When I think of the holiday season, I think of glam cush pieces and escapes that allow you to indulge in a bit of luxe fantasy. Here are a few that I wanted to share.

Unusual Hidden Gems
New York: Chez Josephine - This tribute to Josephine Baker offers fine dining, live music and a theatrical decor that's a nod to the 1930's Jazz era in Paris. Naturally, this genius creation of Josephine's son; Jean-Claude Baker, is located right on 42nd Street.
Paris: Joe Allen's - This was my haven on those rare occasions when I craved a "real cheeseburger" or barbeque during my semester in France.
Philadelphia: The Rose Tattoo - The exterior is very unassuming... My first impression was a biker bar. However, the interior surprised and won my heart ... The decor is stunningly beautiful. The wrought-iron details, terraced balconies and greenery remind me of dining in New Orleans as well as a particular antique shop/cafe that I stumbled upon one Saturday afternoon while browsing the enormous flea market of Marché aux Puces, in Paris.
