Best breakfast? A new restaurant for down home comfort food, my new favorite is Tipsy Parsons in Chelsea. Still best NYC bagel and smoked fish is Murray’s!
Best place for lunch? Bottino on 10th Avenue in Chelsea provides the most scrumptious sandwiches, fresh salads, friendly help…makes it the best take out when rushing about on appointments or we use them to cater our presentations. Everyone love them.
Best place for dinner? Locanda Verde rocks!
Best bar/nightspot? Lure in Soho is always fun, people there know me and always treat me and my friends special. Love Josh who give Lure great energy.
Best store? Paragon Sports is not a boutique which right now most clothing stores bore me, but Paragon excites me when enter the store because it represents fun to me.
Best bookshop? 192 Books is a small neighborhood store where they are always helpful and have great selections of books.
Best art gallery? I live in the center of ART in Chelsea. Love the whole area.
Best place for people watching? SNY!!!!
Best kept secret? Under my building there is an Olympic size swimming pool only open to residents which is awesome. It’s my sanctuary in this city where I can relax and swim with huge arch windows over looking the courtyard, beautiful tile and always clean.
