Best recent discovery: Rodin Facial Serum; truffle honey that I drizzle on top of cheese; musician Blood Orange.

Favorite haunts: The Hole Gallery on Bowery; Black Mountain for oysters and wine in my neighborhood of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. I am a creature of comfort and don't stray too far off from my staples—Omen, Raouls, Miss Lily's, Indochine and Ñ on Crosby Street.
Winter wish list: A fox fur blanket in rich grays and browns; something sensible like a puffy Northface jacket; a very large tin of very expensive caviar; time to head up to Bemelman’s bar at the Carlyle for a glass of vintage Scotch.
