We arrived at 3-ish and were told it was a forty-minute wait for a table for two. It was PACKED. Tons of dates, friends hanging out after a good Saturday night out and of course families filled it to the rim inside and outside.
We waited wine in hand at the bar. It´s such a gorgeous place takes me back to Paris in an instant (and a French restaurant in Oslo which I also loooove). I love everything French. French food, French wine, French cheese, French fashion, French cities, French kissing…In general – you get the idea. So Pastis was perfect to that feeling of France in New York. The décor is very old French with run-down brick walls, old fashioned mirrors and just so lovely rustic.
And the food – wow! We had the croque Monsieur and the foie gras with Sancerre. So tasty! Of course a little bit pricy, but excellent and surely worth a visit.
XOXO from New York

In january 2010, i blogged about my love for coral... Not much has changed since then, and I'm still head over heels. It actually started when i inherited my grandmothers original coral necklace after she passed away several years ago. I guess the color makes me feel close to her :)
Hi, Camilla is back again!
We´ve had a couple of months with serious traveling in South America (working with children in Bolivia, trekking A LOT and basically living in our backpacks). But now we´re settled in gorgeous New York – that being in a beautiful apartment in Brooklyn. We´re actually living in the old Norwegian neighborhood, which was kind of a surprise! There´s a Norwegian store on the corner that sells basically all our favorite food from back home. I have to admit that I missed our goat cheese after five months on the go...
This is one of my favorite cities and I´m soooo excited to finally live here and just have a taste of it all - the vibe, the fashion and the of course the food and wine.
(Yes. Bleeker st.)
Me and my husband now staring our lives here, working as servers and of course I´m working as a freelance writer as well.
I´m looking forward to contributing to SC and being their NYCs "correspondent" in the months to come:)
Wish you all the best from NYC:) Maybe I´ll even meet some of you SCs fans in the city?!
