today we’re headed to new york city, where, in my humble opinion they have some of the coziest restaurants around. and Smith & Mills is one of the coziest. located in a converted carriage house with kind of a steampunk vibe and a reverence for industrial chic design — vintage vibes abound, from those plush leather booths to the cafe tables and schoolhouse chairs. owners Akiva Elstein and Matthew Abramcyk have created an inviting environment where soft lights envelope aging materials, from walls wrapped in molded plaster to a bar and doors fabricated from centuries-old wood, even to a turn-of–the-century elevator cabin. it’s the perfect spot for a classic cocktail — might i suggest a manhattan? we’re gonna get our new york best on with a very feminine blue sheer dotted dress, a slinky black waist jacket and sexy tall black boots. we’ll give it some new york edge with some deep blue nail polish and eye shadow. if you’re at the bar on your own, and there’s no shame in that, might i suggest carrying a copy of The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone by olivia laing — the perfect new york read. a celebration of a strange and lovely state, adrift from the larger continent of human experience, but intrinsic to the very act of being alive.
