Those great Stumptown coffee roastin' guys from Portland opened up shop right off the lobby of New York's beautiful Ace Hotel earlier this month. Porter and I got to tour the hotel and the still-under-construction Stumptown space a few weeks back...before the marble and all the tchotchkes (which Erie Basin owner Russell Whitmore helped pick out). It's great lookin'...and the java's amazing. Be sure to check out The New York Times' review.
(Details on Porter's outfit: Her new, beloved leather tote from the wonderful Bray brothers at BillyKirk; Anthropologie turtleneck, YSL belt, Ralph Lauren cowboy skirt (mine from 7th grade), Jil Sander flats).
