WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Minnie’s has now become the official local spot for the gallery and our friends. It has a great combination of tasty and healthy food. My favorite is the Vegetable and Egg Fried Quinoa. I also recently discovered JaJaJa Mexicana! It has delicious and creative drinks and tasty tacos. Order the Cilantro and Mezcal cocktail!

WHERE TO SEE ART
I really enjoy the galleries on the Lower East Side: Pierogi, Spencer Brownstone, and Rachel Uffner, for example, have such strong and varied programs. It makes our home, Suffolk Street, a very enriching experience. I can’t wait to see “Radical Women” at the Brooklyn Museum—a fantastic reappraisal of Latin American female artists that is long overdue.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
I live in Tribeca and enjoy walking downtown. The Financial District is a completely different place from what it was only three years ago—you can enjoy exhilarating architecture (Calatrava’s Oculus), diverse shopping, and stunning views from Battery Park City’s Esplanade. And if I want to treat myself, I will go to AIRE spa.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
If you want to win my heart, take me to Blue Ribbon Sushi (the original) and ply me with the kaki fry and buri. If you want to do more than that, probably Fanelli Café for a glass of (cheap) champagne and wings. I’m ridiculous in my needs.

WHERE TO SEE ART
I believe in old-school adventures. I like to walk into The Metropolitan, make my donation (don’t be an ass. Make the donation. Every time.), and turn a different direction each time. By the time I’m truly lost, I have passed through at least three centuries and tried to smuggle at least four things out for my home.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
Spunk at Monster on Thursday night. Look it up.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
For breakfast meetings, our go-to spot is Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria on Great Jones. Open early, it’s the perfect spot for espresso and the absolute best bomboloni in New York City. For an easy, light dinner, neighborhood standby Cafe Mogador is perfect, no matter the season, with its indoor and outdoor seating. For special occasions, one of our new favorite spots is Noda.

WHERE TO SEE ART
We’re steadfast fans and supporters of the Cooper Hewitt and the Guggenheim—we can’t wait for the Giacometti show at the Guggenheim in May. This May, we’re all about performance. Frieze’s new Live platform curated by Adrienne Edwards will surely be moving, as well as “FlucT+Production” produced by RoseLee Goldberg of Performa and Salon 94 Design’s Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
After being out and about on our feet all week, there is nothing we love more than a session with Liza at FORM Pilates or a heat detox at HigherDOSE.
