Our Monday Morning Mimosa event is only 1 week away, and we have the Big Apple on the brain! While in NYC we always make a point of going to our favorite eatery - Cookshop. Located on Tenth Avenue at 20th St. this spot is a do not miss. Cookshop serves rustic American fare with a nod to Mediterranean (perfect for summer), and specializes in sustainable ingredients, humanely raised animals and supporting local farmers and artisans. We just can't say enough about how incredibly good, flavorful, fresh and made with care the food is - especially after working a long gift show day. The wine list is thoughtful (many organic) and the drinks are all made with small batch liquors and herbal extractions like hibiscus. Yum.
While we're in NYC for our event, we are determined to visit at least one of their two sister restaurants where we've never been- Five Points and Hundred Acres.
A little side note: for a bit more high-falooting sustainable fare, do NOT miss Blue Hill. Simply amazing food all grown by Blue Hill Farm at the Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, New York (whose shop carries our "Market Fresh" Greenotes). You can be sure there is a blog post to come on that!
