Running into Marcus Samuelsson

Tomorrow is our daughter’s birthday, and after racking my brain what to get the girl who seems to have it all, we decided to make a plan to do something fun together after our exhaustive August show schedule. One restaurant that was on my mind in particular was Red Rooster, in Harlam. After spending the day running around the garment center, I stopped into Whole Foods on Houston St., and the owner/chef himself was there for a book signing! So I bought his New York Times bestseller, and he signed it “Happy Birthday Sonia, see you in Harlam, Marcus”. The perfect birthday card!

An I absolutely LOVE his sense of color and style!
