Today is traditionally when the shops break even and therefore, “go into the black”, hence the rather sinister name “Black Friday”. In reality this is a bit like Boxing Day at home, i.e., when all of the sales start. There are absolutely mad deals to be had if you don’t mind getting up at 4am to start your shopping. O and I had no intention of doing any of this, so instead took advantage of the long weekend and had a stroll around the lovely Nolita. After looking in various cool boutiques we had a tasty lunch at the newly opened and super stylish Tartinery. It’s basically a modern version of a traditional French Bistro and serves yummy soups, salads and the main event – Tartines (open sandwiches). With it’s very cool interior, service with a smile and delicious food, this is a must lunchtime visit.
