Don’t Miss

Judy Chicago (b. 1939) is universally recognized as a leading light—if not the leading light—of the feminist art movement and a pioneer in the California art scene. Now, as the artist approaches her 75th birthday, the first decade of her career comes under the microscope in a survey that includes such seminal works as the minimalist sculpture “Rainbow Pickett” (below, 1964). | Chicago in L.A.: Judy Chicago’s Early Work 1963-74, Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, 718.638.5000, Apr. 4-Sept. 28

The Hunt Is On!


During his namesake company’s 25thanniversary season, choreographer Stephen Petronio remarked, “We have survived, so we must be pretty good.” Fast-forward five years to spring 2014, and the New York-based troupe marks its 30th anniversary. Better than good, we say. And while the company’s athletically elegant young dancers, like Joshua Green (left), understandably galvanize audiences, you can be sure all eyes this month will be on Petronio himself when he defies his age—he turned 58 in March—and dances the world premiere of a solo piece, set to Philip Glass’ Étude no. 5 for piano. | Stephen Petronio Company, Joyce Theater, 175 Eighth Ave., 212.242.0800, Apr. 8-13

Forget any Easter egg hunt you’ve ever been on: Dyed, hard-boiled eggs are so déclassé. You’re in New York, where the streets, if not exactly paved with gold, nevertheless lead to unimaginable beauty, originality and preciousness. Fabergé, the jeweler, has commissioned Carolina Herrera, Bruce Weber, Zaha Hadid and other artists and designers to create more than 200 large-scale egg sculptures, which have been scattered throughout the five boroughs. Find them all, and you may get a prize, an egg-shaped Fabergé ruby and diamond pendant (below). On Apr. 22, the artworks are to be auctioned for charity. | Fabergé Big Egg Hunt, various venues, thebigegg, Apr. 1-26

Art Bazaar For an emerging artist, showing at Artexpo New York is an opportunity not to be missed. Not only are collectors among the more than 15,000 people who flock to the three-day event every year, gallery owners, interior designers, architects and publishers attend as well, on the lookout for the next big thing in the contemporary art scene. Midcareer and established artists, like David Bromstad, also value the exposure. As fans of the HGTV host well know, designer Bromstad infuses his work with a quirky sense of humor and brands it with his signature—intense, unrestrained color. To attendees at Artexpo, he offers “Pucker Up“ (right), a print destined to leave a luscious, ruby red kiss on a wall. | Artexpo New York, Pier 94, 711 12th Ave.,, Apr. 4-6

Less than 30 seconds into the interview, and it was obvious that actress Estelle Parsons is not your typical 86-year-old. About to open in the new Broadway play, The Velocity of Autumn (right), Parsons has the stamina of a 20-year-old. “I go to the gym five days a week,” she said. “I have a trainer twice a week. Today, I biked an hour [on my stationary bike]. I don’t usually bike that long, but I was finishing up Sycamore Row by John Grisham. So, I thought I’ll bike for an hour. I swim, I do yoga.

the after-dark scene by William G. Frierson IV

Yesterday & Today

Nerves of Steel

New York is an epicenter of all things hot and new—yet the charm of eras past persists. Especially so at the retro Flatiron Lounge, where martini flights (yes, you read correctly) can be sipped at a 30-foot mahogany bar built in 1927, illuminated by Art Deco-inspired, stained-glass lights. Also on offer are all of the Rat Pack’s favorite cocktails, from sazeracs to sidecars. For those who crave current styles, there’s a contemporary, club-style room downstairs. Yesterday or today—take your pick. | Flatiron Lounge, 37 W. 19th St., 212.727.7741

Major League baseball’s 2014 season has just begun, calling fans of all stripes to swarm to a sports bar. Iron Bar NYC, recently opened in Hell’s Kitchen, has you covered: 45 beers on draft and 45 bottled beers can be had on the corner of W. 45th St. (are you sensing the theme here?). Twenty TVs and a 16-foot projection screen play competitive games, from that great American pastime to rugby to boxing to hockey. What’s the most important sport here, you ask? That’s easy. Drinking. | Iron Bar NYC, 713 Eighth Ave., 212.961.7507

eclectic collector

art, antiques & Collectibles by Troy Segal

Snake in the Garden No surprise that artist Michael Noland is an authority on folk art. Works like “The Peaceable Kingdom” (2012) echo the famed 1820-49 landscapes of lions lying down with lambs by minister/ self-taught artist Edward Hicks. But the saturated, Pop Art-like hues are Noland’s own, as is the macabre touch of that skeletal fish. A sign of trouble

