Instead of cooking, I give you a starfish martini! Made by Obao on 53rd between 2nd & 3rd:
I love that place, and I last went there for dinner with my friend, M., a few weeks ago. We were delighted to find a starfish in her martini! A little touch like this certainly has the power to delight. After all, I did take photo and post it on the Internet!
P.s. In case anyone is interested, Obao also makes excellent crispy pork belly. So bad for your cholesterol, but sooooooo tasty.
