In case you haven’t heard, we’re very excited to announce that we’re launching our first ever Pop-Up shop! From December 1 – 15, you’ll be able to shop some of our most amazing pieces in person at 79 Greene St. in SoHo. Come in to see and touch the Birkin you’ve been eyeing, and talk to our gemologists and authentication experts who will be there to answer questions about everything from fine jewelry and watches (hello, Cartier and Rolex), to menswear, women’s fashion, fine art and luxe pieces for your home. You’ll be able to shop everything you need to check off your gift list, and with our guide to the neighborhood, you can make a day of it. Read on for our list of the best nearby SoHo spots to grab bite, a drink or a manicure to keep you going while you shop.
Fuel up before shopping with this spot’s elevated egg dishes and American-Mediterranean specialties like their Rosewater waffle topped with Lebanese yogurt. Founded by a husband and wife team who channel the comfort food cooking of their families in South Africa and Israel, the atmosphere is casual yet chic, and the early to late hours mean you can stop by anytime.
If you’re looking for the place where the cool girls get their manicures, this is it. More light-filled apartment than nail salon, tenoverten’s cozy SoHo location is the perfect place to relax and give your feet a break after a day of walking cobblestone streets. On offer are polishes from brands like Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and NARS alongside the salon’s own line of vegan, nontoxic, 8-free polishes.
If you’re looking for a dinner destination to meet up with friends after checking off your gift list, try Seamore’s, brought to you by Michael Chernow of Meatball Shop. The cute seafood spot’s beach-shack-meets-trendy-SoHo-eatery interior makes it the perfect place to indulge in summery vibes during the cold of winter. Their menu channels the warmer months with poke bowls, kale and avocado salad and Montauk ale, but their updated fall/winter selection also features seasonal seaside-inspired dishes like curry mussels and seafood pozole.
Sometimes, all you need is a stiff drink. When that’s the case, stop by Mother’s Ruin. With a solid beer and wine selection as well specialty mixed drinks, including a slushie machine filled with grown-up alcoholic concoctions, this bar is a nice mix of cozy and cool. They also serve brunch every day of the week so you can satisfy any Sunday cravings Mon – Sat, too. It’s worth a stop just to see what clever cocktail names they have up on the letter boards.
When you’re craving the bakery’s signature Cronut, there’s simply nowhere else to go. But in addition to the croissant-donut-hybrid, you can satiate your sweet tooth with their signature Kouign Amann or Frozen S’mores — “Tahitian vanilla ice cream at the center, covered with crisp chocolate feuilletine, wrapped in our signature all-honey marshmallow, then torched to order and served on a smoked willow wood branch.” Yum.
