Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Frieze New York opens on May 5, and in celebration, the spring 2017 edition of Whitewaller New York is out. It is there 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 Kulapat Yantrasast, Founder and Creative Director of wHY.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
My EOD watering hole is always the bar at Spring Place, just blocks from our New York Studio, where Bruno the bartender makes ice-cold martinis while you converse with no screaming, a rarity in New York City. Foodwise, Omen in SoHo is home’s comfort food, but lately I venture a block south to Hirohisa, lured by their ridiculous medium-rare Washu Gyu and Uni Don.
WHERE TO SEE ART
My art/museum day is a list of hit-and-run on Fifth Avenue. I do this every free weekend in town starting at the Jewish Museum, powered by Russ & Daughters’ Smoked Whitefish Chowder, then the Cooper Hewitt, the Guggenheim, the Neue, The Met and The Met Breuer, and concluding at MoMA for new shows and drinks at The Modern.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
Fun in New York for me is walking the city; east side, west side, or lopsided, walking New York City with friends is a joy. I love Madison Avenue on a weekday or the whole Chelsea gallery blocks on a Saturday, but always end up at The Mercer lobby, for old times’ sake.
