Gay New York City

It is very easy to make expensive travel mistakes–so don’t do it.
This column is dedicated to helping the LGBT community travel better, smarter and fabulously. From quick getaways to big vacations, one thing to know is that careful planning can make the difference between a memory or a big mistake. Here are more insider trips that will make you the next NYC trip expert travel planner.

The biggest mistake in travel planning is picking a restaurant at the last minute. As important as where your rest your head and in which class of airline cabin that you fly in is the restaurant that you choose! The restaurant is your time to show your power as the ultimate “in-the-know” travel planner. Looking for ideas? To really impress, check out my two favorite recommendations.

Brunch at The Garden at the elegant, Art Deco Four Seasons NYC is not just a meal–it is a decadent, accessible New York experience. The seasonal, locally sourced menu takes visitors on a culinary tour of the best of New York. From Harlem’s authentic fried chicken and waffles to Brooklyn’s Warm Pastrami Tartine that you would swear your Bubbe would have made and the Four Season’s signature pigs in a blanket–a lemon ricotta pancake with chicken sausage. In honor of the recent Miss America pageant, it was fitting to try the Ms. Congeniality cocktail with Four Seasons-infused hibiscus vodka, limoncello and fresh watermelon.
