Peanut butter, our trusty childhood friend! Peanut-butter sandwiches made by mom. Peanut butter on toast after school. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups on Halloween. We were so basic with how we ate it! But, hey, that's the sweet thing about being a kid—you don't have to be sophisticated. But we're grown now. So let us tell you about where to take in satisfying peanut-butter desserts in the city like the polished New Yorkers you are. And about the healthier alternative to those Reese's cups that John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have been polishing off together like...PB&J.

In 2014, few artists had the kind of success that Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic saw. In fact, few artists will ever see that kind of success, but the ambitious yet humble Mestrovic only sees his exhibitions as stepping stones onto bigger things. Installations at the Tribeca Grand, EDITION Miami, and the MoMA Armory Event, exhibitions at SCOPE New York and Art Basel, and even collaborations with Public School, Rodarte, and the CFDA were just a few of those stones, which have prompted immense interest in his unique paint style. During his brief return home to New York after a stay in Miami and before he jets off to the TRANOI show in Paris and then SXSW, we caught up with the prolific artist to talk about his influences, fashion, and the future of art.

All you need to do is poke your head through the entrance of Tacombi’s Nolita location, veiled with a heavy embroidered cloth, to see how many people are scrambling to get a slice of the Mexican beach life. Festooned with threads of light and multicolored murals, the entire room revolves around the original Tacombi truck that once traveled up and down the shores of Yucatan selling fresh tacos from its windows. Now anchored in this airy warehouse on Elizabeth Street, the truck remains the most important element of the room, its doors and windows thrown open to cook and serve flavorful, uniquely drafted tacos to Manhattan’s hungry diners. Tacombi is the brainchild of Mexican-born Dario Wolos who, along with head chef Oscar Hernadez and manager Luis Berenbau, seeks to prove how light, fresh and diverse true Mexican cooking can be. We sat down with Oscar and Luis, munching market fish tacos, lime-drenched ceviche and corn esquites as they sung praises of Mexico, 9 am pork belly, and why the taco is taking over.
It is only David and Phillipe Blond that can draw such a crowd of diverse creatures to their namesake show. The royalty of New York were seated front and center, behind them only an army of tastemakers, drag queens, and television personalities. Even Paris Hilton, wearing a turquoise heart corset made her way backstage to pay her dues. The only thing that stood out more than the personalities was the collection. From 18th century symbolism to modern English rebellion, their inspiration runs the gambit. We had a few minutes to chat with the duo backstage about their latest inventions.
