with back-to-back appointments all over and across town (the "towns" in this case being new york and paris) weeks at market are as exhilarating as they are hectic.
we always find time to eat well (and hydrate) throughout the chaos. below, find some of our recent discoveries and old favorites.
132 w hudson st
it's hard not to love everything about miss lily's — delicious, flavorful food and refreshing drinks in an upbeat setting. jerk corn is a must try.
611 hudson st
an intimate west village restaurant serving up modern takes on Israeli cuisine. start by nibbling on their delectable fried olives and get lost in the deliciousness from there.
kimpton ink48 hotel, 653 11th ave
for a drink with a stunning view of the city, check out the rooftop bar at the kimpton ink48 hotel.
9 rue de beauce
this unassuming spot in the marais is actually paris's oldest covered market and dates to 1615. in its current iteration, it's part market / part food stalls. don't miss the japanese bento boxes.
1 rue commines
le mary celeste has become a scarpa favorite for a drink or food or both. actually, even if you're only there for a drink, you still have to order their oeuf de diable (deviled eggs, as it were). forget everything you thought a deviled egg should be. they are simply beyond.
60 rue charlot
though most would consider this bar more of a late night spot, the great thing about going to a nightclub early is that you have the place to yourself and you can really enjoy what you're guaranteed — a fabulous cocktail and a cute waiter. their menu is also particularly inventive: a book with pull-out tabs instructs you to choose which image matches your mood. you then reveal the corresponding cocktail. quelle romantique.
11 rue richard lenoir
if you've read this far, you've probably realized we're partial to a good steak. this cozy argentinian restaurant with a relaxed, neighborhood vibe has plenty to offer in the beef department, as well as more franco-inspired dishes, such as an exceptional foie gras.
