Salon Peachy #SalonPeachy #WhomYouKnow : @JulienFarel 's Star Advanced Colorist #LilaCarlino of the #JulienFarel Restore Salon and Spa Creates Going Towards #Platinum #Highlights for #PeachyDeegan @ManhattanPeachy To Celebrate the #RoyalWedding #RoyalWedding2018

Lila Carlino and Peachy Deegan, wearing the colors of England
You can only smile this big and this sincerely when your hair is the right color.
English flag in case you aren't ready to see at at Windsor in the morning:
Mirror Mirror on the Wall, Lila Carlino is Royally the Best Colorist of them All!
Unluckily for the UK if you have to look good in a matter of hours at the Royal Wedding tomorrow, she is on this side of the pond right now but it is fortunate for New York, so book your appointment.
It's not who you know, it's WHOM YOU KNOW and we are glad to know Mover and Shakers Julien and Suelyn, and we have known them for years; we met them in March 2009! We were so thrilled to see Julien at our recent visit.
Julien as a Mover and Shaker:
and Suelyn, as a Mover and Shaker:
Of course, we met Lila through this brilliant couple! Vive la France - we are AMERICAN and we know the FRENCH helped us win the war (remember the Declaration of Independence in 1776?! And Lafayette? Guess who has a degree in American History) and so maybe the second language of America should be French- but also up with the English for now because the Royal Wedding is in a matter of hours and Peachy's haircolor is ready! Because we went to a French salon!

The moment you enter Julien Farel, you will feel like you are on a vacation to France in a beautifully relaxing atmosphere that is concurrently conducive to the highest level of gorgeous haircolor execution. As always, we consulted with Lila Carlino, star colorist and by title, Advanced Colorist, before she started painting years off our life we agreed upon a specific strategy. Lila is the ultimate professional.

"We're going to lighten Peachy's base color to what it faded to, which is a lighter brown. Then we're going to paint some more golden highlights in Peachy's hair for summer [with no red (which would equal Peachy's nightmare. Red is good for the English flag and Harry's natural haircolor. Red is not good for Peachy's haircolor because if you look at her clearly she and Harry do not have the same coloring.)] We're going to cover the silver with light brown 7N Inoa by L'Oreal and the lightener is Redken Flashlit."
We had to ask Lila what kind of hair she thought we'd see for the Royal Wedding.
"I think that Meghan will do soft waves with maybe a side part, very old Hollywood. I don't think she's going to wear a crown," comments Lila. "For those that wear hats, your hair should either be down or in a low bun, but very soft. Not too stiff."

Another hot item in Fashion is on this side of the pond, and we covered it a week ago Monday at The Met-Anna Wintour's latest and greatest: Heavenly Bodies. This is essentially Catholic Fashion. "Heavenly Bodies looks like they did a great job at The Met and it looks like it was so tastefully done. I can't wait to see it. From the impact of Anna Wintour to Donatella Versace (up with the Italians say Lila and Peachy!) the creative vision and impressive contribution from the Vatican make this exhibit a must-see including at The Cloisters. Now that I've seen Peachy's pictures I can't wait to visit." 

Lila Carlino was assisted by Natalia and Veronica, whom we were pleased to meet for the first time. In adding the highlights, foil was employed in the process to achieve the desired fabulous color. Hiro remained the hero of the blowdry, giving us a polished look to advance to the next review in the life of Peachy Deegan. We also like the fun music choice played at the perfect music volume in the background.

Meghan Markle, you don't know the haircolor you are missing by not coming to Park Avenue for your haircolor, but you can always hop on a plane!

Whom You Know Highly Recommends Julien Farel's Lila Carlino for Haircolor!

A Peachy's Pick Since 2012 and #BestSpanishRestaurant in #Manhattan, El Pote Espanol #ElPote #ElPoteEspanol Since 1977 by Enrique Torres and Jose Larino Spring 2018 #WhomYouKnow #PeachysPicks @ManhattanPeachy #PeachyDeegan PS #BESTGAZPACHO #BEST #GAZPACHO TOO!

