Princess Royal Since time immemorial, women of royal stature have dabbled in dance, from Salome swirling with her seven veils to Marie Antoinette engaging in court divertissements at Versailles. As a prima ballerina in the 1960s and now as a choreographer, Her Royal Highness Princess Norodom Buppha Devi of Cambodia has gone one step further than her predecessors and made a career of her passion. The Legend of Apsara Mera (left), with movement created by the princess for the Royal Ballet of Cambodia, receives its United States premiere this month as part of the Season of Cambodia, a New Yorkwide festival of that nation’s rich culture. » The Royal Ballet of Cambodia, BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, 30 Lafayette Ave., Brooklyn, 718.636.4100, May 2-4

hot happenings around town

Manhattan is home to hundreds, if not thousands of restaurants. What’s a visitor to do with only two or three days in which to experience as many as possible? This month’s four major food fests have the answer. Here, gourmands can sample in a single location­ —Grand Central Terminal, a street in TriBeCa or Hell’s Kitchen, a tent on the Upper West Side—dishes from the most restaurants in the least amount of time. » Grand

Asian Flair If you’re Sandra Bullock or Nicole Kidman, and you want to turn heads on the red carpet, you wear something couture by Vera Wang (right, ball gown, Spring 2013). If you’re a two-term first lady of the United States, as Michelle Obama is, the go-to designer for both of your inaugural gowns is Jason Wu. New York-based Chinese-American designers have been making headlines since their emergence in the 1980s, with many, such as Derek Lam, Phillip Lim, Anna Sui, Vivienne Tam and Zang Toi, becoming household names not just to high-profile clients, but to the public as well. An exhibition devoted to these and nine other visionaries, fittingly on view on the edge of Chinatown, examines their individual aesthetics and collective impact on world fashion. » Front Row: Chinese-American Designers, Museum of Chinese in America, 215 Centre St., 212.619.4785, thru Sept. 29

Details speak volumes; and in Edward Hopper’s painting “Office at Night” (left, 1940), the detail that speaks the loudest is the piece of paper that lies on the floor between the man sitting at the desk and the woman standing at the file cabinet. Who will pick it up? Hopper disavowed any such narrative—”for none is intended,” he wrote—emphasizing instead the painting’s formal reality and, in particular, the sources of its light. Still, he introduced a tantalizing element, and introduced it late in the creative process, according to preliminary sketches and drawings for “Office at Night.” The first major museum show to concentrate on Hopper as a draftsman pairs finished works, like “Office at Night,” with preparatory studies that take the spectator inside the mind and sensibility of a major American artist, as he journeys from inspiration to realization.

behind the curtain news » by Francis Lewis

The late Nora Ephron—novelist, essayist, filmmaker and playwright—wrote what she knew: marriage and infidelity in Heartburn, both the novel and screenplay; aging in I Feel Bad About My Neck, a collection of essays; and tabloid journalism in Lucky Guy (left, Tom Hanks and Maura Tierney), her final work for the stage. Portraying newspaper reporter and columnist Mike McAlary in Lucky Guy was second nature to Ephron, having been a reporter for the New York Post in her twenties. “I loved smoking and drinking Scotch and playing dollar poker,” she recalled in an essay. “I didn’t know much about anything, and I was in a profession where you didn’t have to. I loved the deadlines. I loved the speed. I loved that you wrapped the fish.” Her parents, Henry and Phoebe Ephron, also wrote what they knew: The ingenue in their 1961 Broadway comedy, Take Her, She’s Mine, was based on their college-age daughter, Nora. » Lucky Guy, Broadhurst Theatre, 235 W. 44th St., 212.239.6200

Split Personality there are two sides to constantine maroulis, just as there are two sides to the character he plays in the new broadway production of Jekyll & Hyde (below). when asked if there is a bad boy like hyde in him, maroulis, whose nice-guy rocker image won him legions of fans in the fourth season of American Idol, emphatically says, “yes,” before adding, with a qualifying laugh, “but he stays mainly onstage. i sometimes can have a bit of a Greek temper when provoked. i think there is a bit of hyde in everyone. in the end, this is what makes us human. controlling the rage is part of the fun!” having rocked himself to a tony award nomination for best performance by an actor in a Leading role in a musical (Rock of Ages, 2009), the brooklyn-born maroulis now looks to Jekyll & Hyde to solidify his cred as an actor/singer. as to the possibility of a rodgers & hammerstein musical in his future, he doesn’t rule that out, saying in true Jekyll-and-hyde fashion: “is there a good part for me? i’m pretty versatile. i don’t have to just rock.”

