Sunday in the City

What could beat brunch, Central Park and a musical on a lovely Sunday in New York City? 

We started off the day at Cinema Cafe, a cosy restaurant on 34th and Third. I ordered the Hangover Pizza: bacon, leeks, egg and arugula-

Dad picked classic Eggs Benedict-

And Mom chose the Wild Mushroom and Gruyere Omlette-shiitake, portobello, crimini, oyster and button mushrooms, oy my! 

We then journeyed uptown to take a stroll through Central Park, stopping to say hi to Balto

We made our way to the Central Park Zoo, a lovely little zoo on the east side of the park. 

Animal crackers are a must for the zoo!

We then headed to the Walter Kerr Theatre for a matinee of the Tony winning musical, ‘A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder’. 

The show is absolutely worth the hype! From their website:

GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, an heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by—you guessed it—eliminating the eight pesky relatives who stand in his way (each played by Tony winner Jefferson Mays in what The New York Times calls “the year’s greatest musical theater performance”). All the while, Monty has to juggle his mistress (she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance… and be done in time for tea. The Hollywood Reporter raves, “GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE RESTORES OUR FAITH IN MUSICAL COMEDY” and The New York Times cheers, “IT WILL LIFT THE HEARTS OF ALL THOSE WHO’VE BEEN PINING FOR WHAT SOMETIMES SEEMS A LOST ART FORM.” Kindly get your tickets now for the new musical that will have you dying with laughter!”
