Cherry Bombe’s SoHo Love List

If you’re looking for a buzzy neighborhood that offers world-class shopping, popular food & drink, and lots of culture, you can’t beat SoHo. Named for its location—South of Houston Street—SoHo has gone through various incarnations over the decades, from industrial hub to artist enclave to designated historic district.

The people watching is unparalleled, and the architecture is impressive, too, as Soho boasts the world’s most impressive collection of cast-iron buildings. Art world aficionados can visit the Judd Foundation, The Leslie-Lohman Museum (dedicated to the work of LGBTQIA+ artists), or even the MoMA Design Store.

Fans of female fashion designers should make a beeline for the boutiques of Clare V., Sézane, Loeffler Randall, Rachel Comey, and Isabel Marant, while beauty girls can swing by Glossier, Diptyque, and the U.S.’s very first Sephora.

Balthazar is 27 years old and still going strong, thanks to the menu of French classics and great service. If the weather is nice, sit outside for some of the best people-watching in town. If you want something more grab-and-go, like ham & butter on a baguette, pop into the Balthazar Bakery next door.


227 Mott Street



When Model & entrepreneur Enly Tammela opened this tiny Mott Street shop to feature her signature coffee drinks and hand-poured candles, she had no idea it would become a viral sensation. Stop by for the Tiramisu Latte or the Strawberry Fields with matcha and fresh fruit!

Chefs Clare de Boer and Jess Shadbolt, alums of The River Cafe in London, along with partner/beverage director Annie Shi, offer seasonality and creativity at this neighborhood institution. The menu, which changes daily, is inspired by the cuisines of Southern France and Italy.
