Best of NYC: Peanut Butter & Co / Little Owl


It's been a while since I have posted an NYC food note. Here is a brief two for one.

Located in the heart of Greenwich Village is my new favorite specialty shop, Peanut Butter & Co.

Taryn and I have now had two of their unique peanut butters. The first one was a no sugar added crunchy mix called "Crunch Time". This p.b. is great on just about everything. If you like crunch then this stuff is for you. Its not quite sweet enough for me so I think its perfect with a little bit of jelly. The second p.b. we have purchased is Cinnamon Raisin Swirl. I call it "ants on a log juice" because it goes perfectly on a big ol' stalk of celery. This p.b. is delicious with the perfect amount of sweet and salty. I eat it every morning. We intend to eat the rest of the Peanut Butter & Co collection, including White Chocolate Wonderful and The Bee's Knees.

I won't say much about Little Owl (also located in the Village) because the interweb is littered with foodie reviews of the new-ish restaurant. That said, last night I ordered the pork chop and it was perfection. The Flinstone's size chop was served on top of fava beans, spinach, and a thin apple slice. It was topped with a delicious sauce (apple vinegar base) that featured fennel (loud but not overpowering) and rosemary. For dessert I had the apple crisp with hazelnut gellato. I am a conisuer of apple crisps (just ate Otto's on Sunday night) and this one may be the cream of the crop.

Oh...and rubbing shoulders with me throughout my meal at the Little Owl? Michelle Pfieffer and Kate Kapshaw (Indy: Temple of Doom). Sitting across from Michelle? Steven Spielberg.

I should have asked him why War of the Worlds sucked so bad.
