In Jean Genie, David Bowie says, "New York's a go go and everything tastes right."
I have enormous respect for Mr Bowie but I did have a very disappointing meatloaf last night and I can only assume that culinary standards have changed since he lived here.
Nevertheless, I did enjoy lunch with Oleg Rabinovitch of Surreal Eyewear. A cracking store with a really creative collection of frames.
In the afternoon I popped over to Brooklyn and discovered The Monocle Order, a very cool basement store and members club. Zoe Nightingale seeks out unusual and hard to find eyewear and the result is superb.
Looking forward to catching up with some old friends before I hope back over "The Pond."
