Sharing some photos from our trip to NYC last weekend:
Happy Friday! I thought I would share what we did and some of my favorites things about New York.
- Stayed at the Gansevoort Park Ave (yes this is where the Kardashians were staying and no we didn’t have their luxurious room), but I did love the location and hotel. I’ve also stayed at the Ganesvoort Meatpacking. I preferred Park Ave, rooms were bigger and the location is in Gramercy and near the subway.
- We had dinner at The Dutch with some friends. I loved it, great low key atmosphere and fantastic food. It was voted as the ten best new restaurants of 2011 by New York Magazine.
- My husband and I had date night at Marea. Beautiful seafood platters and fresh pasta. I had a four course dinner and was extremely happy and full. Although it was delicious, Le Bernardin is still our favorite seafood fine dining establishment. Expect tablecloths, suits and some blue hairs, but the food is impeccable.
- Other favorite places to eat: Gramercy Tavern (nice occasions), Sushi Yasuda (the best sushi you will ever taste in your life), Minetta Tavern (yummiest burger), if you don’t mind sitting outside of course Shake Shack, Ess-a-Bagel (there’s a ton of bagel shops, but this is my fav!), and The Standard Grill (for the scene and I love the beer garden in the summer)
Besides eating, of course my favorite thing is shopping! Bergdorf’s, Saks, Henri Bendel, Topshop, Intermix, Barney’s. . . I love it all! Jan is a great time to go to New York, it’s low season so hotels and tickets are inexpensive and a lot of retailers are discounting around 50% off or more. The Zara faux fur coat and B by Brian Atwood boots in my previous lookbook were on deep discount.
Wish I took more pics but the weather was bad and cold, but overall a great trip. Wishing everyone a happy weekend!
