Elle's creative director Joe Zee shares his food diary with New York Magazine. The man loves coffee. Saturday: "I returned home from a three-week trip late-night Friday. We were in Paris for ten days and I was in Milan before that. Saturday, I got up early to go get my haircut. I’ve been going to Neighborhood Barbers on East 9th Street for the last eighteen years. I always do this ritual. I get my hair cut and then I grab a coffee at Pick Me Up café next door. Coffee is my vice. I had a large coffee with skim milk and Splenda." [Grub St]
