I don’t have a residence in New York, so I suppose I’d have to name residence the 4 Seasons. It has a very particular place in my coronary heart. Once I first began “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Larry David and I got here [around 1999] to kick off the primary season when no one had seen the present but. We had a martini on the bar. It felt very fancy. Now each time I am going to the 4 Seasons, I see that second in my life. It’s a enjoyable place to be with girlfriends for a dirty martini on the rocks. That’s what I like, if you’re shopping for!
As for my mornings, I like to work out at my go-to health club, Equinox. I really want yoga in my life. Not solely does it assist me keep in form, it helps me really feel centered. If I’ve an hour or 90-minute class, I’m not specializing in something however attempting to get by way of a pose. Then I’ll sit round and drink smoothies on the mini-bar.
Final time I used to be right here, I used to be on the Plaza Lodge and went to the underground meals corridor for lunch. My husband — who spends a lot of time in New York — and I sat on the counter and dined at Luke’s Lobster.
Then my girlfriend and I went to the Chess & Checkers Home in Central Park. It’s a little constructing with built-in checker tables. We acquired some checkers in change for a driving license. It appears like a lot that you’re going to lose your driver’s license if you take off with their 10-year-old checkers.
My favourite restaurant is Tao. I might in all probability go to the one in LA, however I by no means discover myself getting dressed up to exit to dinner for no motive there. However after I’m right here, I like Tao. The Buddha offers me a lot of religious vitality.
It’s a fully totally different vibe in New York. As quickly as you step onto the sidewalk, you have to get with the movement and hold transferring. All the pieces’s quick; there’s an vitality and electrical energy. Issues you simply don’t get in LA.
