La Petite Peach_things to do in NYC 24

Just in case you missed our Bonpoint visit make sure you check it out! I was thinking about how every time I go to NYC, I visit all the same places (such a creature of habit). When Wesleigh and I last went, we really branched out and tried some new things…

We went shopping, tried new foods, hit up food trucks, and explored new neighborhoods. I have to say, though, don’t leave the city without doing these 11 things below!

Of course, we went to all our favorite places we always go to as well. I mean there is no way I am leaving NYC without a fabulous brunch or strolling the aisles at Eataly for goodies to bring home. Here are my new, and old, go-to spots.

By the way have you subscribed to the newsletter yet?! There are AMAZING GIVEAWAYS coming up in the next 4 weeks and you must be a email subscriber to enter. Sign up on the HOMEPAGE under the nav. bar item “SUBSCRIBE”!

Food Truck: By far the best thing that ever happened to me is Waffles and Dinges. It’s just like the mini waffles I used to get on the side of the road in Florence.

Brunch: Everyone in NYC does brunch, and I know New Yorkers are rolling their eyes, but Balthazar is amazing and I won’t leave the city without at least walking by!

Coffee on the go: Dean and Deluca is one of those places where you stop for a quick coffee/shopping break and you leave with flowers, fresh fruit, a smoothie, four types of cheeses you have never heard of, honey from France, and two new types of olive oil. OK, maybe that’s just me?

Kids Shopping: This is its own blog post, seriously, but Bonpoint is so gorgeous and it’s next to Ladurée so it’s a double whammy! Sweet William and Giggle are also favorites.

A Salad: Jack’s Wife Freda is a super cute café in Soho with killer salads!

Music: I have been following Carte Blanche for years and seeing them play live in the city is something you just have to see for yourself.

Bath and Body: Sabon in NYC is a lovely place to get bath and body products. I have been using the scrub for over five years (vanilla-coconut), and the handmade soaps are delightful. TIPwhen they ask if you want to wash your hands, DO IT! I didn’t do it the first time I walked in, I thought it was maybe weird? The second time around I did and got to see how to use the products and left with baby bottom, soft hands.

People Watching: There are a ton of outdoor cafés in NYC perfect for people watching, but I love grabbing a cappuccino in the lounge of the Mercer Hotel. So many beautiful people in one spot. It’s a great place to grab a drink and dinner too.

Gourmet Superstore: Eataly in the Flatiron District of NYC is a feast for the eyes and stomach. Imagine a HUGE Italian outdoor farmers market, but indoors! There are restaurants (including a pizza stop), gourmet grocery, gelato, fresh cheese, meats, pastas and more. You must, I repeat, must go here if you are in the city.

Guacamole: Dos Caminos, just go!

A Quick Bite: I love popping into Olive’s. Strong, hot coffee and great salads, amazing little sandwiches and just a great place to pop into get a bite.

Thanks so much to Brookelyn Photography  for shooting this for us! xo!
