David Yurman

A straightforward, wear-every-day bangle. Thousands of jewelry designers have attempted it, but few have mastered the concept. Now David Yurman has entered the game with the new Sculpted Cable bracelet. It’s an homage to the house’s signature cable motif, but it’s been flattened so that the pattern resembles a wave. It’s the kind of piece that was intended to be worn every day, and given that it comes in rose gold, yellow gold, and white goldwith or without diamonds—there are plenty of options to play with.

Bar Gelateria del Molo

Sardinia is one of the world’s five blue zones, featuring a higher than average percentage of 100-year-olds, whom scientists are always studying, asking, How? Why? We’re no scientists, but we think the secret of a long life on this island just might have to do with Bar Gelateria del Molo, the best gelato spot between Amalfi and the Côte d’Azur. What’s more life-extending and stress-reducing than sitting at one of their little tables, right on the snug slip, having an affogato and watching the world slide by (and, best of all, not hearing a speck of English). Unlike other towns down the coast, which are flush with flashy yacht slobs, Porto Rotondo is largely locals-only, a place for the second-home set from Milan and Rome. Bar Gelateria del Molo has been around since 1950, so if there’s a blue-zone category for cafés, it’s a shoo-in. ( —Michael Hainey



Even if you don’t know a lot about Judaism, you’ve probably heard that Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, is a pretty big deal. Every Friday, family and friends gather around the table for a feast of food, community, song, and a lot of red wine. So, to share the love and holiness of this weekly holiday, esteemed author of the best-selling cookbook Sababa (and Chrissy Teigen’s collaborator on Cravings) Adeena Sussman returns to shelves this week with Shabbat: Recipes and Rituals from My Table to Yours. Featuring a range of Ashkenazi- and Mizrahi-inspired dishes such as Bubbe’s extra-crispy potato kugel and Moroccan carrot salad, Sussman’s newest cookbook is sure to bring the joy of Shabbat to your next dinner party on any night of the week.

Salon 21

Gertrude Stein’s Parisian salon has found its modern incarnation in a SoHo loft. The newly opened Salon 21 aims to provide art experiences for the contemporary consumer, through exhibitions, artist panels, trunk shows, and workshops, as well as dinner and cocktail parties. Curated by Salon21’s founder, art consultant and interior designer Alex Bass, the inaugural show features 21 (go figure) up-and-coming artists, including Colette Lavette and Frankie Thorp, who bring a freshness to classic art-history themes. The show runs through September 30, by appointment only, and Bass’s beautifully created space at 52 Greene Street is not to be missed as it breaks into the downtown art scene. ( —Gracie Wiener



In Norse mythology, the secret to eternal youth was found in Idun’s golden apples. Much to my dismay, said magic apples are not real. However, Icelandic beauty brand Bioeffect has created a serum that gives the goddess a run for her money. The EGF Power Serum came highly recommended by aesthetician Elizabeth Hand after my complaints of skin dehydration, fine lines, and hyper-pigmentation. Her sole comment was “Just wait and see.” Three months, $219, and dozens of comments from strangers about my skin’s glow later, my sole comment is “Wow.” The serum’s star ingredient is plant-based epidermal growth factor (E.G.F.), an age-combating protein naturally occurring in skin. The E.G.F. is derived from barley grown in a hydroponic greenhouse, nestled in a lava field, using geothermal energy and pure Icelandic water—a tranquil image I like to evoke as I pat a few drops on my face morning and night.

Oh, dear. It seems that we have contracted a case of Aperol fatigue. (Can you really blame us?) But we’re not quite prepared to subsist entirely on Ghia. Fortunately, a new aperitivo option has presented itself in the form of Doladira, a low-sugar, chemical-free, rhubarb-derived spirit that is named after the Dolomites and is just as good on the rocks as it is in a spritz. The brainchild of Meredith Erickson, the author of Alpine Cooking, and Richard Betts, a founder of Komos tequila, it includes notes of elderflower, bitter orange, plum, and rosemary, tinged with just enough salinity to dethrone even our beloved Campari. It’s best served during sunset in a Carlo Moretti glass, garnished with a slice of orange and a few close friends. ($39.96, —Ashley Baker
