Join me for a walk in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan to visit several galleries:
At the first few galleries, I will share with you information I’ve learned about what’s on view and at the last gallery, Littlejohn Contemporary, the representative there will be available to talk with us about Kate Breakey’s work.
*I have adjusted the order so that the Yayoi Kusama show will be the last on our list, as the wait time there is something all may not have time for. More information here: David Zwirner Gallery: Plan your visit

BRUNCH AT CALLE DAO
We have 12:00 pm reservations at Calle Dao, a restaurant in the heart of Chelsea that features Cuban-Chinese cuisine.
From the website: calledao.com
Calle Dão is designed to pay homage to Havana’s once-thriving El Barrio Chino (Chinatown). Known as the largest such community in Latin America, El Barrio Chino occupied 44 square blocks of real estate in the late 1870s. As the Cuban and Chinese cultures mixed, a unique fusion of cuisine emerged. Today, El Barrio Chino occupies a small section of the narrow Calle Cuchillo – Knife Street – from which Calle Dão takes its name.
The cuisine, cocktails and décor of Calle Dão strive to transport our guests back to El Barrio Chino when it was at the height of its existence. Calle Dão has created mouthwatering dishes that seamlessly blend Cuban staples with Asian flavors. The cocktails, created by Mixologist Joy Daniel, also meld the old world with the new using historic names for libations with modern ingredients. Calle Dáo’s décor, the creation of its owner Marco Britti (Favela Cubana), is reminiscent of a sultry, old-world Havana restaurant with white-washed walls, distressed wood and whirring ceiling fans. Chinese artwork, spices and bright colors provide the accents.
Step into a bygone era and enjoy a modern dining experience at Calle Dão.