actors’ advocate one hundred years ago, on may 26, 1913, 112 actors met in a hotel on columbus circle and founded actors’ equity association (aea), the labor union that has since grown to represent more than 49,000 professional stage actors and stage managers working on broadway, offbroadway and regionally in the united states. never one to mince words, tallulah bankhead (above, with donald cook in Private Lives on broadway, 1948) was an early supporter of equity, famously saying that before the union’s

existence, “the producers looked upon actors as silly children, vain, illogical, capricious, even slightly demented.” pay, occupational safety—and dignity— were and continue to be priorities. to this end, equity negotiates wages and safe, sanitary working conditions, while enforcing the equal opportunity provisions in all equity contracts. equity also provides major benefits to its members, such as health and pension plans.

Artistic Arboretum

Mix ’n’ Match Louis Comfort Tiffany was famed for the integrated nature of his iconic stained-glass lamps: a tree-trunk base that “blossomed” into, say, a wisteria-patterned shade. That’s why this table model (right, ca. 1900) is a bit of a beautiful anomaly: a bronze and Favrile glass candelabra (one of his rarer designs) topped by a field of red tulips. Perhaps the combo was a custom order. Back in the Belle Époque day, one could browse Tiffany’s showroom, select a base and match it with any shade. Tiffany was an artist, but also a businessman—and he knew the (wealthy) customer was always right. » Macklowe Gallery, 667 Madison Ave., 212.644.6400

They provide us with sustenance, shelter, the very oxygen we breathe. Yet man’s relationship with Earth’s flora remains a complex one—as 33 artists discuss in A Discourse on Plants, a mulitmedia exhibit of works ranging from resin-covered sculptures to real trees. If artist Shen Shaomin depicts human dominance (and cruelty) with a bonsai bound and literally choked by a wire cable, nature has the upper hand in Daniel Traub’s photos of empty city lots overrun with weeds. Yet serene scenes exist, too, as exemplified by Scott McFarland’s photographed vista of “Cheltenham Badlands, Olde Base Line Rd., Caledon, Ontario” (above, 2012)—actually, a composite of images taken over several seasons in the same precise spot. » RH Gallery, 137 Duane St., 646.490.6355, thru May 31

Diverse Vision Benny Andrews: There Must Be a Heaven encapsulates the range of styles practiced by the artist (1930-2006). Spanning five decades, some of the 36 paintings and collages offer stark, simple scenes out of his sharecropper childhood; others make grim social statements; and still others are cheerfully surreal, such as a view of a “Baptist Heaven (Human Spirit Series)” (below, 2000), complete with cornfields, pillowy clouds and banjos. » Michael Rosenfeld Gallery, 100 11th Ave., 212.247.0082, thru May 18

Found Objects

Let other artists play with abstraction. In Man at Work, painter César Galicia uses oils, acrylics and pure inks to create hyperrealistic still lifes, so rich in detail that—despite their documentarylike depiction, posed against a wall on a wood or metal shelf— they conjure a wealth of associations and memories. One glimpse of “New York Taxi Meters” (below, 2012), for example, will instantly transport Manhattanites of a certain age back into a mechanical past. » Forum Gallery, 730 Fifth Ave., 212.355.4545, thru May 31

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 photographer Martin Schoeller, painter Kim Dong Yoo, and a sneak peek into an upcoming exhibition with photographer Nick Brandt.

Kim Dong Yoo Installation view


Martin Schoeller is an internationally known German artist, best known for his hyper-detailed close up photographs of celebrities. Based in New York, his photographs appear in The New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Time, GQ, Esquire, and Vogue. Pictured below is an incredible portrait of Clint Eastwood, and other famous subjects available include Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Britney Spears, Brad Pitt, Jerry Seinfeld, Marc Jacobs, Tom Hanks, and Jon Bon Jovi, among others. Photographs range from $3,500 - $11,600.

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. An exhibition of Nick Brandt’s new photographs will open September 2013. Hasted Kraeutler is open to the public Tuesday - Saturday, 11 am - 6 pm.

