New York

My trip to New York went by too quickly. I decided to leave my DSLR at home and just focus on vacation and reuniting with friends. I enjoyed not being so connected this weekend, so that may explain the lack of social media this weekend! I got in Friday afternoon and met up with some friends for coffee and then for dinner. Then I just wandered around a bit and took a stroll along the water. I stayed at the Conrad Hotel in Battery Park and I would highly recommend it. It was right across from the One World Trade Center and my hotel room had a direct view of the waterfront. If you checked out my snapchat, you would know the crazy room I had as well! Everything about that hotel was perfection: the service was impeccable, the staff was kind and helpful, and all around it was top notch.IMG_3554
On Saturday I went to a wedding outside of the city. Such a gorgeous couple!

The best vegetable quiche and the restaurant was right outside the hotel!

My friend and I at the wedding reception at Chelsea Piers. The piers had some of the most gorgeous views, especially at sunset!

My friend and I caught in the moment!

View from across the street! This was steps from my hotel! The weather was absolutely gorgeous and I could not have asked for a better day.

IMG_3475Another sampling from Fig & Olive. Three different crostinis and they were all absolutely amazing!

IMG_3564Some of the BEST flan I have ever had from Socarrat!

Overall, it was the perfect weekend to go. The wedding and all the festivities were absolutely perfect and I had a blast. Restaurant week was happening, so I was able to have some incredible food this past weekend. The weather was perfection (albeit a bit hot) and there was not a day that wasn’t full of sunshine and gorgeous skies. If you need any recommendations or have any other questions, feel free to ask! Hope you had a gorgeous weekend!
