After spending her last few months Skating with the Stars in Los Angeles, Bethenny Frankel is delighted to be back home. "I really like LA, but I have a love affair with New York," the Bethenny Getting Married? star tells the New York Post. "This city gave me so much. Like Jay-Z says, it's a 'concrete jungle where dreams are made.'"

In honor of the Big Apple, B shared her favorite restaurants, supermarkets, spas, and other spots in town that make her, her family, and her gorgeous figure happy.

B's list includes steakhouse Abe & Arthur's, where she loves splitting a steak with husband Jason Hoppy. She explains, "I get sautéed mushrooms and roasted Brussels sprouts as sides. There's oil in them, but that doesn't bother me. Then I take home the leftovers and make a frittata with them the next day."

Bethenny also gushes over Costco and Trader Joe's, her Meccas for affordable grocery shopping. She tries to go organic with everything she eats, and promises her readers and Skinnygirl protégés, "You can be healthy without spending a lot."
