My Favorite Things

When it comes to Manhattan’s see-and-be-seen spots, few names are more known than that of Kyle Hotchkiss Carone, the young restaurateur and man-about-town behind American Bar, Saint Theo’s, the revived Lambs Club, and, most recently, Holiday Bar, where martinis and seafood are served in a decadent, 80s-inspired setting (mirrored walls, tubular banquettes, and all). Here, Hotchkiss Carone shares his must-haves, from crystal glassware to the vintage cookbook that inspires him most

Serax x Ann Demeulemeester


Handmade Grace Glassware, Set of 4

“We use a lot of the Ann Demeulemeester x Serax glassware at Holiday Bar. For my home, I love the short tumblers for wine (sacrilege, I know).”



Sea Island Solid T-Shirt

“This is the staple of all staples. No matter what the outfit is, there’s always a white Sunspel T-shirt underneath.”

Dr. Lara Devgan


Hyaluronic Serum

“I once explained to Dr. Devgan that I am extremely lazy about skin care, so she had to pick just one product for me to use every day. This is what she chose. Now, if I don’t have it on my face, I’m convinced everyone is looking at my dry skin.”

Wolfgang Puck


Wolfgang Puck Cookbook: Recipes from Spago, Chinois and Points East and West

“I don’t love to cook, but I love cookbooks. Since I am not a chef, it’s where a lot of the ideas come from for new restaurant concepts. Wolfgang Puck is my favorite. This book—which incorporates recipes from Spago, Chinois on Main, and more—is perfectly dated in the best way.”

Ettore Sottsass for Memphis Milano


Lettuce White Ceramic Dinner Plate

“I collect a lot of Memphis Milano designs. These Ettore Sottsass plates are great to hang for a subtle hit of postmodernism.”

Isabel Marant


Jack Five-Pocket Jeans

“I am always trying new denim in search of the right cut, especially for someone my height (6’6!). I finally landed on this pair from Isabel Marant.”

Studio Nicholson


Orange Fisherman’s Sweater

“I love an oversized knit. I buy the biggest size they make and wear it like a blanket.”

Alex Katz

Price Upon Request

Pas de Deux I

“This suite of Alex Katz prints from the early 90s depicts iconic New York art couples. We have all five of them hanging at Holiday Bar.”

Adidas x Wales Bonner


Track Pants

“I try to avoid too many external meetings during the day, which allows me to have a daytime uniform comprised of Adidas track pants and a hoodie. The Wales Bonner x Adidas collaboration is a favorite.”



Orange Zero, Pack of 20

“I hate water. This is what I drink all day long.”
