What’s so great about the Main Line: It has delectable restaurants, terrific schools, colleges and universities, and the Main Line Chamber of Commerce.
Why Main Liners make the best neighbors: They show their support through civic, social, charitable and educational events.
Her favorite town: Wayne. It’s much more suburban than where I grew up in New York. It’s small and quaint, with lots of little shops. I love that there are a few big stores like the Gap, but there are also tremendous boutiques. I grew up visiting family here, so Wayne holds some of my best childhood memories.
Coolest local events: My favorites are the Haverford Music Festival and the Wayne Jazz & Food Festival.
The last thing she bought: School uniforms for Rosemont School of the Holy Child for my two children. Patrick is 16, and Mariel is 8.
The last thing she ate that she loved: The Hazelnut Diamond from Aux Petits Delices in Wayne. Patrick Gauthron has brought the finest French chocolates to the Main Line.
Drive or the R5? I drive locally, but I’m a train rider at heart. I won’t drive into Philly.
Secret spot: I love Chanticleer because it’s quiet; everything about it is serene. I also frequent the Edgewood Cafe in Havertown. It’s a small BYOB, and it’s just phenomenal; they have fantastic music.
Most exciting local rumors from the past year: The opening of the Ardmore Music Hall and the reopening of Georges’ as Peppercorn.
If I didn’t live here, I’d live in: Manhattan. I’d have to go back to my New York City roots.
