NYC TRAVEL DIARY

New York City is one of my top favorites to date. I am lucky enough to travel to the city multiple times a year. There are so many different areas of the city that I love, I decided to just break up the post to the different spots I stay each trip and what I did in those areas. This trip I stayed in NOHO which is just north of Houston Street, downtown. I have to say that the vibe of downtown NYC probably fits me a little more. Don’t get me wrong, uptown is amazing too, but downtown is a little younger, artsier crowd. I felt very at home.

Here are some of my favorites and recommendations from the trip!

Brunch Spots & Favorite Restaurants 

Lafayette Grand Café & Bakery

I love the atmosphere here and the food is light and delicious. The cocktails are also great. Last time I went, Rosie Huntington Whitley was sitting next to me, if that describes the vibe. 

The Dutch

This place is so fun for a Saturday night with a group. Great energy and food. I suggest the seafood with a side of fries and a great glass of wine! 

GATO

Gato is great for a heartier meal. It is Bobby Flay’s restaurant offering Spanish-accented Mediterranean fare in a hip space with a large bar.

Bond Street

Gigi Hadid notes this place as her favorite sushi restaurant and it does not disappoint. The vibe is low lit and very NYC. You might need the flashlight on your phone to read the menu, but it’s very mysterious and romantic.
il Buco

We did a group order and ordered a bunch of stuff to share. Literally, everything we got was amazing, but two of my faves were the Hamachi and the Pulpo a la Gallega. The tagliatelle was also great for a table share.

Mother’s Ruins

This is a great dive bar, it can be a little loud, but always full of energy and a great place to mix and mingle with local New Yorkers.

SHOPPING IN SOHO

ZARA
503 Broadway, New York, NY 10012

I always hit up the Zara and All Saints first. I do recommend going on a weekday if possible to Zara. It’s a bit crazy on the weekends.

ALL SAINTS

512 Broadway, New York, NY 10012

This trip was especially great because All Saints was having a huge 60% off sale and they still are… shop the sale here.

Bloomingdales

504 Broadway, New York, NY 10012

I typically love the Bloomingdales in Soho as well, although this time around it was a bit sparse. Hoping it was just the in-between seasons though.

SHOP THE LOOK
I stayed in an Air B and B on Broadway. Location was amazing and extremely walkable.
My only suggestion is to ask the owner if there will be an elevator. Ours was a 5-floor walkup and we were on the fifth floor. Not the best for carrying my large suitcase. I didn’t have to work out for the week though.
