I don’t know how I haven’t gotten around to posting about Tipsy Parson before today because it is without a doubt one of my top five favorite restaurants in New York. If you’re visiting the city (or you live here and somehow haven’t already been), run, don’t walk. You will not be disappointed!
Why: Get. The. Brussels. Sprouts. A little sweet, a little spicy, and generally perfect. I like the chicory salad but I’ve been known to indulge in the mac and cheese if it’s freezing out and I need to warm up. The Tipsy Palmer cocktail is so good you’ll want more than one. Oh and I’d like to cover my life in their Brunschwig & Fils Bibliotheque wallpaper.
What: Toby’s Estate Coffee, the chicest coffee shop you ever did see. A Brooklyn favorite brought to the city and nestled within Club Monaco’s stunning flagship store.
Where: 160 5th Avenue, Flatiron
Why: Antiqued mirror menu, bistro chairs for catching up with a friend (or the New York Times), delicious cold brew coffee, dreamy white subway tile, conveniently located next to The Strand for leisurely book shop browsing. In other words, how soon can I move in? More New York City recommendations here.
