Rachel Antonoff

Fashion Designer

It’s all about the Upper West Side this week, so we toured the ‘hood’ of adorable fashion designer Rachel Antonoff (definitely one of our favorite Upper West Siders) for all her favorite food haunts. Antonoff is absolutely that girl that – immediately upon meeting her – you want to be best friends with (P.S: Did you see the “Best Friends” video she collaborated on with Lena Dunham?). We chilled with Antonoff as long as possible over white wine, Joe Coffee, Juice Press goodies and heart-shaped sunglasses of course…

What would be your ideal food day?

Okay – I would start with McDonald’s breakfast. Then for lunch I would have the lunch box from Ozu (salmon, rice, steamed kale, beans and squash). Then I’d probably have steak at the Knickerbocker for dinner and then around midnight or so, I would hit up IHOP and have plain buttermilk pancakes. Then I’m guessing I would have a coronary.

What would you last meal be?

I think I would be too nervous to eat.

What’s your drink?

There is a drink at Little Dom’s in Los Angeles called Penicillin and I’m convinced it’s the best cocktail in the world.

What’s the restaurant you just became obsessed with?

Ozu. I eat there incessantly.

How do you always start your day?

I always start my day with a big coffee from Joe Coffee.

Where do you travel for inspiration?

I like to go to Long Beach Island. It’s really pretty and cozy.

What won’t you travel without?

Lip balm and underwear.
