Celebrating is about sharing, telling stories, talking. It's about eating a piece of cake that a friend made for you, having a glass of wine or savoring a cup of coffee. It's that unknown sensation that doesn't let you get up from the table after eating. It's much more than just placing silverware and plates on a table, it's creating an ambience, a style, a sensation, an unforgettable memory.

Just Married!

The morning after the wedding in NYC.

At Lyon, a French restaurant in Greenwich Avenue, everyone was waiting outside to have breakfast.

Even the Mexican restaurants were celebrating the wedding with tacos and burritos.

Fish & Chips could not be left out and they were playing one of my favorite songs "Benny and Jets" by Elton John.

The people were eating fish & chips on the street with malt vinegar.

Most of the places couldn't miss the opportunity to expose themselves with decorations. If you couldn't make it to Westminster Abbey and you were in the Big Apple, at Trinity Church in Wall Street they hosted a large screen viewing event even with royals guards dressed up with their British red uniform (Yeoman Warders). Trinity Church was founded by the Royal Charter of England as part of the worldwide Anglican Communion and so is Westminster Abbey.

The little store carries all British goodies candies and sweets. I love Maltesers, Digestive cookies and orange marmalade from the store. I even bought some little British canape flags to decorate my cucumber and salmon sandwiches at home.

This is Nicky Perry, the owner of Tea & Sympathy an English restaurant and shop. The menu is fantastic you can have the perfect afternoon tea with scones, finger sandwiches and cakes.
Shepherd's pie, Roast beef and York pudding......

The tea room was packed with people waiting outside to have breakfast, of course they had the famous Welsh Rarebit: English cheddar with mustard on toast topped with tomatoes. 

     An authentic Royal Fish & Chip experience

Before leaving Greenwich Avenue, I was interviewed by a TV network called Telemundo asking about the Royal Wedding. They asked me about the dress, the kiss and I answered about the food....
