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.” Always “moving in close” he never uses a telephoto lens, because it is too impersonal. Prices of the photographs start at $5,000. Hasted Kraeutler is open to the public Tuesday Saturday, 11 am - 6 pm. and by appointment.

In March, Cher was beside herself and took to Twitter to explain why: Her favorite designer of more than four decades, Bob Mackie, would not be decking her out in typically outrageous fashion on her Dressed to Kill tour. “I’m crying,” the Oscar, Emmy and Grammy winner tweeted. Luckily, designer Hugh Durrant was waiting in the wings, ready to transform her into an Indian princess, gilded gladiatrix, plumed peacock, biker chick, you name it. Truth is, no matter what the agedefying diva and lately queen of the dance-club charts is (or is barely) wearing onstage, audiences disco in the aisles. | Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Ave., Brooklyn, 800.745.3000, May 9

Benjamin Millepied

“Most of my dances are an emotional response to music.”—

Benjamin Millepied, choreographer of New York City Ballet’s “Two Hearts”

In Brief • Behind the mask: On May 12, Norm Lewis becomes the first AfricanAmerican actor to star as the Phantom on Broadway. | The Phantom of the Opera, Majestic Theatre, 247 W. 44th St., 212.239.6200 • Cultural detente: The Vakhtangov State Academic Theatre of Russia presents the United States premiere of Eugene Onegin, an original play with music based on Alexander Pushkin’s novel in verse. Performed in Russian with English titles. | Eugene Onegin, New York City Center, 131 W. 55th St., 212.581.1212, May 29-Jun. 1 Eugene Onegin

“Everything is heightened, so the clothes are all a little too sexy,” says designer Amy Clark, speaking about her costumes for Off-Broadway’s Heathers: The Musical, based on the cult 1989 high school movie. “We definitely do the ‘80s shoulder pads, the silhouette, the hair, the scrunchies, but the skirts are absurdly short to the point they’re not realistic. For me, it was important to push the fact that this is a theatrical, exaggerated world.” For more about the sex appeal of Amy Clark’s costumes for Heathers, go to | Heathers: The Musical, New World Stages, Stage 1, 340 W. 50th St., 212.239.6200

the after-dark scene by William G. Frierson IV

Behind Locked Doors If pop culture is any indicator, the only people who step foot in high-security vaults are bankers and bandits. At Lower Manhattan’s Trinity Place, you get to sip classy cocktails in a historic money hideaway—without the risk of setting off any alarms. You won’t clash with the fuzz, but you’ll likely leave with a buzz. | Trinity Place, 115 Broadway, 212.964.0939

Two of Spain’s finest cultural exports converge at TriBeCa’s Tablao: sangria and flamenco dancing. The fruity wine drink comes in three variations—red, white and cava (a bubbly twist on the staple)—and is sipped from oversize goblets, apples floating in the drunken sea like lost remnants of the Spanish Armada. Live folk performers stomp on a small wooden stage (Wed. & Fri., 7-10 p.m.), as a matador, posing in his ceremonial best in a nearby portrait, surveys the electric dining room (with a feel more Euro discotheque than Old Spain). Add tapas to the mix, and todo está perfecto. | Tablao, 361 Greenwich St., 212.334.4043

Meatballs and ... Cocktails? The Meatball Shop makes good meatballs. We already knew that. But it’s started the (meat)ball rolling on a new boozy venture: Underballs. The newest Chelsea location of the popular NYC chain comes equipped with a subterranean bar, serving a special menu of the scrumptious namesake orbs (think: bratwurst blend in a beer-infused mustard sauce) with locavore cocktails (Moscow Mule with Brooklyn Republic vodka) and “shop specialties” (care for a whiskey float?). Ball-tastic. | Underballs at The Meatball Shop, 200 Ninth Ave., 212.257.4363 for a bigger swig, go to

Leaves of Grass Vetiver is an exotic grass known for its deeply fragrant roots. Creed, the Ango-French perfumer, has developed a scent using the leaves of this Haitian grass, combined with ginger, mandarin, sandalwood, iris and musk, for its new unisex cologne. The fragrance is available at the Creed Boutique, the only freestanding Creed store in North America. | Creed Boutique, 794 Madison Ave., 212.439.7777

