Finally took the time to check out Le Botaniste and I’m so happy I did. Le Botaniste is a plant-based organic food & natural wine bar with three locations in Manhattan.
I tried their Chili Sin Carne which was delicious! The ingredients are: Brown rice, 3 beans, quinoa, chili sin carne, erzats sour cream, turmeric onion. textured soy protein, miso, onion, garlic, tomato, cilantro. Yum!

A glimpse into my favorite spa in New York

Here’s a short video with some shots I took at my favorite spa in New York; the spa at Mandarin Oriental.
If you’re looking for an oasis of zen in the middle of all the chaos Manhattan has to offer, this is definitely it!
The treatments are amazing and if you are lucky you get to have most of the facilities to yourself like I did this time around.
I recommend coming 45 minutes before your treatment is scheduled for,
so you can warm up your muscles in the Vitality Pool first!

My favorite NYC restaurant

IMG_8433-2.jpg

What restaurant in NYC is downtown-cosy, elegant, has consistently amazing food and excellent service? My favorite place L’Artusi of course :) Order anything off the menu and prepare to be wowed. I love the tagliatelle bolognese, the roasted mushrooms with egg, the brussel sprouts and last but not least the Crispy Potatoes with Salsa Bianco (definitely get this no matter what if you like sour cream and onion potato chips).

I love to sit at the chefs counter, but they also have beautiful tables. Reserve in advance as this place gets packed for the most popular dinner times 1-2 weeks in advance.

L’Artusi 228 W 10th St, New York, NY 10014
