Fitness is important to us, both in and out of Manhattan, especially during the summertime when we are heading to the beach and want to look good in our bathing suits.  For fitness trainer, model and men’s physique competitor Evan Levy, it is more than just looking good… its a lifestyle for him that he is now turning into a full fledged business with his new line of T-Shirts that he has recently developed with the name Driven Lifestyle Company.

I have to be honest in that we here at Manhattan Digest don’t go to Brooklyn too often, although there have been exceptions (Talde in Park Slope for instance).  Another great exception, which we just discovered the other night, is Alice’s Arbor, which is located right off the A/C Franklin Avenue stops at 549 Classon Avenue.  They are yet another highlight of how great farm-to-table can really be, as they excel in modern American cuisine done in a fun and friendly setting.

Living in and around Manhattan can be incredibly stressful, especially on the body.  It is good that at least once a month we indulge ourselves in something that will be us feel better physically and spiritually.  Spa Castle, in College Point, Queens, is the perfect example of the “Treat Yo Self” mentality in that it provides an incredible amount of amenities to enjoy and recharge your batteries in doing so.

Pergola is a great example of a fantastic restaurant to head to that isn’t too far away from areas of Manhattan that are truly popular like Times Square and Penn Station for instance.  The bilevel bistro is located in the fabulous flower district, where its location once was an actual flower shop that has now transformed into a Mediterranean feast of sorts for thousands of followers to enjoy.  This past Thursday, they threw a big party to celebrate some new things they have planned for the summer that include Petal Pops, Picnic Crates, and more!
