I can’t help it—Since Chris and I have started talking about moving to the East Side for practical reasons, I’ve kept a running list of all the things I’ll miss about Hells Kitchen. Near the top: Gazala Place, a fantastic little hole-in-the-wall Druze restaurant on 9th Ave. There’s another location on the Upper West Side, which is also great, and much bigger—if you’re nearby, definitely make it a point to stop in.

This weekend, I enjoyed a study-break lunch, complete with some of my favorites: Spinach-and-goat-cheese boureka, falafel, hummus, fatoush salad, vegetarian stuffed grape leaves, and pita.

I finally have a draft done of my dysphagia paper. I’ll be so happy when that thing is turned in. I have a busy, busy week ahead of me in terms of projects and goings-on, but the good outweighs the not-so-good. Hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend.
