Where we recharge our batteries and warm our souls.
Good morning Pretty Birds,
NYFW starts today, and instead of planning our outfits, we’ve been obsessing for the past few days about the cafés and restaurants we’ll be hitting up between and after shows. There’s nothing like a good hamburger, pastrami egg-roll, plate of jerk chicken with a side of rice and peas, or a plate of steamed vietnamese ravioli after a long day of shooting street style and rushing to and from shows. Here’s a list of all our favorite places to eat and drink in New York, and for those of you who’ll be going to the Alexander Wang show, be sure to check-out our favorite Brooklyn restos too…
