CITY GUIDE ANAÏS MILLETTE

They only ones that I can eat here are from Black Seed bagel on Elizabeth street.  One of the owners is from Montreal so that’s why (Montreal is known for its bagels) Montreal bagels win over NYC bagels!

CITY GUIDE ANAÏS MILLETTE

As part Mexican, I do need my fix from time to time.  La Esquina is always great!  In summer, I go to the one in Williamsburg as they have a nice outdoor section.  You need to have the hot Chocolate.  Mexican hot chocolate is the best!

CITY GUIDE ANAÏS MILLETTE

They serve Verve coffee, seriously the best. I brought friends and family there and they all said it was amazing. Besides that place, I have and Italian stovetop coffee maker at home as I’m too picky for coffee. I drink mine black and it has to be perfect.

CITY GUIDE ANAÏS MILLETTE

Because they have everything and its next to my house. Best for the day after partying, hence the name Remedy, haha!

Great for classic French manicure, lots of glitter or crazy nail art. Whatever you want… they can do it!

Lucette Voogsgeerd

I love this local West Village place, they serve great food and cocktails are the best. A physic and the cool bartenders make the evening even more interesting!

510 Hudson St (West Village)

Lucette Voogsgeerd

A fun and vibrant Upper East brasserie with a French cuisine. They serve delicious dishes (I love the steak) and have great drinks, no NYC Sunday brunch without cocktails!

CITY GUIDE ELISE BOERS

Cafe Standard in the East Village. It has an intimate garden with old 60s style patio furniture – perfect for drinks on a Sunday afternoon. I really like the atmosphere here. Definitely upscale but laid-back at the same time, somehow.

25 Cooper Sq, East Village

CITY GUIDE ELISE BOERS

This vegetarian cafe serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and almost everything is vegan. Their salads are to die for. Love to hang out on their lovely sidewalk terrace.

19 Kenmare St, Nolita

CITY GUIDE ELISE BOERS

A totally industrial, gorgeous and artistic space with plenty of cosy couches where you can totally relax. The ultimate place to soothe you after dealing with traffic and people all day. After you have been brought back to life, you can start the party in the Club Room on the same floor and dance the night away among the young elite of NYC.

310 West Broadway, Soho

CITY GUIDE ELISE BOERS

You can describe your symptoms to the staff – tired, poor skin, stomach ache, no energy, cold – and they make a special smoothie to cure you. How amazing is that?

CITY GUIDE ELISE BOERS

The High Line is a long park built on an elevated section of a disused railroad and perfect for long walks on a summer night.

CITY GUIDE ELISE BOERS

The top of this hotel has one of the best views in the city, in my opinion. This is what I would consider to be Williamsburg’s premier spot for cocktails. The view is not the only draw: The bartenders could pass for Calvin Klein models. The vibe compliments the neighborhood – young, hipster. Lots and lots of beautiful people AND selfies everywhere.

80 whyte Avenue, Brooklyn

CITY GUIDE ELISE BOERS

Julien Farel, in Upper East Side, has an amazing team of experts for any type of hair. It’s one of the most prestigious hair salons in NYC.

540 Park Avenue, Upper East Side

CITY GUIDE ELISE BOERS

Best working spot ever. During the day it is super crowded with hardworking people typing on their laptops like maniacs. After 7pm there is a no-laptop policy and it turns into a cute wine place with live music. Love it!

175 Orchard Street, Lower East Side
