Samantha Brown’s New York

Travel Channel’s Samantha Brown relates part of her travel philosophy to me over breakfast at Perch Café near her home in Park Slope, Brooklyn.  “People cultivate the soul of a city.  Spend time with them and the place comes to life in a different way than just checking off the top things to do,” she says.

While Samantha has checked off over ten years with the Travel Channel, she is now exploring other avenues, in addition to hosting, that have her staying closer to home.  She just sent a book off to publishers (“It’s basically about my tenets of travel and how I do it,”) and is selling out an eponymous croc-style luggage line on HSN.

I can download any of her shows on iTunes and instantly travel thousands of miles with her.  But Samantha is also a New York homebody, splitting her time between the city and a home in the Hudson Valley she bought with her husband a few years ago. “We live in the city but it’s amazing, that pull to be agrarian. It has the farmhouse, the front porch, the whole feeling of family and setting down roots.”

Like all of us, she has her go-to spots near home. “What I think Brooklyn has is great mom-and-pop shops trying to make it in the neighborhood. And when you support them, you support the whole community.”

Annie Fitzsimmons: Where do you love to eat in Brooklyn?

Samantha Brown: “There’s a fantastic Korean restaurant called Moim that we love, off of 7th Avenue.

I love Moutarde, a great French bistro with this amazing shaved fennel salad with blue cheese and walnuts.  Al Di La is great when you can get in but you can also go to the little bar, which has the same menu.
