Couple Up: Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson

image

Adam Brody is a married man now, but long before he shacked up with Leighton Meester, he dated her near-twin, Rachel Bilson. IRL and on the teevee! Here’s what their Seventeen-worthy relationship looked like. —erica

Adam Brody: Super sunglasses fit for a music festival, a red-and-black tee from Saturdays, and navy Supergas.

Rachel Bilson: Rolled-up Denim Refinery jean shorts, a sleeveless Americana shirt from Chaser, and a leather-cord necklace by Vanessa Mooney.

More couples of yesteryear right over here.

I’ve been eyeballing this Saturdays hat for a couple of weeks now, and you wanna know why? I think it’s JUST THE THING for days when the cold rain is threatening to seriously wreck your morning (and your hair). —erica

Working It: The 13 Best NYC Spots for Taking a Meeting (If You Ask Us)

When we first started Of a Kind, we spent our days hauling around NYC from meeting to meeting, dragging our laptops, wearing down our heels, and inquiring after wireless codes. Ya know: BE THE HUSTLE. But even now that we have an office to call home, we still spend plenty of days hopping around town, and these are the spots we head to again and again. They’re convenient and reliable and good—below, organized by occasion. —erica

Breakfast

imagePeels: “This just feels so civilized. Things to note: They have free seltzer water (nice!), and while the biscuit sandwiches are delicious, they kind of just make you wanna go back to bed. My vote’s for the muesli instead.” —erica
(325 Bowery)

Cafe Gitane: “It’s just a fact of (my) life: The avocado toast you make at home will never be as good as what they serve up here. It’s worth fighting the scene-y crowd for. (But it’s also worth going on the later side to avoid said crowd.)” —claire
(242 Mott St.)

Maialino: “If you’re feeling fancy…or someone else is paying. As one of our favorite writers, Molly Young, noted, ‘Mark-up on eggs: 5,000 percent.’” —erica
(2 Lexington Ave.)

Lunch

imageMulberry & Vine: “Healthy food! Which is shockingly hard to find in this city. And the counter-service sitch means you get to avoid a convo about who’s gonna pay.” —erica
(73 Warren St.)

Tarallucci E Vino: “The best and worst thing about this place are its proximity to Union Square. Second best is the homemade pasta. The staff gets that nearly everybody present is doing a business lunch, so they’re pretty on top of their service game.” —claire
(15 E. 18th St.)

Sushi Yasuda: “This is the one thing that gets us excited to go to Midtown. Best sushi in NYC. We’re not going to debate this with you. This also means that you gotta make a reservation!” —erica
(204 E. 43rd St.)

Coffee

imageTBSP: “For the better part of 2011 and 2012, TBSP was basically our conference room—we worked a few doors down (in an office dark enough to qualify as a lair) and went here, oh, every damn day.” —erica
(17 W. 20th St.)

Brooklyn Roasting Company (A.K.A. BroRoCo): “When you have to trek to BK to meet with your developers, plan on doing it here and ordering a coconut green tea on ice. They recently remodeled, so there are plenty of tables to be had indoors and out.” —claire
(25 Jay St.)

Saturdays: “This is actually a surf shop with a coffee bar, but the real bonus Jonas here is that they have a pretty big garden in the back. It’s the perfect meeting spot for days when it’s way too nice to be inside.” —claire
(31 Crosby St.)

Takahachi Bakery: “Never a zoo, despite all the Japanese deliciousness to be had. You should be warned that once you try the matcha crepe with red bean cream, you won’t stop thinking about it.” —erica
(25 Murray St.)

After-Work

imageTacombi: “This is probably our #1 go-to for drink meetings. Micheladas and guacamole in a totally laid-back atmosphere just makes working after-hours so much easier. On my to-try list: their spiked horchata.” —claire
(267 Elizabeth St.)

Weather Up: “We go here for drinks meetings in which we hope to actually get things accomplished. It’s very adult—they serve classic and sophisticated cocktails with a brief but delicious snack menu. The soft pretzels with beer cheese and crudite with dip are both top-notch.” —claire
(159 Duane St.)

Shigure: “It has everything we look for in a drink spot—lots of tables, good snacks, and a waitstaff that is pleasant but not in-your-face—with no crowd. Plus, we’re big sake fans, and so is Shigure.” —erica
(277 Church St.)
