I’m back in Connecticut for the next few days and I’m so excited because we’re heading to the Taylor Swift concert on Friday! Now that we’re back in Connecticut I probably make it into the city once every 2-3 weeks (except the summer when I try to spend as much time as I can on Nantucket). I usually try to schedule a couple engagements per trip to the city, so if I’m meeting with a brand or a PR firm in the afternoon I’ll also try to grab dinner with a girlfriend afterwards. I’ve actually been driving into the city and then having Will drive home once he’s out of work — it means I can have a glass of wine at dinner and he and I can spend an hour chatting or listening to an audio book in the car, so it’s a win-win if you ask me. 😉
I still love many of the spots I shared in my New York City guide and this 2015 post on my favorite restaurants in the city (I lived there 2013-2015), but I have to admit I feel a little out of the loop on what’s new and fun in the city these days. I’m always looking for cute new spots to grab dinner or drinks with friends and I know a ton of you live in New York so I would love to hear any of your suggestions!
I recently tried a new restaurant in Brooklyn called Pilot with my sister Reilly and it reminded me how much I used to enjoy taking pictures of my favorite spots around the city and sharing them on the blog. I’d love to update my New York City guide over the next year or two as I discover new favorites! Anyway Pilot is the same concept as Grand Banks in TriBeCa, both restaurants located on sailboats and both dreamy spots for a lobster roll and a glass of rosé. Pretty heavenly if you ask me!
A few of other favorite New York spots we’ve visited / revisited recently: Claudette, La Pecora Bianca, Mermaid Inn, Palma (always and forever), Tacombi… all good food, nothing fancy, and aesthetically pleasing! If you have any favorites along those lines, I am all ears!
