• Sweetbriar in NOMAD (Manhattan) Billed as upscale comfort food, it hits the mark. Using “live fire” cooking to enliven the dishes. Maple Duroc ribs were a standout!
  • Menkoi Soto is a little hole in the wall ramen shop in the village. If you like your broth chicken based, totally worth a try!
  • Molly’s Cupcakes in the village is clearly my fave cupcake in the city. Peach Cobbler for the win every time.
  • Arturo Sandoval guested with Orpheus this week. I love that man! First of all: talent. Secondly, he was just so fun. He had Carnegie Hall swinging.
  • Brooklyn Coffee and Tea Festival- SO MUCH TEA. The problem with festivals like this is that I start to lose my ability to distinguish taste after the first four cups…I did get a bunch of samples and bought some gorgeous purple tea which was sourced in Africa and is supposed to have antioxidants and such. Also black tea from Nepal and ginger from India
  • Had to go car shopping with my Mom- when she asked which one I’d buy I went with the sportscar from the Ford dealer next door…I did like the doggie ramp though…
  • Pete’s Tavern is one of the oldest establishments in NYC- it had been closed for the better part of COVID, so glad it’s back to live another day
  • I know- another Jacques Louis David- and I didn’t really like this one either…
  • Museum at FIT- always does a lovely fashion exhibit, and it’s free!!!

  1. So many cool things to see this week!! The ladies fashions are so interesting and mind-boggling at the same time….some of them. When I see the floor-length garb of days gone by and the yards and yards of fabric worn all at one time, I personally can’t imagine being able to get much of anything done in a day’s time……other than lounging around….LoL……..

  2. What an inspiring week–from food to fashion! My favorite though is the plaque honoring Pete’s along with O. Henry and Bemelmans. What a great literary connection, and I am so happy that this restaurant was able to survive the lockdown!
