PARIS IN JUNE
June is a natural wine bar with a
moody, Parisian feel. It has booths,
and a long list of biodynamic wines,
with staff favourites flagged daily.
If I come to eat, I pick the mushroom
tempura, and walnut olive oil cake.
I love that they use seasonal produce,
straight from organic farms.
If you want a great view at
dusk, head to Pier 6 at
Brooklyn Bridge Park and
stroll along Brooklyn
The gorgeous view of
Manhattan as the
sun goes down is
one of the best.

outside of Queens, so this place is really something.

right – the food is very hot! My highlights are the
stingray curry, fried turmeric sea bream, and
