we aren’t ashamed or afraid to get together over a few dishes of food. For a foodie like myself, I am so happy to have these types of girlfriends!

Today the three of us met up at Five Points Restaurant. While this restaurant has been featured in Time Out NY and New York magazine, what brought us in was an episode of The Best Thing I Ever Ate on Food Network. Chef Alexandra Guarnaschelli raved about Five Points’ Wood Oven Pizzette. What's that? It’s thinly sliced Yukon gold potatoes, fontina cheese & truffle oil “pizza”. Mouth watering yet? Figured so, that's exactly why we went to check it out for ourselves!

Naturally we needed more dishes to accompany the pizzette, so we ordered the Char-Grilled Grass Fed Burger and the Beer Battered Fish Tacos. All the dishes looked remarkable. We eargerly asked the waiter to place the dishes in the middle so the three of us could feast!

It was unanimous, the pizzette was the favorite! But at the very least we were able to taste other menu items, split the bill which made it economical and lastly, got the opportunity to catch up on each other’s lives. Now that's what I call a great power lunch with girlfriends!
