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 Ana Maria Celis, Christie’s Vice President, specialist, Post-War and Contemporary Art.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
I think Shuko is the best sushi restaurant in New York right now. The food is incredible and it just has an amazing vibe. It doesn’t get more iconic New York than the former Four Seasons space, The Pool. And The Blond is a cool new spot for a late-night drink downtown.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Whether it’s viewing a traveling exhibition or catching a glimpse of their permanent collection, the new Whitney Museum is one of my favorites. The Neue Galerie is one of the most special places in the city. Also, few people know that Christie’s is free and open to the public, making it a great place to see some of the world’s most exciting works of art.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
AIRE Ancient Baths is an incredible space and bathhouse in Tribeca. The spa at the Greenwich Hotel is my favorite for a day of pampering.
