Springtime in New York


When the weather finally turned lovely in New York, we were more than ready.  Coats and sweaters were stuffed triumphantly into the backs of closets, out came the sundresses and shorts, and all our activities shifted outside. 





Leisurely italian brunch on the patio at the gorgeous La Bottega. Course after course of crusty bread spread with delicious, chocolately Nutella, piles of burrata and fresh tomatoes, truffled margarita pizza (!!!) and baked eggs, accompanied by a rather indulgent number of bottles of cold prosecco. There are such an outrageous number of places to enjoy al fresco brunch in New York that it deserves its own post, but right off the bat I have to recommend the beautiful secret garden behind Hudson Clearwater, the bustling patio at Bar Pitti, and the outdoor seating at Chelsea's fantastic (and always packed) Cookshop.



Strolling the Highline, Soho and TriBeCa is the best way I can think of to work off all that food and wine


And, naturally, a quick stop at Laduree for sweets and iced coffee.

  3. haha that's true. I love food so much that when I visited, I spent most of my shopping budget on going to different restaurants and pleasing my stomach. I am pretty bad like that. What are you favorite weekend spots? Maybe you could do a blog post?

  5. Great idea Colette, there are just so many they really require their own post. I personally think the season really matters, some places around here are so light and airy - great for summer, while some are really at their best on a cozy cold night. I'll get a post up for the best autumn spots very soon, check back!
