Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
For Whitewaller‘s November New York issue, out this week for The Salon Art + Design fair, we handpicked a few insiders—a select group of those in-the-know on all things New York—that shared with us how to navigate the city this fall. To kick things off, we have Phyllis Lally Seevers, director at Kim Heirston Art Advisory, share her top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax this week.
WHERE TO EAT
The restaurant at The NoMad Hotel— nothing comes close to the foie gras roasted chicken followed by a Milk & Honey dessert. A nightcap in The Library, just off the restaurant’s atrium, is the cherry on top.
WHERE TO SIP
The tiny bar at The Waverly Inn. I may be slightly biased, as we live a few doors away. Still, it’s a classic. Thanks to Kim [Heirston], Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle Hotel is now a close second.
WHERE TO SEE ART
After four years at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, Chelsea is still my spot come Thursday nights. The caliber of programs stretching from West 17th Street to upwards of West 30th Street is hard to beat.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
For the wholesome Sunday afternoon type, it usually starts with brunch at Jack’s Wife Freda, then on to the small street fairs in NoLIta. For the fun you do not want to remember, cocktail lounge Paul’s Baby Grand is your spot.
WHERE TO RELAX
A massage at Haven spa on Mercer Street, followed by a matinée at the Angelika Film Center.
TOP SHOW(S) TO SEE IN NOVEMBER
Cheim & Read’s Joan Mitchell show is starred on my list and Kim’s. She knows the work cold.
