It’s getting colder out, and while we love the brisk entry of fall, sometimes we like to pretend its still summer. We shot designer Rebecca Taylor at Tacombi for a bit of a beach-in-Mexico throwback. After all, we’re definitely a site for all seasons and who better than to throwback with then one of America’s most whimsical designers? Yeah, that’s what we thought.
The New Potato: Describe your ideal food day.
Rebecca Taylor: "Poached eggs on multi-grain toast, vegetables, and grilled chicken from Dig Inn Market, and a chicken burger and mashed potatoes from Purbird in Brooklyn. Or if I feel like a treat — dinner at Tacombi."
TNP: What would your last meal be?
"Chicken with champagne sauce and potatoes Dauphinoise."
TNP: How do you start your day on a good note?
"With decaf coffee and some yogurt from Chobani."
TNP: What are some of your healthy routines?
"As far as exercise, I like finding different, fun ways to stay in shape. If my time wasn’t so limited, I’d try out a new dance class every week! Right now, when time allows, I’ve been taking swing classes."
TNP: What catches your eye on every menu?
"Fried chicken."
TNP: What are your favorite places to travel to?
"I can never get enough of Paris. I also love going to Turks and Caicos to relax with my family."
TNP: What won’t you travel without?
"A cashmere wrap or blanket."
TNP: Where do you draw inspiration from?
"So many things — people, music, museums, books, New York."
