What can you say about the Balthazar- the place oozes atmosphere and there is nowhere quite like it on a Saturday night. I arrived late (10:30) and got a place at the bar (without a reservation). It was full, bustling and there is plenty to...More

Awesome French Bistro just dripping with French character. The Duck Confe is so crispy and so good. The service makes you feel like you are a local. The neighborhood is also fantastic to walk around, so show up an hour early.

SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of
Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping

most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you
won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated
shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with
big-name stores and people during the day, while
Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to
