A new ongoing exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art examines “the modern monument,” including works by Miró, Maillol, and Picasso. Beautiful and thought-provoking.

Can never get enough vintage New York.
Today marks the start of one of New York’s most exciting annual events - the Tribeca Film Festival. The lineup is incredible!
In GQ Magazine, Alan Richman reviewed Asiate, calling it “New York’s Best-Kept Hotel Restaurant Secret” — guess the secret’s out!
We love this glimpse into his conversation with Asiate chef de cuisine Angie Berry:
When I asked her about the multitude of impressionistic touches added to her dishes, not so many as to make her food unrecognizable, she told me that ideas pop into her head. Sometimes they come when she rides the train in from Queens, where she lives, and sometimes when she’s sleeping, “I dream about food, wake up, think, ‘what a great idea,’” she said.
Believe us — you can taste her dedication in every bite.
Classic New York (Black & White cookie) meets new New York (artisan ice cream brand). Obviously, we’re in love.
Flavor of the Month: Flavor #108. Black & White Pint
one half chocolate shortbread ice cream, one half vanilla fondant ice cream with chunks of black and white cookies
Is there anything more New York than New York? And is there a cookie more New York than the Black and White cookie? A spongey shortbread cookie, dressed in perfect halves — chocolate fudge and vanilla fondant. Inspired by this iconic NYC treat, we crafted the Black and White Pint. Half chocolate shortbread, half vanilla fondant, and chunks of Black and Whites from 1902-established family-run bakery, Glaser’s, in Yorkville (that’s the Upper East!). What side will you eat first?
