My favorite neighborhood in NYC is Tribeca.  It is really low key and quiet with cobblestone streets and some of the best restaurants in the city.   My favorite weekend activity is walking around Tribeca and popping into different restaurants for apps and a drink.  Sarabeth's is a neigborhood staple in Tribeca and while it is most popular for it's brunch, I actually think it has an amazing bar space that is perfect for a cocktail.  The atomosphere is bright, casual and family friendly.  Since the vibe is so comfortable, I wore a super casual weekend look of a camo shirt layered over a simple white tank and my new favorite ripped jeans from Paige denim.  My vans sneakers topped off the outfit.  During this visit I opted for a Lava Cap Cabernet Sauvignon that is perfect for sipping on with a light app!  To shop my look, or the wine, click the links above or below.

Lava Cap Cabernet, $17.99, Buy 

What The Experts Say:

Lava Cap's estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon grapes have long been recognized for producing a wine with lovely structure and vibrant fruit character. The fragrant must of fruit was cold-soaked for three days to enhance color and flavor.The youthful exuberance of this Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a nose of cherry, cloves and toasted oak. Full bodied and well structured, with soft tannins concentrated on the mid palate, this wine finishes with rich, red fruit kissed with a little French Vanilla.

What I say:

This cabernet is perfect with a hearty meal or for sipping on while out with friends.  It is full bodied and has vanilla and cherry notes.  I would definitely recommend this is you are looking for a good wine at your Thanksgiving day table!

My search for the perfect outdoor sidewalk table continues this week with a stop in at Seabird restaurant in Greenwich Village, NYC.  Seabird is a Mediterranean restaurant with a bistro like atomsphere and a beachy vibe.  Even though the menu predominately focuses on seafood (which I don't eat), the outdoor seating makes this place the perfect pit stop for a glass of wine on a nice sunny day.   On this visit I ordered a glass of the Raimbault Sancerre and sat right outside under the awning and watched everyone walking up and down 6th avenue.  Since I was making a stop while running errands, I had on a super casual outfit.  This Michael Stars top is one of my favorite purchases this summer. The shoulder cut outs are perfect for heading into the fall season and the color adds a great pop to the outfit.  Pair it with destroyed denim and metallic sandals for maximum shine.  To shop the wine, or this look click the links above and below.

Raimbault et. Fils Sancerre, $20 purchase

What The Experts Say:

This classic Sancerre wine is white, bracingly acidic, and has pungent aromas of gooseberries, grass, nettles, and a hint of stony minerality. 

What I Say:

I recently started drinking Sancerre to switch things up from my typical rosé.  This glass was so crisp and refreshing!  It was perfect for this hot summer day.  With notes of lemon and pear, it is perfect for pairing with seafood or a chicken dish.  Two thumbs up!

There is nothing I love more than sitting outside at a restaurant in the West Village and sipping on some crisp white wine with cheese and bread.  Rosemary's is one of my favorite spots for this activity.  Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, Rosemary’s is an Italian restaurant with a rooftop farm that serves up fresh seasonal dishes.  The wine list offers an abundance of Italian wines at affordable price points as well as reserve wines if you want to dial things up a notch.  Today I chose the 2016 Terlano Pinot Bianco from Italy paired with Ricotta Fresca and Humble Pie cheese.  I am obsessed with the lavender spiced honey and bread they serve with the cheese.  Everything tastes so fresh and is perfect for a Saturday afternoon bite.  Today it was super hot so I wore my favorite distressed Current Elliot jeans and Splendid tank top.  To add a fun pop of shine I wore an embellished pair of sandals and layered on my rings and jewelry.  To shop the look or wine click the links above and below.

Terlano Pinot Bianco $20, purchase 

What The Experts Say:

With wonderful aromas of apple cider, chalk and lemon zest, this clean and focused wine expands on the palate to reveal warm apple crisp, clove and quince nuances. Possessing a long, concentrated citrus finish, this wine pairs perfectly with roasted pork, shellfish and egg-based sauces or as a charming cocktail beverage.

What I Say:

This is the perfect wine for a hot summer day!  Crisp and refreshing with notes of green apples and citrus.  Perfect with ricotta cheese and honey.
