Mezzogiorno:SOHO, Manhattan

A day downtown can feel like a day in Europe with its small boutiques, sidewalk caf├ęs and relaxed pace. I highly recommend it for an easy R & R with a friend. We picked this place based on the white table clothed table on a raised mosaic platform on Spring St. Turns out the food was as delicious as the setting and the collection of Joseph Cornell like art boxes in the back are delightful. No wonder it has a wall of laminated articles and awards near the restrooms.

University Club: Mid-town, Manhattan

All these private clubs have a similar feel, but the chintz in this restroom really brought me back to my grandmother's apartment at the Pierre Hotel. Quite a contrast from my afternoon in the edgy shops and galleries of Chelsea. Heard a panel from the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center speak about the state of the disease. Good news- there will not only be better management, but also a cure. The science is there. Need you to send money.

Cookshop:Chelsea, Manhattan

Posted in Dining, Out & About |

My second time lunching at this farm to table hipster restaurant. Last time it was only slightly filled;this time it was packed. The food was only slightly more delicious than the fragrance from these scented sticks. Divine. And such a serene escape from the noisy dining room.
