Recomendations for New York-
Breakfast is always great at The Five Leaves
Oysters, Ale and Sunsine down the road in AsWell for happy hour
More oysters - you can never have enough - at the stunning Oyster Bar in the bowels of Grand Central Station and then upstairs for a true New York cocktail in The Campbell Apartment.
Tasty and unusual tacos at Salvation Taco but the main reason to go is that they have one of the nices roof bars in the city.
The Bakeri in Williamsburg serves great coffee and an interesting selection of baked goods. I particularly like their coconut yeast bun stuffed with custard. Anything with custard has me hooked.
ABC Kitchen is unmissable. In an ever changing city I have gone back time and again.
I am really looking forward to speaking at The Ballymaloe Literary Festival in May. It looks like it will be a great weekend and it is an honour to be sharing a stage with so many people I have admired for years.
