The Whitney in Boston

Fall is by far my favorite season to experience in Boston, and now there’s a new hotel to make the ‘staycation’ a little sweeter. This summer, The Whitney Hotel, opened it’s doors in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood. The boutique property offers 65 rooms, a quiet courtyard for guests and Beacon Hill residents to retreat to, and the new Mediterranean restaurant, Peregrine, all elements adding to Charles Street allure. Whether you are looking for a city escape, or a new staycation location to rest your head, the Whitney is a new favorite that will complete the experience!

Must-try Restaurants:

They had us at daily lobster special! The Oyster Club located at the Heritage building (in the former Doretta location) is the latest fine dining restaurant to open in the Back Bay. The New England style menu brought to us by Chris Parsons will appeal to seafood lovers but we see there’s something for everyone like the Lily P fried chicken sandwich. This sandwich is sure to give us a taste of what’s to come at Parsons’ latest venture, a “fried chicken joint” opening in Cambridge. If Italian food is more your style, Orfano is now open in Fenway! Chef Tiffany Faison is bringing us Italian-American inspired dishes in a picture perfect setting on Boylston Street. We’ll be booking our Open Table reservations at both restaurants shortly.

Vineyard Heaven

I’ve been fortunate enough to visit Napa a few times in recent years, and each visit the region offers new experiences that never fail to surprise me! This year, we went right in the middle of harvest season, and every vineyard was bustling but we still found a few vineyards that made it seem less chaotic. By far our favorite vineyard and experience this trip was Reverie II Vineyard. Their estate is tucked away in the St. Helena region and tastings are by appointment only, and did not disappoint. From taking a quick ATV ride to a remote tasting area, to finding a few new favorites from their portfolio, I highly suggest adding this to the list your next trip. After showing up on a few recommendation lists from friends, we made reservations at Acacia House in St. Helena and it was by far the best meal I had on the trip. No detail was overlooked from atmosphere to service, and the food was absolutely incredible - our high compliments to the chef! Already looking forward to the next trip back, and will definitely revisit these favorites! - JD

Shopping The Cue

“Fit for the Trendy Professional” is The Cue’s tag line, and their shops are entirely just that! We had the chance to check out the newest location of this style lounge/shop in Legacy Place, and it not only had the perfect outfit for every scenario (work, date nights, lazy sundays, etc) but also so many great items for gifts for friends, co-workers, your favorite hostess, or those days when you want to just treat-your-self! Be sure to check out their location at Legacy Place this month, or their shop in Dorchester. We’re sure you’ll find what you need, even if you weren’t looking for it! - JJ

Fashion Week: NYC & Paris

September is a crucial month on the fashion calendar. Industry magazines’ largest most coveted issues like Vogue’s “bible” hit newsstands and the highly anticipated New York Fashion Week takes place in September (9/6-9/14) followed by Paris Fashion Week (9/23-10/1). We love seeing what top designers are showcasing for next season and of course check out who was there, what they wore and what parties had the best activations. Since we couldn’t be there we’re also following along to see what impressive work our client Jana Rago of Jana Rago Studios is up to. Rago is assisting lead hairstylists for runway shows at NYFW before traveling to Paris to style models for some of the biggest designer shows at Paris Fashion Week.
