Surfeit in Savannah
It ain’t easy eatin’ healthy in Savannah, that’s for sure! Come hungry to this Southern town, because the food is famous – and equally fattening. But that’s part of the fun. Besides, if you’re not out touring Savannah all day by bike, you’re doing it all wrong anyway! Make sure to hit Clary’s Cafe for a full breakfast. This greasy spoon has been serving up fried eggs and corned beef hash since 1903, and the staff is sweet and sassy like right out of a a sitcom.
Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room is essential. A line gathers each morning and at 11am the doors of Mrs. Wilkes’ famed boarding house swing open. Tabletops are crowded with platters of fried chicken and cornbread dressing, sweet potato souffle, black-eyed peas, okra gumbo, corn muffins and biscuits. The fixins’ are served family style among friends and strangers sharing tables of ten. The food is beyond delicious – just don’t forget to bus your plate before you go. ‘Dems the rules.
Sometimes you pull off the side of the road and order ribs. When in Savannah, you might as well try the local spots outside the Historic District, too. Randy’s Bar B Q is a little road side stand big on keeping it real.
Bourbon Bacon Brownies, I mean!!! These little Tex Mex heart attacks were homemade by my favorite coffee shop in Savannah, Foxy Loxy. I tried Gallery Espresso, The Sentient Bean, Goose Feathers, but no shop came close to the fresh brewed goodness at Foxy. The best.
I’ve been unfashionably lazy when it comes to work attire of late. It’s summer and sweaty-humid-hot in NYC and I haven’t been putting in the effort. This desk/accessory inspiration is just what I needed! Now excuse me as I get back to typing…

I love the tees and sweatshirts by Out of Print Clothing. I own The Great Gatsby and Animal Farm in XL. They’re nice and cozy for around the house – and with the purchase of each shirt, one book is sent to a community in need.

I love this shot of 1950s women in their bathers grabbing a cup of coffee. And it reminded me of one of my favorite hotels in Miami, The Raleigh. Their old timey cafe off the lobby is so charming – a real throwback. I like to go there in the mornings and swivel on a stool with my cappuccino before heading out back to the pool. I snapped that shot back in January and thought the juxtaposition of these two images looked cool.
This is what a good morning looks like.

Good morning. It’s time to get started on some new projects…
Death Before Decaf. At vegan bakery (yeah, yeah) Champs, in Williamsburg.
Espresso in the light.

Panther Coffee in Miami is legit. I’d first discovered them at Il Buco Alimentari and Vineria (they serve Panther at the coffee bar), and I was eager to visit their headquarters in Miami. I dig the building’s bright green and orange honeycomb painting by graf artist Barry McGee.
Most importantly, though, they make a mean cappuccino. Rawr.
Cafecito Organico is dead serious when it comes to coffee. Their joint on Heliotrope Street was my coffee go-to whilst crashing in Hollywood. So pure, my bones were shakin!
Il Buco Alimentari and Vineria
Sneak peak at Il Buco Alimentari and Vineria, the restaurant’s lovely new offshoot on Great Jones Street. Cured meats, cheeses, oils, jams + more! Much of which can be found no where else in the States. PS They’re serving Panther Coffee, a legit Miami-based specialty coffee roaster established by former Stumptown Coffee peeps. Rawr, it’s good!
A perfect morning cappuccino. At Marina di Castagneto Carducci in Bolgheri, Italy.
Added a new coffee shop to my Chicago rotation: Ipsento. Soooo good. Located on Western Ave in Bucktown. I still love these java joints, too, though.
