This past weekend, we spent in the City, the first time since November 2020, and it was wonderful. We started our weekend at a delightful new find, Buvette on Grove Street in the West Village. This charming French bistro has outposts in Paris, London and Tokyo. It describes itself as "Part restaurant, part bar, part café, Buvette combines the elegance of an old world café with the casual nature of a neighborhood eatery. It is a light filled space for an early morning espresso or a long lunch of shared dishes, even a spot for a late night digestif."
Tin ceilings, brick walls, a marble bar and copper pots strewn about create the ambiance of a neighborhood cafe in Paris. There is a small garden in the rear and a large "communal table" in a separate room. Drinks are made with fresh squeezed juices (the watermelon cocktail was perfect on this hot summer day), the wine list is fantastic and the food delicious and much of it is locally sourced. I enjoyed a Jambon Cru, eggs, prosciutto and shaved parmesan, others had a Croque Monsieur and a Croque Madame. The fries were to die for.
The only downside is that they do not take reservations, so you may find yourself on a line outside....but it is worth it.
FIND YOUR BEST WEEKEND - ROYAL PALMS
Located at the base of the Camelback Mountains, The Royal Palms Resort & Spa is truly an oasis in every sense of the word. There is a sense of tranquility here that you will find in few other places. The sprawling hacienda style estate is meticulously manicured and has wonderful meandering pathways between buildings and around courtyards and fountains. Throughout the property there are intimate little nooks, some with fountains, some with fireplaces that are perfect for reading or quiet conversation. The lush gardens release intoxicating scents of citrus, eucalyptus and sage.
Built originally in the late 1920’s as a private retreat for a couple from New York, it first became an inn in 1948 and after passing through many hands over the years, it was purchased by an Arizona businessman in 1995 who set about restoring the property to its original glory. READ MORE
