We landed in New York on December 25th, after a great flight with Delta (we were barely sitting down, when we got beautiful Christmas carols from the crew, just magical!). We were in the middle of the shutdown period, so Luka that had never been to the States before, got blocked at the border for about 4 hours, while I happily strolled through. A bit tense after a long flight and waiting time, we arrived in our hotel: The Standard on High Line. The hotel is sublime and offers an impressive view on New York...if your room is located on the last few floors. I must say that our stay in this hotel was really nice, except for some little inconveniences with the not-so-nice staff and the quality of the services, which were below our expectations compared to the price of the room.
After chilling out a little bit and having unpacked our luggage, we dressed up for our romantic Christmas dinner! We took some time to select the restaurant where we were going to spend the evening, not only because we began searching a little late, but also because we really wanted that chic and traditional "Christmas feeling". We finally settled on "One if by land, two if by sea", a chic restaurant and festive restaurant that offered a French Christmas gourmet cuisine. Even though we were a little tired from the trip and jet-lag was kicking in, we had the most wonderful evening in this exceptional place and ate divinely well!
