A weekend in Manhattan is just long enough to experience the city, do some shopping and get check out some of the latest eateries.

Sleep

I always like to explore new places, this time i wanted to stay central so I chose The NoMad Hotel in the Flat Iron district.

On busy Broadway in a frenetic quarter of the Flatiron District just around the corner from the Ace Hotel, which owner-operators Sydell Group also developed. You’re in easy walking district of Chelsea, The Meatpacking District and Madison Square Park, and close to subways going up town and down.

Dress up

New York is a city you can express yourself ... so where what feels comfortable. 

The oversized teddy bear coat is having a major moment. Last winter, Kim Kardashian made one Max Mara coat her staple and we are happy to see that the style is still going strong (probably because it is so warm and cozy). 

Accesorize your casual look with something colourful and luxurious.  I love my over the shoulder Gucci leather handbag. Just the right size for a days shopping.

Lunch 

Harold Moore makes his NYC return after the abrupt shutter of Commerce, a neighborhood favorite. Harold Meat + Three is ostensibly patterned after the Southern cafeterias, but frankly bears little relation to the concept other than the name. But you will find a selection of gussied up American vernacular classics like prime rib and fried chicken. The menu is priced in tiers of $19, $29, and $39 per meat plus three selections. The cheaper options include things like meatballs and burgers, while the middle tier offers pork ribs and flounder. You want steak or lobster? That will cost $39. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Eater NY's senior critic was generally impressed with a meal there deeming the chicken and dumplings "superb."