 We only write about you for six years straight if we really love you.
And we do love El Pote and that's Enrique with Peachy below, host with the most, and Jose was in the kitchen since he's the Executive Chef.
We sincerely look forward to every visit, and we hate to leave but we know we're going back to remind you who will treat you like family when you arrive with your favorite wine, fresh bread and a genuine smile!
El Pote is the BEST Spanish restaurant in Manhattan, and probably North America also.
El Pote was last featured in the winter this year:
 Let's get right to the point.  It might be cold and rainy today, but the temperature is rising and a few weeks ago we had about four days in a row in the 80sF (not C if you are in Europe.  Peachy is American and sees the world in F).  El Pote has the best soups year round anyway but this time of year the gazpacho is an absolute must with its true authenticity.  First of all, Enrique and Jose are both from Galicia and are likely Peachy's Black Irish cousins.   See how the word Gaelic is kind of in Galicia?! They not only are the real deal with true authenticity but also time has shown they are winners as they have been open more than four decades straight in this location.  One reason why is THEIR GAZPACHO RULES.   
 It is fresh.
It has a satisfying crunch.
It is a classic for warmer weather.
Chunks of tomato, cucumber and celery perfectly cleanses your palate before your edible Spanish extravaganza. 
 
 Peachy loves shrimp.  Peachy loves garlic.  So Gambas al Ajillo has her name written all over it and we will caution you if you have her level of enthusiasm you will burn your tongue so hold your horses and sip your wine while it cools off.  Yes, the food is served hot here unlike lesser trendy venues that claim Spanish/Latin food but will soon be yesterday's news.  It's served in a welcoming little pot that is also hot so do not burn yourself.  When it cools, you will be graciously intoxicated by the sweet smell of garlic enveloping the lovely little delectable shrimp.  Victory. 
 The Stuffed mushrooms this visit were better than ever and we feel like El Pote keeps getting better.  We do not feel this everywhere and some drop from our coverage that we once covered.  In addition to shrimp, Peachy also is in love with crab due to her highly intrinsic crabby nature.  We mean that in the going to beach way.  Here you meet both shrimp and crabmeat stuffing mushrooms with the most amazing filling.  After they were physically gone magically vanishing in her stomach, the little morsels danced in her dreams like sugarplums in her head before Christmas.
 
 
 
 They are also pretty cute.
El Pote does a perfect green salad, and we always appreciate fresh vegetables cut well with the dressing on the side for the picky one here.  It's not too big and not too small and we love the onions in it. 
 
 
 Meet Tio Pepe!!! 
You have not truly lived until you have discovered this succulent wonder of the culinary world.
Here is the extraordinary veal before:
You can almost see the competition cowering in the corner.  It's a baby cow raised on milk only and it's American Veal that below is amazingly enhanced with flavorful mushrooms and sherry from Spain, confirming its culinary beauty and completing your carnivorous dreams.
You know you want this to be your dinner.
 
 
 Peachy is totally pro-carb and she adores the yellow spanish rice and potatoes that are perfectly crisp that you must try as sides.
 
 Our seafood entree of choice this trip was the Camarones en Salsa Verde.  No one does Salsa Verde like El Pote and you will revel in every enticing bite of the purity in olive oil, garlic, parsley and white wine.  Having shrimp as your appetizer is great but having it as your entree is even better.  Every succulent little beauty not only set a high aesthetic precedent for its superlative taste but also emblazoned in your memory why you must return to eat it again.
 Lemon pie is an entirely refreshing way to conclude your visit!
 
We love El Pote and if you love authentic Spanish food, you will too.
  

El Pote continues to be Highly Recommended!

After having all four of her legs amputated, Derrick built four prosthetic legs so Chi Chi can walk and run again. Derrick meets with Chi Chi to adjust her prosthetics and check her progress before flying to Botswana to fit Jabu with the world’s first elephant orthotic leg brace – which he hopes can save his life.
Izzy the Koala Whisperer

Crikey the koala was just a baby when he was found all alone and very sick on Australia’s Magnetic Island. But luckily for Crikey there’s a remarkable family there who spend their time rescuing koalas and rehabilitating them in their home so that they can eventually go back to the wild. Ali Bee, a veterinarian with Magnetic Island Koala Hospital, and her family are fighting to save Australia’s rapidly declining koala population. And she, her husband Tim, and their 10-year-old daughter Izzy, took Crikey in a year ago. Izzy became Crikey’s surrogate mother and helped nurse him back to health. Now, the Bee family is preparing for the emotionally difficult but important and inspiring task of releasing Crickey back to his natural habitat. Saying goodbye won’t be easy, for both Izzy and Crikey.
Pen and the Dogs of War

Sebastian Fluieras, a U.S. soldier deployed in Afghanistan, finds a litter of six puppies and wants to rescue them – but it’s against military rules for him to care for them on the base.

