If you are looking for a bright, festive cocktail this holiday weekend try a Rossini. It's a wonderful alternative to a Bellini and makes a fun addition to a tableful of colorful Easter eggs. You'll need a bottle of Prosecco or dry sparking wine and some strawberries

A little tidbit for you - The Rossini is named after the famed Italian opera composer, Gioacchino Rossini, author of The Barber of Seville, among others. The sparkling drink was created at Harry's Bar in Venice along with the other famous cocktail, the Bellini. Cin Cin!

In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone.

So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:
