Georgetown Cupcake

I feel like the cupcake boom has kind of died down in these last few years. No? I’m all about donuts from “Dough” at this moment. Not because I like the taste, but more that I enjoy taking photos of donuts. Their donuts are super chubby and adorable ♥ Although, I still sometimes pick up cupcakes for a dinner party, birthday, or baby shower. They’re just so colorful and have so many options to choose from for your taste. Plus, they’re size is perfect by being small enough for everyone to have one (^_^)

Here is list of yummy cupcake shops in downtown New York:

Little Cupcake Bakeshop – Prince Street in Nolita

Sugar Sweet Sunshine – Rivington Street in Lower East Side

BabyCakes NYC – Broom Street (Allergy and Gluten Free friendly!)

Butter Lane Cupcakes – 7th Street in East Village

Billy’s Bakery – 9th Avenue in Chelsea

Georgetown Cupcake – Mercer Street in SOHO

Beauty & Essex

www.beautyandessex.com146 Essex St , NYC

This is one of the largest restaurants that has opened in the LES with 10,000 square feet on two floors. I believe it’s Chef Chris Santos‘s second restaurant in NYC (he owns Stanton Social a few block away).  The ambiance is more of the style in the Meat Packing area where the space is very flashy and luxurious (think circa Glam 70s and sexy!). This is the spot to go with a bunch of friends, not if you want to have an intimate dinner or with parents who are in town. The main dining room is downstairs and upstairs is lounge style (you can order the full menu upstairs too.) Their tapas menu is big & food is very good. Often at this type of giant sized trendy spot the food is just ok …but everything here is very good. The bone marrow with shallot marmalade is one of the best I EVER had, even better than Prune’s …and I love Prune. Trendy Japanese Shishito Peppers are a must to order and share. The tapas size & price is fair except for their meatballs (after I found out it was $18, I will never order it again, especially when a few blocks away you can have amazing meatballs for $7 at The Meatball Shop).
