Out & About in New York City


I so enjoyed this last trip to New York for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, I wanted to share some new favorites with you.

Intimate Boutique Hotel

As the newest addition to the Chelsea Flower District, Hotel Indigo New York City-Chelsea is surrounded by rows of compelling art galleries, the best in fine dining and nightlife, renowned theatre, and chic boutiques, creating the ideal setting for a refined and relaxing New York travel experience. The rooms are a perfect size & the service & hotel staff could not be nicer.


Meat Fest

DBGB Kitchen & Bar is Chef Daniel Boulard’s new lowdown downtown place where French brasserie meets American tavern. 14 varieties of house-made sausages, mouth watering burgers & shellfish plates. Wash them down with fantastic crafted beers, 22 to be exact. Don’t forget the decadent desserts… SERIOUSLY!!!


Great Greek

As soon as you walk through the doors of Avra Estiatorio, you are transported to an authentic & cozy Villa in Greece. The freshest selections from land & sea. I would recommend ordering a selection of Mezedes & wine with your friends & share. I actually loved the “Octapodi.”


Live Music & Dining

In a newly restored 18th century brownstone, the Black Duck Bar & Restaurant takes it’s name from the rum running boat know for it’s involvement in an incident that ended prohibition in the 1920s. Live jazz & cabaret music on the weekends & James Bond films on Sundays. The staff was fantastic & the food was great.


See & Be Seen

The secret of Cipriani isn't about what can be seen or touched, but what can be felt and sensed. The original, Harry’s Bar, a 1931 dream was established in Venice. A vision of simple luxury came to touch the souls of people all over the world. My experience of Cipriani Downtown was like no other; true service and devotion. You are not rushed off, no matter how crazy crowded it gets. Tantalizing people watching too… dinner & show.
