Jewelry designer, Philip Crangi moved to New York 16 years ago and has been drawing inspiration from his local haunts ever since. Crangi shares his six fave influential New York spots with Refinery 29—from where he dines on steak and oysters (Keen's) to where he browses first editions and shops for flowers, all in one space (The Book Gallery) to his fave local bar (2A). Seems the inspiration from the bright lights and big city are working. Along with creating his eponymous and Giles & Brother lines, Crangi has also collaborated with sought after designers Vera Wang, Philip Lim and Jason Wu. Just another benefit from eating red meat.