Yes, Yes, Nobu … Sushi fit for an emperor in Midtown … country living in the Big Apple … an Upper East Side neighborhood spot offers some prime strip steak for your eating pleasure …

Steak Feast

Just because you are visiting Manhattan, it doesn’t mean you can’t also get a slice of rural life. County (above), a restaurant recently opened in New York’s sizzling-hot Flatiron District, offers barnyard aesthetics (walls and floors built with distressed barn sidings, shelves mimicking a country store with glass jars filled with candy, nuts and granola), and a hearty and wildly eclectic menu that combines traditional down-home offerings (country fry basket, ale-braised short ribs) with organic choices, international fare and charcuterie selections (mixed sausage and cheese plates, Swedish meatballs, vegetarian lasagna, baby schnitzel). The grilled spice-rubbed organic tofu is splendid, as is a light, buttery Dover sole and crunchy-sweet braised pork belly brûlée with sautéed butternut squash. You can elect to sit at one of the handsome square wood tables in the rear or opt for the more social communal high-tops up front, but either way, I reckon you will have one helluva good time. » County, 34 E.

Just a stone’s throw from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Parlor Steak- 20th St., 212.677.7771 house, on New York’s Upper East Side, is a worthy visit. The neighborhood restaurant was packed on a recent Monday night, with a democratic mixture of men and women (no typical-steak-house-testosterone-overload here). The décor is clean, modern and warm: Neutral tones, varnished wood floors and wellcushioned chairs set the stage for hefty eating. Despite the meat redundancy, meatball slider appetizers are rich miniature marvels; lump crab croquettes are stuffed with celery hearts and apple; and the steaks (left) are as tender and well-flavored as prime beef comes. I’ll have a seat in this parlor anytime. » Parlor Steakhouse, 1600 Third Ave., 212.423.5888

You mention the name Nobu to any serious foodie, and they will nod knowingly. Here in New York, the trio of spectacular, celebrity-frequented Japanese restaurants owned by “Nobu & Co.” includes Nobu Fifty Seven, the glamorous Midtown outpost of chef Nobu Matsuhisa. The restaurant dazzles, with dangling white frosted mussel shells and bamboo mats decorating ceilings and walls, but the real dazzler is the food: the sweet contrasting textures of sushi tacos, fluke sashimi with the crunch of dried red miso (above) and yellowtail sashimi, perfumed with citrus and ponzu flavorings.

Wild Things Flashing strobe lights. Thumping bass. Hoards of dance-crazy youths. Marquee New York (above), a recently remodeled Chelsea club, is where the wild things are (sorry, Maurice Sendak). Raucous revelers pulse to electro-beats underneath a titanic, spherical chandelier on the main dance floor, while VIPs hobnob in tableservice sections upstairs.

Featured are innovative concoctions by master mixologist Orson Salicetti, such as the Tomato-Basil Martini (cherry tomato, gin-infused basil, Lillet Blanc, agave, lime, habanero reduction with a Himalayan salt rim flambé), as well as his twists on traditional stalwarts, such as the Whiskey Sour (below, bourbon, scotch, Pimms, lime, winter bitters).

For the kids, there are ice cream pies and sundaes for dessert; and for mom and dad: Well, a hand-crafted beer, cocktail or glass of wine will only make that burger better. » Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, 220 W. 44th St., 646.532.4897

boasts 10 No. 1 singles, more than 26 million albums and downloads sold, over 29 million followers on Twitter and 68 million Facebook fans. To be sure, Pacific Palisades, Calif., where she lives, is a long way from Saint Michael, Barbados, where Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born Feb. 20, 1988, the first of three children of Ronald and Monica Fenty, who divorced when Rihanna was 14. As a girl, singing for a living never crossed her mind. “I used to sing at home, in the shower and in front of the mirror,” she recalls. “I did one talent show at my high school, and I won it by singing Mariah Carey’s ‘Hero.’” In 2003, she and two girlfriends landed an audition with New York-based producer Evan Rogers, who was vacationing in Barbados. Rogers, who had produced Christina Aguilera and Kelly Clarkson, arranged for Rihanna and her mother to come to New York to cut demo tapes. At 16, she moved to live with him and his wife in Connecticut and secured a deal with Def Jam Records. “When I left Barbados, I didn’t look back,” Rihanna insists. “I wanted to do what I had to do, even it meant moving to America.” She quickly proved she made the right move. Early hits “Umbrella” (2007) and “Take a Bow” (2008) presented an innocent persona, but soon a harder, decidedly sultry edge crept into kinetic dance tracks, such as 2008’s “Disturbia” and 2009’s “Rude Boy.” “Sometimes I like to be dark, other times I like to be really light and ladylike,” she reflects. It’s those ladylike moments—and her eye-catching, cutting-edge style—that have made the 5-foot-9-inch beauty the darling of fashion designers. Gucci and Cavalli have draped her in their creations, and, in February, she (and her personal stylist, Adam Selman) unveiled her own line of women’s clothing for British street-fashion brand River Island. Beyond the fashion houses of Seventh Avenue, girls

