The Winter Show at New York City's Park Avenue Armory and Dinner at Daniel

If you're in the New York City area through Sunday, January 29th, there's still time to attend The Winter Show at the historic Park Avenue Armory - just click on the highlighted link to get tickets.

The Winter Show is the country's première art, antiques, and design fair. This year is its 69th annual edition. Last week, I attended the event's Opening Party along with antiques and design professionals, and private collectors. The affair included works spanning thousands of years presented by more than 65 internationally renowned dealers. We saw the most exquisite pieces - paintings, fine furniture, jewelry, ceramics, glass, wood, and so many more. The Show is a benefit for the East Side House Settlement, a community-centered organization serving the South Bronx, which combats poverty and focuses on using education and technology to help individuals pursue career goals and further economic opportunities - it's a most noble and worthy cause. Following The Winter Show, I enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends at Daniel, the extraordinary flagship establishment owned by my friend and celebrated chef, Daniel Boulud. Daniel is one of my favorite restaurants serving award-winning, contemporary cuisine rooted in French tradition.
