Link Love Vol. #38

Hola from NYC! It definitely feels like every time I write one of these posts, I’m not in Chicago. Either this means I need to stop traveling so much, or it means that I need to write more Link Love posts.

I always have such a blast in New York, and this weekend was no different. I made a little guide to everything we did this time around, and while it’s nowhere close to as lengthy as a true NYC guide would be, I hope it’s at least a little helpful!

I ate some really freaking good food in NYC this weekend, so thought I’d share:

Tiny’s & The Bar Upstairs in TriBeCa
Cute, cozy, and delicious food. The meal set us back a little more than we had planned (about $60 a person after food and drinks), so know that up front. But hey, it’s New York.

By Chloe
Believe the hype. This vegan spot is truly delicious for plant and meat eaters alike. My favorite things were the sweet potato fries (duh) and the pesto meatball sandwich.

Lafayette
This French restaurant in TriBeCa was the perfect place for brunch! Idan and I split an order of lemon berry pancakes and OMGGG it was so delicious. Also, it was surprisingly easy to get a reservation for 8 people on a Sunday at 11am, so see if you can also get a res!

Banc Cafe
This new American spot in Murray Hill was so yummy! I got the angel hair pasta with vodka sauce… holy comfort food.

Penelope
Such a cute little place in Murray Hill! Penelope’s was so delicious and I can’t believe I’ve never been there before. Be prepared for a long wait, or use NoWait to hold your place in line to make it a leeeetle bit shorter.


Other fun things we did this weekend:
Visited DUMBO and tried Brooklyn Roasting Company
Visited the Glossier showroom in SoHo
Saw The Book of Mormon… SO FUNNY AND AMAZING.

Now, onto this week’s links!

This woman has a Zero Waste home… aka she and her family produce almost no waste whatsoever. Obviously this is incredibly hard to achieve, but she does offer some good tips for wasting less!

Domino listed the best Book Bars around the country… although I do think they should have included First Draft Book Bar in Arizona (featured in my Phoenix guide!)

Taryn gathered her friend’s favorite podcasts and put them all together in a nice little list for us. My favorite right now? Missing Richard Simmons, conveniently first on this list.

This guide to the best foods to meal prep is amazing, especially because it highlights foods that will actually last you all week!

This bedside table DIY is seriously incredible… wish I had room for it now, but definitely in my next place.

Going to need this for my next apartment — Krys goes over how to use fabric as wallpaper. Really.

    I cannot wait to try ByChloe (it opened up after I moved away from NYC, boo hoo!). Love a good IKEA hack, too. Have a nice weekend!

    xo,
