TOMS, the company that made its mark in 2006 with a series of colorful (and very comfortable) shoes modeled after Argentinian gaucho footwear, will not stop expanding. In 2011, it introduced a line of sunglasses following the same “buy one give one” model that gave it such a high profile …

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I cannot fully agree with that, being a writer and all, although sometimes images do speak for themselves. What follows is a photo journal of a recent meal at Atera, a high-end restaurant in Tribeca basement that has become one of …
