Hey everyone. I’m having the best time in New York….am seriously in love with this city. It is definitely true that this place never sleeps but I am feeling the effects of this after, so far already, three nights out in a row!! I’m going to be a very broken woman by the time I get back to London. Thought I’d quickly post a recent NYC outfit of the night from when we went out for a few drinks at Schilller’s in the Lower East side.
Schiller’s Liquor Bar is a uber-hip French American bistro by Keith McNally who is also the guy behind Balthazar in Soho, Pastis in the Meatpacking District, and Minetta Tavern in Greenwich Village. The vibe in this place is playful and funky; for example, their wine list has three categories: cheap, decent and good ;) However we opted for some yummy cocktails instead. This is a really fun place for dinner or late-night drinks!

As a bit of self-proclaimed foodie, before going on holiday, I made sure I did my research to find some great ‘go-to’ places for meals. On one of my favourite blogs, Cupcakes and Casmere, Emily recommends the cafe Clementine as a fab place to grab lunch or to “meet a friend”. So when we randomly drove past Clementine’s one afternoon in LA we felt this would be the perfect spot to stop for a bite to eat!
Check out the massive Rolls Royce that pulled up outside whilst we were there! The place however isn’t posh or exclusive. It has a lovely relaxed cafe feel that serves a variety of organic and freshly baked or prepared food.
Inside the cafe they have an widespread selection of fresh food to order from the counter or a menu with even more options. All their muffins and sweets looked amazing and I was very tempted to grab one of their granola-to-go boxes…just because ;)
In the end I decided on a mixed salad plate which meant I could choose three salads from the deli counter..now the only problem was which mouthwatering salad to pick! To drink I got their tropical iced tea which was very refreshing!
My scrumptious mix was the summer chicken salad, the grilled squash medley and the beetroot lentil salad with goats cheese. Nom nom…

This was probably one of my favourite cafes in LA so I would definitely recommend it if you are ever in the area :) You can read Emily’s other great recommendations in her ‘Guide to LA’ here. From her list I also went to Urth Caffe, Toast Bakery and Sur restaurant. Have you ever been to LA; if so what’s your favourite cafe there? Xoxo
