Fashion model Mylène Kooij currently lives in New York City and shares her best model hotspots in the big apple on Modellist-ID. This week it’s delicious and healthy juices at Joe and the Juice.
Joe and the Juice is one of my favorite spots to hang out in NYC! The store in Spring Street is particularly easy to reach because it is the first thing you see when you walk out of the metro stop at Spring Street. If the weather is nice you can walk over to Prince Street and there you can also drink a juice or coffee on the terrace. The two stores are in the middle of Soho among all the other nice bars and restaurants and it’s one of the best area’s when you want to go shopping. It also has a third store in Bryant Park, which is situated very centrally in Midtown Manhattan.
The stores are beautiful and have very nice and comfy furniture. This is ideal if you want to relax between castings on one of the sofas, but when you have little time you can also take your juice to go. Unfortunately when you’re a model you probably spend time alone quite often. But here the music and the atmosphere are great and that makes it a nice place to go also when you‘re coming alone. Also, Joe and the Juice offers good-working WIFI but above all it is a nice place to meet other young people.
The main reason why I recommend visiting Joe and the Juice is because the juices are very tasty and also healthy. The juices contain very few calories but many vitamins, which is ideal for models or anyone else who wants to work on a healthy and good-looking body. It is important to know the right places to pick up your juices because unfortunately at many places the juices contain lots of sugar or other junk has been added.
WARNING if you go here, you’ll probably come back for a coffee or a juice every day! On the other hand, the menu offers plenty of choice so if this is the case you can try a different juice every time.
– Prince of green (spinach, pineapple and apple)
– Perfect balance (broccoli, ginger, carrot, fennel and lemon)
– Stress down (strawberry, apple and ginger)
Last but not least!! A great fun fact is that only good-looking boys are working at Joe and the Juice to make you a healthy and delicious juice!
