As a self-proclaimed bon vivant , I take great pride in my taste. Here are some of my favorites


  • Del Posto– Decadent Italian dishes with an extraordinary wine list
  • Dirt Candy– Inventive vegetarian tasting menus, a summertime favorite
  • Per Se– Luxe gastronomic cuisine, better described as a journey rather than a meal
  • Kajitsu– shojin ryori inspired omakase that focuses on seasonal produce
  • Blue Hill– patient farm-to-table food made with locally sourced produce and livestock
  • Jungsik– Artful, contemporary Korean cuisine with a dessert tasting menu
  • Le Bernardin– Eric Ripert’s three Michelin star seafood restaurant is a personal necessity when I’m missing the tastes of Marseille.
  • Daniel– My favorite of Chef Boulud’s that takes opulence to the next level with French dishes exemplary of his Lyonnaise background
  • Eleven Madison Park– Simultaneously upscale and playful, Chef Daniel Humm delivers tasting menus perfect for an evening of indulgence

  • An unforgettable stay at Le Petit Nice in Marseille, complete with a meal by Gerald Passedat and a drive to the Calanques
  • Experience life on Mars in an eco-habitat where high tech luxury and sustainability meet at TERA in the Hudson Valley.
