I missed my Sunday post last week as it seems to be that time of year when the days fly by and here we are with the wonderful smells of Thanksgiving just around the corner.
Last week I had the opportunity to travel to New York and I say this because I know many of you can relate, what is it about Autumn in New York? There’s definitely something magical about it. I had a couple of days to myself and I found myself walking around Central Park, visiting The Met, falling in love with a photo simply named “Subway Florist”, which grabbed my eye immediately and afterwards, as I was walking around the Upper East Side, I found this cozy French Brasserie, Jacques. It was exactly the kind of place I love – intimate, cozy and warm. If you’re in New York, definitely make the time to find this hidden gem https://www.jacquesbrasserie.com/. I ordered the mussels, a cheese plate and a glass of wine, that came highly recommended by the mysterious and alluring bartender. He had that [obvious] je ne sais quoi, though he did know his French wine because he talked me into ordering a second glass. Yikes.
Walking the streets of New York made me miss the “bright lights, big city” vibe of San Francisco, though as fast paced as it is, I was happy to get home to Nashville. I am in awe of how much my life has changed within the past year and I am grateful for every moment.
Other places worth checking out in New York, which I frequent when visiting:
- SoHo: Balthazar http://balthazarny.com/
- MidTown: The BlueBell Cafe http://www.thebluebellcafenyc.com/
- MidTown: Rocco’s Steakhouse http://www.roccosteakhouse.com/
- Bronx: Dominick’s http://www.bronxlittleitaly.com/merchants/restaurants/dominicks-restaurant/
I hope you enjoy the photos below as much as I enjoyed taking them. While these are only a glimpse into my trip, I hope they warm your heart as much as they did mine. Until next time New York.
Have a wonderful week ahead.
