Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Frieze New York opens tomorrow, and out this week is Whitewaller New York to guide you through the must-see and be-seen-at spots around town. This week, we’re sharing some “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, and consume in New York during the fair. Below, we’re sharing tips from Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat, co-founders of WantedDesign.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
The Bar Room at Tom Colicchio’s Fowler & Wells is quite amazing. Casa Mono is a classic in Gramercy. For a Brooklyn experience, try the High Tides cocktail at Dirty Precious and Runner & Stone in Gowanus for a cozy and unique place. Blanca is one of the most amazing culinary experiences in the East Williamsburg.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Love the Whitney to look at contemporary American art. The Noguchi Museum is beautiful. But art can be found everywhere in New York City, and this spring Public Art Fund is bringing Anish Kapoor’s Descension installation to Brooklyn Bridge Park.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
We love Brooklyn Bridge Park. It has the best view of Manhattan, and you feel like you are on vacation with the waterfront promenade, bikes, and fields. If you really need to relax and can take two hours, try Aire, the ancient baths in Tribeca (open late night).
