Style Maker Carson Kressley Shares His Best Of Gay New York City
Gay List Daily , is a swank e-publication dedicated to making the trendy, gay individual even more trendy and gay. I have been a subscriber for a few months now. “Our diligent staff searches far and wide the worlds of culture and couture, of food and festivities, and anything else that you just absolutely have to know about.”
This week they are launching a recurring feature to explore the favorite spots in the city frequented by gaydored LGBT (or friendly) celebrities, in various categories that make New York the greatest, gayest city in the world. Carson Kressley , style-maker, icon, TV personality and down-to-Earth fairy godfather (from his work on How To Look Good Naked to his upcoming judging role on True Beauty), is the first in the series of Q & A.
So what are Carson’s top picks for New York?
Carson’s choice brunch spot: BG Restaurant at Bergdorf Goodman. I love the old fashioned glamour of eating IN an actual department store. The view of Central Park is a bonus!
Favorite pizza: Two Boots in the West Village.
Favorite restaurant worthy of dressing up for: Monkey Bar – dress to impress (and to get a decent table!).
Favorite dessert: Milkshake from the Shake Shack in Madison Square Park.
Favorite vintage shopping: The Garage Flea market in Chelsea. Full of cute design oriented gays and tchotchkes they love: vintage clothes, paintings, and silver.
Favorite off-the-radar menswear boutique: I’m not sure it’s off the radar anymore, but Ina Men in Nolita is the stylist’s secret for both buying and selling top notch gently worn menswear.
Favorite dance floor: Sigh…there will never be another dance floor like the Roxy but Hiro on a Sunday night is the next best thing!
Favorite dive bar: Barracuda.
Favorite people watching spot: Bryant Park, especially during Fashion Week.
Favorite spot to get away from it all: My roof deck!
Favorite spot to be yourself: At home with friends.
