WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
I’m definitely a creature of habit and love going to restaurants and bars where I’m friends with the staff and owners. Indochine, Acme, Lucien, Cafe Mogador, and Hôttel Americano are where you will find me most of the time. New favorites added to the rotation are The Grill, Le Coucou, and Kappo Masa.

WHERE TO SEE ART
The New Museum continues to push the boundaries, and the 2018 Triennial, “Songs for Sabotage” should not be missed. SculptureCenter’s current “74 million million million tons,” curated by Ruba Katrib and Lawrence Abu Hamdan, is a must-see. I’m most excited about “Ahmed Mater: Mecca Journeys” at the Brooklyn Museum, a complex and uncompromising portrait of extreme urban development in this holy city.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
I love having time on weekends to explore and be inspired. Day trips to Dia:Beacon or Philip Johnson’s Glass House are always a treat. Recently, I accompanied my friend Chadwick Bell to hear Philip Glass at Carnegie Hall, which was divine. And if you know me, then you know my love of soulful electronic music by Nicolas Jaar, DJ Harvey, and DJ Behrouz!

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Walking into Omar’s, I always know I’m going to have a fantastic night. No matter who you come with, by the end of the evening your group has surely doubled—if not tripled—in size, and chances are you’re swapping jaw-dropping stories with a bevy of interesting characters. The Uptown location just opened, making it hard to make a definitive choice.

WHERE TO SEE ART
When I have a moment to myself, I relish going to The Met and taking in the Northern European Renaissance works. Every piece in the Oceanic art wing is full of such endless inspiration and, as many of Assouline’s titles are grounded in historic movements, I’m able to incorporate these little moments of solace in my everyday work.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
On any given Monday evening, you can most likely find me at Red Rooster in Harlem. Sit at the bar in the midst of all the action to soak in the live music and friendly atmosphere.