She started the Believe Foundation for underprivileged children, and has raised funds for leukemia treatments and bone marrow transplants. And yet, to some, her achievements have been obscured by her turbulent relationship with R&B star Chris Brown. The two had a violent breakup in 2009, but they’ve since reconciled and are moving forward together, both personally and professionally. Many were shocked when she released a remix of their duet “Birthday Cake” in 2012. Typically, Rihanna refuses to play the victim. “The amount of negative attention … caught me a little offguard,” she says. “I thought people would be surprised that we finally did a record together, but I didn’t see how people could think it was a bad thing. It was just music.” Similarly, she describes her new single, “Stay,” as “a story about having love that’s close and wanting it to last forever. I would definitely say that he [Chris] is the one I have that kind of relationship with.” Which leads naturally to the topic of future plans. “I will probably have a kid,” she says, “and I’ll have set some things up so I don’t have to tour for the rest of my life, even though I love touring.” She’s still busy conquering the world of entertainment, which includes hitting the hot spots not just in California, but in New York. She’s been seen having dinner at The Spotted Pig and at Da Silvano, hanging out at clubs like Griffin or the 40/40 Club and shopping at Barneys New York and Louis Vuitton. She’s also been known to jump onstage at Karaoke Cave to belt out Paramore’s “Misery Business” and Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats.” “I’m in a better place than I’ve ever been in my life,” she says. Yet despite her happiness, Rihanna can’t seem to rest easy. “I’m still in denial,” she says, “so I have to continue. I will not lose.” IN New YORK | may 2013 |

“New York minute” may be 45 seconds. But here, dinner hour can last all evening. New York’s nighttime meal is more than a meal, or even a social occasion—it’s entertainment. And the city’s great chefs are not just gifted cooks. They are inspired showmen, displaying their dramatic flair in culinary feats known as tasting menus. With courses that are typically smaller, but more numerous than those of standard prix fixes, these epicurean extravaganzas pilot a diner through a festive evening replete with exotic flavors, innovative dishes and optional, daring wine pairings. A cozy, brick-walled spot tucked into a brownstone near the American Museum of Natural History has become a foodie pilgrimage station. And like the museum’s famed dioramas, Dovetail (103 W. 77th St., 212.362.3800) showcases nature’s wonders. “We have an intense food culture here, with waves of trends and ideas,” marvels Dovetail’s top toque (and proprietor), John Fraser. “And whatever’s new and pure, I like to play up in my prix fixe tasting menu.” This American banquet comprises seven courses, “all compact but intense,” notes Executive Chef Fraser. Dishes can be as simple as a May vegetables consommé infused with ginger-vanilla essence, or as intricate as foie gras transformed to recall a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but with graham-cracker puree and huckleberry compote. “The tasting menu makes demands on both the kitchen and the diner, like a book of related short stories that you read with attention, and tie the ends together,” Fraser feels. “Chef’s tastings challenge my team to be at our best, and to take chances. On weekend nights, about half my diners are up for it. It’s an investment of time and stomach space.” The return on investment? “Pure pleasure.” If Fraser thinks of tasting menus in literary terms, Ben Pollinger, the skipper at seafood temple Oceana (120 W. 49th St., 212.759.5941) not surprisingly sees them “almost like a fishing trip. Oceana’s tasting menus are a journey for diners, and an adventure for my crew,” the executive chef says. While the kitchen offers à la carte options, “our cooks really get into our fivecourse tastings, because we can explore, improvise and create with what Mother Nature has brought us that day.” Seafood embellishes dishes like a spring vegetable and herb salad created for May’s tasting menu, for example. “Barely poached scallops have an ocean sweetness that embraces sugar snap peas,” Pollinger says. “It’s a wonderful discovery for the palate. And there’s a mint-basil crust on my halibut, which may sound strange, but it makes this tender white fish somehow earthy and meaty.” And

“A natural flow is the secret of a good tasting menu. It’s like reading a novel: One chapter should lead in to the next.”—Corton Chef/owner Paul Liebrandt were you expecting spring greens in your dessert? Executive Pastry Chef Joseph Gabriel makes it work in a tarragon and white chocolate ganache with a rhubarb tarragon sorbet. “You may be surprised at some of our tasting menus’ flavor combinations, but your taste buds will tell you they’re good,” says Pollinger. “My honest feeling? A tasting menu is a food tour, both in concept and for the senses. It’s a peak dining experience.” “Tasting menus are a voyage for the palate, a journey from high point to high point,” agrees Chef/owner Jesse Schenker of Recette (328 W. 12th St., 212.414.3000). His prix fixes, which complement à la carte choices, are like his restaurant: rustic yet refined, with savory, satisfying dishes that echo Recette’s cheerful view of tree-lined Greenwich Village streets. Schenker intends them to be “a complete experience: warm, inviting and personal,” he says. “And full of interesting tastes. I conceive my tasting menus as ingredient-driven, with distinctive, heightened flavors.” Patrons choose five-, seven- or 10-course menus, their set courses seasoned and sequenced by Chef Schenker “with definite diner input,” he says. “I serve things I think diners must try, but I listen when there are things they won’t.” His modern American dishes

