Tacomobi at Fonda Nolita is one of my favorite lunch spots. Aside from the flawless tacos, I love the high ceilings, the skylights, which let in some beautiful light, and the festive yet industrial interior. Yesterday, I stopped by for a quick lunch and had my two favorite tacos: the seared veracruzana fish and barbacoa. They also serve fresh pressed juices (I recommend the Verde), which partner great with a taco (or two!).

The quaint Collyer’s Mansion is a beautifully curated haven of ceramics, jewelry, tapestries, books, glassware and other unique treasures for the home. I had the pleasure of meeting Mauri, one of the shop’s owners, who is not only an inspiration in herself, but also a pure delight to get to know. I left with a wish list including just about everything in the store and an even greater yearning to create my dream interior space. After all, this shop had me at “white brick wall”…