Pen and Hannah run Nowzad, Afghanistan’s first and only official animal sanctuary which houses over 150 animals rescued from the streets of Kabul.

Jan and Tim’s Greatest Show on Earth

Pepe the spider monkey has lived his entire life on a short chain in a Peruvian circus. At the same circus, six lions, including a female lion named Kiara and her two cubs, are kept in cages and forced to perform. Animal Defenders International (ADI), led by Jan Creamer and Tim Phillips, arrives in Peru to rescue the animals. Their organization has already helped ban the animal circus industry in over 40 countries – and they are determined for Pepe, Kiara and her cubs to live a life free of chains and cages.
Katherine’s Big Animal Eden

Katherine Connor and her five children run and live within a one-of-a-kind elephant sanctuary, Boon Lott Elephant Sanctuary, which rescues and rehabilitates elephants from Thailand’s tourism and logging industries. Katherine’s latest project is to rescue the majestic Pang Fai, an elephant who has spent her lifetime logging and in chains. She desperately wants to retire Pang Fai and bring her live out her life with other elephants and her family at the sanctuary, but her owner depends on Pang Fai for income and isn’t sure that he’s willing to give her up.
Estelle’s Favorite Chimp

Ponso lives alone on an island in the Ivory Coast and has been dubbed the loneliest chimp in the world. In 2015, chimpanzee expert Estelle Raballand met Ponso and the two now share an incredible bond. Estelle’s long-term goal is to set up a chimp sanctuary in the Ivory Coast where Ponso and other chimps can live freely with each other – but in the meantime, she’s determined to find a companion for Ponso. Estelle thinks Nikla, a chimp recently rescued, might be the perfect match.

Peachy Picks District Social #DistrictSocial @district37st #WhomYouKnow #PeachysPicks @ManhattanPeachy #PeachyDeegan

