Cafe Gitane’s second locaton is tucked away inside the Jane Hotel. I love coming here on Sunday’s because it’s bright, laid back and chill. The retro feel and diverse menu (couscous, pastries, eggs, sandwiches, pasta, meatballs) makes it a brunch staple.
Avocado Toast- Simply amazing.
Eggs with Salmon- Delicious.
Eggs with Tomato- Light and savory.
Brioche Ice Cream Sandwich- The perfect sweet treat!

It’s been a while since I’ve had such an amazing dining experience. The food was fantastic! Chef Daniel Humm (formerly of Eleven Madison Park) exhibits an awesome display of inventive and well executed dishes. The service and decor were equally impressive.
We had the pleasure of dining in the Parlour which is off to the side of the atrium and lively bar area. It was dark and sexy with red textured fabrics, and perfectly lit.

La Promenade des Anglais is a great addition to Chelsea. The Mediterranean-French bistro-style resto delivers on all levels- a creative menu, wonderful service, and fashionable decor. Dinner here is definitely reminiscent of an evening on the French Riviera. There’s a heavy presence of elegance and glossy style.
A cocktail at the bar is a must- even if it’s just to admire the design. The journey will continue from there once you’re seated and begin to feast on dishes with interesting blends and preparations.
The subterranean lounge in the Carlton Hotel, Salon Millesime has a cool vibe. The vintage-glam spot serves small plates (you can also order from the upstairs restaurant that has a tasty seafood-inspired menu) and cocktails while grooving to a DJ or live music. It’s the perfect destination for date night and libations with friends.
I attended a birthday celebration for my girl Michelle’s sister, and we did it up in true Sip, Chat, Chow fashion.
St Tropez is filled with restaurants where you want to be seen but usually those spots don’t have the best food. So, on this trip, our strategy was to seek out the real culinary gems for dinner and visit the trendy hot spots for lunch, cocktails or a light snack.
Tucked away in the heart of the old quarter of St Tropez, Caprice Des Deux is a quaint bistro that transports you to a romantic place. It’s located on a side street close to the port. The well executed menu delivers French, Mediterranean and Modern cuisine in an old village house with three rooms- all with their own character. One set with candles, the other with mirrors and the third with wood accents.