Items like the canvas Swiss medic bag (left), which is a replica of a vintage military surplus bag, are for sale, and a complimentary espresso bar encourages customers to linger. The company, which prides itself on leather goods of exceptional quality, also has a conscience: Its social responsibility initiatives include Give Will, a program that donates backpacks to students in low-income public schools; a commitment to only using naturally felled trees for their products; eco pillows to stuff bags instead of paper; and eco-friendly leather, which is vegetable tanned using tree bark, moss and roots. | Will Leather Goods, 29 Prince St., 877.467.0436

fascinating museum displays by William G. Frierson IV and Joni Sweet

NYC is built—literally—on the diversity of its residents. Spanish immigrants Rafael Guastavino and his son drew from a centuries-old Mediterranean technique—thin-tile structural vaulting—to construct many architectural landmarks, including the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine (right). Palaces for the People goes beyond the structures’ elegant aesthetics to study their lightweight, fireproof and load-bearing qualities. —J.S. | Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Ave., 212.534.1672, thru Sept. 7

Kodak Moment Photography has inspired other artistic mediums since its inception more than 150 years ago. With the digital age making snapshots more ubiquitous than ever, the craft continues to influence contemporary designs, such as this ring by artist Martin Papcún. The Museum of Arts and Design explores this creative interplay in Multiple Exposures.—J.S. | Museum of Arts and Design, 2 Columbus Circle, 212.299.7777, May 13-Sept. 14

For more on new museum exhibits, go to:

Japanese Rarities Light is shed on 2,000 years of art from the Land of the Rising Sun in Points of Departure: Treasures of Japan From the Brooklyn Museum. The exhibition focuses on 70 lesser studied artifacts—displayed by region, a departure from the Kyoto/Tokyo-centric approach of many exhibits—from a silk and cotton ceremonial robe from Northern Japan’s Ainu culture to precious beaded jewelry.—W.F. | Japan Society Gallery, 333 E. 47th St., 212.832.1155, thru Jun. 8


Take a Photo Photography may freeze moments in time, but the way a viewer interprets such snapshots is far from constant. A Collective Invention: Photographs at Play, the debut of the medium as a curatorial focus at The Morgan Library, looks at the many ways of interpreting images through groupings of some 80 works, including Keith Smith’s “Head Movements” (1966).—W.F. | The Morgan Library & Museum, 225 Madison Ave., 212.685.0008, thru May 18

A Class


Marcus Samuelsson of Red Rooster, one of the hottest eateries in town, talks about life in the Celebrity Chef world.

by micki siegel

Chef Marcus Samuelsson has enough accomplishments under his toque to make anyone’s head spin. To name just a few: A year after taking over as executive chef at restaurant Aquavit, the city’s premier Scandanavian restaurant, 24-year-old Samuelsson became the youngest chef ever to receive a three-star review from The New York Times. He’s the recipient of six prestigious James Beard awards. He was the guest chef at President Obama’s first White House state dinner. He’s published three books, with Yes, Chef: A Memoir (Random House) the most recent and another due out this fall from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. He’s appeared on too many TV food shows to count—Top Chef, Chopped and The Taste, among them. His Red Rooster Harlem restaurant remains one of the hottest reservations in town. And, on top of all that, he’s happily married to model Maya Haile. He recently talked to IN New York about Harlem, the challenges of being a superstar chef and the cooking inspiration that he got from his grandmother. Is it true, that when you and your sister first arrived in Sweden, some of your neighbors didn’t understand why the Samuelssons had adopted two children from Ethiopia? Yes. It was a long time ago, so having a mul-

ticultural family was obviously abnormal. But we felt it was perfectly normal because that was how we were. I always felt an incredible amount of love from my parents. My mother always said it was sometimes hard for her to find a cultural foothold. She even had to learn how to do black hair! Cultural missteps—we laughed, we knew it wasn’t perfect but that was our family. And that became the fun part. A multicultural


