When my boyfriend and I discussed our engagement this winter, I had two requirements for a ring - no diamonds and it had to be antique. I’d never been the Holly Golightly-type of gal to ogle in front of a Tiffany’s store. I’ve [...]

Vegas Fine Dining by Belinda Henley

Guest Contributor | July 24th, 2012

Las Vegas gets a bad wrap for many things. Affectionately, or perhaps unaffectionately referred to as ‘Sin City’, it is certainly not widely known for its cuisine offerings. But, it should be. Vegas has more Michelin starred restaurants per capita, than anywhere else in the world. The last time I visited almost ten years ago [...]

Eateries We Love - The Brooklyn Star

Deana Bianco | June 23rd, 2012

Comfort food is the rage in Brooklyn at the moment. The race is on between restaurants for the best friend chicken, biscuits and mac and cheese. Sick of waiting 30 minutes for tables at popular spots like Egg and Pies ‘n’ Thighs, I have become a loyal patron of The Brooklyn Star. [...]

Philip Johnson’s Glasshouse

Katie Lockhart | May 29th, 2012

A short train ride from New York to New Cannan, step across the road from the train station to the information office and check in. A short ride in a mini van to the Glasshouse and you are there. The idyliic hideaway that was designed by architect Philip Johnson for himself and partner [...]

One thing I’ve complained about living in Brooklyn is the lack of movie theaters. All that has changed with the Nitehawk Cinema located on Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg. It is the PERFECT date night place. Not only do they have new indie releases BUT they also screen classics like Twin Peaks: Fire [...]

Eateries We Love - Brasserie Terminus Nord in Paris

They’ve been shucking oysters and stacking shellfish over ice into platters of “fruits de mer” at Brasserie Terminus Nord since 1925. This Paris brasserie is still superb and the best news, it is bang opposite the Eurostar terminal.
The chic way to travel; arrive at Gare du Nord two hours ahead of departure [...]

Good. Cheap. Italian. Food. These are four words that are perfect for when you are picking up the tab. Il Passatore, located off of Bushwick Avenue, should be a go to spot for both New Yorkers and visitors. The atmosphere is cozy and quaint so make reservations [...]

Coffee We Love - Toby’s Estate Coffee in Brooklyn

Deana Bianco | January 30th, 2012

Toby’s Estate has mastered the coffee house formula: great coffee, relaxing atmosphere and knowledgeable baristas. Toby’s first opened fifteen years ago in Sydney, Australia so they are not really the new kids on the block when it comes to coffee. It is one of the only spots where my boyfriend, who is a picky [...]
