New York Treasures

Continuing with some of my latest finds in NYC, this trip I finally made it to Tinsel Trading Company. Located on West 37th St., just off 5th Ave., this shop is a treasure trove of trims and embellishments, both new and vintage.

Claiming Martha Stewart's recommendation as "my favorite store in all of the world,"

one can spend hours here looking at trinkets and trims. Treat yourself and find this shop the next time you're in town! In the meantime, check out their website.

Have you read Eloise at the Plaza? Then you'd probably love her shop that I found

on the lower level concourse at The Plaza Hotel.

Definitely a shop to suit any young girl's fancy,

along with a tea room, it's a big city escape for girls of all ages.

Santa was waiting for us!

My favorite find at The Plaza, also on the Lower Level Concourse was the Plaza Food Hall.  Twenty kiosks which opened this past year, in addition to the famous chef Todd English's Food Hall make for a unique dining or grazing experience with both counter style dining and seated table space.

Many NY food institutions are located here, including Tartinery, William Greenberg Desserts, Maison du Chocolat, 

Francois Payard Patisserie, Lady M, Pain d'Avignon,

Billy's Bakery and Kusmi Tea from Paris to name just a few.

So with so much to choose from, what was our dinner of choice that night???

Very hard to choose, but the reviews of Luke's Lobster convinced us

that a Lobster Roll was just what we needed.

Of course, there were cupcakes for dessert to take back to the hotel for a bed time treat!

Next time you find yourself in the area of the Plaza where affordable and fun food options are sometimes hard to find, pop into the Plaza and treat yourself. 
I'm sure that you and Eloise will have a smashing time!