background can be a huge advantage—because you understand so many different viewpoints. Your grandmother influenced you to be a chef? Yes, it

started with inspiration from her. But I went to France and also traveled all over the world, and that inspired me to do more. I’ve never been more excited to be in the industry than now. I like to think that’s what comes from staying curious. I never in my world could dream that I would be on TV. It’s been an incredible ride that I’m very grateful to have been part of. How difficult was it to work your way up to executive chef at Aquavit? When I started to work at Aquavit,

there weren’t a lot of black chef role models. People didn’t know what to think about me. I thought that was fine, as long as they were ready to taste and stay open-minded. Those challenges about race and my capability have always been there, but I felt comfortable because I knew that, if someone would give me the chance, I would do very, very well. Today, you own Red Rooster Harlem on Lenox Avenue, Ginny’s Supper Club (just down the stairs from Red Rooster), American Table Cafe and Bar at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and more restaurants elsewhere. You opened Red Rooster in 2010, and it became hugely successful almost immediately. How did that happen? We really stood on the legs of the com-

munity to get here. When people all over the world think about Harlem, they think about food and music. And that’s what I wanted to preserve. Music in all its forms—whether it’s gospel from the church or music at the Apollo [Theater]. So, it was very important to

me to not just open a restaurant but a place that represented Harlem. The combination of great food, service and also presenting music was key. The original Red Rooster Harlem was a speakeasy. They always had politicians, musicians, artists. And I wanted to continue that. Did success come easily to you? No, it was very

hard. But what’s easy? With a hard journey, you become very good at something. I love my craft, so the fact that I have to work hard for it, that’s nothing. I would be doing this whether or not I got paid. It’s been a very long battle, but it’s also been incredible. I constantly put myself in situations where I’m challenged. My challenge today, running Red Rooster Harlem, is different from the challenge when I was 26 or 27. But I gladly take that on. I think the key is to

always be curious. I was the same when I was 10 years old and cooking with my grandmother. I read that you feel like you grew up in New York. What are some favorite places when you get some downtime?

I love the whole city. For me, there’s always Central Park. When I didn’t have any money, I knew I could go to Central Park and Rollerblade and play soccer. I also love going out to Brooklyn to Roberta’s in Bushwick for pizza. And I love the fact that the core of hip-hop and graffiti comes from the Bronx. On Sundays, I try to bike all over Harlem and get some good food and listen to some great jazz. And then, maybe in spring, watch some basketball being played in the street. A bike is a great way to see the city because it’s not so fast and you can stop and interact with people. IN New YORK | may 2014 |

What’s the flavor of the month in NYC restaurants? Chefs are cooking up trends meant to last, pushing the envelope this way and that for creative, surprising dishes that kick-start your palate. By Karen Tina Harrison Photography by Christopher Villano IN New YORK | may 2014 |

New York is one giant trend laboratory: You see it, hear it, try it on—and taste it first here."New York is a kaleidoscope of world cuisines and an incubator of restaurant trends,” says NYC-based French superchef Daniel Boulud. Here, some leading New York chefs and restaurateurs talk about the citywide dining trends that they foresee and help cook up.

Notes Jonathan Benno of Lincoln Ristorante: “Our chefs dig deep into the region’s traditions: Right now, we’re in the Veneto of Northern Italy.”

DALE TALDE CHEF PARTNER, TALDE 369 Seventh Ave., Park Slope, Brooklyn 347.916.0031 Chicago-raised Dale Talde’s three laidback eateries in progressive, family-fo-

cused Park Slope have become draws due not to Talde’s Top Chef stint, but his unique brand of fusion cuisine. Global Gourmets “It’s a cliché to call New York a melting pot, but that’s so true now with chefs. First-generation chefs whose families are from Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe: We’re bringing the flavors of our cultures and adding real Brooklyn creativity. My heritage is Filipino, and I’ve got a Filipino ‘kare-kare’ peanut-sauced stew on the menu with short ribs, Hong Kong noodles and Thai chile relish. I do my kung pao chicken with wings, very American, and a miso salmon with salsa verde. Brooklyn Fusion!” Fashionable Fruit “New York chefs are ready to break rules: Do vegetables have to be a side dish? What about fruit in the main course? I love fruity flavors where you don’t expect them. Persimmon in my kale salad, yuzu guacamole that’s made with the Japanese citrus fruit, pickled cranberries with grilled local calamari, grapes with my Korean fried chicken.” Ban The H-Word “As a Brooklyn chef, I want to correct that overused word to describe our borough’s restaurants: hipster. No. You will find some first-class service and atmosphere here. My servers wear white aprons; my diners are the ones who relax at Talde.”

