Back to the Future

It’s taken 100 years for the United States to catch up with Italian Futurism, the dynamic avant-garde art movement that energized Europe in the early-20th century. But now it’s full speed ahead, as New York’s Guggenheim Museum makes up for lost time with the nation’s first comprehensive Futurist exhibition of 300 masterworks, including Umberto Boccioni’s fragmented, cubistic horse and rider (opposite page) and Fortunato Depero’s playful construction (left).

G’day The Lord of the Rings movies may have helped put New Zealand on the map (they were filmed there), but the Royal New Zealand Ballet keeps the island country on its toes. The kiwi troupe, which marked its 60th anniversary in 2013, makes its long-overdue New York debut this month with three works: Benjamin Millepied’s 28 Variations on a Theme by Paganini; Banderillero, Venezuelan choreographer Javier De Frutos’ dance inspired by bullfighting; and Of Days (below) by Andrew Simmons. On a personal note, the RNZB’s engagement will be something of a homecoming for its artistic director, Ethan Stiefel, a former Principal dancer with New York City Ballet. | Royal New Zealand Ballet, Joyce Theater, 175 Eighth Ave., 212.242.0800, Feb. 12-16


Marc Anthony (below), king of the salsa, pop and Latin charts, gives truth to the adage: once a New Yorker, always a New Yorker. No matter where his concert tour takes him—from Bogota to Miami, Puerto Rico to Houston, Buenos Aires to Chicago—come Valentine’s Day, there’s only one place he wants to be: his native city, singing for his local fans. Expect hearts to melt when Anthony croons—in Spanish, of course—“I’m gonna laugh, I’m gonna dance, I’m gonna enjoy,” from his No. 1 salsa single, “Vivir Mi Vida (Live My Life).” | Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Ave., Brooklyn, 800.745.3000, Feb. 15

Backstage Glimpse

As the name implies, Emil Nolde: Expressions in Watercolor explores the Expressionist master’s work in aqua-based paints— often a “serendipitous process,” gallerist Dorsey Waxter says. Nolde (1867-1956) would wet Japanese paper, then apply a tinted stroke; “the color’s creeping movement across the paper would determine the image” to develop. Result: dazzling celebrations such as “Sea Watercolor With Steamers (Red, Yellow, Blue)” (1946). | Van Doren Waxter, 23 E. 73rd St., 212.445.0444, thru Feb. 28

Dream Girls

The muse—a female figure who inspires an artist—is an old concept. But in the late1800s, she took on a new form: Artists began depicting their ideal femme garbed not as a goddess or fantasy figure, but as her everyday self. The Modern Muse displays 17 examples by 20th-century masters, ranging from a ripe nude by Raoul Dufy to a slim-hipped, bobbed-haired flapper by Kees van Dongen; from a loving mother by Marc Chagall to the awkward adolescent depicted by Amedeo Modigliani in “Jeune Fille Assise, les Cheveux Dénoués” (right, 1919)—painted, sadly, only a year before he died. | Hammer Galleries, 475 Park Ave., 212.644.4400, thru Feb. 28

Golden Time

Vienna, 1810: You belong to the thriving bourgeoisie. What better way to affirm your status, and the rise of domestic values, than with an ornate mantel clock— all ebonized wood and gilded bronze accents. Thanks to the Industrial Revolution, such things are much more affordable now. And its Neoclassical elements— the paw feet, the alabaster bust—offer just the touch of class you crave. | Iliad, 901 Broadway, 212.935.4382

Streams of Color

New York City Ballet’s winter season is in full swing at Lincoln Center. But its dancers can also be sighted a few miles away, in Henry Leutwyler’s intimate, dreamlike photos (such as “Ballet”), ongoing at Foley gallery. Shot from unusual angles and at anticlimactic moments, the images evoke the ballet paintings of Degas—stage glamour contrasted with the workaday world. | Foley, 97 Allen St., 212.244.9081

INSIDE FINE ART GALLERY HASTED KRAEUTLER SARAH HASTED & JOSEPH KRAEUTLER Owners of Hasted Kraeutler, a contemporary art gallery that is located in the heart of New York’s Chelsea art district. Sarah and Joseph share art works from the gallery’s outstanding roster of artists, including painter Kim Dong Yoo, sculptor Kwang Young Chun, and photographer Nick Brandt.


