If there is one thing I have learned while living in New York City, it's that convenience is EVERYTHING. The days are longer and you're constantly on the go here. Especially when it comes to meals. Hence, why there are so many food trucks in the city. My favorite is the coffee and bagel carts. Perfect for the days when you're literally running across the street to get to the office on time. So it's fitting that there is now something even more convenient that has recently opened up at Columbus Circle. Turnstyle is an underground dinning and shopping experience. Located under Columbus Circle at the corner of 57th/58th Street & 8th Avenue. 

I recently visited the new underground shops & eats and was impressed with all it has to offer. Imagine a row of pop-up style restaurants and retail spaces with easy access for on the go shopping and dinning. I was immediately drawn to the vibrant and colorful atmosphere. It was also very clean and more spacious than I anticipated it to be. I recognized a few places right away but was also excited to see some unfamiliar ones. Everything from DOUGHNUTTERY, BYSUZETTE, GASTRONOMIE 491 and PRESSED JUICERY to name a few. 

And for the days you are in need of a gift for that special someone or on your way to a friend's dinner party. Don't show up empty handed! There are several great shops to pick up a great gift. I especially love PAPYRUS and LUSH. There is also this great boutique like shop called FAB. They literally have something for everyone. If you need a sugar fix, there is even a DYLAN'S CANDY BARAnd if you've just had a long day and not sure if your roommate drank the last of the wine at home. Luckily, you can grab a bottle at KIT's UNDERGROUND before getting on the subway. 

For a full list of shops and eats go to
