The Big Apple Wrap Up

by Kate on August 3, 2010

I  thought I would list on one post my ‘must-do’s’ when in the City that NEVER sleeps. Thank you to everyone who sent me tips on their favourite places.

Shopping
Anthropologie – exquisite clothes and fantastic homewares
ABC Carpet & Home – Gorgeous homewares
Fishs Eddy – The BEST range of flatware
Uniqlo – Great jeans and cashmere at very, very reasonable prices
Alexis Bittar – Exquisite jewellery and just a few doors down from Purl
Purl Soho – Great for yarn
MoMA Design Store – Great place for unique gifts
Viaa Spiga – Shoe store just around the corner from Purl
Mood Fabrics - Fashion fabrics galore
M&J Trimmings – If you need any sort of trim, M&J is your store
Saks Fith Ave – How the other half shop

Eating
Dean & Deluca – Great for lunch
Hampton Chutney - Great for lunch and just around the corner from Dean & Deluca
Tamarind – Yummy India
Del Friscos – Yummy steak and the sides were delicious but HUGE
La Esquina – Great spot for dinner and don’t leave without trying a magarita
The Spotted Pig – Gastropub inthe West Village
Kenmare – Good food, great drinks and you can play spot the celebrity
My advice would be to pre-book dinner spots at Open Table

Visit
MoMA
See Central Park
Top of the Rock has fantastic views of the City
Walk, walk and walk…it really is the best way to experience New York. 
Times Square – jam packed at ANY time of the day or night
