A New York State of Mind
The Big Apple is back! Spent the weekend at Soho House in the revitalised, re-energised Meat Packing District. Outdoor restaurants packed to overflowing on Friday night and all day Saturday, Keith McNally’s Pastis still delivering, Cipriani Downtown back as the home of the super-model and veterans like us – we ate there every weekend when we lived in Tribeca and Soho – the Vitello Tonnato, the Fegato, the Bellinis and the old waiters are still there – in full flow.
An early morning hour’s walk on The High Line, a mandatory trip to our favourite Zadig & Voltaire – and a classic concert at The Garden – The Piano Man – after oysters/octopus in the Chelsea Market.
“I don’t have any reasons
I’ve left them all behind
I’m in a New York state of mind.”