Art Nouveau master jeweler Henri Vever was a major collector of Japanese prints—which may explain the orientalist aura of this ca. 1900 diamond brooch. | Macklowe Gallery, 667 Madison Ave., 212.644.6400

A Gallery Grows in Brooklyn

After a decade as a private dealer, Stephen Romano is opening his first physical gallery in artistic hot spot DUMBO. The venue showcases Romano’s specialty: “masters of self-taught art,” such as Charles A. A. Dellschau (1830-1923), who created notebooks filled with drawings and descriptions of fanciful flying machines. | Stephen Romano, 111 Front St., Brooklyn, 646.709.4725

Found Objects John Selvest “thought long and hard” before choosing the title for his solo show, Object Lessons. Like practical examples of a principle, his works, characteristically constructed out of cards, pills and other ephemera, “are outward projections of my inner thoughts,” he says. One piece consists of 4,000 romance novels, with some spelling its title, “Forever”—a word oftused in love stories that casts an acid comment on the paperbacks’ fate. | Morgan Lehman, 535 W. 22nd St., 212.268.6699, Apr. 17-May 17

great dining experiences by Lois Levine

A Northern Star Until the early 1900s, the Hudson River was called the North River, and the Victorian elements of North River restaurant—antique brass sconces, wainscoting and gleaming oak flooring—are a nod to the era. The menu, on the other hand, is immersed in contemporary eclectic: “belly dougnuts” (tender pork belly dressed with coconut and soy) and Brussels sprouts soup are some of the more unusual starters, paired with simple, comforting entrées: roast chicken (below) and crispy lamb stew. I’d say venture to the south of this city for a taste from North River. | North River, 166 First Ave., 212.228.1200

It’s pretty simple: If you’re a meat lover, it is de rigueur that you pay a visit to Churrascaria Plataforma. The restaurant, in the heart of the Theater District, is large but welcoming, warmed up by cream-colored tablecloths and exposed brick walls. The salad bar is your first course, unlike any salad bar you’ve experienced: Options include chilled portobello mushrooms and Brussels sprouts, grilled asparagus, aged cheeses and dozens of more choices. Beef, turkey and chicken, served on large skewers tableside, are offered when the green side of a small card on your table is up, and halted when it is turned to the red side. Temptations like garlic steak and turkey wrapped in bacon are too succulent to refuse, even when you’ve begun to groan. And being that service is immediate, it’s an easy choice for before theater. Bueno, indeed. | Churrascaria Plataforma, 316 W. 49th St., 212.245.0505

Mediterranean Escape

A rustic, Greek island ambience is the mission behind Kefi on the Upper West Side: The narrow, bi-level spot is adorned with multicolored tile walls and round flax wall hangings, and woven-plastic taverna chairs enhance the casual Mediterranean feel. The menu, too, is all about Greek tradition, from a starter of spreads (left), such as tzatziki (Greek yogurt), a Greek caviar (carp roe, shallots and olive oil) and fire-roasted eggplant, flavored wth garlic confit and fresh herbs. There are plenty of main course options, both hearty (sheep milk ricotta ravioli) and light (grilled branzino with potatoes and olives). A Greek dessert of galaktoboureko—creamy custard pie with phyllo dough—elicits the unavoidable aahs of delight. A scrumptious, simple slice of Greek life is yours at Kefi. | Kefi, 505 Columbus Ave., 212.873.0200

Power Rub Though it’s usually associated with relaxing, a full-body massage can also invigorate. Graceful Services offers a unique, “deep and penetrating massage” (to quote owner Grace Macnow) that’s a global cocktail of techniques: Swedish rubbing, Japanese shiatsu and Chinese tuina. The latter involves pushing, pulling and even light pinching

Plasmalite? Yes, Plasmalite. This European procedure, recently approved by the FDA, is one of the newer treatments offered at Boutique Body +. Soft music, white leather couches and splashes of pink everywhere immediately project an alluring atmosphere at this Upper East Side spa. A long menu of beauty, health and anti-aging treatments are offered, including acupuncture, botox injections, colon hydroptherapy, signature body sculpting and, of course, the aforementioned Plasmalite. The process includes a deep exfoliation and cleansing, then short bursts of light, combined with a little “pinch,” are applied all over the face and neck; it eliminates fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, adds overall toning, reduces pores and pigmentation. After that, treat the opposite end of your bod with reflexology (a foot massage) that will leave you in a zone far, far away. | BoutiqueBody+, 833 Lexington Ave., Suite 2, 646.964.5058

