Italy – all the goodness😋

I told everyone I would come back from Italy 10 lbs heavier…and I may have reached my goal 😉
Tons of pizza, focaccia bread, caprese, pasta, wine, fish, gelato and desserts…Oh and how can I forget…countless cappuccinos! I must’ve averaged 3 per day. But when in Rome!  Read below for our favorite stops in each city.

Rome:
Papa Rex – Known for their fish. Close proximity to the Vatican. Definitely a great spot after the Vatican (minus the tourists). Read more

Gelato class

Are you looking for a fun (and yummy!) activity in the city this summer?  My girlfriend Stacey so thoughtfully gifted me a gelato making class at Mia for my birthday.  I’ve been having some Italy withdraws so it was the perfect time to now book a class and take part! Read more

Bergdorf’s Afternoon Tea

When you don’t live close to your mom, you appreciate her in a whole new way.  Liam was so excited to have his grandmother in town and, to be honest, so was I!  We always fit in a girl’s shopping day when she comes to town and this visit was no exception.  To start, we donned our best hats and headed out to high tea at Bergdorf’s.

St Patrick’s Day

“May your troubles be less and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door.”  St. Patrick’s Day is just one of the most fun holidays to celebrate!  I love the inclusiveness of everyone being Irish for a day: the green everything, the shamrocks, the parades, the music, and of course themed food and drinks (corned beef and green beer anyone?).  It’s a holiday everyone young and old can get into and enjoy.  You see so much spirit around town it’s like being back at your high school spirit week (How’s that for a throwback?!).

Tessa

I have been to Tessa (Upper West Side) twice now and have loved it both times.

I have been dreaming about the Linguini since my first visit. Linguini would typically not be my first pick on a menu but my friend Stacey asked if I wanted to share (mainly so we could order more things)…and omg…? Read more

Arthur Ave

After a full day at the Bronx Zoo, we wanted to finish our adventure with a great dinner. Close to the zoo is Arthur Avenue, the Bronx Little Italy. This iconic street is lined by Italian restaurants, bakeries, and butchers. We ended up at the famous Dominick’s, 5 star eatery mid-avenue. Dominick’s is no regular restaurant, on Arthur Ave since 1962. Read more

Dylan’s Candy Bar

After Li had his first modeling campaign shoot in Long Island City, we wanted to celebrate with brunch and yummies after. Our first instinct was Serendipity 3 on E. 60th St. However, the line was huge as anticipated. We walked down the block to Dylan’s Candy Bar. This is no regular candy store; there is a restaurant in the establishment as well. Read more