are comprised of “only the best ingredients,” he relates. “Pure, rich ingredients like bone marrow, whole hamachi, soft-shell crab, spring lamb, sea urchin and Maine lobster,” which stars in a seafood “cassoulet” with chorizo. The second Monday of every month brings a special 10-course tasting menu served to only 20 diners, who are granted double table space in Recette’s dining room for 40.


hile Schenker’s tasting menus “can push the envelope,” as he cheerfully admits, Executive Chef Carmine Di Giovanni takes a different approach at Greenwich Project (47 W. 8th St., 212.253.9335), his third and newest restaurant housed in a vintage town house with a groundfloor cocktail parlor and a glamorous, chandelier-lit dining room upstairs. His four-course contemporary New American prix fixe is “not meant to intimidate or challenge the diner,” he says. “We are cooking for you, making familiar dishes, but with the extra zest and flair that only a chef can bring.” Ergo, mac ’n’ cheese flaunts Vacherin fromage from the Alps; Hudson Valley foie gras is layered with black truffles, parfait style; and “our spring lamb

It’s all tastings, all the time at Corton. Spring dishes include an opera cake, a confection of chocolate, coffee, banana and curry ice cream (above), and sayori, dried Japanese needlefish with a “head” of sea-salt cotton candy (below). IN New YORK | may 2013 |

has been aged 35 days, like a steak.” A more extensive seven-course “market menu” is tailored to farm-to-table acolytes. It spotlights early morning finds from the Union Square Greenmarket a few blocks away and ingredients that “are here today, gone tomorrow,” says Chef Di Giovanni. This time of the year, that might well mean soft-shell crabs, ramps and peas, but whatever the season, Greenwich Project’s tasting menus “always include dessert”—say, a chocolate mousse trio or a baba au rhum with tropical fruits. “I don’t approve of skipping dessert,” the chef states. Chinese food is nothing new to New Yorkers. Yet at stylish newcomer Hakkasan (311 W. 43rd St., 212.776.1818), International Development Chef Ho Chee Boon reports that Big Apple diners have taken to his fresh, lively Cantonese cuisine like a Peking duck to water. “Our tasting menu is served and enjoyed the traditional way Chinese people eat,” says Chef Ho. “Everything is cooked to come out of the kitchen at the same time, and is meant to be shared by the whole table. New Yorkers love it because the tradition here, too, is to taste everything and talk about it. And they appreciate the healthy, fresh ingredients that I use. That’s very Chinese, but also very American today.”Arranged in three courses, his dinner signature menus include 10 or 11 items—“which lets the kitchen show off the range of our techniques and ingredients”—and are intended for tables of 10 or more. But three-course prix fixes, supplemented IN New YORK | may 2013 |

by rice and pak choi, are offered at lunch and pre-theater, and Hakkasan waiters are delighted to help smaller parties or couples create their own tasting menus. Many patrons commence with a soup (such as lobster with yellow chive), and then progress to a “small eat” (dim sum, handmade in the kitchen like tiny artworks). Next, they choose an entrée, perhaps a stew like Hakka pork belly clay pot, or a noodle dish like curry-perfumed Singapore vermicelli with prawn and squid. For dessert, a sampling of macarons in exotic flavors such as yuzu, Sicilian pistachio or Earl Grey tea. Chef Ho jokes, “A French dessert in a Chinese kitchen in Times Square: What could be more New York?”


