What are Jay Swift’s favorite cities to visit?
New York and San Francisco, mostly because of the restaurants. I haven’t been to San Francisco in three or four years, and there’s already a bunch of new places I haven’t been yet. New York, last time we were there, we went to Gramercy Tavern. That’s a classic — a favorite. But there’s always a bunch of new places to go to.
My wife likes the shopping in New York, and I like Northern California for the outdoors and stuff, too. You can combine San Francisco and Napa into one trip, which is great. That’s convenient, especially if you’re a food or wine person. That’s a great vacation for a foodie or a wine enthusiast.
