It’s always fun to stumble upon an unexpected treat, particularly when that treat is made entirely out of gingerbread!
I popped into the Le Parker Meridien Hotel lobby to check the menu at Norma’s, and low and behold was greeted with the sweetest display of gingerbread houses, bridges, and Broadway extravaganzas I ever did see!
The theme? Why, “Made in New York”, naturally! Bakeries from all over the city put their noggins together and create delicious displays they feel represent the theme…all of them wildly different and innovative, as you’ll see!
I snapped photos with my phone (hence the so-so quality), and did a bit of recon when I got home. Turns out this edible extravaganza is hosted by City Harvest annually, as a way to feed hungry New Yorkers. Okay, not feed them gingerbread, but to have you place $1 vote on your favorite house, and then THAT money goes to feed those in need in the city. (It’s all in the details!;-)
This is such a festive way to round out a Midtown dinner date in NYC, don’t you think?
Which one is your fave?