Kim Dong Yoo Installation view

Kwang Young Chun is a Korean master sculptor who is world renowned for his process of composing structures with thousands of small triangles, each individually hand molded in paper and strung together one by one. The artist gathers mulberry paper from old books with .RUHDQWH[WVDQGG\HVWKHSDSHUVLQWRPDQ\GLIIHUHQWVKDGHVZLWKWHDVDQGÀRZHUV&KXQ¶V complicated and meticulous sculptures are stunning, a must see!

NICK BRANDT Nick Brandt’s photographs feature stunning images of endangered African animals, which he photographs “in the same way I would a human being, watching for the right ‘pose’ that hopefully will best capture his or her spirit,” he says. Always “moving in close” he never uses a telephoto lens, because it is too impersonal. Prices of the photographs start at $4,500. Hasted Kraeutler is open to the public Tuesday - Saturday, 11 am - 6 pm. Nick Brandt, Elephant Drinking, Amboseli, 2007

Man of Many Talents

He writes the songs, and he gets to sing them. He writes the words, and he gets to act them. As composer, coauthor of the book (with lyricist Kellen Blair) and now one of only two actors onstage in the Off-Broadway musical Murder for Two, Joe Kinosian is a busy man. Consider, too, he not only plays all nine suspects (male and female) in this madcap 90-minute murder mystery, he also accompanies himself on the piano. So, what does actor Joe think of writer Joe? “Actor Joe would say that playwright Joe really gets actor Joe’s sense of humor and penchant for non sequiturs and for surrealist comedy,” he says, with a twinkle in his voice.

Keep it light: The ZAGGkeys Folio for iPad Air (below, right) is a slim Bluetooth keyboard with a pivoting hinge, allowing users to work the iPad at any viewing angle.

Bernardin’s Business

Le Bernardin continues to impress as one of the best places in the city for a business lunch or dinner, or even just a quiet place to meet for cocktails. The posh and serene dining room is not only known as one of the greatest seafood temples in the world, but, even packed, it lends itself to a hushed environ that makes conversation (or negotiating) easy. Its lounge has become a favorite of executives looking for a slightly less formal, but equally elegant way to conduct a business meeting. The lounge offers a three-course lunch menu, and the restaurant’s standard prix fixe and tasting menus are also available there. And, naturally, there are always cocktails on hand to smoothly seal any deal. | Le Bernardin, 155 W. 51st St., 212.554.1515

High-tech Terminal

There was a time when folks dressed to the nines to fly and pilots were celebrities in their own right. While those days may be gone, a new era of luxurious and leisurely travel is being ushered in. At the revamped Delta Air Lines terminal at LaGuardia Airport, each seat in the waiting area features an iPad, which passengers can use to surf the Internet, get some work done, access personal email to tie up loose ends before their flight or browse what’s available in shops and cafés nearby, then arrange a delivery to their seat—be it a dirty martini or their favorite fragrance. Waiting for a flight has never been so Zen and, at the same time, so hooked-up. | Delta Air Lines, 800.221.1212

n the unusual menu of newcomer New Zealand restaurant The Musket Room (265 Elizabeth St., 212.219.0764), one dish has become a favorite, even if folks are unsure whether to order it at the meal’s beginning or its end. The “foie bon bon” consists of foie gras coated in 73 percent cocoa Valhrona chocolate, served on savory sage shortbread with a layer of strawberry jelly. “It’s not really that sweet,” says Executive Chef/Owner Matt Lambert, who’s also working on a miso waffle cone, with tuna tartare and wasabi tobiko, topped with bonito panna cotta, which “looks like soft serve but is salty and smoky, so there’s the disconnect between your brain and your tongue. My food is quite simple,” Chef Lambert explains, “but every now and

