A 640-hp Nürburgring-eating CTS-V isn’t a natural descendant of the house of Cadillac. The king of cush and the caesar of geezers was once none too concerned with steering fidelity, roll gradients, lateral grip, and the like. These were figuratively and literally foreign concepts, as the modern luxury car—as sharp at clipping an apex as it is comfortable on the highway—is largely a European conceit.

November is always the time of year where I see the change. Where we leave the fun time of the summer and we go into this serious work ethic of the fall. One of the things I like about the fall is the changing of the trees. There is no better place in New York to see the leaves change than in a one bedroom park view suite at the Trump International Hotel overlooking Central Park. It lets you know that summer is over and we are back to business.
November is a great month for us because it will be the launch of MLevel Concierge in New York. To have LVMH as our host on putting our company out there is a dream come true. Louis Vuitton has always been my favorite brand because of their attention to detail and the level at which the brand stands for. Mark your calendars November 12th is our birthday.
One of the things I found in Tribeca, which is really cool, is the new Cast Iron House condominium. It is developed by Knightsbridge Properties and one of the most fabulous architects Shigeru Ban.

Just to give you an idea, when it is nice outside you can take the walls off of your 9,000 sqft apartment and feel like you are sitting on the beach. Truly Spectacular!
One of my favorite places to go book shopping is at Assouline. I found a really special Assouline book store at the Mark Hotel.

The one thing about the fall is we get to travel to amazing events around the world. One of the upcoming events will be the Abu Dhabi Formula One race at the Yas Marina. I love flying on Eithad Airlines and I hope to get the opportunity to book the residence suite which is their new first class apartment in the sky.
Something else really cool this month that I like is my new Amazon Echo. Alexa may know a lot, but she will never be a MLevel Concierge rep. I definitely recommend this amazing product for around the house.
I hope everyone gets an early jumpstart on the holidays. I already got my gift, thank you LVMH. See you on the 12th.

Before he opened Cosme on East 21st Street in October, the chef Enrique Olvera reversed the process. He already had a pretty good handle on the cuisine of Mexico, having grown up and now owning a flock of restaurants there, including the globally acclaimed Pujol. Mr. Olvera’s research trips were to Manhattan instead. He studied its dining rooms, its menus, its cocktails and its customers. He was clearly taking notes, because he shows an uncannily state-of-the-art instinct for what New Yorkers want when they go out for dinner. Cosme is cool, but isn’t trend-chasing. It’s crowded and lively, but isn’t painfully loud. It’s comfortable, but isn’t coddling.
