Where Inwood/Washington Heights, New York City

Time 1:45 pm

What's a typical lunch for you? I usually go for something light and easy, like a ham and cheese sandwich or a yogurt with fruit. If I'm lucky to be on a shoot that's catered, I always end up eating way too much of whatever they bring, but I'm trying to be more careful about that this year! Today I'm working from home, and I happen to have the ingredients and the time to cook {which is rare} so I made my favorite dish—linguini with alfredo sauce and steamed asparagus.

What's your dream/ideal lunch? A nice cut of Argentine steak cooked over a wood fire at a grill in Buenos Aires, a side of Ensalada Rusa {potato salad with carrots, peas, and hard boiled egg in mayonnaise}, and homemade flan.

Dessert with lunch? Most definitely. I could really go for a perfect piece of coconut cream pie, but I'll probably have to settle for a cup of mint tea with sugar.

Thanks James!