ew York’s tasting menu craze may stem in part from the popularity of fine Japanese cuisine, where tasting menus are a vaunted tradition, both in formal, kaiseki dinners (a progressively complex parade of seasonal treasures) and omakase meals, in which the chef sends out a succession of freshly prepared items at his discretion. Several tasting menus (along with à la carte items) are on offer at MEGU New York (62 Thomas St., 212.964.7777), anointed with a giant temple bell and ice Buddha statue, and MEGU Midtown (Trump World Tower, 845 United Nations Plaza, 212.964.7777), adorned with sleekly modern lamp pillars. The Osusume feast, a seven-course menu, accents sumiki aburiyaki, a grilling technique that employs a rare Japanese charcoal. Executive Chef Norito Shimura and his team apply this time-honored kitchen art to delicacies like king crab and Kobe beef, resulting in a delicate smokiness. The pre-theater menu showcases gindara, a Japanese black cod, gentled with yuzu and miso to create a tapestry of lush flavors and textures. Miso also has a starring role in a nine-course Umami tasting menu alongside other mouth-rich morsels, such as crispy okaki asparagus, which arrives in a tempura-style jacket of crushed rice crackers. “This is a visually thrilling dish,” notes Chef Shimura. “Fresh tastes are fundamental, but all the senses are involved in a Japanese tasting menu.” MEGU’s tasting menus all conclude with “Sweet Five,” a confectionery tasting in itself, a handcrafted glass platter bearing a quintet of desserts. “Pure indulgence,” remarks the chef. Down in TriBeCa, Chef/owner Paul Liebrandt indulges his diners with six- and nine-course tasting menus, the exclusive offering at serene Corton (239 W. Broadway, 212.219.2777). Liebrandt is a cerebral culinarian: He and his kitchen team “start with an idea for a dish, its identity. Each one should tell its own story and be a prequel to the next dish,” Liebrandt believes. “It’s like reading a novel: One chapter should lead in to the next. This natural flow is the secret of a good tasting menu.” This May, Corton’s clientele can expect a procession of refined foodstuffs “that speak of spring: ivory and gray morel mushrooms, crayfish, spring salmon, spring chickens, rabbit, rhubarb and sayori, a creamy, silky raw fish.” And for the finale of this refined repast, an opera cake, “dense with chocolate.” “For diners, a seasonal tasting menu is an intense, unique sensory experience,” says Oceana’s Ben Pollinger. “For chefs and cooks, it lets us break out of our routine. We show our stuff, share our excitement with our diners and have a creative adventure.” And isn’t that why you’ve come to New York?

One of the first “new” local beer makers, Brooklyn Brewery (left) makes a variety of traditional and customized stouts, ales and lagers, which can all be sampled in its Williamsburg tasting room. East Village bar Death & Co.’s Mortal Enemy cocktail (below) consists of crème de cacao, black currant cordial and Dorothy Parker American Gin (right), a spirit crafted by another Williamsburg producer, the New York Distilling Company.

Milwaukee makes Beer. Kentucky is known for bourbon. The Napa Valley produces wine. And New York City is famous for … all three. Well, maybe not famous, yet. But all over town, breweries, distilleries, wineries and even soda-pop makers are thriving and expanding, due to the popularity of locovore dining, craft cocktails, friendly legislation and the lofty dreams of small business people. By the time you read this, another small producer (or three) has probably launched. STILL LIFES Makers of spirits have a long history in New York, claims Allen Katz, co-founder of New York Distilling Company. The city’s—and perhaps the country’s—first distillery (of applejack, possibly) opened in 1640 on what is now Staten Island. Katz’s two-year-old operation is nestled in a warehouse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, adjacent to its bar The Shanty (79 Richardson St., 718.878.3579), a place with low, sexy lighting, dark wood and brick walls. Turn around and admire the gleaming twin-column stills and dual fermentation tanks in the next room, churning out what will become Dorothy Parker American Gin (floral and aromatic) and Perry’s Tot Navy Strength Gin (spicy and bracing, at 57 proof); tours on weekend afternoons provide

a closer look. The distillery’s gins are available at around 375 bars and restaurants around town, according to Katz, served neat or in artisanal cocktails such as those crafted at Death & Co. (433 E. 6th St., 212.388.0882), a shrouded but friendly speakeasy-style East Village haunt. While New York Distilling plays the gin game, Kings County Distillery specializes in brown spirits. The three-year-old distillery moved last year into new digs at the Brooklyn Navy Yard (63 Flushing Ave., Bldg. 121, Visitors are welcome (no reservations needed) every Saturday to the 114-yearold former Paymaster Building to tour the 7,200-square-foot facility, which ends at the Boozeum tasting room for samples of the distillery’s signature unaged corn liquor (a.k.a. moonshine), bourbon and brand-new chocolate-flavored whiskey, incorporating ground chocolate “husks” from Brooklyn’s Mast Brothers Chocolate factory. You’ll find Kings County’s bourbon and moonshine at The Modern (9 W. 53rd St., 212.333.1220) and whiskey mecca Ward III (111 Reade St., 212.240.9194). Although it conjures up images of Caribbean islands, “rum was really a Northeast spirit first,” insists Bridget Firtle, a hedgefund analyst turned distiller—and indeed, historians have found evidence of 16 New York City-area rum-makers in the 1720s. Their spiritual descendent is Firtle’s The Noble Experiment (23 IN New YORK | may 2013 |

