travelgirl recommends: Public restaurant; DermaNew


Call it Kiwi fusion. Tucked away on Elizabeth Street in New York's SoHo district, Public restaurant constantly surprises with an eclectic menu based on the imagination of the restaurant's New Zealander chef. Try the Roast New Zealand Venison Loin or the Pan Seared Tasmanian Sea Trout. On any given day there is some new creation to savor and like the clientele, the awards have been quick to gather. The entire menu mixes unique herb and spice combinations with meats, fish and even vegetables. While it is known for its selection of wines, Public's drink menu also shows a flair for creativity. Indeed, drink it all in while enjoying the minimalist decor with rustic brick walls and candlelight.

We know what crossing time zones and dry airplanes do to our skin. Since no outfit can make us feel better about ourselves than fresh, clean, sexy skin, nothing could be finer than taking microdermabrasion with you on the fly. You can do that thanks to DermaNew's easy-to-pack Facial Rejuvenation System. It does wonders for travel-fatigued skin. A handy do-it-yourself travel kit contains a battery-operated scrubber that exfoliates your skin with a thick, gritty cream. Rather than blast skin clean, DermaNew's micro-sized crystals are massaged on and washed off, leaving you with glowing skin in just two minutes. At $70, it's an affordable travel companion.
