The Ultimate Day: Boston
How Fresh co-founder Lev Glazman lives it up in Beantown.
As a visionary responsible for the exceptional products and impeccable packaging of Fresh, co-founder Lev Glazman brings a higher-than-normal taste level to any room. So of course his stylish influence can be felt throughout Boston, a city he's called home for over 20 years, and that has served as the backdrop for the evolution of his business — a small soap company co-founded with his wife turned global mega-brand. For Glazman, a perfect day in the historic New England city would kick off like nearly any other. "I go to Equinox almost every morning," he says. "I love my private pilates class." Here, Glazman describes how else he would spend a day in The Hub:
"My favorite breakfast is at Metropolis Café. I usually meet my daughters there. It's very cozy and the food is great."
Institute of Contemporary Art
"I love to spend the day at ICA. Not only do I love the exhibits, but I also love the building, especially the stairs outside that face the harbor. The view is magical. I usually bring a coffee and hang out there with friends or my daughters."
Machine Age furniture store
"Machine Age is one of my favorite stores. It's not far from my house, and I love it because I collect mid-century furniture. It's full of special, one-of-a-kind pieces, like vintage posters or light fixtures. It's truly has the best collections of mid-century art, furniture and objects in the country."
International Poster Gallery
"I'm a collector of vintage posters, and International Poster Gallery seems to carry unlimited options from the '30s through the '70s. It's almost endless."
Kendall Square Movie Theater
"I like Kendall Square Movie Theater in Cambridge, which plays foreign movies and independent films. There's always something good playing."
"For dinner, I like Oishi Sushi in the South End, which I consider the best sushi in town. Or, I like Uni, another drop-dead amazing Japanese spot headed by Chef Ken Oringer."
