One of my favorite ways to spend a late weekend afternoon.
Shopping along the quieter streets of Soho and then stopping at Mondrian SoHo just before the sun sets.
We come here mainly because the dining room of Imperial No. Nine is gorgeous, a sort of Alice in Wonderland meets sophisticated greenhouse complete with chandeliers.
The food is not great, but you can’t do wrong with fresh oysters, a pot of tea…
…or perhaps the sparkling and (very) spicy ginger seltzer. And plenty of good conversation.
