The Perfect Saturday in Brookfield Place
Your jam-packed guide to the perfect day
A while back, we told you how to spend the ultimate Saturday alone in NYC. Great!, you said, But what if I don’t want to spend all day waiting for the subway? To that we say thank goodness for the new Brookfield Place.
Four years and $300 million in the works, it’s a hub for all things shopping, eating, relaxing and adventuring. But…the Tribeca complex can be a touch overwhelming. So we pared it down the best bets and compiled your perfect Saturday itinerary.
10 a.m.: Fuel up
Once inside, head to Hudson Eats (also known as the coolest food court ever) for a next-level breakfast at Black Seed Bagels. (Might we recommend the poppy-seed bagel with tobiko caviar and watermelon radish?)
10:45 a.m.: Spruce up your spring wardrobe
Vince, DVF, Tory Burch and Theory are just a few of the shops at your sartorial disposal.
1 p.m.: Refuel
Time for a midday caffeine fix. A Stumptown iced coffee from Olive’s should do the trick.
1:30 p.m.: Work up a sweat
Spinning or sauna-ing--your choice. Inspired by luxury yacht design, this Equinox may or may not give you the fanciest sweat sesh of your life. (If you’re not a member, get a friend to hook you up with a day pass.)
3 p.m.: Feast on killer sushi
After a quick shower (real or fake), settle into a late lunch at Blue Ribbon’s 16-seat sushi bar.
5 p.m.: Stroll and shop some more
This is a mall, after all. In addition to filling your closet, maybe work on your bookshelves and coffee tables at Posman Books.
6 p.m.: Become a better cook
Take a class at the Institute for Culinary Education. Whether you’re perfecting your knife skills or pairing wine with Danny Meyer, it’s hard to go wrong with any of ICE’s countless options.
