Friday Links to Love

Loved this chandelier at the penthouse suite, Intercontinental Times SquareI really need to say no more to lunches, dinners, coffees, and teas. But this week wasn't one where I was good at saying no. Instead, it was a whirlwind of darting all around the city, from hotel tours (the Intercontinental Times Square is AWESOME) to lunches announcing new hotel openings (Castello di Casole in Tuscany-they make their own olive oil!), to meetings.  In one week, I'll be in England so I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend at home with Rocco, cooking, and enjoying this gorgeous weather we are having in New York.

  • Giada de Laurentiis updated her New York favorites and I love so many of her suggestions, like The Dutch, Morandi, Cafe Cluny, Catch (easily the best restaurant I've tried in the past 6 months), Motorino, and ABC Kitchen
