Hooves and Hornblowers
New York is a city of old and new, big and small, dirt and diamonds. I love it. Here are a few of my most recent finds – include them on your next itinerary:
JoJo - A gem of fine dining. Steep Upper East Side townhouse. Romantic and relatively well-priced for the Jean-Georges Vongerichten family of restos.
The Crangi Family Project - An amazing jewelbox. This place is not to be missed. I could have bought every single piece in there if I'd recently won the lottery.
Rooftop bar at the Met - We were lucky enough to be in town while the Big Bambu exhibit was up. Amazing views of the city overlooking Central Park. The bar is seasonal so check the schedule before you go.
The High Line - Go in the morning with your coffee and a lavender doughnut. Walk the whole thing. Start at the north end. Donate and get a cute enviro-friendly tote bag.
Meatpacking shopping - Take the stairs down at the end of the High Line. Cross the street. Shopping heaven. Jeffrey. Vince. Tory Burch. Stella McCartney. DVF. The Pratique Guide looks fun, and there's a free guide for the taking too.
