Post-pilgrimage I wasn't exactly feeling like Death in terms of emaciated hunger, but I was a little peckish, so I stopped into the nearby New Leaf Cafe in Fort Tryon Park for a bit of refreshment. Only to discover that just about the only thing they had that wasn't their prix fixe ginormous brunch was avocado toast.
Like a lot of people, I have a knee-jerk reaction against avocado toast. It's too...easy, you know? Avocado. Toast. Done. Too much of an obvious crowd pleaser, too. It's 2016, I want my food to challenge me! I can make avocado toast, for crying out loud. Why eat it at a restaurant? Those sorts of sentiments.
Still, three cheers for avocado toast, judiciously, in small doses, at the right moments.
