The New York Sun recently featured an awesome look inside Ellie's real life New York City kitchen on the Upper West Side. I'm just short train ride away, Ellie. The dinner bell is ringing!
She and her husband must be doing pretty well, as this isn't your typical, shoebox-size NYC kitchen.
"They put in granite countertops, removed old appliances, and added custom-made, cherry-stained maple cabinetry that goes with the dark wood furniture around the rest of apartment.[...]They also added a bread drawer with a Plexiglas cover that balances moisture and keeps bread from drying out, and a root vegetable drawer that has an aerated bottom to keep it cool and dry."
[sigh] When will I have a NYC kitchen like this, I wonder. Tina Fey was once quoted as saying something along the lines of, "In my first apartment in New York, I could sit on the toilet and still reach the stove to stir what was cooking--it was that small." That'd probably be the kind of place I'd get at this point.
