Italian as Art

I am of the firm conviction that there is nothing better than Italian in New York City. From homestyle to “alto Italiano” (high-class Italian) there is much to choose from in our fair metropolis.  And now with the opening of East 12th Osteria there is an option that is as delicious as eating in the land of La Docle Vita. With smart, sensuous and smallish options – chef Roberto Deiaco has created a menu that is a delight to both the eyes and the palate.

Oh Snow Cozy

It snuck up on us again this year, and somehow we were all surprised. Winter…the holidays. It’s time to embrace it, but you don’t have to turn your space into a winter wonderland. A few new accessories will ease us into the seasonal change. Shop online or in these local stores for cozy, (somewhat) Christmas-y, but ever-stylish pieces. The best part? You can enjoy each one of these items from the comfort of your sofa!

Some destinations are so special and magical they stay with you long after you’ve returned home. Peru is one of those places. This gem of a country has diverse, stunning topography, fascinating cultures and is a foodie paradise, voted best culinary destination at the 2012 World Travel Awards. A growing number of tourists are also flocking here for the au courant designer shops. Vogue featured a collection of Peruvian motifs on its cover, by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino.
