Four Seasons Hotel New York Christmas tree

Mom and I had dinner with our friends from Montreal, Joan and Luc, at the Four Seasons. I was happy because it was fun! No cat food here! There was foam in the fois gras (whatever that is), and the profiterole was yummy. The wait staff was really sweet; I wanted to eat them up.

Joël Robuchon's restaraunt is very fancy
