Quirky, little place in SoHo. Mix between rustic and farm to table food with an interesting flare. Both meals we ordered to very satisfying for lunch. Fun drink and coffee options as well.

Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of
Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping
destinations in the world. Housing everything from the

shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with
big-name stores and people during the day, while
Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to
