Petit Dejeuner: a breakfast series

for carbs, laughter and conversation

with our muses, the Baguettes.

Gia Seo

Where: Once Upon a Tart
What: meatless breakfast sandwich

Our Petit Dejeuner series kicks off with our girl crush, Gia Seo. We met with Gia at Once Upon A Tart and she ordered a meatless breakfast sandwich because they ran out of bacon. Gia Seo is a creative consultant and stylist in New York City with a insane career history and she’s just started! First off, she’s from Alaska and triple majored at NYU – one of a kind. She was a buyer at The Webster and now is a freelance creative and model. Have you seen her H&M campaign with Adwoa?


What’s your best breakfast memory?

“I don’t eat breakfast, but have you heard of the one cup diet?”
… We started talking about K POP shortly after this question!

Amrit Sidhu

Where: 11 Howard
What: fruit bowl

We got a hold of Amrit! She has a full time day job, while DJing parties at night! We sat down with the busy gal at 11 Howard, spoke about upcoming events, life as an Australian living in New York, and how Australians are taking over the New York food scene.


What’s your best breakfast memory?
“My best breakfast moment is a current one, it happens on the rare occasion that my boyfriend and I have a Sunday off together (doesn’t happen very often, but when we do) my favorite thing to do is to go into Brooklyn, and get pancakes together at 5 Leaves. “

Banna Gebremichel

Where: 11 Howard
What: coffee

We met with Banna for about 8 minutes until she had to run across the city for a quick meeting. Just two days before she moved to London! Banna is the co-founder of @glazednyc, a space to share their infatuation with vintage art, music, film and fashion through their accessories.


What’s your best breakfast memory?
“Going to Keren Eritrean Restaurant in DC and eating Shahan Ful. It’s owned by family friends so they had this photo of my grandfather’s soccer team from the 40’s framed on the wall. My Grandfather is one of my biggest inspirations. Keren is also named after the village in Eritrea my mom’s family is from!”

Matilda Lowther

Where:  Le Pain Quotidien
What: salmon tartine + turmeric latte

Matilda walked into Le Pain Quotidien like New York is her catwalk. Impressive beauty, she’s also the perfect amount of cynical and quirky Brit we all need a good dose of in the morning. We spoke a lot about the outdoors, the beautiful English countryside, hiking and Matilda’s transition from modeling to photography. We can’t wait to see what she gets into next.


What’s your best breakfast memory?
“Full on English Breakfast at Glastonbury at 3am on a hill.. Summer 2017!”

Anaa Saber

Where:  Banter
What: pink beet hummus + tea

We caught up with Anaa Saber at Banter and discussed her life over some bright pink beet hummus. She’s a freelance writer and blogger for her very own, Our Second Skin. She is the perfect girl for the Darka bag: feminine streetwear afficionado.


What’s your best breakfast memory?
“4 years ago, I taught English in Turkey. The first day in the village, I was greeted with a breakfast unlike any other. The spread was lavish; tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, all kinds of homemade bread, jams, and pastries. But what made the memory this special was the hospitality, the kindness and compassion foreign teachers had greeted me with, I felt right at place.. It was a moment of unity, a breakfast I’ll never forget.”

Janis’ Mom

Where:  The Standard
What: soft boiled eggs + potatoes

“My mom is the ultimate source of inspiration, the perfect #baguette. She built her art business from the ground up, after she graduated from engineering school. She comes see me in New York every year for the Armory art fair and I’m always more impressed but how she is welcomed by the art scene, across the Atlantic. I’m so grateful to have such an inspiration and role model to look up to.”


What’s your best breakfast memory?
“I was in the desert in Israel with artist/friend Herve DiRosa. We woke up after a night under the stars and the bedouins delighted us with mint tea, crepes… Right here in the middle of the desert. It was so surprising, the best sharing experience I have ever had.”
