To start, we were thrilled to be part of an exclusive Blogger’s Bruch, hosted by Brick & Portal and Ian M. Crumm. We were hosted inside a private space at a fantastic Italian restaurant in Soho, named Mamo NYC.

The restaurant has beautiful brick walls with huge vintage movie posters, the food is great and it’s perfect for any type of occasion. After all, there is no need for an excuse when we talk about Italian cuisine, right? We are huge fans, for sure!

The group was amazing and the food was delicious – as you can see in the pictures. Conversations were very interesting and resolved not only around experiences and peculiarities about the Social Media industry, but also lifestyle, travel, hospitality and other priceless topics!

In addition, the organization was flawless and it was an honor to be part of it!


Take a look at what we had to eat:

Antipasti

  • Insalata di lenticchie e gamberi – Shrimp and lentils salad
  • Prosciutto di Parma – Tomato, cantal cheese, prosciutto
  • Uova strapazzate al pomodoro – Scrambled eggs with pomodoro sauce

Primi e Secondi

  • Rigatoni alla carbonara – Rigatoni with carbonara sauce
  • Penne all’arrabbiata – Penne arrabbiata style
  • Pizza tigullio – Pizza with potatoes, pesto sauce and beans

Desserts

  • Mixed selection

Thank you Brick & Portal and Ian M. Crumm for inviting us to be part of this great event!

Plus, we also fell in love the the candle in our gift bag by Alchemy Produx. Can’t wait for them to start selling in New York.

This was the first of many Blogger brunch we’ll be attending, and we can’t wait for the next ones to come!

So, be sure to check out Brick & Portal online store and shop-away!

What is NYC Hush Hush Tips?

We invite renowned and extremely influential people from all over the globe to share their NYC secret tips!

Natalie Klein, founder of the luxury multi-brand boutique nkStore in São Paulo, Brazil, launched her brand back in 1997.

She was quite young, but success was inevitable for this amazing woman!

In only a short time, she created, what is today, one of the most important fashion brands in Brazil.

Furthermore, with an amazing professional and personal journey, she was nominated by BOF – Business of Fashion, one of the most “talented retailers shaping the global fashion industry” in the #Bof500 initiative.

 

But, what is the BoF 500?

“The BoF 500 is the definitive professional index of the people shaping the $2.4 trillion fashion industry, hand-selected by the editors of The Business of Fashion, based on hundreds of nominations received from current BoF 500 members, extensive data analysis and research.”

Pretty amazing nomination, right!?

So, here are the best NYC gems and secrets that she loves:


Devera

Curiosities Insider Interviews Natalie Klein De Vera Crosby

“Devera is an amazing vintage jewelry store that mixes Federico De Vera’s sensibility for antiques with his jewelry design talent!”

The brand was first launched in San Francisco, back in 1991 with a creative approach to showcasing some of the most unique and singular objects and its beauties.

Furthermore, the New York location was then opened in 2003, due to Francisco’s desire to showing the world everything that he’s collected, his passion, his curious state of being about the natural world!

As Federico explains better:

“The gallery shows a finely curated selection including Venetian glass, Japanese lacquer, ivory carvings, 18th century religious figures and antique jewelry. Another unique focus is de Vera jewelry incorporating rare antique elements such as Roman intaglios and Georgian brooches, with precious gemstones including rose-cut diamonds, baroque pearls and Sardinian coral.”

Sasabune

Curiosities Insider Interviews Natalie Klein Sasabune

“Sasabune is a very traditional Japanese restaurant at the Upper East Side with a “Trust Me” menu – you’ll eat what Chef Kenji Takahashi prepares! It’s always a different experience.”

The restaurant is exactly the type of restaurant that we love to talk about and to show people what New York City is about!

It is very small, and décor is very simple.

But, then again, who need fancy furniture to eat well, right? The focus is definitely on the food, that is to-die-for!

They only serve the Omakase, the chef’s tasting menu, so you’ll have to trust and enjoy!

Plus, for drinks be sure to experiment their different sakes. If you’re not sure which one to order, they are always happy to help you pair it with your dishes!

Location: 401 East 73rd Street

BDDW

In addition, all items and idealized and designed by the Founder, Tyler Hays, at his Philadelphia Studio.

The Beatrice Inn

“The Beatrice Inn is, in my opinion, one of the best places to hang out with great food and cocktails. A footnote on the menu reads “Photography is not permitted”, so just enjoy your food!”

The place is a hot spot for celebrities and is a very high-end chophouse in the West Village.

Ans, as they explain:

“Owned by the lauded Chef Angie Mar, and her partner Melissa Merrill Keary, the Beatrice Inn is the edgy, underground version of the traditional New York chophouse.”

So, if you’re a meat eater, this is definitely a place to go!

Location: 285 West 12th Street

Freemans Restaurant

Curiosities Insider Interviews Natalie Klein Freemans

“I love Freemans. Even though it’s becoming more and more well known, the experience of walking into this suspicious alley it always thrilling. The food is great, as is the crowd!”

And, we also love Freemans, and have featured them before! Along the alley you need to walk though to get to the restaurant, you’ll find a few great graffiti works on the brick walls. Perfect for that Instagram-photo-moment!

At the very, very, very end, you’ll find this beyond charming turquoise blue, wooden door surrounded by countless vases with plants and flowers.

UNFORTUNATELY THIS STORE PERMANENTLY CLOSED!

Milk & Honey

Curiosities Insider Interviews Natalie Klein Milk and Roses

“One of the top secrets in town with the best dry Martini is called Milk & Honey! The bar is “against celebrity-obsessed nightlife” and has a list of strict house rules to follow.”

We just love secret places and we’ve written about other speakeasy spots through out the website.

Not only the experience of searching for it is super exciting, but once you do find it and walk in, it feels like your entering a parallel universe.

Usually they are hidden behind secret doors, or in basements, and even in the back of other venues, that you can access only with a secret code through a little entrance.

We love it!

Location: 134 Eldridge Street

UNFORTUNATELY THIS STORE PERMANENTLY CLOSED!

Lastly, Thank you, Natalie, for sharing your best NYC gems tips exclusively with us!!!

The Foragers City Grocer opened in 2005 in DUMBO and carries locally grown organic produce, pastured meats and fresh local dairy.

Foragers is your go-to destination for the best, carefully-selected, locally sourced, and artfully prepared food. The demand we saw for clean and ethical foods inspired us to open our market in Chelsea, which also includes a restaurant and wine shop.

All the products featured come from trusted producers, or hand picked from our own farm in Canaan, New York.

The clients like to know where their food is grown, processed and handled.

Plus, they are interested in learning about the entire process and being sure that they are consuming what there is best in the market!

So, as they explain:

“Our sourcing standards ensure that every product you find at our stores is made honestly with all natural ingredients, grown with integrity, and raised humanely.”

This type of market is right up our alley, so we love every single aspect of it, support them, and hope to spread the work to other like minded people.

In addition, the restaurant is called Table. It runs under the direction of Executive Chef, Nickolas Martinez, and is more than a farm-to-table restaurant. They also grow their own food! Therefore, besides a delicious dinner, you must try their brunch that happens on the weekends.

They have a store in Chelsea too. So, if you don’t want to commute all the way into Brooklyn, to shop, you have another great option!

And, if you want to explore other farm-to-table restaurants, we actually recommend heading upstate NY.

There are countless close by day trips that you can plan for a different weekend. For help organizing it all, contact our concierge experts. In sum, they can cater an exclusive and memorable experience for you!

For Corporate requests, contact us and let us know how we can assist.
