7 Days Until NYC.....Restaurant Decor

Countdown to NYC: 7 Days.

Now we're on to fave restaurant decor.....

LOVE Buddakan in the Meatpacking District.

It was actually the set of Carrie and Big's Rehersal dinner in the first Sex and the City movie.

It's where she gave Big, "The Last Single Girl Kiss...."

Love the decor. It's chic and modern.
It also doesn't hurt that the asian fusion food is FABULOUS.

Sweetie Pie on Greenwich Ave. looks SO adorable. 
Could the pink tufted booths be any more precious?

When I was in New York last fall, we took my friend Liz (of Elizabeth Olliver) to Mari Vanna for her birthday. It's a traditional Russian restaurant. Think chilled vodka, dill butter, and hearty steaks.
And the decor looks to be straight of of Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic world.

It was so surreal to be in a restaurant like that.
It was like having tea in your very own GIANT dollhouse.

Liz's now husband Andrew had to dine with us in the doll house.
With all girls.
What a trooper!

oh, and in case you're wondering, the porcelain doll was sitting at our table.
We re-named her Helen.
