Empire Diner

If you are wandering around Chelsea, consider stopping into this gastro diner where you can indulge in elevated comfort food (think pretzel-coated friend chicken), including insanely so-good-who-cares-if-it-is-bad-for-you desserts such as the naughty coconut layer cake.

Hà Nội House

119 St. Mark’s Place
New York, NY 10009

One of the latest haunts to cause a buzz in the East Village, this Vietnamese hotspot was opened by Stephen Starr alumni and comes with all the “cool” you’d expect, and many lip-smacking, out-of-the-box Vietnamese dishes. There is also a solid selection of wine and beer, as well as addicting Vietnamese coffee and exotic desserts.

Margaux (The Studio)

The Studio
37 W 20th St, Suite 1206
New York, NY 10011

There is something about visiting NYC that compels even the most frugal of us to go shopping. And if you are a shoe fanatic, it’s probably one of the most tempting cities to be. Just in time for the next transition of seasons, we discovered the ballet flats at Margaux, made of Manolo-quality Italian suede and available as ready-to-wear or custom options, both crafted ­specifically for the optimum comfort and style needs of your hardworking feet.

As I was clashed by the movements, the electrifying ambiance, the energy and vibrancy of New York, I swore that I’ve yet to come back again, discovering that I can’t live long enough to experience it all.
