I was in NYC in April, but didn't have any time to put together my "guide" from when I went. Unfortunately most of the things I did involved eating and drinking (shocker), but I did venture out to Williamsburg to this AWESOME consignment shop. It's featured as #6 - if you're ever in the city I HIGHLY recommend going. Enjoy.
#1 One // The Roger // 131 Madison Ave
I usually take early tries to NYC (they're cheaper and you get a whole extra day) and so I opted for a massive breakfast at the hotel.
#2 // Pings Seafood Restaurant // 22 Mott Street
Dim Sum: It's one of my favorite parts about going to NYC. I try to mix it up while I'm there and came across this place. No joke, my cab there cost more than the entire meal. Top-notch food.
#3 // Authentic Pre Owned // 117 W Broadway
This place was AWESOME. We were walking uptown on Broadway and I spotted this massive LV steamer in the window. We were in a rush and weren't able to stay long, but the pieces in the shop were incredibly cool. Definitely going to be going back on my next visit to pick something up.
#5 // Barbournia // 250 Park Ave S
ame here before going out one night for drinks - the cocktails are awesome. The place is Mediterranean (more Greek from what I could tell) that has small, shareable plates. I hear they have an ultimate champagne cocktails brunch on the weekend. :D
#6 // Beacon's Closet // 74 Guernsey St.
My friend Sarah has been telling about this consignment store she goes to for years. I had a late train leaving the city and so I agreed to make the trek out there. She didn't like. Picked up a Billy Reid Oxford, vintage Lacoste blazer, and a Black Fleece tie for under $50. Definitely a hidden gem well worth the trip.
#7 // The Bedford // 110 Bedford Ave.
Went to this place after Beacon's Closet. Cool Pub-style restaurant with good, cheap food. We split the burger above and I downed the basket of french fries on my own.
#8 // Barney's New York // 101 7th Ave
Went into the Barney's because I wanted to see the new store (it's beautiful) and spotted Nick Wooster in the Thom Browne section no less. Definitely worth a check out - even if it's just to take an Insta of the iconic curved staircase.
#9 // Cafe Fiorello // 1900 Broadway
Cool lunch spot that I've been to now for the second time. The wine list is disgustingly overpriced (paid $60 for a bottle that costs nine bucks online), but the food is good - like this massive pot of mussels and side of fries. Nice spot to hit up if you're on the upper west side.
#10 // J.G. Melon // 1291 3rd Ave
One of my favorite places to go for a quick, cheap bite. If you've never been to J.G. Melon you're out of your mind. For those who have, they accept credit cards now :)
#11 // The Standard Grill // 848 Washington St
Late night libations post going to Brass Monkey (bad move on my part).