Idina After From Broadway to Disney and back again to the Great White Way, Idina Menzel has followed her own yellow brick road. By Brian Scott Lipton



Photos: idina menzel in wicked and if/then, joan marcus

Having been away from Broadway

for almost nine years, since she left her Tony Award-winning role as the headstrong witch Elphaba in the smash hit Wicked, Idina Menzel thought long and hard about the right project in which to return to the Great White Way. But the stunning, 43-year-old Long Island native is the first to admit that when she began considering the role of Elizabeth in the new musical If/Then, now playing at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, she could never have known just how much this piece would actually resonate with her years later. The show focuses on her character, Elizabeth, a woman considering whether she’s made the right choices in life, and presents, simultaneously, the two different paths Elizabeth might have taken. However, back when the musical was first proposed to her in 2009, Menzel’s life was practically perfect. She was happily married to her former Rent co-star Taye Diggs and her star was rising in Hollywood. Now, the pair is separated and share bicoastal parenting duties of their 4-year-old son, Walker Nathaniel. “In the very beginning, when this project came about, I simply wanted to work with people I love, specifically my Wicked producer David Stone and my Rent director Michael Greif, who suggested this nugget of an idea that had been given to them by the writers Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey,” says Menzel. “Of course, right now, I admit there is a lot of life imitating art with If/Then. But one of the things IN New YORK | april 2014 |

The Beatles had thousands of girls simultaneously crying and shrieking when the moptops first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in February, 1964; meanwhile, millions of Americans watched them at home on their grainy black-and-white television screens.

Yes, The Beatles stole American hearts back in the day, but the British Invasion of the U.S. music scene is far from over. Electro-pop duo Pet Shop Boys have feet on this side of the pond tapping. Catch them at Terminal 5 on Apr. 26.

It all began with an advance copy of Tomorrow-Land, a new book which recently landed on my desk, about the New York World’s Fair of 1964—this month marks the 50th anniversary of that legendary exhibition (see p. 88). Chatting with my fellow editors about it led us to a fantasy: What would it be like to step into a time machine and be catapulted back to Manhattan, 1964? Well, we decided to do that: Take a trip backward and see where we all end up. One stop, for me, would have most decidedly been the fair itself, where President Lyndon Johnson made the opening remarks on Apr. 22. (This month, if I get a stab of nostalgia for the 1960s, LBJ-style, I can head over to Broadway and see Bryan Cranston channel the former president in All the Way.) What else would I be doing back in the ’60s? I could imagine nothing more thrilling than watching the Fab Four perform on The Ed Sullivan Show at CBS’ TV Studio 50 on Feb. 9, 1964. (Now, if I need a dose of spectacularly energetic pop music, it would be a Billy Joel concert at Madison Square Garden).

Who rocked the ‘64 Billboard charts besides The Beatles? Bobby Vinton, Louis Armstrong, The Beach Boys and The Supremes.

The Beatles are gone, but their admirers are not: Billy Joel, who cites the Beatles as one of his greatest influences, keeps the infectious sounds of pop music alive at Madison Square Garden, where he is signed on to do monthly concerts through December.

On Oct. 31, 1964, folk legend Bob Dylan played a killer set at NYC’s Philharmonic Hall (today known as Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall). He debuted now famous compositions, such as “Mr. Tambourine Man” and “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding).” Here, he poses smiling with Jack Elliott in Greenwich Village in February ‘64.

The heyday of groovy Manhattan nightlife is hardly over: Places like 54 Below (left), housed below the former Studio 54, offers theatrical headliners and supper nightly; while Tao Downtown (right) shows restaurant-goers what dramatic dining’s all about.

Chic spots for dining in 1964? Think: The Colony, Lutèce, La Côte Basque, Trader Vic‘s, The Forum of the Twelve Caesars, Longchamps and Luchow’s.

