Warm Up With New York: Sebastian Oppenheim

Sebastian Warm Up With

With beautifully mild fall days a thing of the past, it’s the perfect time to bundle up and enjoy the toasty indoor activities that New York City prides itself on. Let’s ‘Warm up with New York’ and rediscover some indoor hidden gems to get us through the winter months ahead.

CORE’s Sebastian Oppenheim shares his cozy foodie find to beat the winter chill.

As a native New Yorker, I know firsthand the rich offerings of the city, from museums of the Upper East Side to the galleries of Chelsea and SoHo, from attending on and off Broadway shows to Koreatown karaoke bars. But amidst the general hustle and bustle of the city, one of the things I enjoy most, especially during the cold winter months, is to take advantage of the thousands of restaurants the city has to offer and connect with friends. There is something to be said about dining leisurely with family and friends. It is a tradition born at home for me and a ritual that I continued throughout my college years in South Carolina (a great foodie town) and now back in New York City.

Mediterranean food is hands down in the top three types of cuisine I love. Finding the perfect spot has only taken me about 23 years of my life. Bustan, nestled in the center of the block on Amsterdam Avenue between 84 and 85 Streets, tops my list.  Nearly every table is full, even on a Tuesday night at 8:30pm. The ambiance and service is always warm and welcoming, but it’s the food that keeps me coming back. Everything on the menu from the hummus and house made flat breads to the lamb terracotta are cooked and seasoned to perfection. The quality of food and the warmth of the wait staff gives you the sense of being with family. And as it is so inviting, it is one of my favorite places to invite friends.



My Favorite Room: Todd Lewin

16 February, 2016 posted by: CORE


‘My Favorite Room’ takes a look at our favorite peoples’ most cherished places and spaces. Featuring a mixture of hotspots and hidden gems, we hope to remind just how special one room can really be.

Moving to a bigger space always affords us the option to have more rooms to love. With his new-found ability to move as he pleases, it should come as no surprise that Todd Lewin‘s favorite room is always on the go.

What is your favorite room? My car.

Why is it your favorite room? After 8 years of living in SoHo, I moved to Williamsburg and immediately got a car. I didn’t think I’d end up spending so much time in the car, but being able to drive to the grocery store, pick up coffee or even a friend is something that I enjoy a lot. I feel like I’m in the suburbs which brings me some comfort. I also love driving around and making or taking calls on my Bluetooth. It’s become my mobile office.

What do you like to do most in this room? I’m a better listener on speakerphone so I try and schedule calls with clients when I know I’ll be in my car.

What is one unique or distinctive feature from this room? It’s constantly moving.

In one word, how would you describe this room? Game-changing.
