ON THE GO Lunch out with friends: Co. by Jim Lahey. He is known for his bread and pizza but his salads are equally as fabulous. Brunch spot for a lazy weekend: Our home. We rarely eat brunch out because it is more relaxing and easier to do it at home. Night on the town: dell’anima. It’s in the village where most all is happening. My other favorite is Sorella. The chunk Sorella ice cream is divine. It’s so successful that they even opened a gelateria next door (Stellina). Dinner with Brandon and/or with girlfriends: ABC Kitchen. Dan Kluger is a good friend and he’s a wizard at preparing vegetables. PHOTO ABCKITCHENNYC.COM Dessert: ABC Kitchen’s caramel sundae with chocolate sauce and caramel corn. Divine!
