NYC Places to Check Out

NYCI went to New York City for a few days recently and was lucky enough to be able to visit my usual NYC go-tos for shopping and dining and was also able to try some new places out that are worthy of recognition. If you are like me and love exploring shops and trying out new dining destinations, check these out if you’ve never been before!

Per Usual

Wink Boutique
This boutique is primarily filled with accessories (think bags by Foley & Carina, unique delicate jewelry and funky shoes) but they also carry their own signature clothing line, which is adorable (but pricey!). I snagged a great pink stone gold solitaire necklace that I’ve never seen anywhere else. Always my stop-over for unique, trendy finds. 155 Spring Street, Soho

The Cupping Room Café
In my opinion, this is one of the best breakfast/lunch places in NYC. They make a killer BLT! I almost always order the apple and cheddar omelet. I drag everyone here every time I’m in NYC and hail cabs to take me there even when I’m staying uptown. Perfect place to start before you get your shopping on! 359 West Broadway, Soho

Olive & Bette’s
Directly across from Wink, this tiny jam-packed boutique is filled to the brim with great lines like Susana Monaco, Trina Turk, T-bags and more. It’s fun to rummage through the racks and scoop up guaranteed-cute items. 158 Spring Street, Soho

Dos Caminos
One word: Guacamole. I can’t find a better place to experience good Mexican food and drinks paired with a sexy atmosphere. Love it ten times over. 825 Third Ave at 50th


The Newbies

La Focaccia
A friend took me here and told me their penne vodka was delicious. It was. This tiny place is right in the middle of all that the West Village has to offer. Its dim lighting and close tables make it feel like a real neighborhood joint and the huge glass windows make people watching really fun. Within 5 minutes of each other, Liv Tyler walked by, followed by the magician, Cris Angel. I was impressed with my view…and food! 51 Bank Street, West Village

Welfie and Nell Bar
I can’t even find a website for this hidden bar (it’s possible the spelling is off?) but it’s a really good neighborhood place with a great selection of draft beers, wooden stools and benches, dim lights and exposed brick. My friend said it reminded him of an old English cottage. Great place to meet a friend and catch up over a drink. West 4th and 10th Street, West Village

Topshop
This three-level oh-so-London shopping destination was intense. The prices are not as inexpensive as everyone thinks (on average, dresses were about $90) and the sizes were all off! You could be a 2 in one thing and an 8 in another – no joke. Every item had something unique about it – a strange cut, a random flap, a bright neon color, etc. Very English! After 3 trips to the dressing room and 2 hours and 45 minutes later I actually did walk out with a few items I was excited about. Cool rings, a black ruffle jumper and a one-shoulder jersey dress. Score! 1 West 37th Street, Soho
