Lunch with clients. I love the casual atmosphere at Meddlesome Moth. It’s busy enough that I can have a private business conversation without being overheard at the next table. I always order the egg-white frittata.
After-shopping drinks. I love FT33 and always order a glass of champagne.
Latest antiques acquisition. A collection of pottery for a client from Sputnik Modern.
Exotic shopping destination. Art of Old India for Indian inlay mirrors and columns.
Hidden gem. Custom-painted paper shades fabricated by Yang’s Double Happiness, and Richard Bettinger of Bettinger Studios, who just created a beautiful 60-by-40 stretched-canvas photography piece for a client project.
Secret source. Peter at Goodchilds Restorations is a great furniture refinisher and has made custom pieces for us in the past. Love his British accent.
Go-to gallery. Craighead Green. I bought almost an entire collection for a client two years ago, and they did an amazing job of assisting me in curating several other art collections for clients.
