mornings at vinegar hill house



la colombe cold brew





chef's beer


sunny duck egg with fried bread, samba, and confit


poached eggs with spinach and buttered wheat toast


roasted potatoes and sour cream



absolutely perfect in every way, two hour morning brunches at Vinegar Hill House on a windy Saturday could not be any more lovely. soft poached eggs in all their gooey dippable glory, seriously on point wilted spinach, buttery cripsy salty seven-grain toast... and to wash it all down my favorite cold brew coffee and magical chef's beer concoction.

sundays at saturdays surf





equipment riley tee. clover canyon pants. balenciaga cuff. chanel 2.55

spending a leisurely hour at saturdays surf nyc stocking up on the perfect tees for the boy. throw in a shot of espresso from their in-store la colombe coffee bar and you've got yourself a perfect afternoon.

sunday brunch at saxon + parole


sloe gin fizz [plymouth sloe gin, fresh lemon, and soda]
bloody caesar [krogstad aquavit, clamato juice, dill, coriander salt, and a freshly shucked oyster]




the big “BLAT” [bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato, toasted homemade seven grain bread, and smoked paprika mayo]




the S+P dry aged Angus burger [served with pennsylvania havarti, maple bacon, and a fried egg]

living closely to Saxon + Parole definitely has it's perks. massive "BLAT" sandwich I can barely hold together with two hands served on maybe some of my most favorite bread ever being one of them. juicy burger served with a fried egg on some of the most buttery delicious homemade brioche bread another one. delicious and inventive cocktails, are just another highlight that takes this place from good to great.

storm king in september

















saying goodbye to summer, exploring hundreds of acres of sprawling new york terrain on bikes with the boy at the breathtakingly awesome storm king art center. our pilgrimage to see and sit on Momo Taro by Isamu Noguchi and view Richard Serra's work in a setting where it soars is something I'll keep with me forever.

what i love most about this place is how exactly labor intensive it can be to get close to these monumental works. enjoying the beautiful moments that are all the more rewarding when you're willing to work for it.
