IL VALENTINO OSTERIA LAUNCHING INTIMATE EATERY

Image
Renowned Il Valentino is launching a more intimate eatery on the Upper East Side with a new name to match- Il Valentino Osteria.


The original location of Il Valentino was in the Sutton Hotel, where the elegant spot was a frequent hangout of celebrities, business impresarios, and political figures and utilized for UN events. When the hotel decided to make a change, Restauranteur Mirso Lekic plotted out to find a location that is close to the original, and found that in its new location, on the corner of 59th Street on 1st Avenue.


Lekic with the help of Dan Sehic of C3D Architecture, undertook a massive renovation of the space to make sure that the restaurant was a beautiful, casual place to enjoy that fused together traditional and modern design elements to create an elegant dining room. Each tabletop and each of the chairs designed by Franco Lucic of LMF Group are crafted from Mango Wood while the table and chair legs are a contrasting metal design. Along the walls is a line of ba…

**** ST NICKS ALLIANCE PROPERTY MANAGER HAYDEE CORDERO INDICTED ON MONEY LAUNDERING FOR DRUG OPERATION **** 




I am not going to get into a huge thing here. As most of you know I am in a lawsuit against St Nicks Alliance for breaking ADA Laws, Housing laws and abusing me and my son and I were forced to move. You can read more about it here in the New York Daily News.


St Nicks Alliance defended their tenants who spent 2 and a half years outside my window yelling move white boys move, we are getting the faggots out and allowed us to live with mice and rats. It never ended. Their tenants jumped my son in the lobby, they tried to break into our apartment and they robbed us from our ground floor window. The more we complained to St Nicks Alliance, all the way up the ladder, the more abuse we got. Never ended. 

I complained about drug dealers and drug deals in my building. They did nothing. I complained to Haydee Cordero who was building manager about the drugs. When she did nothing I complain…

Eva Mendes



Eva Mendes has been designing clothes for her New York & Company line for several seasons now, but one recent major life event has since shifted her perspective on what women want to wear: becoming a mother.

E! News caught up with proud new mama to baby Esmeralda and chatted with Mendes about much her new September collection means to her.

"I think that being a mom now myself, I love dressing…not so much like a mom but there is a sexiness in kind of giving into the mom thing and that I'm dressing as an example for a little girl. Like, I'm someone's example!"

The brunette beauty added, "That's exciting for me and I make clothes that I think are really beautiful for moms, for all women, but certainly for moms."

And when asked how she feels about seeing more diversity on the runways at fashion weeks across the globe, Mendes dished, "I don't think it's one or the other. I think as long as there is diversity and everyone is rep…
