The New Potato


Nanette Lepore

Your afternoon snack…

Dark chocolate bark with almonds or crispy sourdough pretzels from Union Square Market

What’s always in your fridge?

Half + half

What’s always in your bag?

Tata Harper face oil

Your go-to recipe for eating in…

Grandma Lepore’s Pasta Fagioli for a rustic country dinner, I also just rediscovered the Silver Palate Cookbook’s Chicken Marbella. It’s easy and delicious!

Favorite night of the week and why?

I love to throw a big dinner party on Saturdays during the summer at my beach house. We sit outside and enjoy the stars and the view overlooking the bay.

What’s a typical lunch in the showroom?

Salads from Macaron or Culture Espresso Bar.

What are your favorite New York restaurants?

Hudson Clearwater – You have to sit at the chef’s counter and flirt with the cute chefs.

Miss Lily’s – It’s like going to a private party and I love the way the waitresses put themselves together. It’s great fashion inspiration.

Bar Pitti - My all-time favorite and always a scene.

If you could have a dinner party with five people, living or dead, who would be there?

My mom, my aunt Sandra, my sister Michele, my daughter Violet, and my niece Natalia.
