COGNAC, FRANCE

We landed in Cognac and headed straight to Hennessy’s Chateau Bagnolet. It was magnificent.

After settling in, our next stop was the vineyard and Hennessy distillery.

I was able to make my own blend!

We had all meals at Bagnolet, and I must say- it was a fabulous experience. We always started with an aperitif prepared by Hennessy’s own skilled mixologist, Jordan.

I checked out Ken & Cook during private previews last week with a crew of good friends. It’s unanimous- this is a spot for the scene and cuisine!

The American Brasserie has a great vibe…the exposed brick, sleek bar display, airy feel, and downstairs lounge makes for Nolita’s latest HOT SPOT!

Richard Diamonte, a Jean-Georges alum (former executive sous-chef) delivers a wide-range of American classics with a unique touch. We had a tasting of the entire menu and I was impressed.

Out with the old (Acme) and in with the new (Acme)! Danish chef, Mads Refslund, who comes to us by way of Copenhagen (Noma- #1 restaurant in the world), constructed an amazing menu of unique and palate pleasing dishes dubbed new Nordic cuisine.

The candlelit, sexy Noho resto filled with good vibes and beauties delivers on all fronts. I loved the rare ingredients and unexpected pairings.
