With Frieze Week underway, architect Annabelle Selldorf reveals her favourite spots across the city
For a memorable meal
47 E 12th St, New York, NY 10003
Incredible Japanese restaurant on East 12th Street between University and Broadway.
For a deli haul
254 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014
Great cheese and charcuterie; the original location on Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village is a real New York experience.
For a special discovery
123 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10016
Specialty food shop with hard to find ingredients from around the world; a visit to this jam-packed shop on Lexington Avenue in “Little India” is a mini-trip around the globe.
For eating al fresco
Madison Ave & E.23rd St, New York, NY 10010
If you want an outdoor lunch pick-up a burger at Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack – the original (!) and enjoy the great people watching in Madison Square Park.
For nourishing the mind
33 Bond St # A, New York, NY 10012
Dashwood is a wonderful small bookstore on Bond Street specializing in books on photography.
For making discoveries
160 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10016
It is always great to check-out Dover Street Market; you are bound to find something you won’t have seen anywhere else - and in an unique setting.
For revisting a classic
945 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10021
Marsden Hartley‘s Maine at Met Breuer is really terrific; illuminating the deep influence his native state had on his work. The recent renovation of the former Whitney building for the Met is worth a trip on its own; the Marcel Breuer building looks so fresh and more beautiful than ever.
For an unmissable art experience
1 E 70th St, New York, NY 10021
The Frick should be on everyone's list when visiting New York, and right now they have a wonderful special exhibition that shouldn’t be missed: 'Turner’s Modern and Ancient Ports: Passages through Time'.