Bob Dylan’s iconic folk album, hit stores in January of ’64. The message is as true today as it was then. We’re in an age of change, and change inspires. One just has to get with the beat. Then, civil rights was the issue of the day and Harlem was ablaze with race riots. Today, President Obama is the first black man to lead the free world and the Uptown ’hood is in bloom, bumping with jazz joints and a revived restaurant scene. Just look at the recent opening of Minton’s, a swanky live music hub and Southern comfort-food haven that pays homage to the 1930s jazz club of the same name; or Harlem Shake, a bustling retro diner attracting citywide crowds. The civil rights fight continues in 2014, this time on behalf of the LGBT community. The group makes strides toward greater equality every day. In the ’60s, a police raid of the Stonewall Inn culminated in the violent Stonewall Riots (at the still operating Village gay bar). Now, if you steer queer, NYC is your town—with all-are-welcome hot spots, from Williamsburg’s offbeat Metropolitan Bar to Hell’s Kitchen’s dancey Industry club. The beat goes on. And it’s a beat worth swaying to. —William Frierson

The Waldorf Salad, created in 1896 at what was then called the Waldorf Hotel, quickly gained fame and became a regular staple of diners there. Today, many restaurants around town still serve the refreshing mix of shredded apples, celery and walnuts in a creamy dressing.

In 1964, Pasquale “Patsy” Scognamillo (above) of the famed Italian eatery, Patsy’s, was busy entertaining Frank Sinatra and his posse; Sinatra said many times that Patsy’s was one of his favorite New York City restaurants.

Victor’s Café was just one week old at the start of 1964, serving what was then considered innovative Cuban cuisine in the Theater District. IN New YORK | april 2014 |

It was in 1964 that André Courrèges took fashion into the future with his Space Age collection—a concept modernized in 2014 by the eye-catching prints and vibrant colors of Desigual’s dresses and the vogue aesthetics at Lisa Perry New York. Oscar de la Renta, who doubled the size of his Madison Avenue boutique last year, also made his claim to fame in the early ’60s by dressing Jacqueline Kennedy and draping women in maxi dresses. While de la Renta’s fans relished the casual, floorlength frocks, other women gravitated toward sky-high hemlines after the miniskirt made its debut in a 1964 issue of Vogue. Now, the Museum at FIT pays tribute to the decade’s daring hemlines by displaying iconic pieces from the time in Trend-ology (thru Apr. 30). 1964 may have been 50 years ago, but its defining fashion inspires this 25-year-old’s sense of style and imagination. —Joni Sweet

let my colleagues fantasize about New York in 1964: I lived through what was the best and worst of times, forever defined (for me, at least) by the assassination of President Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963. But New York was—and is—nothing if not resilient. One of the first signs of a return to life after the tragedy was the Broadway opening of Hello, Dolly! on Jan. 16, 1964. I loved it then, but I wonder now if the critical and public reception would have been half so ecstatic had the world not desperately needed a lighthearted musical in which to find escape. The power of art to heal extended to the fine arts, too. Blockbuster retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art—on Pierre Bonnard and Max Beckmann—opened my eyes, while a show at the Wildenstein gallery turned me on to Camille Pissarro, who became the hero of a term paper in which I trashed pop idol Andy Warhol as a charlatan. Heady stuff. My fondest 1964 memory? The Vatican Pavilion at the World’s Fair. Enshrined there, direct from St. Peter’s Basilica, was Michelangelo’s “Pietà” sculpture. Reverent spectators, standing on futuristic moving walkways, glided past the 1499 marble masterpiece. Going forward and looking back: a fitting metaphor for what we IN editors have been doing here.—Francis Lewis

The triptych, “Departure,” from the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art and a star of that institution’s 1964 Max Beckmann show, is currently on view in the Neue Galerie’s exhibit, Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany, 1937.

Pop art immortal Andy Warhol would be laughing all the way to the bank, if he knew that one of his 1964 Brillo Soap Pads boxes sold at Sotheby’s New York in 2012 for $722,500.

maybe we should rename it the Big Green Apple. New York abounds with ever more eco-friendly options in its restaurants, spas and stores. Being “green” encompasses everything, from consuming organic foods and spirits to trying beauty treatments without chemicals to wearing clothing crafted locally from recycled fabric scraps. It proves New Yorkers can take care of the planet without sacrificing taste, style or luxury.

