On a quest for the next big thing in the food industry, sisters Danielle and Laura Kosann have begun the journey with The New Potato. Profiling chefs, restauranteurs, and celebrities alike with cuisine questionnaires, the world of dining has reached a whole new level of delish. This week, the ladies share Rebecca Dayan's top NY spots.
It’s no secret all of us American ladies have a little bit of a French-Girl-girl-crush. We also all like to hope we have a little French girl in us in general. Actress Rebecca Dayan has just reminded us why we’re all such francophiles — her story today may be one of our favorite TNP shoots to date.
With the unbearable cold lately, we’ve all needed a bit of a reminder of why we love New York so much. Today’s answer? Dayan against the backdrop of Grand Central — what’s more New York than that? After all, if anyone could make New Yorkers appreciate Grand Central, it’s a chic French girl. Dayan shared her ten favorite spots to frequent while she’s in the Big Apple. Maybe if we go to them we’ll speed up our metamorphoses from American girls to French girls.
