I had the luxury of having an afternoon of proper Tea at one of our guest’s apartments recently. And I do mean, proper. Champagne, petit fours, tea sandwiches, scones, chocolates, white chocolate and raspberry layer cake and Mariage Freres tea, my favorite. Conversation, view of the East River, vintage linens from Pan Am Airlines. Super cool. Thank you, Rod and Keith.
Our super darling Elisabetta Fagiuoli of Sono Montenidoli came back to our fair city for the first time in 3 years and I know that we are richer in spirit for it. I had the opportunity to see her, but more to the point, to taste some of her beauties in back vintages that blew me away. Quality is quality, care is telling. Delicious is, well, just that. Her Foundation that she has created is one that is also a gift to us all. Bringing together people from different backgrounds, of all ages to commune, to nourish the body/mind/spirit. To offer a community of being human in the world together. Thank you, Elisabetta!!
Now, moving towards the middle of June, I am tasked with having to taste many scrumptious wines for the new wine list…sigh, such a hard knock life is mine.
I will let you know what I find that knocks me out.
I hope to have a new phone number to share soon for the space, address: 239 West Broadway. No official name yet, just CHIPANDTINANYC LLC…we will look forward to calling you when the reservation book is officially open and my pencil is sharpened. No OpenTable, no Resy, no surprise there, right?
Love to you all. Eat well, drink even better. Remember to not only take good care of yourselves, but those around you.
