#YourNewPotato

Okay potatoheads, a new column and Instagram party has officially begun and it’s called #yournewpotato. Each week, we’ll be picking our favorite Instagram to post on our site AND Instagram, that answers the question “What’s your new potato?” Just make sure to tag us @thenewpotato and use the hashtag #yournewpotato.

From Hamilton the musical to poke bowls and fur loafers, your new potato can be absolutely anything – and we want to know what it is! This week’s winner is Sivan Bachar, the Social Media Manager for 12 Chairs Café

On who she is…

My name is Sivan Bachar and I moved to New York six years ago from Israel to experience the New York life. I work in business development at a digital advertising company in Midtown while finishing up my degree in advertising and marketing communications at FIT. I’ve managed social media for 12 Chairs Café for the past year. This is where I get to express my creativity and surround myself with passionate people.

On her ideal food day… 

Breakfast: A latte and avocado toast at Two Hands Café, which is right below my apartment.

Lunch: My favorite lunch while on-the-go at school or at the office is the rice bowl at Kobeyaki.

Dinner: I love trying new spots, so my ideal dinner would be a new restaurant downtown; the next place I would love to try is Pasquale Jones on Mulberry Street.

On beauty from the inside out…

My week can easily get crazy busy trying to multi-task between all my responsibilities. To keep myself sane I make sure to experience all New York has to offer culturally and hit up museums, Broadway shows or movie screenings. My workout is probably when I explore the city by foot on the weekends and my diet would be not drinking alcohol.

On why this photo “your new potato”…

This photo is my new potato because I find it to be so deliciously attractive. I love running the social media for 12 Chairs Café where I get to meet people who are as passionate as I am for exciting, beautiful dishes and design. These two desserts are my favorite – the 12 Chairs blintzes and cheesecake; happiness on a plate 🙂