JONATHAN BENNO EXECUTIVE CHEF, LINCOLN RISTORANTE 142 W. 65th St. at Lincoln Center 212.359.6500 For Jonathan Benno, formerly the chef de cuisine at Per Se, helming his own kitchen is a dream come true. Regional Focus “I’m seeing restaurants devoted to the cuisine of one country exploring its different regions on their menu. I've seen it at French and Italian restaurants. At Lincoln, we spotlight a region of Italy every quarter in our à la carte menu, desserts and cheeses. Right now at Lincoln, we’re in the Veneto of Northern Italy. I pair my grilled prawns with red radicchio di Treviso, which is grown only in that part of the Veneto.”

Salumeria “It’s not just that chefs are


dishes that are a spin on the Italian family dinner at nonna’s (grandma’s). Diners love the big Caesar salad that I do with escarole kale, white anchovies and pecorino cheese; and also a pasta dish that I grew up with, a ragu Napolitano, a Naples red sauce, with house-made rigatoni and four meats braised in tomato sauce.”

getting whole animals delivered to their kitchens, they’re fearless about making salumeria and charcuterie. Here at Lincoln, we go whole hog, beyond bacon, pancetta and pork belly. For adventurous diners who want to try sanguinaccio blood sausage, ’Nduja spreadable sausage and coppa di testa head cheese, they’re on my menu ready to surprise you.” Sunday Supper “I think the concept behind our Sunday supper is going to be big. Every Sunday from 5 p.m. on, we offer large-format, or family-style

The Peacock and the Shakespeare is an upstairs-downstairs British affair: a cozy, refined pub on the ground floor, with an upstairs dining room serving English classics. Supper Club Meets Pub “I consider Manhattan’s supper clubs of the ’40s and '50s a glamorous version of English pubs. I think the ideal now is a convivial spot like a pub with the sophisticated, destination feeling of a glamorous supper club.” Comfort Table “In New York and London, we talk about comfort food, but what it comes down to is food that people want to eat every day, to relax with. I do my cottage pie with longbraised short ribs rather than ground meat and a puff pastry rather than a bed of mashed potatoes.” Bars For All “In New York, we're seeing counter dining everywhere and bars for specialized food and drink: rice bars, ramen bars, sake bars. I like to think that anything with a counter had an English pub like the Shakespeare for its inspiration.” Dessert Oasis “New York restaurants are hothouses of dessert trends. You never know what exotic flavors are going to show up: I’m partial to Earl Grey infusions, and sticky toffee pudding, made with dates and bananas.” Beer Pairings “New Yorkers drink everything with dinner courses, so why not beer and cocktail pairings along with wine pairings? At the Peacock, we suggest beers for each course.”

MARISA MAY CO-OWNER, SD26 19 E. 26th St., 212.265.5959 Marisa May and dad Tony May, pillars of the NYC dining establishment, preside over SD26, a bastion of modern, pan-Italian cuisine. Modern Custom Dining “Restaurants are catching up to the high-tech lifestyle. At SD26, we’re leading the way with our thousand-bottle wine list on an iPad and Wi-Fi everywhere. Wherever we can, we use natural and recycled materials. We have our purified water in glass bottles and we’re working on Earth-friendly take-out

containers. We also have outdoor dining, a chef’s table, a wine bar, wine cellar and a lounge, plus private and semiprivate dining rooms. Plus: New Yorkers always want dinner, but maybe not a full dinner. At SD26, we offer every dish on the menu (except dessert) in a half or full portion. It’s a good way to assemble your own tasting menu.” Smoke “Adding a smoking step to your food is a big trend, but often the flavor overwhelms the dish. I love just a hint of smoky flavor, like in our spaghetto quadrato ‘La Molisana’ with Manila clams and applewood smoke. It arrives under a glass dome that is

Marisa May of SD26 advocates high-tech dining; eco-friendly environs; and plenty of choices for diners, from the type of table they sit at to what portion size they prefer.

whisked off at the table, adding fragrant smoke and drama to the meal.”

