I purchased a beautiful Astier de Villate candlestick from Catbird NYC, and I was so pleased with the special package that came. I love supporting small businesses, especially because their attention to detail is unmatched.
For the first time in 10 years, I stayed in NYC like a tourist. I got a great rate at 11 Howard, and it was perfect for an overnight solo trip.
The Nomad has one of the prettiest outdoor dining set ups I have seen. Yes it was cold, but still a wonderful way to catch up with a good friend! Also the fried brussel sprouts were delicious.
I finally made it to one of our neighborhood gems – Rezdora – for a delightful lunch with a friend. It did not disappoint.
we were so fortunate to finally make it down the street to one of the best restaurants in the world – eleven madison park. even though i am vegetarian, i did not feel cheated out of the amazing culinary experience at all (we even got to visit the impeccable kitchen!). it was truly a night to remember.
i am woefully behind on posting, but wanted to share some snapshots of christmas around our house and nyc (taken at the vessel).
my best friend and i spent a recent saturday brunching and jewelry shopping. now if that isn’t a perfect day, i don’t know what is. our spot of choice was bobo, a little taste of a parisian bistro in the middle of the west village. they also have a great roof deck for private events.
okay, i have a confession. i hit up the manolo blahnik sale hard. the boutique, a nyc institution, is closing in december, which meant the selection was unreal. i am also back on the heel train at work after taking a break, and i am so thrilled to have these to chose from.
we went for a date night at wayla in the lower east side, and it was worth the wait. the food was fresher and more authentic than what you normally get in thai takeout. can’t wait to go back. (sorry for the dark pictures!)
