A layered cappuccino
I enjoyed this cappuccino, topped with cinnamon, at Tweed's Restaurant and Buffalo Bar, Riverhead, Long Island. I asked how it was made and was surprised to hear it's easy -using a Nespresso Aeroccino3 Milk Frother. The cappuccino costs US$8.50 and I presume it's very profitable!  The last time I had a layered cappuccino was in Mexico City.

Lavender Farm on Long Island
Surprised to find a thriving lavender industry with fields on the North Fork of Long Island. They have a van that sells lavender products on weekends. Creative idea to plant a non-native plant and make it a commercial enterprise.
