Although I’ve only lived in New York (specifically, the West Village) for 3 years, I can confidently say that my favorite spots were quickly acquired. Below are just a few! From a super-chic nail salon to mesmerizing museum exhibits, enjoy this list of Manhattan must-sees.
A quick coffee pick-me-up at: Happy Bones in Soho.
Tortoise spoons, striped straws, and marble tables. Need I say more?
Fiesta time! Step into Mexico City at: Tacombi fonda Nolita.
Transport yourself to summer with their verde juice, crispy fish tacos, and guacamole.
The most unique margarita are can be found at: The Wayland in the East Village.
Get a dose of greens with your tequila!
Get inspired at a museum: Hall of Gems at AMNH on the UWS.
Far better than Cartier or Tiffany if you love sparkly rocks!
Try on all of the baubles at: Ginette NY in the West Village.
If you love a good lace monogram, you’ll die over Ginette.
Create your own flower bouquet at: The Meadow in the West Village.
Take your pick from fresh blooms, imported sea salt, and gourmet chocolate.
People watching prime time: Chelsea art galleries.
Stroll through the west side and see modern art (as well as super stylish gallery-goers).
Get polished at: Ten Over Ten in Tribeca.
Chanel and NARS polish, iPads instead of magazines, and plush armchairs. A no-brainer for nail lovers! I recommend the original Tribeca location.
The best macarons are from: Francois Payard on the UES.
Carly and I both agree that they are the best in the city!
Gather the girls for brunch at: Reynard at The Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Order the french fries and cinnamon toast for the perfect Sunday meal.
