Her favorite area of Brooklyn is Williamsburg because it places a strong emphasis on creativity and individual expression. Her favorite restaurant is Maison Premiere on Bedford Avenue, for its great atmosphere and interior design and it has a wonderful cocktail bar and great oysters. The interior design in a restaurant is just as important to Adrienne as the food they serve. She also sees Sunset Park, Crown Heights and Bushwick as hot spots because they retain the old Brooklyn neighborhood vibe that’s attracting the younger crowd and artists. Adrienne recommends The Women I Wanted to Be by Diane von Furstenberg and Ladies Who Launch by Victoria Colligan and Beth Schoenfeldt as inspirational business books.
