When my friend, Bentley Waters, posted about a favorite new shop in her town…I emailed her that we should meet for lunch at check it out.
About that same time, my friend, Patricia of pve design, sent Bentley the same message.
So, that’s what we did on a sunny Summer day. We started at Mariani Gardens in Armonk — they have a wonderful cafe. May I recommend the chickpea salad?
The artist, the photographer…and I was dubbed the “purveyor” by Patricia. I thought that was a pretty good description for me. A gatherer of sorts.
Next, it was off to Kent in Chappaqua (home to Chelsea Clinton’s mom and dad, aka Hil and Bill or mom and dad of the bride this week). Opened by Michael Kalesti, Kent is a delightful home decor shop that offers a mix of older and contemporary furnishings and hip accessories.
What a fun day! Next time Bentley has promised to take me down the road to Don Emilio’s — where she says the margaritas are very tasty!
Have you gone someplace new this summer?
