Fall 2014 Market – New York

Day 1 – Travel Day: This trip Patty and I stayed at the Dream Hotel Downtown in the Meatpacking District.  We like to try out a different hotel every time we go to NYC so that we can get to know the different neighborhoods.  The jury is still out on my favorite area of the city.  I have to say, I’m really liking the Meatpacking/Chelsea area. The Dream

The hotel was great!!  (Just make sure your room isn’t near the elevators – it was a little loud). DreamroomPhotos from DreamHotel.comUSAflagdreamhotel

We had dinner at Tipsy Parson.  Southern meets the city – super cute decor and very filling food.  The warm kale salad and the mac & cheese are a must.  And the pork chop was very delicious as well! tipsyparsonPhotos from TipsyParson.com

After a long day on our feet we met up for dinner & drinks with the girls from The Lovely! Julie, Sarah, Emme, Patty & I headed to Soho to an excellent Thai restaurant called Kittichai.  We loved the ambiance here.  I recommend the lettuce wraps, the tuna tartare and the steak.  The steak was especially delicious!! KITTICHAIPhotos from kennected & kittichai.com.

Day 3 – 2nd day of marketOutfit: Nili Lotan turtleneck ruana (We will be carrying Nili Lotan at Milly & Grace and a version of this will be available this fall!!), Blank Denim gray jeans (available at Milly & Grace), Henri Bendel collection bag, Ralph Lauren boots, Gillian Julius bracelet (available at Milly & Grace), Chanel Sunglasses & Chanel Lipgloss in Wild Rose.FMoutfit2For dinner we met up with my friend Amanda at La Esquina.  (Amanda is getting married next weekend!! Remember I went to her bachelorette weekend in Mexico??) This place was too good – shh!  Don’t tell anyone!!  An authentic Mexican restaurant with the most outrageously delicious grilled Mexican corn (this is a must!).  Amanda knew what to order so we followed her lead – I recommend the tuna & chicken tostadas and the steak & chicken tacos.  The only negative was that their classic margarita wasn’t great but I will definitely be going back!laesquinaPhotos from LaEsquina.com

Day 4 – Last day of the market: Outfit: Ralph Lauren sweater & turquoise necklace, Blank Denim jeans, Steve Madden booties, Coach bag, Chanel sunglasses & Kevin Aucoin lipgloss in Hydraa (available at Beauty by the Sea on Nantucket!)FMoutfit3For our last night, we indulged ourselves and had dinner at L’Artusi in the West Village.  This Italian place knocked our socks off.  Everything about it.  The service, the ambiance, the decor, the drinks and especially the food.  This place was definitely my favorite of the lot.  I recommend the housemade ricotta, the mushroom salad, the orecchiette, and the chicken.
