KBG and I initially set out with WE Perceive to share all that we discover about our post-grad lives and the fascinating cities we have chosen to experience them in.
I love telling people about what I love. So you can only imagine how much I love to show the people that I love what I love!
Yesterday my mom flew back to Santa Barbara and my NYC stay-cation came to an end; I don’t think we could have had more fun! Playing tour guide in New York City is the best-- there is never a shortage of new places to add to my NYC Favorites List. This makes it way easy to show people around town. Here’s a photo recap of my perfect stay-cay:
Italian spread from Eataly, a mirror selfie at The London hotel (confession: we moved back to the trusty Trump SoHo after a few days uptown), and a couple shots from one of my favorite places in New York City, Fonda Nolita (more on that later).
Overall, it was a perfect weekend, playing in my favorite city with my favorite person!
The most recent adds to my NYC Favorites List:
- The bar at The Clocktower. It is a brand new restaurant in the Edition Hotel in Flatiron. The food is beautiful and tasty, but even cooler, the restaurant has a feel like no other in this city (we can thank the wildly talented, English transplant chef Jason Atherton for that).
- Fonda Nolita for a casual lunch. They started as a food truck in Cancun! And it has such a Southern California vibe. (It would be so fun to have a party here).
- Any of the millions of refreshing TEQUILA cocktails around Manhattan. A year ago, you could not get me to take a single tequila shot. These days it’s my liquor of choice! (Thanks G). The best of the best:
- Quality Italian’s margarita (tequila and chili infused honey poured over a tricolor ice cube made of strawberry and jalepeno)
- The Smith’s Cucumber Loco (tequila, combier orange, lime, pinch of salt)
- Fonda Nolita’s Poloma (fresh grapefruit, club soda, & tequila)
- Koi’s Koi Diablo (tanteo tequila, muddled cucumber, lime juice).
The most important aspect of a stay-cation? Room service.