Meadow St., East Williamsburg, Brooklyn, info@tneyc .com) that gives tours of its brick-walled space, with its gleaming copper column stills, and tastings on Saturdays. Despite having launched only in the past few months, The Noble Experiment’s first product, Owney’s Rum, has already landed behind the bar at The Rum House (228 W. 47th St., 646.490.5545) and stylish locovore brasserie Alison Eighteen (15 W. 18th St., 212.366.1818), where it stars in the Knickerbocker cocktail, along with dry curaçao, raspberries and lime. SUDSY SAGAS According to a recent New-York Historical Society Museum & Library exhibit, New York once boasted 48 breweries—a number that dropped to near zero with the advent of Prohibition, and stayed that way for over 50 years. Now, though, the beer-making scene is hopping. Best known is Brooklyn Brewery (79 N. 11th St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn, 718. 486.7422), at age 25 the oldest of the new breed. It offers tours every day but Friday, when it hosts a happy hour, featuring up to eight of its draft beers, bottled brews and a fresh cask of ale. At the other end of the city, and the age spectrum, is the year-and-a-half-old Bronx Brewery. Already reputed for its pale ales, it also pushes the flavor envelope with custom casks, such as ones for Monument Lane (103 Greenwich Ave., 212.255.0155) spiced with green, red and black peppercorns or blood oranges. Then there are brewpubs, which sell their own crafted suds. Heartland has seven locations around the city, offering up its beers with steaks, burgers and other pub grub. 508 GastroBrewery (508 Greenwich St., 212.219.2444), marries the rustic Mediterranean-American dishes of Chef/owner Jennifer Hill with an


in-house program crafted by brewer Chris Cuzme. The warm room, with its communal tables, mottled walls and ubiquitous candles, encourages conversation over a Saxual Healing Imperial Stout, Hamber Smoked Amber Ale or Beauty Booty Blonde Ale. Other restaurants and bars make a point of specializing in New York City brews. Newcomer Houston Hall (222 W. Houston St., 212.675.9323), located in a 112-year-old garage turned rustic beer hall, offers 10 exclusive beers on tap from Greenpoint Brew Works, a craft brewery in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, to accompany its grilled sandwiches and wontons. DBGB Kitchen and Bar (299 Bowery, 212.933.5300), a saloon/bistro owned by celebrated chef/restaurateur Daniel Boulud, specializes in handmade sausages and burgers—cuisine ideal for pairing with its many local brews, such as Sixpoints’ Crisp Lager or Bengali Tiger IPA, Bronx Brewery’s malty Pale Ale or Brooklyn Brewery’s dark and complex Black Ops Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout.

WINE TIME Wine production has less of a presence in New York than spirits or beer­—where do you plant the vines?—but it’s a growing phenomenon. While it may seem odd that NYC-based producers call themselves “wineries” when they don’t actually grow grapes, Craig Kayaian at Brooklyn Oenology Winery, or BOE (209 Wythe Ave., Williamsburg, Brooklyn, 718.599.1259) is quick to point out that France has a long history of vineyardfree wineries crafting quality products. “Our founder/winemaker, Alie Shaper, selects specific growing partners, specific lines and vines to work with,” says Kayaian. Blending grapes from Long Island’s North Fork and the Finger Lakes, Shaper tries to capture the essence of New York in her varietals, which are sold in more than 150 stores and restaurants around town (and beyond). They’re also available at BOE’s cozy Tasting Room and Gallery, already a neighborhood gathering place for its celebration of all things local: spirits, foodstuffs and artwork. One might not think of the once rough-and-tumble Red Hook neighborhood as a site for crushing, blending and aging grapes, but that’s exactly what Red Hook Winery (Pier 41, 325A, 175204 Van Dyke St., Brooklyn, 347.689.2432) has been doing since 2008. Its space feels equal parts Tuscan wine villa and NYC industrial chic, and daily tastings of its 70-odd rieslings, Chardonnays and merlots occur with an open-air view of the harbor. Most recently, fortified wines have appeared on the local scene. Uncouth Vermouth (produced in a corner of Red Hook Winery) offers up limited batches in flavors such as pear ginger and Serrano chile lavender, used to spark cocktails at Rouge Tomate (10 E. 60th St., 646.237.8977) or the new Hollywood-glam Harlow (Lombardy Hotel, 111 E 56th St., 212.935.6600).

