One of the best things about New York is the constant flow of new restaurant openings. It's a city where you'd never have to eat the same thing twice (if you wished to do so). De Maria is one of New York's latest additions to the all-day-café-scene, and I think I'm already in love. Everything is aesthetically pleasing, down to the very last detail, which is exactly the kind of place I like.

My last New York post ended last Thursday morning, after my boxing class at Gotham Gym. What I got up to in the long weekend: some partying, enjoying the first days of real spring in the city, going for brunch in Brooklyn, exploring Williamsburg and just wandering around the city without a plan. The weather was just incredible and you could really feel the city come alive. The same thing always happened in London, when the first days of spring came around and it felt like an entirely different city. It's probably my favourite time of the year.

New York is a photographer's paradise. Everything is photogenic, from the buildings to the people to the food. Even the simplest picture of a yellow cab driving by with the Flatiron building in the background looks great. You hardly need to make an effort to take good photos in New York, which also explains why there's an infinite amount of incredible NYC Instagram accounts. I've picked my 7 favourites for you today!

Because I'm feeling a little homesick, I thought I'd squeeze in an Antwerp post between all my talk about New York. Juno is a restaurant in Antwerp which opened last summer, so it's still kind of new! They're best known for their beautiful plant-based lunch dishes so I took a friend here for my last lunch in Antwerp back in December.

Buvette is one of those brunch classics in New York that everyone seems to go to at least once during their stay in the city. Which is funny, because it's French, not American. It's located in Greenwich Village, in a charming little street. Last Sunday, I went with two friends and we had one of the most decadent brunches I've had in a while!
After a long morning at the Met, my friend Fernando and I were absolutely starving. When I suggested we'd go to The Dumpling Man (which he had told me about) I got an immediate "YES!" so we hopped on the subway to the East Village, in search for dumplings. It's exactly what we needed on that freezing cold and rainy day.
