Whether it’s a good movie or a great restaurant, we think that there is nothing better than getting a solid recommendation from a friend. That’s why all of us here at eXO got together to share our recent favorites – from an alternative ice cream shop to an epic sober dance party. Ahead, we’re dishing on them!

Food: I sodi in the West Village...best dorade and spinach in town. Cabbage salad and pasta with asparagus. Yay! Share all for two. One order, babes.
Movies: Ex Machina. Re-rent it. Amazing –– and supposedly Song to Song is a winner.
Music: Digging the soundtrack to Big Little Lies.
Books: The Sellout by Paul Beatty.
Inspiration: - Big smiles and fast cars…or just the wind blowing in the trees...please.
Travel: Anyplace, anytime...but planning Italy! Going to Durham, the hottest town in North Carolina according to Vogue...for a family visit.
Other: Non-mentionables ;)
Amina AlTai, VP of Marketiing
Food: As a Nutrition coach, I'm always looking for the latest and greatest food trends that pack a punch. Right now I'm really into functional beverages like Rebbl’s organic blends, Torii Lab’s Awake tonic or Dirty Lemon Water.
Music/Podcasts: The Richard Simmons podcast, obvi.
Travel: Free People Just launched wellness travel escapes which I'm super into.
Other: Events like Club Soda and The Big Quiet.
Julia McVeigh, Social Media Manager
Food - Just ate at abcv for the first time and it really does live up to the hype -- the breakfast there is unreal; definitely recommend the persimmon bowl with macadamia nut cream
Movies - Ummm... Beauty and the Beast? Seriously, I actually loved that movie. Otherwise, I am a creature of comfort – I subside on old favorites like Clueless, Casablanca, the first two Godfathers and Breakfast at Tiffany's.
Music/Podcasts: Just finished S-Town, a weird, engrossing, disturbing and touching look at one man's life in rural Alabama. It starts out as a "whodunit" and turns into so much more.
Books: Finally reading Tana French's Dublin series, starting with In The Woods. It's basically a psychological murder mystery/thriller great. Also, slowly making my way through Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run, which is actually incredibly well-written (he is a lyricist after all).
Inspiration: Recently purchased Linda McCartney's book of photographs and could look at it all day, everyday. She was supremely talented and, obviously, she captured such seminal moments in culture and music.
Travel: I'm dying to go to the south of France ASAP. Stay tuned...
Clarke Bowling, Digital Marketing Manager
Food: Summer is almost here, so basically pretty much ready for any and all ice cream. One of my favorite spots is Ice and Vice on the Lower East Side…their Tea Dance flavor is just so good.
Movies: Absolutely loved Colossal and Gifted. Can’t wait for the high tension of The Book of Henry and the melodrama of Everything, Everything.
Music/Podcasts: Training for the Brooklyn Half means listening to lots and lots of podcasts. As of late, I’m all into How I Built This, Who? Weekly, and TED Radio Hour.
Books: I finished Robert Caro’s 1,100+ page Power Broker over the winter. I haven’t had a chance to start putting together my summer reading list.
Travel: Heading to Maine at the end of the summer for my brother’s wedding. Shooting for a few last-minute NYC-local weekend getaways at some point.
