There was this one time in the office, when I was interning in SoHo, that Shannon and I planned on going for lunch. We were office brats, eager to go out for a walk and get some fresh air. (The day before she dragged me onto the blocked off street to catch a glimpse of Zach Efron filming his new movie.)

She talked about moving into the city, and I vented my visa woes.

For two people that only met for less than a few weeks, we had become really good friends already. On our work emails, we’d send each other funny LOL gchats and smirk across the office. You know, work gal pal stuff. (Hi Shannon, if you’re reading!)

It was nearing Shannon’s last day and we decided we’d explore the east side of Nolita more. We ended up at Ruby’s.

If I couldn’t afford to eat at Balthazar’s, at least I could get a drink from their to-go shack, I thought to myself. Although shack isn’t quite the appropriate diction to describe a place like Balthazar. To preface this place, this famous SoHo French patisserie serves up a small raspberry chocolate tart at $6.50.

On Instagram, a stranger raved about Balthazar’s ginger citrus tea and it stuck with me. I doubt a tea can go beyond $5 and decide to get one.
