If you haven’t treated yourself to a meal (or pastries, oh, the pastries!) at Second Bar + Kitchen in Austin yet, then stop what you are doing. This downtown fixture driven by critically acclaimed executive chef David Bull offers a lovely and eclectic mix of small and large plates, with evolving menus for brunch, lunch, dinner and dessert.
The dynamic city of Asbury Park, N. J., is set to open a new hotel in spring 2016—the first opening in the area in more than 50 years.
The Asbury, a product of the real-estate company iStar, combines the Victorian-era history of the era with its vibrant social culture.
The project is a collaboration between David Bowd, known for creating the Salt Hotels brand, and Anda Andrei, iStar’s creative lead for the Asbury Park redevelopment project and the former design director for the Ian Schrager Company.
