CA Creative’s Office Break Favorites

Written by on September 28, 2011 in Shop The Street, Shopping - 5 Comments

Carol Han and Alexandra Weiss are not only two very stylish New Yorkers, but they’re also beyond brilliant entrepreneurs! The dynamic duo teamed up to establish CA Creative, a creative agency focused on assisting fashionable brands (such as Equipment and Joie) with their online presence. We couldn’t wait to find out where these savvy workaholics take their much-needed lunch breaks.

On Alex: Alexander Wang sunglasses, T by Alexander Wang blazer & skirt, American Apparel t-shirt,  Surface to Air shoes, Celine bag, and Eddie Borgo necklace. On Carol: Jenni Kayne dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Chanel bag.

Gemma at The Bowery Hotel, 335 Bowery Street.

“A neighborhood staple with great Italian food and fantastic outdoor seating! Whenever we have a hankering for a quick Italian fix, we B-line to Gemma at the Bowery hotel. It’s the perfect place to split a pizza and bottle of wine with friends. The outisde seating section is definitely one of the best in the city! Also worth noting: the crowd here is very easy on the eyes (especially after a glass or two of Pinot)!”

Peels,  325 Bowery Street.

“From omeletes, to fish tacos, to bold roasts from La Colombe coffee, we can always count on Peels for a solid brunch with a range of regional American dishes. But our not-so-secret indulgence at this neighborhood joint? The homemade ice cream and sorbet! Our favorite flavors are the Milk Caramel Twig and Malt.”

Oak, 28 Bond Street.

“One of our favorite places to shop. They have great designers like Alexander Wang, Acne, and Rick Owens.”

The Smile, 26 Bond Street

“Simply put, The Smile on Bond Street puts a smile on our faces. Alex is addicted to the coffee, and Carol is a huge fan of the granola. Ryan Gosling has also been known to dine here — need we say more?”

    LOVE Peels … its such a fantastic space (light-filled and casual downstairs, vintage elegance upstairs) with amazing southern style food.

    Thanks for the spotlight on CA Creative. I adore Carol Han (she has an amazing blog as well … Milk & Mode.)
