Jack’s Wife Freda, Uncle Boons, and Invisible Dog: Alireza Niroomand’s New York

By Whitewall

March 1, 2016

It’s Armory Arts Week! That means fairs, gallery shows, museum exhibitions, and plenty of events – all taking place here in New York. We are here to guide you through the must-see and be-seen-at spots around town. All week-long we’ll bring you “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, eat, and drink. Next up, General Manager of Sant Ambroeus Soho Alireza Niroomand.

First and foremost Sant Ambroeus, of course. I cannot have coffee anywhere else in the city! Then Jack’s Wife Freda, to visit my friend Dean and Maya for a quick bite. And here are my new finds: Mimi, a cute French restaurant on Sullivan; Uncle Boons for the best Thai; Babu ji, a gem of an Indian restaurant in the East Village.

I always love being a tourist in my own city. The Brooklyn Bridge always does it for me, as well as a stroll in the park with my kids. It reminds me how lucky I am to live in this city. Not to mention The Met, the MoMA, the Guggenheim, and The Whitney.

I highly suggest a visit at Invisible Dog, an artist residency in Brooklyn created by the amazing Lucien Zayan. It is the home to some of my favorite artists including Prune Nourry, Oliver Jeffers, etc.

Have you tried Aux Merveilleux de Fred in the West Village, a famous pastry shop that opened in NY? And the spa at The Greenwich Hotel!
