EAT - Café Clover
The menu at this California-inspired restaurant is perfect for vegans, vegetarians, carnivores and everyone in between. The expansive offerings include health-conscious, seasonal and locally-sourced fare that is imaginatively plated. The inviting atmosphere, whether you’re dining inside at the bar or on the outdoor terrace, is a true place to see and be seen. Our top menu pick? The Autumn Vegetable Stew made with ivory lentils, butternut squash, shiitake, brussels and served with a pumpernickel baguette
SWEAT - Y7 Studio
Candlelight, hip hop and Vinyasa may not seem to make sense together, but at Y7 Yoga these three elements combine for a fitness routine unlike any other. Talented instructors with five locations in New York teach their own unique Vinyasa yoga class called WeFlowHard that features a candlelit setting with a thumping soundtrack.
