A couple weeks ago we took a trip to New England to visit DP's family and snuck in a 48-hour NYC prequel. It nearly coincided with our wedding anniversary (12 years!!) so we took the opportunity to celebrate lots. It was really special. Although I cannot believe how much and how often we ate in the name of being married.
I love love graffiti <3
(I'm still dreaming about this sheep's milk ricotta with lavender honey and toast!)
You & Me should go here!
Wallpaper people at The Standard Hotel…
How freaking inviting does this cafe look on a sunny fall day (This is also The Standard)??
The next day the skies were SO blue and cloudless!
Central Park stroll…
Hard to imagine a grumpy bubble maker but this guy was not nearly as bubbly as his bubbles:)
Cafe Gitane on Elizabeth Street is a new fave! We had iced tea under these umbrellas...
Grand Central Station has always rendered me a blatant tourist, even when I lived there. It's impossible to not stare at the ceiling with mouth agape. Isn't it staggeringly gorgeous?? We took a train from here up to Connecticut farmland. More pics of that to come:) Spoiler alert: there will be chickens.
P.S. Some other awesome places we found this trip:
60 Thompson for a perfectly sized SoHo hotel with comfy beds and great service
Piccola Cucina for amazingly authentic Sicilian in SoHo
David Burke Kitchen at THE JAMES was crazy decadent and delicious
Whynot for coffee and wine in the West Village
Organic Avenue for great juice
Erica Weiner for vintage and vintage-inspired jewelry that feels surprisingly fresh
P.P.S. My last NYC visit!
P.P.P.S. I like you.
