Despana at 410 Broome Street in Soho is a whole pile of Spain wrapped up into one! Well, actually four. We first discovered their food shop and tapas cafe a couple of years ago when we switched offices. The food shop has a ridiculous selection of meats, cheeses, breads, olive oils, vinegars, olives and more. Their tortilla bocadillos at the cafe are craveable and everything from the salads to soups to pintxos are made fresh daily. Next door is their wine shop which has the largest selection of Spanish wines this side of the Atlantic and the most amazingly friendly staff to go with them. If that’s not enough, they have a chorizo factory in Queens! They have been making and distributing the spicy links there since 1971. In short, this place is pretty incredible. We got this gift basket for a chef client of ours who loves to entertain. The folks at our revered Despana did a fantastic job of customizing it. Thank you!
By Carol A. Feuerman. Installed at the northern tip of the long awaited and recently opened Lieutenant Petrosino Square (it’s actually a triangle, but whatever), this hyper-realistic and large installation never fails to stop people in their tracks as they cross Lafayette Street and Cleveland Place at Spring Street. Survival of Serena first debuted at the 2007 Venice Biennale and went on to win first prize at the Beijing Biennale the following year. It’s an unexpected and wonderful addition to this insanely bustling and culturally rich neighborhood.
