This week, Whitewaller New York launches for The Salon Art + Design (November 9-13). To help guide you to the best spots in town—where you can eat, drink, see art, and relax at, we hear from a group of insiders. Up next, we hear from Annastasia v Seebohm, CEO, USA of Quintessentially.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
I’ve had so many super evenings at The Polo Bar. I love the juxtaposition of the refined interior and comfort food menu. I order the burger accompanied by a glass of champagne. Kiki’s is perfect for a casual, low-key dinner. I’m half-Greek, so I practically order the entire menu.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Our offices are in the heart of Chelsea, so I take advantage of that whenever I can. Two new galleries are opening on our block, and I’m excited to check them out. I rate the Jack Shainman Gallery and David Zwirner highly. My perfect Saturday morning is gallery-hopping before heading to the Whitney, followed by a late lunch.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
One of my favorite places is Washington Square Park. I find it’s such a New York thing to be able to watch a concert-level pianist playing live for free under the arch every weekend! And nothing compares to an evening at the opera. I’m excited about the new season ahead and looking forward to seeing Norma.
