narcissa || 21 cooper square, ny ny 10005 || (212)228-3344
a new, sophisticated, delicious addition to the east village is that of narcissa, located inside the standard hotel in cooper square. as you make your way to the restaurant, you’ll be sure to find some notable decor reminiscent of pleasant pastimes…
the menu is sure to be satisfactory, carefully created by a michelin star chef, john fraser.
the dish that stood out:
i usually cringe at the thought of risotto because i internally calculate how many more minutes of cardio i must do to work it off + the sloth-who-overdosed-on-heavy-cream feeling afterwards, but this…bravo mister chef! it was the perfect rendition of risotto.
now for the mains i tried…
and finally, dessert…
cheers to narcissa for a delicious dinner!
indochine’s 30th anniversary, cheers!
“you look like sex in the city…but younger.”
i took it as a compliment graciously and hurried off before he could scrutinize the ever-so-classy run on my hosiery.

as promised, part 2 [revised 11/12]: more
debauchery photos & stories from the actual party inside:
the thing about indochine: this sexy restaurant serving french vietnamese fare has been able to keep their wow factor for their loyal [very fashionable] crowd that keeps returning for more, and it must have some magic to draw in the new, unlike other fleeting venues in new york that come & go, leaving no lasting impressions [like the girl/boy you forgot you ever made out with].
so m.a.c. cosmetics hosted their big 3-0 birthday bash, themed red decadence. i nibbled on their delicious hors d’oeuvres, mingled with beautiful people, rubbed elbows with designers such as john varvatos, richard chai, and the blonds, watched the performances by company xiv whose artistic director has caught the eyes of even baz luhrmann, so i’ve heard.
there were masks, there were feathers, there were cages, there were sparkly pasties + nipple tassels, and there was a photobooth!
it was a truly glitzy,
nipple-revealing glamorous party, dubbed the biggest bash of the year.
and now more flashbacks:
indochine’s 25th anniversary party
happy 30th birthday, indochine!!!
masquerade…pretty faces on parade. wearing lolli poppit’s tutu + a second tutu underneath to give it more volume. pink metal mask from venice.i like masquerades but when it comes to halloween, i’m not the most festive. perhaps it’s because almost everyday feels like dress-up for me, like this ballerina look, styling also by lolli poppit & another favorite, liucia:
“is that a watch on your finger or are you just excited to see me?”
as he tried to touch my venetian beak, i pulled away & said, “no i don’t think so.” he pouted underneath his mask, & said in complete dejection, “you suck.” then he scurried off.
that’s my halloween round-up for you! now cheer yourself up by watching jimmy kimmel’s “i told my kids i ate their halloween candy” challenge.