TINY BUBBLES Teetotalers need not fret. New York is also the home to several artisanal soda producers, many pushing the boundaries of known flavors or reviving old-school recipes. GuS (Grown-Up Soda), a Manhattan-based label, focuses on full-flavored, not-overly-sweet beverages made with real juices and natural extracts. Its Dry Root Beer, Dry Pomegranate and Star Ruby Grapefruit drinks are found at gourmet groceries throughout the city, including Whole Foods Market (Time Warner Center, 10 Columbus Circle, 212.823.9600). Brooklyn’s P&H Soda Company specializes in handcrafted syrups in flavors such as cream, ginger, grapefruit and hibiscus, made from whole ingredients and carbonated on-site or in bars and restaurants. Their old-fashioned bottles add to the ambience at retro delis like Zucker’s Bagels & Smoked Fish (370 Lexington Ave., 212.661.1080). Restaurants devoted to local foodstuffs also often create their own drinks; one such is Rosemary’s (18 Greenwich Ave., 212.647.1818), where homemade pastas adorned with homegrown herbs can be washed down with fresh rosemary syrup-infused lemonade. “Producing locally, despite high costs, ties into the same reason that New York City is the epicenter for a lot of things,” says Tobin Ludwig, co-founder of Brooklyn-based Hella Bitter, whose wares flavor cocktails at chic eateries such as The Red Cat (227 10th Ave., 212.242.0199). “There’s a demand for everything here, no matter the niche.” IN New YORK | may 2013 |

Discovering a Distinguished District BY SANDRA ISKANDER


ocated in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, Place Vendôme is a grandiose square featuring the original Vendôme Column in the centre, which was erected by Napoleon I to commemorate the battle of Austerlitz. Today the square is encircled by upscale jewellery boutiques including Dior, Van Cleef & Arpels and Chopard. Just a little bit further down from this magnificent square is Palais Garnier, the sumptuous opera house. Inaugurated in 1875, the Palais Garnier was designed by Charles Garnier and was designed in the NeoBaroque style. Boasting 1600 seats, the opera house is not only considered a place of art but also an architectural masterpiece. Not too far from this breathtaking square, located off Place de la Concorde, is Jardin des Tuileries, a magnificent public garden, originally designed by Catherine de Médicis, the Queen consort of France, wife of King Henry II, in 1564 when she had the Tuileries Palace built. The design of the Tuileries now centres on an avenue that extends to the Louvre

museum with the garden featuring a superb collection of statues including 18 works by Maillol as well as works by Coustou and Rodin. The gardens are where many fashion shows are held during the prestigious Paris Fashion Week, while funfairs are organised during the summer for children. Parallel to the gardens on the Right Bank, exuding exclusivity, you will discover rue Saint Honoré and rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, the home to some of the world’s most luxurious fashion brands. It is here you will find the iconic Hermès boutique, the house renowned for exquisite craftsmanship and of course the Kelly and Birkin bags. Standing tall across from Hermes is Cartier, the fine jewellery and watch manufacturer that King Edward VII honoured in 1904 with the Royal warrant of supplier to the Royal Court of England. Colette, Paris’s original multi-brand store is also here. Popular with fashionistas and trendsetters, Colette is the place for limited edition fashion items and eclectic pieces.

Dashing Dining Foodie friends, restaurant critics, guides galore—there are numerous tools to assist the hungry in New York City. But perhaps the one of the best tickets to a memorable meal is Ela Orosova, a concierge at the Smyth TriBeCa. She’s certainly done her homework on local restaurants and is happy to lead the journey to dining bliss—with her own spin. “Most guests are interested in the trendiest, newest restaurants with celebrity chefs, but some are simply looking for tasty food with a good atmosphere. Luckily, we have a lot of great restaurants in TriBeCa.” One such is Atera, a Michelin two-star establishment. “It only has two seatings each night. Go on an empty stomach, so you can fully enjoy the 22-course tasting menu, which includes unusual edibles from the forest,” Orosova says. She also has recommendations for those looking for an equally gourmet, but late-night experience. “Ward III was opened by three guys. There’s no sign outside, so you can only use the address to find it. Drinks are customized for each patron. You must try the bacon-wrapped dates.” Despite her devotion TIPS FROM: to the ‘hood, her favorite meal in the city hails from Ela Orosova, Concierge, Smyth Kin Shop in the West Village. “The Spicy Duck Laab TriBeCa, a Thompson Salad, with toasted rice, ground chili and romaine Hotel, 85 W.
