If you find yourself in New York City and you have time for a day trip we recommend traveling a short distance to Brooklyn. Brooklyn Heights and Williamsburg are two neighborhoods that are a peaceful retreat from the bustling city. Be sure to walk along Brooklyn Heights Promenade
for a stunning view of Manhattan and to gaze at the historic mansions that line the promenade. After your stroll, head to Chez Moi
on Atlantic Avenue to refuel with divine French fare.
In Williamsburg we recommend lunching at Parish Hall and then heading to Grand Street for a little shopping. One of our favorite stores was Whisk. A New York based culinary supply shop that you can get lost in for hours. You won’t find Trapp there but you will find everything culinary, beautiful linens, and oddly inventive kitchen tools you’ll discover you can’t live without.
