8th Floor RA Mary pretty much says it all this week:
“Forty Carrots, located on the 7th floor of Bloomingdale’s on 59th and Lexington, is a clean, bright, green and orange restaurant with yummy good for you sandwiches, soups, and salads. But they are best known for their ABSOLUTELY TO DIE FOR frozen yogurt. Every day they feature four flavors: coffee, plain, chocolate, and a flavor of the day (the blueberry is BOMB). They have an array of delcious and healthy toppings and you really get what you pay for–it may be $8 but it’s as big as your face, and I finish it every time.
If it’s any testiment to it’s deliciousness, I have a “frequent yogurt card” and the waiters at the Uptown location know my name. It’s the best place for friend dates, shopping breaks, even studying–and there’s nothing like a little dose of Upper East Side charm to remind you how magical New York City is (it’s a stone’s throw from the horses in Central Park, the Plaza Hotel, FAO Schwartz, Bergdorf Goodman, and Henri Bendel). You now know my secret formula for the perfect day of showing a friend around New York–4 or 5 to 59th and Lex for the 3 B’s: Bloomie’s (for forty carrots fro-yo), Bergdorfs (because it’s gorgeous), and Bendels (for some R&R shopping).
This tour may or may not have supplied to my collection of overpriced headbands–and also my massive credit card debt. Whoops.”
