I’ve signed up for a gym membership at Equinox, so this morning at 7am, I was meeting with a PT to assess my overall condition. It wasn’t as bad as I suspected, but still with a lot of room for improvement. We set up some goals and on Saturday, we’ll dig into the more practical stuff such as what kind of exercise I should do to get fit, most preferably with as little effort as possible.
After the session, I was really hungry, so I started walking towards Balthazar, but I changed my mind along the way and decided to try the Swiss Café Select instead. When it comes to breakfast, I’m a creature of habit, and my new habit is Bircher muesli. It’s healthy and tasty and perfect after a workout session. At Cafe Select, a bowl of Bircher muesli with fresh fruit is $10, but for an additional $2, you get a cup of coffee, bread and butter. A very good deal, considering the location and all that fruit they put on top of the müesli.
I also had a look at the dinner menu, and I saw that you could get Züri Geschnätzlets, which is a Swiss dish with veal in cream sauce. It was one of the things on top of my to-eat list in Zürich, but for some reason, it never happened. Now it seems like I’m getting a second go in New York. The staff also told me that there’s a “secret” backroom bar at Café Select, which opens at 7pm. Hmm..I guess I have to go back and see what it’s like in the evening.
