Enrique Norten of Ten Arquitectos

Whenever the opportunity presents itself, I will attend an architectural exhibit or go to a lecture. Recently, I had the privilege of attending  a preservation lecture by Enrique Norten. Of the buildings he has restored, the Chopo Museum in Mexico City was my favorite. I am always inspired when there is a combination of  old and new.

This is an original cast iron structure …

Washington D.C.

Jefferson Memorial Washington Memorial Cherry Blossoms Jose Andre’s Zaytinya. I was at Jose’s restaurant almost 10 years ago and the food was incredible. I was excited  to dine at Zaytinya this trip and was a amazed by the delicious food. It has the best turkish/greek/lebanese tapas. Jose is opening Bazaar Miami in May 2012. Bazaar L.A. has received rave reviews. The restaurant will be designed by Philippe Starck and the cuisine will be latin/asian tapa’s. One can not be in Washington D.C without stopping at Georgetown Cupcakes. The salty carmel cupcake was to die for.