Owner Sean Marr, Leader of Culinary and Imbibing Excellence at the Extraordinary District Social, with some phenomenal Scotch he selected
Sean and Edgar, spectacular Chef de Cuisine!
Baked Cod, the embodiment of springtime!
You absolutely have to have the Flatbreads, especially the Shrimp!
Peachy is not picking a lot that is new.  After nine and a half years of doing this, not many newcomers can compete with the extraordinary levels of excellence reached by those that are on top of their game and have been for years and in some cases, generations (we're talking about you, Sal.)  In 2009, a lot of people did not have our vision of what the internet could do and there was no such thing as social media.  However, in 2018 there is so we do like when you have your act together in this realm as well and District Social nicely confirmed us for the digital age prior to our arrival:
Reservation confirmed
Name: Peachy Deegan
(212) 994-9599
Owner Sean Marr, a native of Glasgow, personally creates the cocktails and drinks menu and this is just as impressive as the edible menu!  It is superior to its competition and we started with the Red Sangria, top, which combines Silver Rum, Orange Liqueur and Fresh Juice to inaugurate your season of good weather in a glass, and an entirely refreshing Villa Maria Bubbly 2016, directly above, straight from New Zealand boasting Melon, Green Apple and Citrus notes.  Its understated bubbliness is evocative of the class and style exuded by District Social overall, especially because it is in the Fashion District.  District Social was first featured in June 2017:
This is its second feature.  
District Social is the newest of this team's endeavors, open since December 2015 and is owned by Sean Marr, Bennett Page (present at review with ears lowered!), Michael Geddes, Philip Smith and Aiden Stenson. 
On Whom You Know, District Tap House, also owned by this group, was originally featured:
and it graduated to Peachy's Picks:
Bedford Falls also earned an inaugural feature:
District Social has a bar and grill feel to it that's welcoming and just delicious.  Do not miss the croquettes: we tried both the Risotto Truffle Lebne, an essential bite, and Cauliflower Pistachio with parsley emulsion, a beautiful flavor as well.  They are just perfect to ignite your appetite and commence your gorgeous District Social experience, where 200 could be seated and should be at all times.  We like the traditional sequence of a meal followed at District Social and absolutely prefer this.  Corporate groups and social bunches both gather at District Social alike and is level of versatility is to be applauded.
The appetizer section is both deep and diverse and the Lamb Skewers luxuriate in a eggplant ragu and grape molasses, making them impossible to ignore.  District Social knows how to achieve phenomenal flavors without going overboard and being overly trendy and overdoing it.  
A hallmark of a restaurant that knows what it is doing is perfect octopus.  At District Social, it is brilliantly charred to tender succulence rarely achieved in a bar and grill atmosphere.  This was created by Chef de Cuisine Edgar and the nice char on the eight-legged wonder is accompanied by potato confit and chimichurri.
Peachy's favorite during this course was the Calamari Fritters that put many other calamari dishes to shame.  Six days a week seafood is delivered to District Social and it's evident in this dish in particular.  They are incredibly moist, really bringing out the flavor of the calamari with shredded kombu and joined by marinara and balsamic vinaigrette.  They are lightly breaded and perfectly crisp.  Extraordinary and essential, you must order these to start.
We are making an extra effort to be healthy especially as bathing suit season is practically (finally) upon us in New York, and District Social hits the high notes with their interesting and nutritious salads.  The Spinach Salad is super fresh and bursting with red peppers, kataifi, parmesan and shallots and you are in the drivers seat with the embellishments which are presented at your attention all lined up.  Peachy likes being in the drivers seat as you know from Cruising Peachy and likes to control some aspects of her eating.
Another creative salad is the Baby Beet Salad, which combines tender beets, walnuts, micro shiso, raisins and horseradish creme.  You'll revel in the classy crunchiness and contrasting textures.
Drumroll please.
Flatbreads rule at District Social.
Pork belly was suggested to us and is the top seller.
This will be clear to you at first bite.
The outrageously delicious oinker teams up with red onion, honey and manchego in ideal proportion, perfectly crisp.
The roasted mushroom is absolutely exquisite and does a dance with creative sunchoke puree, aged balsamic and gruyere.  
These combinations that District Social comes up with are new, exciting and will wake up your spring especially in this rainy weather.
Because she is a shrimp and because this is the most delicious combination according to her DNA and genetics, Peachy Deegan adored the Shrimp Flatbread the most.  She'd eat it every time a goal was scored during the Stanley Cup Playoffs if this was feasible.  If you haven't met Charred Scallion Pesto Gruyere with Shrimp yet, clearly this is what is missing from your life.
They will not last long!  Only share them with very good friends.
The sides are ridiculously amazing!  There are six choices and if you like Fried Yuca, a dish you don't see too often, you will be delighted with its combination with red onion and habanero aioli!
We love potatoes but you know that cauliflower is probably better for you.  Meet Cauliflower Gratin, enhanced beautifully by fontina. Charred Broccoli is a winner from the green vegetable group and it's made even better with garlic which we love, basil and mustard seed.
Presented authentically in cast iron, the Brussels Sprouts waltzing in pistachio and absolutely fabulous creme fraiche will make their mark in your edible memory as the way you want to eat your vegetables!
We adore seafood, and the Baked Cod sourced from the Atlantic is beautiful and delicious.  Its gorgeous seafood aura is enhanced by the lobster broth and nicely rounded out by parsnip puree and broccoli, and is a natural advocate of edible springtime.  District Social also has smashing Steel Head Trout:
which is gracefully arranged by satisfying Yukon Gold, and succulent sunchoke cream.  
Often, we wouldn't dream of ordering gnocchi at a non-Italian venue, but you can be confident of its incarnation at District Social.
This is the best gnocci we have seen outside of an Italian venue and the asparagus, broccolini and quail eggs exude an extraordinary air of sophistication.  And then, even better, charred onion broth is added:
Again, ideal delicious creativity is achieved without going overboard and overdoing it.  
The sit down dinner atmosphere is elevated casual at District Social and you'd be just as comfortable in a cocktail dress as you would jeans.  The taste is uber-upscale throughout the menu, and District Social said we were not done with their entree section, so we also tried the braised short rib extravaganza, which would be perfect on a rainy day about now, and is resting upon a fine cushion of polenta and sundried tomato ragout.  The grilled pork chops, a favorite of Sean's, completely outrank their competition confirming their singular excellence with peruvian corn and apricot glaze.
It would be a tragedy if you did not leave room for dessert, as they rock that course too at District Social, where we discovered zero weaknesses overall.  Green apple, PEACH (winning it a double feature in our PEACHY column!) and apricot sorbet trio concluded the District Social experience to perfection!  The flavor and consistency were superlative.
They also achieve a lovely Creme Brulee with fig compote, fromage blanc sorbet and parmesean manchego.
And we celebrated our sincere commitment to chocoholism with no plans for recovery with their decadent Chocolate Molten Cake with Chocolate Rum de Creme, Cocoa Nid Tuile and Caramelized Honey Ice Cream.
Peachy Picks District Social!
District Social is Highly Recommended by Whom You Know.
