The latest fashionplate features the Tasch black lace kimono at new hotspot Simon & the Whale at the Freehand Hotel. Reservations are hard to come by so we opted for an early res for drinks and dinner. I started with a Crazy Charlie cocktail which is similar to a margarita. My bestie got a martini. We wanted to have a few cocktails first before ordering food and enjoy our time but the waitress said we had to put the whole order in at once. Le sigh. We got some more drinks and then got the lamb carpaccio which was great and light on a hot day. We then decided to get the fish sandwich which the split for us. See how good it looks. Loved this unexpected choice. The fish wasn’t fried and was great with the sauce and slaw and bread. A great mix of flavors, the fries were also delish. The waitress was sweet and friendly. It wasn’t her fault the restaurant wanted to turn tables quickly. Want to check out the rooftop bar as well. See how styled this fashionplate below and all the meal details as well.
This week’s fashionplate takes place at Seabird, a cute little spot in the heart of the West Village. For this catch up sess with one of the besties I decided to rock our eggplant Sophia cami for Friday night fun. I made a res for 7:30 but the restaurant it didn’t get crowded until about 8:15/8:30. I started with a glass of Sauv and my girl had a glass of Pinot Grigio. We then decided to split a few things. We got the branzino carpaccio which we found light and unique. We then got the grilled octopus which we also enjoyed. Lastly we tried the decadent jalapeno lobster mac & cheese which had a nice quick to it. This is overall a cute neighborhood spot filled mostly with couples on dates. See how I styled our Sophia cami for this fashionplate.
This week’s fashionplate takes us east of the city to Montauk. I love Grey Lady in the city so I’ve been wanting to check out the sister location in Montauk in the old Harbor space by the docks and another fav the Hideaway. It is updated a bit but has most of the old bones of Harbor. We made ressies but if you come early before 8 you probably are fine without them. If you haven’t noticed there has been a heatwave in NY as of late so I just kept things casual with our Hampton striped pocket tank. I started with a coconut margarita which was unique and delish. My girl had the sangria which she also enjoyed. I really was in the mood for clam chowder so I decided to do that and app. The clam chowder was fresh, creamy and had lots of clam in it. I also got the bacon wrapped scallops which were amazing with seasonal fresh veggies. My friend got the tilefish which she enjoyed. Everything is super fresh. Yes, the menu is limited but there is plenty on it that I want to try. Our waiter was uber knowledgeable about the more unique fishes. We learned a lot about lionfish, as she was debating between these two entrees which was an interesting little history listen.

This week’s fashionplate takes us to Seamore’s in Nolita that features healthier renditions with a twist on classic dishes. We ended up grabbing an early dinner here on a frigid day. Since I’ve been eating healthy this month, I snuck a few bites of the bestie’s apps. I started with a refreshing cucumber aqua fresca and we stuck to sparkling water. Always nice to have besties who support Dry-unary! I then ordered the tuna poke to start which was delish, I skipped the chips as I thought they were overkill but my friend stole a few to dip in it. He got the clam chowder to start which is made with coconut milk and was a nice lighter version. He also got the fried avocado which he thought was just ok. I absolutely adored my seared fish tacos and he enjoyed his fried fish tacos. All in all a great place to grab dinner or lunch. Make sure to come early the place started filling up as we were finishing our meal. Now on to the fashion part of the fashionplate. There was a mix of locals, foodies instagraming their meals and tourists. See how I styled our Lana charcoal joggers below.
