NYC Guide Sunday, February 3, 2019 0 Travels No tags 11 Where to eat: Eataly, ABC Kitchen, Sant Ambroeus, Dumbo House Eataly: The Eataly concept was born from Oscar Farinetti’s idea sketched on a piece of paper. The idea was simple: to gather under one roof high-quality food at sustainable and reasonable prices for all, celebrate Italian biodiversity, and create an informal, natural, and simple place to eat, shop, and learn.ABC Kitchen: Chic New American eatery via Jean-Georges Vongerichten sourcing local, organic ingredients. Serving everything from pizza, pasta, sashimi, and salads. Sant Ambreous: Inspired by the story of the fourth century’s Saint Ambrogio — the patron saint of Milan. With this, Sant Ambroeus was born, and a devoted following soon emerged. It didn’t take long for the vibrant, welcoming café to become the meeting place for the local intelligentsia, who would begin their day with Sant Ambroeus’ perfectly-crafted cappuccino and sweet cornetto, pop in for lunch to savor a crusty panini, and spend their evening enjoying classic favorites.Dumbo House: The latest Soho house to emerge to Brooklyn, NY. A must try is Cecconi’s Dumbo: serves hand-made pasta, seafood and dishes from Italy using the finest ingredients.If you’re a member of Dumbo house, you’ll have access to even more restaurants inside. What to do: The Oculus, Galerie Perrotin, Broadway Show, The Met Museum The Oculus: The hub replaces the PATH train station that was destroyed during the 9/11 attacks. Over 12 years in the making, the new train station is symbol of both governmental waste and architectural excess. Its centerpiece is the Oculus, a mind-boggling glass-and-steel structure designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava to look like a dove in flight, but it actually more closely resembles a pair of ragged claws, scuttling across the sands of Lower Manhattan. Inside you can find stores, restaurants and more. Galerie Perrotin: Emmanuel Perrotin founded his first gallery in 1990 at the age of 21. He has since opened over 18 different spaces with the aim to continue offering increasingly vibrant and creative environments to experience artists’ works. Perrotin has galleries in Paris, Hong Kong, New York, Seoul, Tokyo, and Shanghai. What’s even more amazing? You can appreciate different all the art exhibitions for free!A Matinee Broadway Show: One of my favorite things to do with Perry in the big apple is seeing a matinee show. Save this activity for a rainy or chilly day!The Met: The Met presents over 5,000 years of art from around the world for everyone to experience and enjoy. The Museum lives in three iconic sites in New York City—The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer, and The Met Cloisters.
