After spending eight years in New York City, I have come to know some really great places over the years. Finn and I are both so lucky to live in arguably one of the best neighborhoods in the city. We want to share some of our favorite (DOG FRIENDLY!) picks south of Houston! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or want any additional tips. Whether you are visiting or are a New Yorker yourself, we are happy to chat further!
