HOLIDAY CHEER: stay warm, be well and don't forget the coffee.

One of my favorite places to visit during the holidays is Café Sabarsky in the Neue Galerie. The Museum is one of my favorites as well—on now, Lauder's private collection—but the café, especially, evokes old world Europe and is ever festive.

The coffee is good, the setting elegant, and the apple strudel with whipped cream, bliss. Wishing you all happy holidays, whatever you celebrate (or don't). Stay warm, be well and don't forget the coffee.

And a little something from the Frick Museum's terrific exhibition, Picasso's Drawings, 1890–1921: Reinventing Tradition—another favorite museum, beautifully decked out for the holidays. The show is on until January 8th if want to catch it—it's worth it.
