Kimmy Schmidt is alive, dammit, and after breaking out of the bunker in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s first season, she’s ready for more New York City adventures.
Ahead of the Season 2 premiere (all episodes stream on Netflix beginning April 15), we caught up with the cast members to find out what they would eat if they were trapped in a bunker for 15 years and where they go to chow down in NYC.
“If this is my fantasy, it would be Levain chocolate chip cookies,” Ellie Kemper (aka Kimmy Schmidt) said. “If I were in the bunker, those chocolate chip cookies. I mean, I might not survive that long. But the thing is, doesn’t chocolate release endorphins? I think that’s why I’m leaning towards the cookies. There’s nuts in those cookies, so lots of protein.”
Check out the rest of the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt cast’s dream bunker foods and favorite NYC restaurants here.
Love is in the air on the Simply Laura premiere. To kick off Season 2, Laura Vitale whipped up steakhouse-quality food with her husband, Joe, for a date night at home.

Watch the full episode to see how date night came together for Laura, and watch new episodes of Simply Laura on Saturdays at 10:30am ET.
