There seems to be a growing trend of restaurants decorating their spaces to be social media friendly. I first got wind of While We Were Young scrolling through Instagram and judging by the pictures, I knew I needed to check it out. This quaint West Village restaurant is a bloggers dream complete with fresh cut roses, marble, and blush pink and gold accents. The menu is small but tasty serving blogger favorites such as avocado toast, burgers and salads and the cocktail menu offers drinks that are just as picturesque as the decor. I stopped in right before the after work cocktail crowd and got seated right away by the window which is my favorite place for people watching. The space is really small but just as beautiful as it looks on Instagram. I chose the Marquis de la Tour champagne which was a great choice for a quick after work sip. I wore one my favorite t-shirts from American Eagle paired with these summer pants from J Brand that are super comfy and the perfect light shade of lilac. I added the necklace for a cool pop of color and coincidentally it went perfectly with the color scheme of the restaurant. If you live in NYC or are visiting for the weekend, this is a great place to stop in for a drink, small bite and most importantly, pretty pics for your feed.
Marquis de la Tour Brut, $10.99, Purchase
What The Experts Say:
The wine is pale gold with fine bubbles. The aroma is delicate with floral aspects, while the taste is crisp, clean and light with melon flavors.
What I Say:
This champagne was super crisp and light. It was fizzing with bubbles and had a pretty sharp dry taste. Great for serving at a party or a light meal.
