Manhattan is Still Cold – Soup’s On!

Soup is the perfect meal for harsh winter weather. We’re still facing some brutally cold weather in New York City this weekend, and we’re sure plenty of you want to warm up yourselves! That’s why when we found this fantastic soup recipe by our friends at MarthaStewart.com we knew we had to share it. This Manhattan Clam Chowder recipe is hearty and bold, perfect for waiting out the (hopefully!) end of this wintery weather. No need to bundle up the whole bunch of you to go to a restaurant when you’ve got this hot recipe up your sleeve.

A Renaissance Romance

Temple St. Clair's Bridal Collection at Michael C. Fina

“What I love most about Temple St. Clair is that each piece tells a story, whether about history, nature, astrology, or humanity. When you purchase a piece of jewelry from Michael C. Fina, it is helping you create a special moment in your own history.  What better way to commemorate a moment than with a piece that not only conveys beauty, but also deep meaning?”

~Steven Fina

Temple St. Clair’s romantic designs were introduced at Michael C. Fina in February of 2011.  Since then, her distinctive pieces have marked the special moments in the lives of many of our brides and couples.  Temple’s designs are for the woman who embraces the modern world, but who still has a true passion and appreciation for the art, culture, and history of our ancient one.

Temple St. Clair‘s Bridal Collection can be found exclusively in Manhattan at Michael C. Fina.
