City Guide: Holiday’s in New York
After a three hour flight from Miami to New York, the first stop was Barney’s, of course! Since the holiday’s are here the number one thing to see in New York is the windows of all the shops, which are decorated with all the latest designs. When I got to Barney’s the first thing I bought was a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti’s from their latest collection. After shopping for a while I went to the cafe that they have downstairs and got a fruit platter which was delicious.
A few shopping bags later I arrive back to my hotel to get ready for tonight’s adventures.
With my Alice and Olivia knee high heels, Burberry scarf, and my favorite BCBG trench coat I was ready to go. The first stop was Cipriani’s which is a famous Italian restaurant that invented the famous drink, the Bellini. It’s original location is in Venice, Italy and it is called “Harry’s Bar”. I have been to both and being in the one in New York made me feel like I was back in Italy, with amazing food and service.
The famous Bellini, which is made of Prosecco and peach puree.
After dinner I headed to one of the most talked about places in New York. The beautiful Baccarat Hotel Bar which is decorated in Baccarat glass, when you order a drink the glasses are also Baccarat.
The next day I went to Sarabeth’s for brunch which is a nice place on the Upper East Side. The service was good but the food was better. The only downside is that there is a huge line out the door, but the wait is worth it.
That night I went to see “On Your Feet!” which is the story of how Gloria and Emilio Estefan rose to stardom. The play was amazing, filled with good music and incredible actors. The actors at one point jumped off the stage and took people from the audience to dance with them. Emilio Estefan was also really close with my family so it was nice to actually see the story instead of hearing about it for so long.
The next day, I had brunch at Bagatelle. The whole theme of the restaurant makes you feel like you are in St. Tropez. They have a DJ that plays good music and waiters that bring out champagne bottles with sparkler toppings. It was cool restaurant to have brunch in and the Nutella french toast is delicious.
After brunch it was back to the basics, shopping.
