The Space: Gramercy Park Hotel
With a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline, the Gramercy Park Hotel's terrace set the perfect scene for our downtown dinner party.
The Menu: Mediterranean inspired
We kept it light for a summery night: think a salad of bitter greens with pecorino, followed by seared sea bass and braised red cabbage. The pièce de résistance? A dessert trio featuring a dark chocolate cupcake, white chocolate blondie and berry tart.
The Setting: Fresh and sophisticated
White peonies and ranunculus in silver vases lined our tables with chic, black–and–white place cards. Topping it off: each guest received a special illustration from Blair Breitenstein—AKA @blairz—featuring a portrait of themselves wearing a look from Jonathan's Pre–Fall collection.
The Drink: The Simkarita
A perfect blend of bright lime and smooth tequila. Here's how to mix one up yourself:
- 1oz Saint Germain
- 1oz Patron Silver
- 1oz grapefruit juice
- Twist of lime
- Top with soda
The Guest List: Fashion's chicest insiders
We sipped champagne and swooned over the pre–fall collection with stylish friends like DJ May Kwok, Portia Doubleday and model–of–the–moment Nina Agdal.
