What I love about business travel is getting to see my colleagues that over the years have become great friends.

My dear colleague Elizabeth and I went to Frankies 570 to have a libation, lite shank and celebrate her Birthday!

Frankies 570 is a great neighborhood Italian restaurant on Hudson Street in New York. On a cold winter evening it was the perfect place to dine after a long day of attending a conference.

We started with the radicchio salad with blue cheese, parma ham and a winter squash pasta. The squash pasta was so tasty with sweet and savory flavors. The radicchio salad was grilled with balsamic for a sour taste.

We had a glass of sparkling red wine to make the evening a bit more festive. A great venue to catch up and have a great simple but delicious meal!
