New York's hidden gem - Bohemian Restaurant

One of the highlights of our recent NY trip was going for dinner to the "members only" restaurant Bohemian in NOHO. I was a little doubtful about the members only idea, and I thought it would be too pretentious but instead we discovered a warm and cozy little place with the most delicious food. It helps if you have friends in high places, but if you go on the restaurant's website it says to email them directly and maybe they can work something out, so I hope you get to try it next time you are in NY, is definitely an experience for the senses!

So this is one of my favorite times of the year, when we get to do our buying trips. Marcelo & I just came back from New York, we were attending the gift show (can't wait to show you all the new products we bought for Spring, stay tuned!) and one of the highlights was staying at The Ace Hotel which was designed by the same firm that designed The Standard, Roman & Williams. We have read a lot about it so we were so excited to be able to stay there, and if I could describe the experience in a few words it would be " chic comfort on a budget" visually it was eye candy, but most importantly it was comfortable and luxurious where a hotel needs to be: bed & bathroom and all for a great price! oh and to complete the experience we were delighted to discover Stumptown coffee from Seattle, I hope you enjoy the pics!
