The New Potato


Rebecca Taylor

Fashion Designer

It’s getting colder out, and while we love the brisk entry of fall, sometimes we like to pretend its still summer. We shot designer Rebecca Taylor at Tacombi for a bit of a beach-in-Mexico throwback. After all, we’re definitely a site for all seasons and who better than to throwback with then one of America’s most whimsical designers? Yeah, that’s what we thought.

Describe your ideal food day…

Poached eggs on multi-grain toast, vegetables and grilled chicken from Dig Inn Market, and a chicken burger and mashed potatoes from Purbird in Brooklyn. Or if I feel like a treat – dinner at Tacombi.

What would your last meal be?

Chicken with Champagne Sauce and Potatoes Dauphinoise.

How do you start your day on a good note?

With decaf coffee and some yogurt from Chobani.

What are some of your healthy routines?

As far as exercise, I like finding different, fun ways to stay in shape. If my time wasn’t so limited, I’d try out a new dance class every week! Right now, when time allows, I’ve been taking swing classes.

What catches your eye on every menu?

Fried chicken

What are your favorite places to travel to?

I can never get enough of Paris. I also love going to Turks and Caicos to relax with my family.

What won’t you travel without?

A cashmere wrap or blanket.
