I still can’t believe we spent an entire month there. We had the most amazing weather (it was in the 40s and 50s!) the entire time, and I think it may have rained twice. So every day Linky and I would go on marathon walks from one end of the island to the other, exploring different neighborhoods and discovering neat places. Then there were outings sans Linky – mental health dates just by myself, date nights with Andrew, and a girls’ night out too. It was such a fun month. Here are a few of the places I bookmarked as new favorites during our New York adventure…
Food + Drink
North End Grill – This Danny Meyer establishment does seasonal cuisine really really well. The drinks are delicious and innovative and service is top notch.
Hudson Clearwater – A cozy and beautiful space filled with beautiful people. Simple and tasty seasonal fare and the fact that the entrance is “hidden” is the cherry on top.
Doughnut Plant – Such. Good. Doughnuts. I’m still thinking about them. The pistachio yeast was my favorite.
Milk + Honey – A speakeasy with no menu. You tell them what you like, they create a drink for you. We liked the Ex-Pat.
Shops + Boutiques
Steven Alan – Women’s clothing and jewelry.
Canvas – Beautiful things for the home.
Schoolhouse Electric – Another store with beautiful things for the home.
Books of Wonder – This bookshop has such a great selection of both classic and modern children’s books.
Playing Mantis – The handmade wooden toys here are unbelievable. I wanted to buy everything for Lincoln.
Otte – Women’s clothing and jewelry.
