Given the wrong thoughts set, I might be depressing in Paris or paradise. We all could. However given that I’m, on the whole nowadays, content & ever striving in the direction of a reasonable evaluation of the fear & sense of urgency that plague me regardless of circumstance, I find myself usually pleased right here in our fourth flooring walk up come heat wave or snow, both of which we have been here for.

Candelaria – Candelaria is many issues, but they also happen to have a killer Sunday brunch. Seize some huevos rancheros and a slushy margarita for a departure from the traditional croissant & café.

Septime – considered one of our all time favorite meals (on the earth). A reservation is a must & must be made far upfront. When you have a local buddy prepared to cease by in person and could be versatile with dates, that’s best. We often go for lunch as it’s cheaper, superior, and a bit simpler to get in. Wine pairing is a should if you’re a wine lover. Open Monday 7:30 Pm – 10 PM, Tuesday-Friday 12:15 PM – 2 PM & 7:30 PM – 10 PM, and closed Saturday and Sunday!
