Jennifer Fisher

Jewelry Designer

| Tribeca

Dressed in a black turtleneck and divine Céline skirt, it’s clear that Jennifer Fisher has an appreciation for sleek, elevated designs, and yet, it extends well beyond her wardrobe. Over on Fifth Avenue, her new treasure trove-like flagship is curated just as decorously with exposed brick walls, dangling filament bulbs and crisp, potted orchids setting the scene. Gilded JF designs line the walls, like vertebrae-inspired bangles, chain-link rings and thousands of pavé diamond charms for which her namesake collection is perhaps best known. Still, glistening in its’ case, it was the designer’s latest knot choker that immediately caught our eye— modern, dynamic and elegant… not unlike Fisher, herself. Here, she sits down with CITIPHILE to reveal her little black book on NYC.

NEIGHBORHOOD STANDBY: I’m always at Mr. Chow (MAP IT, BOOK IT, x). My favorite dish is the special tofu salad they make for me (it’s not on the menu). I also love Marc Forgione (MAP IT, BOOK IT, x) and can’t resist their chicken for two—  trust me, it’s a must.

COFFEE OR TEA: La Colombe (MAP IT, x) because it’s strong and made in small batches.

ALL-TIME FAVORITE RESTAURANT: If I’m REALLY eating, my all-time favorite is Bar Pitti (MAP IT, x). I always order the Rigatoni Pitti with a side of spinach, meatballs and the artichokes when they are in season.

BEST BRUNCH: I love to cook so my family and I enjoy having brunch together in our house. Jack’s Wife Freda (MAP ITx) is great too when I’m looking to go out.

HEALTHY STAPLE: Liquiteria (MAP IT, x). I order a curry chicken salad and a “Grasshopper” juice or the gluten-free pb-j-and-banana sandwich.

GUILTY PLEASURE: Mexican food! The Esquela Vieja tacos at El Toro Blanco (MAP IT, BOOK IT, x) are amazing. My other go-to is the chocolate cake from Strip House (MAP IT, BOOK IT, x). I have it every year on my birthday– it’s my cake!

COCKTAIL DE LA NUIT: Mr. Chow‘s lychee martini! They adjust the taste for me so it’s not too sweet.

DATE NIGHT STANDBY: We love small places. Blue Ribbon Bakery (*Location now closed) has been a standby since we started dating years ago; it’s so cozy and personal.

KID-FRIENDLY STAPLE: I know it sounds insane, but Mr. Chow in Tribeca! They take the kids in the back to help make the noodles.

NY’S BEST-KEPT SECRET: Smith & Mills (MAP IT, x) is an amazing spot for intimate drinks. I used to live on North Moore and we went there all the time. Also, the manicure and pedicures at i-Plaza (MAP IT, x) on Greenwich and North Moore– ask for Jane!

FIRST THING I MISS WHEN I’M AWAY: The energy. Everywhere else seems so slow!

REGULAR AT: Okay here we go— Pat Wexler (MAP IT, x). I am 43 years old and she has saved my face. No one would ever admit this and there are many who go… just sayin’!

CLOSET CHECK: My personal style is clean with a slight edge. My two ultimate favorite places to shop are Barneys (MAP IT, x) and Net-A-Porter. I also love Fivestory (MAP IT, x), which is owned by my friend, Claire Distenfeld. They have the greatest selection of one-of-a-kind, unique pieces. One of the most beloved items in my closet that I’ve bought is my Dries Van Noten swirl coat– it’s my obsession for fall.

ACCESSORIES PICK: In NY, you can find inspiration just walking down the street. I find myself constantly inspired by the women I meet and their requests for unique, one-of-a-kind pieces to complete their look. Lately, I’ve been playing with minimal lines that work best with all of the prints and colors that are trending right now. Personally, I am never without my signature charm necklace; it works with every outfit.

BEST HOST/HOSTESS GIFTS: I love the main floor of ABC Home (MAP IT, x) or anything at Global Table (MAP IT, x). My favorite items to gift are the custom candles I collaborated with Le Feu de L’Eau on. They smell amazing and are very chic on a coffee table or desk.

BEAUTY BLACK BOOK: I go to Joanna Vargas (MAP IT, x) for skincare. I live for her! Everyone at Marie Robinson (MAP IT, x) is wonderful. Marie (x) colors my hair and Jessica Gillin (x) gives me the best haircut.

FIT PICK: Lately, I have not been doing much unfortunately! However, when I do work out, I love to train one-on-one at Body By Simone (MAP IT, x) with Gabby.

ULTIMATE NY MOMENT: Yes! This summer my husband and I had just left The Little Owl in the West Village (MAP IT) and were walking down a small, one-way street. Suddenly a man ran past us and seconds later 10 NYPD cars came charging in from all directions with their guns out. They had blocked off the entire street— it was like a Law & Order episode! My husband is the only one who didn’t fall to the ground and actually stood to watch all of the officers take the guy down! Seconds after the guy was handcuffed, it was business as usual with everyone walking by barely looking twice at what had happened around them. Only in NY! CP
