MAREA new york city.

one of those meals that you replay in your head over and over again during daydream escapes. down to every last bite, everything was absolutely delicious. it's almost unfair that I put my tastebuds through this multi-course extravaganza. how can I ever eat anything again now that I know what freshly-made spaghetti with crab and sea urchin tastes like. tastes like magic to be exact.

see you in my dreams little uni.
