My last trip to New York felt different. Admittedly, it was the fourth time I’ve been there and the feeling of awe and excitement was a bit replaced by a “been here, done that”. Don’t get me wrong, the city remains one of my favorites but I think I’d prefer to explore new places first before I return to the Big Apple again. Since tourist mode was off (I’ve done quite a few spots of the bucket list already and checked off some new ones as well), I wanted to explore some of the places locals were raving about. New York is full of spots to eat & drink, but you have to put in a little more effort to find the ones that are more original when it comes to healthy breakfast and lunch options. The Butcher’s Daughter is one of those places that ticks off all the hipster boxes. Cozy, trendy interior: check. Healthy food options: check. All kinds of cleansing juices and fancy coffee: check. I tried the avocado toast (what else?) and it was good, but very basic when it came to presentation. Think: two big toasts casually thrown on a random plate with some apple pieces next to it. The obsessive Instagram side of me was definitely dissapointed by that – but hey, sometimes it’s also okay to just enjoy your food without an elaborate shoot. (RIGHT?)


I do give extra props to this “vegetable slaughter house” for the initiative and effort to buy products from local farms and thinking of creative ways to prepare fruits & vegetables. So yes, do stop by at The Butcher’s Daughter and try their food when you’re in the neighborhood (especially when you can sit outside during the warmer days).

As much as I’m looking forward to the days when it’s no longer necessary to wear a coat and oversized scarf, I guess there’s something charming about warming up with a cup of tea after walking around in the cold too. Last Sunday I went brunching in Brussels – and as much as I adore the idea and concept behind it, I have to admit most places often disappoint me a bit in the end. Whether it’s the price tag for what you receive or the general selection of the food – I have yet to find the perfect place that satisfies my every breakfast need. In any case, I’m always up for trying out new places to eat & Yeti certainly is a cute spot with lovely ambiance. I’ve been taking these booties out of the closet way more often these days (I don’t really know why I ever neglected them in the first place) – they’re pretty perfect to attain that casual chic Sunday look.
