My favorite New York restaurants right now is ABC Cocina (38 East 19th Street, NYC; +1 212 475 5829). The food is out of this world all the time. The waitstaff is so warm and friendly. And going there always fells like I went "out" even if I just popped in for dinner.
I also love Nir Mesika's Timna (109 St Marks Pl, NYC; +1 646 964 5181). The warm and cozy vibe is only matched by the incredible menu of updated Mediterranean dishes.
And I wish I lived right next door to Lilia in Willamsburg (567 Union Ave, Brooklyn; +1 718 576 3095). I would eat there at least 3 times a week, it's that good.

My all-time favorite restaurant, though, is The Wolseley in London (160 Piccadilly, St. James's, London W1J 9EB, UK; +44 20 7499 6996). The space is something out of the bank that the father in Mary Poppins might have worked at ... and the herring is incredible.
The BabyNes Formula Dispenser is something I can't live without right now. It's a superfun and super useful baby bottle preparation device modeled on Keurig coffee machines complete with baby formula pods and makes the formula at a precise temperature. There's even foam.
I also buy baby water which is sold in these enormous jugs at CVS or Duane Reade for like, nothing. The water is purified and has flouride and tastes super delicious. It's meant for babies to drink with formula, but I love it just the same. Delicious water without any marketing upsell.
I love love love Canyon Ranch's recipe for lime coffee cake. It sounds like it's going to be bland because it's a spa concoction, but it's so not. It's easy and delicious.
