Inside Steven Alan

An Afternoon with Pennyweight

  • Our friend Elise Joseph, the voice behind the blog Pennyweight, was in town recently. Since she was kind enough to share her favorite places in her hometown of Nashville with us, we decided to show her around our neighborhood on Franklin Street in Tribeca. Here’s her recap of our afternoon:

    A couple of years ago, I created a mini guide to Nashville for the Steven Alan Journal, so I was excited to let the SA team return the favor, this time in their charming Tribeca neighborhood. It was my first trip back to New York in over a year, so I was anxious to try out some new spots.


    First stop was lunch at Smith & Mills, whose tiny interior was warm and inviting. Make sure you visit the washroom – it’s so cute!


    I’ve been meaning to recreate this Warm Lentil & Squash Salad at home – french lentils, butternut squash, kale, pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds and just a touch of sherry vinaigrette. Yum. Make sure you get the Avocado Toast, too.


    The outside of Smith & Mills is unassuming and beautiful – the restaurant is tucked away in an old carriage house on a quiet, cobblestone street.


    I’m pretty sure I died and went to heaven when I stepped foot into the Steven Alan Home Shop… everything was complete perfection. Still kicking myself for not picking up some ceramics I was eyeing.


    I am an eyeglass junkie and have been wearing them since I was in second grade, so it was fun to be able to try on some frames from the new Steven Alan Optical collection.


    I took this Kimono Denim Shirt Jacket home with me. I love its Japanese design!


    This was another top contender, and my birthday is coming up so I just may have to treat myself. The Crossover Denim Jumpsuit will be perfect for lazy, spring days.


    I loved getting to peek into All Good Things: a unique flower shop, market and restaurant in the neighborhood. I’ve heard that the restaurant serves a fancy $100 prix fixe menu, which of course I’d love to try on my next visit!

    Many thanks to Elise for a fun afternoon!