son Ave., 212.891.8100), especially in the Gallery, the more formal, prix-fixe-only section of the restaurant. He loves to instill dark-meat fowl with sweet flavors: squab with cherrycocoa sauce or duck breast with spicy fig sauce. When he opened during the mild days of last October, he paired raw tuna with watermelon and balsamic vinegar; now that “watermelon season’s over, I do it with red beets and red wine vinegar.” And his take on goose liver is a foie gras brûlée, made with acidic fresh fruits and topped with crunchy brown sugar. Invoking the palate of his native Bombay, Executive Chef Floyd Cardoz of Battery Park City’s North End Grill (104 North End Ave., 646.747.1600) also relishes contrasting tastes. “An important characteristic of most Asian food is the

again I like to put in surprises, so you think you’re eating one thing, and it’s another.” Chef Lambert is part of a hot New York restaurant trend. Increasingly, chefs are experimenting with gustatory diversity, eschewing the traditional separation of entree- or dessert-appropriate foods, and mixing sweet and savory flavors in dishes. It’s not an entirely new technique—think about such classics as lamb chops with mint jelly or apple pie topped with cheddar— but of late it has really evolved, the result of increasingly international cuisine influences, the lure of molecular gastronomy and diners’ increasing openness to complex taste sensations. Another master of the unexpected, French chef Michel Richard, is engaging in innovative whimsies at his recently opened Villard Michel Richard (New York Palace, 455 Madi-

balance between sweet, sour, spicy and bitter,” he explains. Throughout his cooking, Chef Cardoz balances acids from tamarinds, citrus fruits, tomatoes, mangos or cherries with sugars from maple syrup, honey, dates, apricots or raisins. He dresses a side of charcoal-grilled squash with maple syrup and lime; serves slow-poached eggs with smoked pumpkin, celery hearts and bottarga (briny roe that “cuts the sweetness” of the caramelized pumpkin). Chef Cardoz even gives a twist to the now-ubiquitous raw kale salad, contrasting the greens’ bitterness with raw Mutsu apple, a dash of maple syrup and red wine vinegar. “These unexpected flavors are very exciting.” As Chef Cardoz notes, sweet/salty juxtapositions are typical of Asian cuisines—and thus are deeply ingrained in the menu at Mr. K’s (570 Lexington Ave., 212.583.1668). “In China, IN New YORK | february 2014 |

especially in the Shanghai region, a savory dish is achieved by a balance of the salt and the sugar. If you achieve the right balance, you’ll taste neither salt not sugar,” explains Manager John Fong. “We don’t use a lot of spices or herbs. We work with a little bit of ginger and scallions, but basically the balance is between salt and sweetness.” Among the most popular items on Mr. K’s menu, the Chilean sea bass is marinated overnight in a mixture of ground miso powder, honey, soy sauce and garlic. Mr. Fong’s favorite childhood dish, honey braised pork ribs, mixes the sweet notes

tard or chipotle. The restaurant also offers fried chicken livers with caramelized onions and, on a lighter note, a chicken burger with caramelized pineapple. “It’s such an awesome combination to have the three flavors that people crave the most: salt, sweet and fat,” Eric says. The search for balance also inspires Executive Chef Travis Swikard’s Meditteranean-themed menu at Boulud Sud (20 W. 64th St., 212.595.1313), albeit in a more complex way. Chef Swikard serves cauliflower tabouleh with pistachio, pomegranate and green olives all year, and Cleopatra lamb shank

of honey with a salty kick from soy sauce. “We make a honey and soy sauce reduction, and braise the pork until it almost falls off the bone,” he explains. “At the last stage of cooking, the honey and soy mixture becomes a bit sticky and lends a shiny glaze, which appeals to the eye.” Honey also figures prominently in the quintessentially American cooking at Bromberg Bros. Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken (28 E. 1st St., 212.228.0404) in the East Village, one of a small empire of eateries owned by chefs Eric and Bruce Bromberg. As children, Eric recalls, “when we wouldn’t eat something, our parents allowed us to add honey; we had a honey bear on the table and we’d put it on our vegetables.” Their latest venture is the apotheosis of their favorite flavor profiles. Before serving, the chicken is dusted with a spice mix that’s predominantly salt, but also has paprika, garlic powder and a hint of chile pepper. Guests are then encouraged to slather the cooked bird with a choice of honeys: wildflower, mus-