GAVIN KAYSEN EXECUTIVE CHEF, Café BOULUD 20 E. 76th St., 212.772.2600

Friendly French “We want to surprise diners with our style of French restaurant. We keep things interesting by offering the French food you loved when you visited Paris along with classics like fried chicken (with four sauces!), and intriguing new things on our ‘Le Voyage’ (travel) section of the menu, like a Brazilian shrimp and coconut moqueca stew. We run lots of specials, including a daily ‘large format’ dish for the whole table to share, such as a veal shank or côte de boeuf. Diners are meant to dig into the dish and feel like a family catching up together, which is what dinner in France is like.” Garden Party “Everyone talks about the new vegetable cuisine, but every French chef traditionally cultivates a potager, which is a kitchen garden. Here we have a whole menu section called ‘Le Potager.’ I promise you that my whole roasted cauliflower head is the new pork belly.” Salad Days “Diners’ expectations of salad are changing. It doesn’t have to be a bowl of green leaves. I do a spring garden salad with grilled baby zucchini, confit onion, carrots and radishes, toasted grain and more. It’s clean, colorful and makes you feel good. That’s the kind of salad I want to see.”

Make It Fun “You eat with your eyes first, so we always like to have fun with our presentation, whether it's marrow bones arranged to look primeval, or a big lobster hanging off the plate in our surf and turf for two.” Cheesecake Is Cheesy “I wanted to break the mold of traditional steakhouse desserts and offer unique choices. Even after a big steak, diners want to try my Cracker Jack sundae and carbomb bread pudding desserts. But if you want cheesecake or chocolate cake, I have that, too. American Cut is, after all, a steak house!”

DESSERT OASIS The Peacock and the Shakespeare’s sticky toffee pudding, a true English pub classic.

MARC FORGIONE EXECUTIVE CHEF, AMERICAN CUT 363 Greenwich St., 212.226.4736 Marc Forgione is a firm believer in the ingredients being the star of his restaurant. He also believes steaks should be big, presentations should be fun and steakhouse desserts surprising. Major Meat “Steak houses have experimented with making meat dainty. But meat is a primal pleasure. I love it when big groups come and share a variety of steaks, and I always like the big cuts, like porterhouse and tomahawk. I think they’re coming back.”

spirits forward

We've got restaurants around the city serving only macaroni & cheese or peanut butter & jelly, so it makes sense specialty bars exist focusing on one kind of spirit. Superfans of bourbon, whiskey or gin can often find more expressions of their favorite spirits under one roof than they ever dreamed existed. By Robert Haynes-Peterson Photography by Noah Fecks 34

Shaken or stirred: At Gin Palace, head bartender Chaim Dauermann creates a cocktail from your choice of over 75 products, hailing from Brooklyn to San Francisco to France.

Whiskey River

So-called “brown spirits” have enjoyed a massive resurgence in popularity in the past few years as patrons have rediscovered pre-Prohibition era cocktails and high-end “investment grade” whiskeys. “A decade ago, no one came to my tastings; only old golfers,” says Heather Greene, whiskey sommelier at The Flatiron Room (37 W. 26th St., 212.725.3860) and former brand ambassador for Glenfiddich. “Today, my monthly whiskey classes are sold out, and all demographics are represented.” The two-year-old, dimly lit, two-story venue—punctuated by a dramatic red velvet curtain behind a small stage featuring nightly jazz—is home to almost 750 whiskey expressions (along with American cuisine from Chef Susan Burdian). The extensive menu is organized by region (“Speyside,” “American Bourbons,” “Japanese Whiskeys”), and also includes a substantial selection of whiskey-based cocktails. Still can't decide? Consider one of seven flights, ranging IN New YORK | may 2014 |

