Carnet’s datebook of events covers art, restaurant, and luxury store openings, the best dining in each city, and more.
San Francisco is full of exciting museum exhibits this summer! “Going Modern: American Design in the 1920s” is on display at the Walt Disney Family Museum in Presidio. “Gilded Lives: New York Fashion and Design, 1880–1914” is a preview on display at the de Young Museum (before heading to New York City August 20th), while The Vatican Ethnological Missionary Museums loaned the de Young more than 80,000 objects from indigenous cultures combining form and function as “materialization of spirituality.”
Enjoying a meal seated on the terrace overlooking the East River at Tom Colicchio’s Riverpark is on Carnet’s wishlist of NYC dining experiences. The John Dory Oyster Bar is another of Carnet’s favorites. There’s certainly never a lack of luxury shopping options in LA or NYC. In fact, options just increased with the opening of Halston Heritage stores in both cities.
If you’re thinking about heading to Los Angeles, James Turrell’s incredible work will be on display at LACMA and the Kayne Griffin Corcoran Gallery. For dining, acclaimed chefs Ludo Lefebvre, Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo (Animal, Son of a Gun) have teamed up to create the new restaurant Trois Mec. The Little Door on Third Street is another of Carnet’s Los Angeles favorites, where local and seasonal ingredients are prepared with Mediterranean technique.
