This dreary spring weather in NYC has me desperately craving the French Riviera right now, and what better time to be on the Cote d' Azur than during the Monaco Grand Prix. On the tail end of the Cannes Film Festival, without the doubt the most glamorous festival in the world, the Monegasque Grand Prix is another bucket list Riviera activity.
If you're stuck in NY most of the summer like me because of weddings (agh!!!) and the continent's calling your name, try new hotspot in SoHo, Chicane, a great new restaurant named for the hairpin turns in the famed race. For more info on Chicane, see my article in Scene Magazine's May 2014 issue, or online.
