all devotees of U.K.-based are in for some good news! because this is their very first venture outside of the U.K. and i for one, couldn’t be more thrilled that the company has hopped across the pond and created a little piece of England in the heart of Manhattan. have opened an inspiring new kitchen showroom in a renovated mid-19th-century building on lovely Bond Street in NoHo, showcasing four beautifully appointed kitchen displays in the main showroom, as well as a whole basement and yard full of cool vintage furniture and antiques.

this is just one of the kitchens showcased, and my personal favorite because it brings a bit of that colorful British kitsch along with it. an authentic English cupboard is a rare find, and Every is still handmade in Leicestershire, England and now, we in the U.S. are able to have them in our kitchens, too. next time i’m in new york i’ll definitely be making a visit. welcome to the U.S. ! we’re so glad you’re here!

we’re sticking around the neighborhood on this week’s wear this there and headed to DTLA and checking out the new . if you’ve ever been to cuba, then you’ll know how nice it is to have access to a CAFÉ CON LECHE in our own backyard. the coffee drink is a standard around havana — think a Sweet double shot of espresso with steamed whole milk — yum! but should you also be a bit hungry, there’s cuban pastries, a delicious PORK AND PLANTAIN HASH as well as the beloved cubano pork sandwich. so, even though i recommend a trip to cuba for everyone, there’s now to whet your appetite. we’re going casual, but chic in a , comfy faded and some sleek . toss a over your shoulder and a and you’re ready to head downtown. while you sip your coffee, think about reading by Junot Diaz. it shares the story of Oscar, a family’s dreaded curse and the endless human capacity to persevere — and risk it all in the name of love.
