Discovering Downtown Princeton

Princeton is not 'just' a university town, it is a busy hub of families, children, academics and designers.
I took a leisurely stroll with the Mr and my camera to give a small taste of what my downtown has to offer.
My Blog is predominantly a design Blog, but I could not resist plugging my new home town, Princeton.

Located in the heart of Palmer Square, the Nassau Inn is a landmark of downtown Princeton with its old world charm and good food.

We were greeted warmly by the owner of The Corkscrew Wine Shop who's french accent made me feel a little nostalgia, for my maman et ma grandmere who are french.
The wine selection is fantastic and the staff welcoming.

Mediterra Restaurant & Taverna is run by the lovely Julie Acuff, this upscale eatery offers delights from the 21 countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. 
Now through December 1, 2001 Mediterra is inviting locals and visitors alike to the TAPAS FOR TOYS event where you are treated to tapas in exchange for unwrapped toys in support of the ROWAN TOWERS 10TH ANNIVERSARY HOLIDAY EVENT.
For more information and directions go to:

No town is complete without SHOPPING! Palmer Square is alive with great designer stores and Kate Spade NY leads the pack!

For the chocolate lover Thomas Sweet at 29 Palmer Square  is you definitive choice and for the best ice cream for miles visit The Bent Spoon also on Palmer Square but be ready to stand in line!