with sweet potato puree, white wine poached apricots and crushed Marcona almonds as a holiday special. Another of his favorites, pumpkin agnolotti cooked in brown butter, features a brunoise of candied mustard fruit. “On the bottom we do an amaretti [almond macaroon] puree, so with every bite you get a spiced cookie sensation,” Chef Swikard explains. “We also add salted ricotta and a dice of sage to the brunoise. It lightens the dish and brightens the aroma.” Chef Matteo Bergamini at SD26 (19 E. 26th St., 212.265.5959), who grew up in the Northern Italian region of Lake Garda, finds inspiration in a fusion of traditions from all over Italy. His Sicilian caponata mixes creamy eggplant with salty anchovies and olives, balanced by sweet raisins and crunchy pine nuts. He infuses salt cod fritters, a traditional Neapolitan dish, with a Northern Italian twist, serving them with scallions, green apple and mostarda di Cremona, a colorful condiment of spiced and candied fruits in a mustard-fla-

vored syrup. The chef is also very fond of sweet and sour caramelized baby onions, typical of Modena, serving them as a side to sautéed veal loin and braised endive, with a smoked pancetta cream sauce. While sweet stuff is invading appetizers and entrées, diners are developing a salt tooth when it comes to dessert. Salty candies seem to be all over town—from white chocolate squares studded with caviar at Petrossian (182 W. 58th St., 212.245.2214) to dark- or milk-chocolate-coated bacon at Roni-Sue’s Chocolate Shoppe & Cafe (148 Forsyth St.,

flavor without using chemical agents, powders or stabilizers. In nature you have everything you need to create a voyage from sweet to salty to bitter to umami,” he says. “The trick is to find the right balance.” For his olive oil panna cotta with strawberry-almond shortbread, Chef Gozzoli uses Polifemo olive oil—“full of the aromas of Southern Italy, the almonds and flowers”—to make the fundamental concoction of gelatin/ cream/sugar less sweet, and then combines it with Sicilian pistachios and lemons, adding a bracing note of basil in an accompanying gelato. “The olive oil makes the panna cotta a bit

212.677.1216). Restaurant chefs are building on this taste for less-saccharine sweets. For example, a love of Sicilian olive oil led to one of Executive Chef Filippo Gozzoli’s signature desserts at A Voce Columbus (The Shops at Columbus Circle, Time Warner Center, 10 Columbus Circle, 212.823.2523). Having spent time working in Asia, Chef Gozzoli is interested in umami, the so-called “fifth taste”—“it’s the idea of extreme

more fat, so the gelato is to refresh the palate,” he explains. For the particularly carnivorous gastronome, Chef Lambert at The Musket Room has created another novelty dessert. “I recently made a birthday cake that was all meat. I thought it would be funny if the pastry cream was foie gras,” he says. The invention hasn’t hit the menu yet, though: “I’m just waiting for the right person and the right birthday.” IN New YORK | february 2014 |

Trivia and tidbits on the city that never sleeps by Lois Levine

Facts of the Rock Here’s what you probably didn’t know about Top of the Rock, located at the tippy-top of the Art Deco skyscraper, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, in Midtown. The six-level observatory opened in 1933, and was designed to resemble the upper decks of a 1930s luxury ocean liner. The breathtaking views from the upper levels include such iconic New York sights as the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park and the Empire State Building. If you arrive shortly before sunset, you can take in both the day and night views, and that ain‘t too shabby.

800 different languages are spoken in New York, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world.

Steps of Love Looking for a place to pop the question? Try the glass steps in Times Square on 47th St. and Broadway. Between the romantic cherry-red color and the dazzling light and video displays surrounding you, your intended will surely have a wedding proposal that will be impossible to forget.

“City of prose and fantasy … its streets a triumph of cubism, its moral philosophy that of the dollar. New York impressed me tremendously because, more than any other city in the world, it is the fullest expression of our modern age.”—Leon Trotsky, My Life (1930). 84

In 1968, French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg and British actress Jane Birkin (who, as one critic noted, is still a fashion trendsetter for New York women today) started a 12-year love affair that photographer Andrew Birkin (Jane’s brother) captures in Jane & Serge: A Famiy Album (Taschen Books, 2013).
