The Infatuation specializes in recommendations, so we're about to give you some.
If you enjoy funny Twitter accounts, and running commentary about The Bachelor and Bachelorette, you should be following Jenny Mollen (@jennyandteets).
If you are considering reading a funny book this summer, we highly recommend picking up a copy of Jenny's book, Live Fast Die Hot. It's a hilarious collection of essays about becoming a full-fledged adult (i.e. parents). Expect stories about inviting a drug dealer to Passover seder, about drinking ayahuasca in Peru, and about the funny sh*t that happens when you're married to Jason Biggs.
And one final suggestion? Check out Jenny's picks on places to eat in NYC - from where to take a coworker you want to sleep with to where to eat raw fish next to Mick Jagger.
When I'm eating late night, it's hard not to carb load. At Omen in Soho, however, I can inhale an entire plate of sashimi with a side of tuna tartare and go to bed guilt-free. This is also randomly a great place to bump into celebs who are trying to not get bumped into. Sightings have included: Jodie Foster, Sofia Coppola, and non other than Mick Jagger.
When you eat out TriBeCa, it's weird not to have a stroller. If you want a great restaurant that won't mind if your child becomes the exorcist and flails across the floor while you turn your head and order a second sangria, check out Estancia. It's open before, during, and after nap time.
Clandestine drinks for you and three people you will probably end up doing drugs with: ZZ's Clam bar. I love this place even without drugs. It's a small nondescript door on Thompson with a bouncer outside at all times. Inside, the room no bigger than a studio apartment, looks like a speak easy in Havana. The artisanal cocktails will blow your mind (get the Cardamon Buddah) as will the carefully curated selection of seafood including uni toast, trout roe, and oysters.
This East village gem, notorious for its assortment of homemade bone broths, is filled with unpretentious, responsibly-farmed food that will leave you feeling sated and skinny while simultaneously providing your partner with mouth-watering indulgences he is sure to post about on his food blog later that night. From the sunflower seed hummus and fresh daily gnocchi to the dark chocolate tasting board and tome of a wine list, this place has no misses. Kill yourself if you don't order the rotisserie chicken for two. (He can have the dark meat.)
I am a sushi snob from California and up until six weeks ago I would have told you that there was decent sushi in NYC ( 15 East, Sushi Zo, Sotto, sasabune, sushi Yasuda) but not great sushi! That was until I ate at Shuko. This is without a doubt the best fish in town. The dark moody ambience mixed with the the kind of Drake song you take your clothes off to, is a perfect venue for flipping the script on any relationship. Try to sit at the bar in front of Jimmy. Order the omakase, the house favorite junmai daiginjo, and the Drop The Mic add-on (uni, caviar, and toro with gold flakes). The bill for this kind of seduction is going to be steep so make sure you bring the company credit card.
I love following Jhomi Marchinko and her house keeper Lettie. Jhoni's page ranges from pics of her French bull dogs Pinni and Louise, to her fledgling battle w a life long McDonald's Coke addiction. My favorite posts however are updates on her intimate relationship with her housekeeper Lettie who she all but works for.
I'm obsessed with textiles and Jen has some of the greatest boho taste around. Her specialty is Moroccan rugs. Last year she posted a picture of a miniature pinscher which lead to my flying to Cincinnati to give her mine. I'm not even kidding. My husband's crazy min pin now lives my Moroccan wet dream with this woman in Ohio. Not sure which I follow for more, the decor or updates on my ex-step son.
My good friend, actor Tom Lenk recently started doing his #lenklookforless series where he recreates a red carpet look using only things he finds around his house. The results are truly hysterical.
My sister started this account about a year ago and basically what it is is someone sifting through all the junk at Forever 21 to find the rare great pieces that don't look cheap and will actually look great mixed into your wardrobe.
