In October, during our limited freedom to mingle and meet people, I met Clare Price for an extended brunch in Notting Hill! We were so happy to be able to connect after a very tiresome summer. We still felt the looming anxiety on what was next with the pandemic but we also felt grateful that [...]
Coffee bars at hotels are a special place especially in New York.
