Polo Bar

Polo Bar

Fashion’s new canteen has hit New York. The long-awaited Polo Bar from classic American designer Ralph Lauren has opened its doors. After attending a VIP preview opening I have three words, designed to perfection. The wood paneled walls, tartan throw pillows and Polo emblazoned dishes are perfectly turned out. The menu filled with American classics such as steak and fries and cheeseburgers is super satisfying. They also know their customer, i.e. the fashion set, so light salads and all vegetable options abound.

Every Hue

Every Hue

The gardening shop Terrain in Westport has eye-catching moments everywhere you look and sells any item you could think of when discussing gardening gadgets. Their packets of blooms to plant are gorgeous, their boots, tools and inspiration books are all practical but thoughtful and the shop is stocked with fun seasonal items at all times. Look how adorable these mini glass ornaments are and so adorably displayed. The restaurant is a must visit, or the cafe for a glass of wine.
