Grant Ellis: Away From The Office
Saturday’s Surf is one of my favorite spots in NYC. Shamefully cheesy, I’ll admit, but: the native Angelino in me just misses surf culture, even though I’m not a surfer by any means or not even part of that world (I lived too far inland to really get into it). But, in Southern California, it just surrounds you whether you like it or not. I like it. I miss it. Saturday’s Surf is like a mini-getaway into that world, albeit in a too-posh-New-York-City kind of way. But it gets the job done, for a fleeting moment. Bonus: their Crosby location has a secret backyard tucked away behind it. It’s an oasis of flowers and branches growing on the back of the building, and it’s the best daydream to sit in while sipping a cup of coffee.
