To start, the cost of The Surrey Hotel’s renovation was over $60million. The result? Spectacular, of course!

Build in the 1920’s, it’s one of the most luxurious hotels in town with almost 200 rooms and suites.

“Built in 1926 as a residence hotel, the original Surrey was home to many of New York’s most eccentric celebrities. JFK, Bette Davis, Claudette Colbert, and other famous faces who recognized the allure of exceptional, discreet service.

Moreover, in re-creating The Surrey, we collaborated with acclaimed interior designer Lauren Rottet of Rottet Studio—to maintain the integrity of The Surrey’s history while modernizing New York’s most intimate address. Rottet’s inspiration was a New York City townhouse passed down through the generations.”

In other words, if you have a super high-end lifestyle, but a very low-key mindset, this is the perfect place for you to stay.

You can surely expect a breathtaking experience. We’ll explain:

The hotel offers everything from a fantastic fitness center and spa treatments, to private cocktail experiences and private roof garden.

At the Pleiades Bar, decorated with an art deco vibe (bring us back to Coco Chanel’s time), you’ll be indulged by a unique cocktail experience. Who’s the name behind this all? The famous bartender, Darryl Chan. His Cranberry Granita Champagne Cocktail is a winner!

Here is what Gael Greene, of The New York Times, says about the dining experience:

“If you hunger for constancy and dignity, it’s time for Café Boulud. The big cheese himself, Daniel Boulud, may be downtown at Daniel, on the road peddling his pots, or cooking for charity. He’s given a talented protégé…leave to invent within his café’s stated quartet of themes—tradition, season, market, and a detour to foreign kitchens.”

Lastly, be sure to explore the neighborhood, where you’ll find fantastic restaurants, bar, numerous stores for the shop-a-holics.

And still, you’ll be steps from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the one and only, Central Park and other historical spots.

So, prepare yourself for a fantastic adventure in the Upper East Side of the city!

Located in the super trendy neighborhood of Williamsburg, in Brooklyn, Sweet Chick serves an American cuisine with a mix of Southern accents – as they say!

The food is locally sourced and the place is not that big, but extremely inviting.

During the weekends it’s quite full (which is a good sign, right?), and the hostess is very caring, which definitely makes the difference when the place is packed…but she can’t make miracles, so be sure to try and get there early, or just be patient.

What to order?? Tough to say…we’re sure you’ll be happy with anything you try, but of course their Chicken and Waffles is the best seller! We also like the salmon and the pancakes!

They also have a second place at LES (Lower East Side), in Manhattan. Plus, they already announced there Prospect Heights opening coming soon!

Oh! They don’t take reservations, so do try to arrive early since they get quite busy!

If you’re curious about exploring the neighborhood of Williamsburg, you should visit a few other spots. Try a few vintage shops selling high-end brands and grab the best soy chai at Woops Bakeshop. Still, you can have fun at Rough Trade store and finish your day visiting an authentic biergarten called Radegast Hall.

If you need help around the neighborhood to maybe plan our your day with the best spots to visit, contact us! Our experts will curate a customized agenda for you to visit the top spots based on your preferences and style!

Cherche Midi is another restaurant owned by the renowned restauranteur Keith McNally and again, he makes a perfect strike! The cuisine: obviously, French.

The team – with Chefs Daniel Parilla and Shane McBride – does make all the difference….and the guests? Well…you gotta go there to understand it!!!

A few plates you can try are the Prime Rib, the Lobster Ravioli, the roasted Chicken Breast, the Cherche Midi Burger, the Seared Salmon and the Angel Hair Pasta.

Oh! For dessert? Ahhh, the Chocolate Soufflé is our favorite, but you’ll be good with any other option too!

At La Esquina’s flagship spot, on the Soho-Nolita border, you can expect an amazing selection of Mexican food – from Mexican style grilled corn to ceviche and the traditional tacos.

Established in the year of 2006, its popularity is certainly worth the wait.

The menu is fantastic, so if you’re in doubt about what to try, fear not! You can order some dishes to share, so this way you’ll have a great time tasting a bit of it all.

If you want to take home a bit of their “Mexican taste”, they sell 4 salsas/dips that will spice up your day! You might find them “sold out”, but that’s probably a good sign, right? They are:

  • Roja: A charred salsa famous at the restaurant for its fresh, yet smoky taste featuring fire roasted tomatoes, garlic and onions;
  • Roja Hot: A spicy (but not too hot) version of their original salsa roja;
  • Verde: This refreshing salsa is zesty and features tomatillos, fire roasted onions, serrano peppers and cilantro;
  • Black Bean Dip: This smoky dip is one of Food & Wine Magazine’s favorite snacks! Smoky, yet sweet, this dip features black beans, fire roasted tomatoes, serrano peppers and cilantro.

Now, the secret!

Through a disguised door that reads “Employees Only” you’ll find an entrance to their famous basement restaurant. Some people get mistake by their café which is just around the corner, but that’s not it! The only way of going in, is with a reservation so be sure to do that.

Plus, they offer catering service and also have a few amazing products for sale at Goldbelly, like different salsas and black bean!

They opened a second place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, named “Café de la Esquina”. But, they didn’t stop there. They have a total of 4 locations for everyone’s delight!

We do recommend calling for reservation, so you can have a seamless experience, since it does get quite crowded.

What the NEW YORK TIMES says: “Speakeasy-channeling pantomine of illicit, exclusive pleasure.

As we mentioned, definitely one of NYC’s secrets worth sharing!

We know that SoHo and Nolita are neighborhoods with never ending spots to explore, we we will help you out a bit.

Have fun!

Hey, Steve! I want some handcrafted ice cream, please!

Dining Steve's Ice Cream Cookies'n'Cream

Steve’s Ice Cream started back in the early 1970’s as a small handcrafted ice cream shop with only the will of offering the most innovative “mix-ins” around.

I mean, who in the world doesn’t enjoy handcrafted ice cream? If this person exists, be careful with them! Ha! Just joking… But, we do know that New Yorkers are pretty fond of ice creams, since the ice cream shops are always overflowing with people, even in the winter.

In the beginning, they had a hunch that people out there would line up in huge lines to get a taste of their artisanal ice creams. They started out as a small little brand wanting to show the world their expertise. And, grew to become a brand that people not only lined up for their ice cream, but outbraved themselves in the middle of snow storms to guarantee their scoop!

Besides the traditional flavors, they also offer amazing non-dairy ice creams and sorbets.

With the years, and the renowned name they’ve got today, they explained that a few (not many), things changed.

“We still use “mix-ins” but now they’re a little more grown-up, with fresh, natural ingredients, and to create our signature flavors, we work directly with some of the most innovative and inspired artisans around. It took a while, but small-batch has finally gone big time. And that’s pretty sweet.”

They have some pretty interesting flavors like Pretzels, Honey Pistachio, Pies & Sweet Cream, Mexican Chili Chocolate, Southern Banana Pudding, Speculoos Cookie Butter and so many others!

Today, they are literally spread throughout the US. In NY, you can find them in several different markets in all the Boroughs – except Staten Island.

So, it shouldn’t be hard try some! I want some handcrafted ice cream!

In a nutshell, Sex on the Table is a full circle sensory experience that engages students during the cooking and dining process.
