“This is in my neighborhood. I was frequenting Da Silvano, and since the early 90s, started going to Bar Pitti, which is the more casual restaurant next door. It has great food, an endlessly cool crowd, and a wait staff that knows you without knowing you—a perfect New York anonymity.” – Claudia Gould

What To Wear To Bar Pitti
“A great hot yoga studio in the West Village that I have been going to since it opened in 2012. In the past three years, it has gone from quiet to running a wait list. It’s fantastic—but time to expand to another floor!” -Claudia Gould
