Body By Simone Holiday Brunch Desserts!


We celebrated the holidays with the entire Body By Simone NYC team this past weekend and had some delicious dessert at Hotel Americano in Chelsea.  It’s always hard to find a great brunch spot in NYC that isn’t over crowded with a wait time of over an hour.  Hotel Americano was delicious, chic, and low key.  With the prix fixe, we had our choice of Sticky Toffee Cake or Crème brûlée for dessert.  We’re giving a special shout out to their


When in Red Hook, Brooklyn…


We find ourselves in Red Hook, Brooklyn for two reasons:  IKEA or the Nadia Tarr sample sale (my favorite designer).  Our recent visit was the latter.  There is also amazing key lime pie sold only in Red Hook:  Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pie.  It’s world famous and one of Al Roker’s picks.  Lucky me, they serve it at another favorite spot, The Red Hook Lobster Pound.  After a delicious lunch of lobster rolls and sweet potato fries, it was time for a light & refreshing sweet.  The perfect mini size, it’s tangy and delicious.   If you go to the actual


Ellary’s Greens


We can’t stop thinking about the enchanting evening we spent at Ellary’s Greens this week.  Located down in the West Village, this Vegan and Gluten-Free optional restaurant exudes charm in every way.  We were there to taste their seasonal pies that are available on their dessert menu but also available to order for all your holiday events and dinners!  Our tasting started with a spoonful of chocolate mousse with coconut whipped cream.  The mousse, mostly based with the super antioxidant powers of raw cacao has a secret ingredient as


Gourmet Pumpkin Spice Themed Box!







Look no further for the perfect gift to bring to a host or to send to a loved one this holiday season.  Delivered right to your door is a box filled with fall delights.  The Market Box Gifts creates their boxes for everyone to enjoy.  Included in our pumpkin spice gourmet box was: Pumpkin bread, pumpkin taffy, pumpkin iced cookies, pumpkin spiced almonds, a seasonal coffee with a wonderful ceramic mug, and a pumpkin cut out cookie!  Everything came


Pumpkin Dough!


Across the street from my show, Something Rotten! at the St. James Theatre, is City Kitchen in the Row Hotel. It’s an upscale food court, which includes Dough Doughnuts.  They have PUMPKIN DONUTS right now and they’re SO GOOD.  Dough is famous for their yeast donuts with different icing flavors.  The donuts are always so fresh and soft.  The pumpkin glaze was just enough sweetness and the seeds added a nice crunch to the texture.  It’s always nice to have the option of a gourmet pick-me-up between shows on a two-show day. Coffee & donuts in Times Square anyone?!  That’s a big yes from this Rotten gal.  


The Ultimate S’mores: Only 2 DAYS left to try it!


We had a dessert adventure afternoon at Dominique Ansel Kitchen for the Ultimate S’mores treat!  WOW. This was the biggest S’mores we’ve ever seen!  The marshmallow was fist size and torched to form a crisp outer layer.  Sandwiched between two Speculoos cookies, the “chocolate” was smooth and soft spread on the bottom with chocolate covered crispies.  The top layer was delicately shaved milk chocolate.  You guys, this one was a perfect fall treat and full of nostalgia.  What will Dominique Ansel create next?!  GO, you have 2 days left to try this beast!


Spooky Halloween Treats at Ladurée

It’s a spooky fun Halloween at Ladurée with treats galore!  We’re particularly loving the festive box of Nutella macarons.  It’s a perfect size for a Halloween gift.  Who doesn’t like Nutella?  Said no one.  They also have a new selection of mini chocolate bars in their signature colors:  pink, green, and blue.  The pink is ivory chocolate with a rose flavor, the green is dark chocolate with cocoa from Madagascar and fruit notes, and the blue is Guanaja milk chocolate.  Something for everyone’s taste buds this weekend!  Happy Halloween!


A Blueberry Streusel Sundae!


Trestle on Tenth, located in Chelsea, has a ridiculous blueberry sundae on their menu! It consists of layers on streusel, vanilla ice cream, and blueberry compote all perfectly placed in a large glass. Everything about this sundae is just right. I loved the creamy ice cream and the sweet streusel, but the whole blueberries swimming in a sugar sauce mixed with fresh whipped cream took me to dessert heaven. Head to Trestle on Tenth as fast as you can it’s worth every bite!
