Since my day gig moved offices from Wall Street to Columbus Circle, one of the best perks — besides a close proximity to Central Park — is a huge increase in nearby lunch destinations. Just recently, I added a new place to my cache of favorites: Metro Marché, which just opened in March. I’ve already eaten there twice and I would advise you to forget any local deli, pizza place, or overhyped garbage like Sweet Green, because the food at Metro Marché is just insane.
Here’s another one of my favorite Dining By Design Installations from this year’s DIFFA event, which features carefully curated dining vignettes that raise awareness for individuals impacted by HIV/AIDS. Gensler New York’s 2019 design concept, titled You Are Beautiful, served as a celebratory reminder to all those individuals living with HIV/AIDS that they are Beautiful, both inside and out, they deserve enduring happiness, and, most importantly, they are not alone in their fight.

While I was out in California a couple of weeks ago, I received a text from my friend Diane (aka Diaaaahhhne!) back in NYC.

Good times. You can probably imagine then how much joy I experienced when I found this rad L.E.D. Dining Table on Evil Mad Scientist Dot Com.
Here is the story from the site:
“This is our dining table. We built it because we needed a new dining table, and I guess we’re just that kind of people. It has a frosted glass top lit by 448 multicolored LEDs that respond, in a complex and gentle fashion, to input generated by motion above the table while we eat.” How awesome is that? Detailed instructions on how to make your own version of the table can be found HERE. Bon appetite!
