A Model’s Favorite Things

Model Hilary Rhoda (Estée Lauder, Victoria’s Secret) on where she’s dining (yes, she eats) and what she’s drinking these days. Beware: Burgers and fries are on the menu.



What wines are you into these days?
My mom is a Sauvignon Blanc drinker, and I’m following her lead; I love Sancerre. I’ve also discovered Soave.

Favorite cocktail?
I’m happy with good vodka mixed with fresh citrus juice and St-Germain. 

Favorite restaurants in New York?
I love Lure Fish Bar in Soho. There’s always a good vibe and plenty of good wines. For Italian, I like Rubirosa in Nolita, while everything at Market Table in the West Village is delicious. Lafayette and Café Gitane are also on my short list.

Do you have a favorite wine region to visit?
I’ve done photo shoots in Napa Valley, but I’m partial to Long Island. I love hanging out at Channing Daughters; I love their blended whites.

What’s your go-to guilty pleasure grub?
Shake Shack burgers are impossible for me to resist.

What’s your room-service order?
A club sandwich with fries; there’s nothing better after a long flight.

Favorite city outside of the U.S.?
I’ve fallen in love with Barcelona; if anyone asks me where we should do a shoot, I’m suggesting Barcelona. I also love Acapulco; it has come a long way since the 1970s, or so I’m told.

Favorite hotel?
The Alvear Palace in Buenos Aires. It’s formal but fabulous. I love its high tea.