NO-DENIAL DINING There are a dozen different ways to define healthy eating. Among the town’s myriad options, here’s a sampling of fresh and/or fascinating food purveyors, arranged on a continuum of approaches that runs from strictly raw to sustainably farmed. The temperature of the fare never rises above 118°, but Pure Food and Wine (54 Irving Pl., 212.477.1010)—the first raw-food restaurant in New York—is hot, with plush red seats, candlelight and dishes that startle and satisfy. Raw advocates believe that food

loses vital nutrients and enzymes when it’s heated above a certain point. At Pure Food, Executive Chef Nikki King Bennett both amplifies the essential elements of uncooked fruits, vegetables and grains and creates inventive combos: Basil/pistachio pesto and macadamia/pumpkin-seed ricotta stripe a zucchini/heirloom tomato lasagna, and henof-the-woods tacos al pastor swap a zesty jicama wrap for a tortilla. In contrast, Candle Café West (2427 Broadway, 212.769.8900) contents itself with just celebrating a vegan bill of fare (one that completely eschews animal products, including milk and eggs). The new sister of the famed Candle Cafe, the first NYC eatery certified by the Green Restaurant Association, it does wonders with mock meats, like its charred, skewered seitan chimichurri or portobello steak in a black pepper/cabernet reduction. There’s also an elaborate bar serving sustainable beverages: wines from biodynamic vineyards (where plants, animals and soil are treated as a single, holistic system); spirits and beers made from organically grown grains; and nothing containing sulfites or artificial additives. So, forget the rum and Coca-Cola and try a Bodhi Tree, a scarlet-hued mix of Fair vodka, sake, poached pear/green tea, pomegranate and Veev acai liqueur. Those craving something more casual can have their cake and eat it too at Blossom Du Jour (259 W. 23rd St., 212.229.2595), a vegan fast-food eatery that seduces even the most omnivorous with its cholesterol- and trans-fats-free mini apple crumble pies and red velvet cupcakes. Content to stay simply vegetarian? The fetish for fermented foods (which are rich in probiotics, the “good gut” bacteria that aid digestion) has propelled the pickle from side slice to star at seven-month-old The Pickle Shack (256 4th Ave., Gowanus, Brooklyn, 347.763.2127), in the newly hip nabe near the Gowanus Canal. The housemade, aged briny bounty adds zest to Chef Neal Harden’s vegetarian sandwiches—from kimchee in the smoked tofu bahn mi to Branston pickle paired with creamy Taleggio cheese. Also on the menu: a wide selection of bot-

tled beers from Dogfish Head, a philanthropically oriented craft brewery. If an overall organic approach is OK, head to the just-opened Blue Olive Market (210 E. 41st St., 212.922.0991), which offers all the makings for a heart-healthy, Mediterranean diet. Perfumed with aromas like lemon and thyme from its dizzying selection of olive oils, this rustic-chic food hall artfully arranges hot foods (including classics like spanakopita and moussaka), soups, charcuterie and meze stations. Kick back at the wine bar, which emphasizes Greek, Iberian Peninsula and other Med-region vinos, or grab to go an authentically dense Greek “fro yo,” made on the spot with a mist of liquid nitrogen—natural as the air we breathe.

Kee-Ko Organics specializes in eco-friendly garb for babies (available at Sprout) and the occasional adult—as in these New York City Punch-Out Flip-Flops, ideal for a carbon-emission-free walk around town.

named for the cherry blossom-scented water in which your tired feet soak before they are treated to a trio of natural Japanese ingredients: a loofah plant/soy bean powder exfoliant, green tea antioxidant mask and rice bran massage oil. For those whose hair needs help, small, sunlit Swing Organic Salon (280 E. 10th St., 212.677.2008) is the go-to green salon. After owner/stylist Luis Alfonso became sick from constant exposure to peroxides and ammonia, he taught himself organic vegetable color systems, some of which use techniques dating from ancient Egyptian times. Natural, artisanal hair and beauty products are a booming cottage industry across the East River, where Brooklyn Grooming makes beard oils and pomades to tame the unruly facial hair for which the borough’s men are famed. Sold at Teich (22 Eighth Ave., 212.537.6630), a shop that champions local purveyors, BG’s products include organic vegetable butters, beeswax, herbs and essential oils, packed in vintage amber bottles or oldfashioned tins and named for local nabes: Williamsburg Beard Oil or Red Hook Hair Pomade. While he anoints his beard, she can bathe in Metropolis Soap Company’s aromatic lavender bath salts, another organic Brooklyn-made product, replete with actual dried lavender and rose petals; the line is at Life Thyme Market (410 Sixth Ave., 212.420.9099).

SUSTAINABLE SPENDING Eco-conscious consumption can cover several different criteria: buying goods made of organic textiles or reclaimed materials; produced by local artisans or fairtrade (adequately compensated) workers from abroad; manufactured using environmentally sound methods.
