When Sam Heughan first visited New York, it was as a teenage backpacker. Now the Scottish actor’s serving as grand marshal of Saturday’s New York Tartan Day Parade, the annual celebration of Scottish heritage and pride in the US. Though the 35-year-old lives in Los Angeles when he’s not filming Starz’s “Outlander” in Scotland, he’s no stranger to this city. Ahead of the drama’s Season 2 premiere (Saturday at 9 p.m.), he tells ANDREA MORABITO how he spends his New York City downtime.

Running in New York is something I really love doing. You get to see the city, you don’t get lost. Running around Central Park is definitely one of the joys. There’s also a great route on the Hudson River.

I love to stay in Soho — I think it’s a really cool area. But also I love walking around the Meatpacking District. There’s loads of cool bars there and places to eat. Chelsea Market — love going there, you can feast your eyes on lots of delicious things.

On the Scottish theme, I love Highlands bar in the West Village. It’s run by a friend of [my co-star] Caitriona [Balfe’s]. It’s a terrific place to call, like a home away from home. You always get a great welcome there and they’ve got a great selection of whiskey. I love Islay whiskeys, so anything that’s really smoky, really peaty. Laphroaig I’ve been known to drink a lot of and have worked with them on a couple of things.

Last time [I was in New York] I saw “Sleep No More.” I’ve always loved “Macbeth,” it’s been part of my upbringing and my education in theater. I knew nothing about that show and just from start to end it was a great experience. And the [Manderley] Bar there is also a lot of fun.

I don’t really know many people [in the city] but … it’s such a transitory place, so there’s always someone around. I met a friend there last time and we did a great walk on the High Line and stopped off at Artichoke, the pizza place. It’s a bit touristy but it’s a great way to see the city from a [different] perspective. [Source]
