One of my life highlights has to be meeting Sarah Jessica Parker and ultimately becoming her friend. We met May this year and I mentioned to her that I would be in NYC in the fall and she told me to let her know when I was in town and we would meet up.
I wrote her an email and we immediately made a date! I still cannot believe that I was actually going to have dinner with SJP in NYC! It was like one of those surreal moments. She chose a lovely little Italian restaurant called La Perla. Sarah Jessica is currently working on a play and although her schedule is extremely busy she was really nice and kind enough to meet me Malu and Nix.
It was such a joy to be with her as she was really so nice authentic and real. It was the kind of dinner that you have with a really good friend and I we really had a fantastic time catching up and just sharing stories about her family and ours.
The food at La Perla http://perlanyc.com was spectacular and I cannot wait to go back to eat there again. The restaurant serves these original Italian dishes with lots of heart and soul. I enjoyed every dish that we ordered. I particularly loved the pasta dish that was shaped like ears. LOL! It was really delicious and it was again so surreal to be actually sharing this dish with one of New York cities icons! However it’s really so easy to be relaxed around Sarah Jessica because she immediately puts you at ease and really made everyone she meets feel comfortable and secure.
The evening was really beautiful filled with stories about TV shows, theatre and future plans. I just wanted to share with all you this special experience and how truly blessed I am to have a friend like Sarah Jessica Parker!
