New York Minute: Fall’s Finest

When the Big Apple beckons, here are some choice destinations this fall


Four Seasons

If you appreciate stunning views and remarkable service look no further. The Four Seasons New York has recently undergone a major renovation. Custom furnishings with oak and Italian marble have left no detail spared. The terrace rooms offer a private terrace, a very rare and special feature in the city, ideal for soaking up the panoramic views. Very close to Central Park, the hotel offers the perfect oasis in the midst of the city that never sleeps. The bar and restaurant focus on local produce and work with New York partners to feature special cocktails and dishes to locals and visitors alike.


The NoMad

The Momofuku group does it again, this time in Chelsea where Chef Daniel Humm, of Eleven Madison Park, oversees the kitchen with inspiration from Switzerland, California, and New York. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the restaurant is made up of several rooms with an atrium allowing for lovely natural light on sunny days. The diner can quickly see the effort that goes into each dish. Granola at breakfast is obviously homemade and might be the best you’ll ever have. The lunch menu is constantly evolving but even the Bibb lettuce salad with buttermilk, radish, and fine herbs is elevated to new tastes with painstakingly fresh ingredients that pop with each bite. Dinner calls for the famous roast chicken for two: foie gras and black truffle are layered just beneath the skin for a rich dish bursting with flavor. Milk Chocolate dessert has been on the menu for eons and for good reason. Ganache with chocolate fondant and malt ice cream are too good to resist.



Raincoats have never been cooler. This Swedish brand believes melancholy inspires creativity and we should start with embracing rain. This is much easier to do sporting their latest looks, which can be divided based on heaviness of rain, material, and style. Hand-sewn, completely waterproof (that is the point, after all), and now at a boutique in Soho.
