What is your favorite local restaurant?
My favorite local restaurant is Chestnut Cafe in Nutley! I actually work at the cafe three days a week but even if I didn’t work there, I would eat there every day! The food is seriously a must-try.
What is your favorite local boutique?
Once Upon a Skirt in Clifton is definitely a favorite for me, they always have the cutest clothes.
What is your favorite salon or spa?
Tease is the salon I work at in Bloomfield so of course, it’s my favorite! Everyone is very friendly and inviting…it feels like home!
Where is your favorite local place for home decor?
Target! They always have what I’m looking for, and their locations are super convenient around New Jersey.
Where is your favorite local daytime hangout?
My friends and I spend a lot of time at our local Starbucks in Nutley!
What is your favorite New Jersey downtown district?
Montclair because with its cool shops and funky restaurants, it feels like Manhattan.
How has COVID-19 affected your business?
Due to COVID-19, many March and April events have been canceled. My job is very hands-on and it is hard to work from home.
