With love from NY
February 12, 2015 - in Category: We Love

Here’s a few of our favourite things from our visit to the city that never sleeps…


1. Dean & Deluca

We love the buzz of NY’s favourite designer deli, slap bang on the corner of Broadway & Prince in Soho. Prices can be eye watering (the most expensive carrots we’ve ever seen!) but a wander through the aisles stacked full of delicious treats and amazing packaging is aways worthwhile. This visit we were wowed by cookies the size of dinner plates; lovely packaging from Askinosie Chocolate and heart tattoo Valentine biscuits.   On your way out, grab a cup of deeply rich hot chocolate, perch by the window to sip it as you watch this crazy corner of the world go by.  Dean & Deluca, 560 Broadway (at Prince), New York, NY 10012

2.  Helen Ficalora

You’ll find lucky charms aplenty crammed inside one of the smallest stores in this huge city. Helen Ficalora has stores dotted in a few major US cities but we bet this one on the edge of SoHo is the cutest.  We went in search of a moon to add to our collection, and came away with a beauty, and a tiny bell to keep in company.  Be warned – it’s impossible to stop at one.Helen Ficalora, 21 Cleveland Place (between Spring & Kenmare), New York, NY 10021

3. Ed’s Lobster Bar

We’re on the search for the best lobster roll in town and this visit, added Ed’s to the shortlist.  Right across the street from Helen Ficalora, it has oysters from six states and a boatload of ideas of things to do with a lobster. We like ours in a soft bread roll with a squeeze of lemon, perfect skinny chips and a full fat Coca Cola. Delicious.  Ed’s Lobster Bar, 222 Lafayette Street (between Spring and Kenmare), New York, NY 10012

4. Queen of the Night

‘Drink, dine & be dangerously delighted by the fusion of theatre, cuisine, magic, fashion & nightlife.’ That’s what it said on the website and that’s what Queen of the Night delivered in spades. Hosted in an 1930’s club which was left empty for 60 years, and now brilliantly dressed to create the perfect setting for a sexy, mysterious show.  The invite asks you to ‘dress to please the Queen’.  Anything goes. There’s just one rule for the evening – say yes to everything.  An experience you are unlikely to forget in a hurry. Go.  queenofthenightnyc.com
