Sure, on a good day, I try to pack my lunch. But with my new part-time gig in Soho, I can’t seem to resist a midday bite at Dean & Deluca. For the most part, I keep it simple — I go straight for the soup line in the back. That way, I’m in and out, spending approximately $7 for a large cup. However, today, my normally calculated visit was interrupted by a Golden Star vendor offering me a sample taste of his White Jasmine Sparkling Tea. “It’s light and refreshing,” he said. “A non-alcoholic drink that pairs well with others.” Oops, impulse buy!