0514_IN_F_Drinks.indd 35


4/10/14 10:25:15 AM

from $40 for a sampler of six bourbons to $950 for a “Dream Flight,” featuring six notable single malts like the Glenrothes 42-year and the Balvenie 40-year. While Flatiron is in no way fussy, the more relaxed American Whiskey (247 W. 30th St., 212.967.1070) surprises: Five flat screens behind a 50-foot-long main bar and stuffed bison heads hanging on the opposite wall won’t clue you in immediately to the 250-deep whiskey menu. There, you’ll find an emphasis on bourbon, rye and other American whiskeys. On the menu, spirits are organized by character, like “Light & Floral” (Eagle Rare 10-year-old) or “Hot and Spicy” (Four Roses Small Batch), and served as either one- or two-ounce pours. Once you’ve whet your palate, move on to Barley & Grain (421 Amsterdam Ave., 646.360.3231), where you’ll enjoy more than 36 different single malts and 48 American whiskeys along with a whiskey-themed steak-and-burger menu. Leave Rochelle Out of It (205 Chrystie St, 212.673.2400)—named for the owners’ ex-girlfriend—presents the laid-back, social vibe appropriate to the Lower East Side, but is serious about its list of 100plus whiskeys, including trend-forward Japanese labels. In

Astoria, Queens, you’ll find the barbecue, craft brew and whiskey mecca The Strand Smokehouse (25-27 Broadway, 718.440.3231). In addition to the usual suspects, you’ll also find bourbons and ryes continuing to age in barrels above the bar, ready to be tapped.

Gin and Juice

Gin has long been an overlooked spirit, but no more. Gin Palace (95 Ave. A, 212.614.6818) is tucked inconspicuously between East Village bars Amor Y Amargo (bitters-focused) and Cienfuegos (rum cocktails and punches). While the black vinyl-padded banquettes and Art Deco-themed back bar mirror are retro, the gin program here is anything but. Listing over 70 products hailing from France (Citadelle), Brooklyn (Greenhook), San Francisco (Junipero) and England (Sipsmith) means an endless combination of botanical influences in your cocktail, from fullon juniper to floral grape notes. A tap pours carbonated gin and tonics featuring one of four housemade tonics. Walk past an unassuming pastry counter to the unmarked door, and find yourself entering the seductive speakeasy Bathtub

Gin (132 Ninth Ave., 646.559.1671). Illicitly dark, with ornate Art Nouveau wallpaper, a pressed copper ceiling and a clawfoot tub, this spot features an array of classic cocktails, live music, tasty menu items and over 30 different gins, including the hardto-find Nolet’s Reserve Dry Gin ($44 for a oneounce pour), dubbed “the Ultimate Sipping Gin.”

Russian Revolution

Sink into a comfy leather chair at Rarities and enjoy a glass of vintage Madeira; some Madeiras here date back to the 19th century.

While most vodka-heavy bars focus on quirky candy flavors and giant party drinks, the new contemporary Russian-themed restaurant Ariana SoHo (138-140 W. Houston St., 646.678.4334) takes its clear spirits seriously. The 2,000-squarefoot restaurant somehow successfully merges gold curtains and glittering chandeliers with hunting-lodge-inspired wood floors, a gas fireplace and sturdy chairs. To complement culinary options like lobster stuffed with cabbage or a country pâté with cranberry-rye crostini, Beverage Director Orson Salicetti has created a seasonally updated vodka cocktail menu with sweet and savory options, such as the refreshing petite (vodka, green grapes, elderflower liqueur, hibiscus elixir, lime juice and soda), or the over-the-top caviar martini featuring Beluga Gold vodka and a frozen caviar “lollipop” ($56). Ariana’s marble-topped Craft Vodka Bar features around 30 vodkas, including innovative labels distilled from honey, beets and quinoa, and several aged for six to eight weeks in small oak barrels to help round the technically neutral spirit and give it more character.

Fine & Rare

Perhaps it's not a specific after-dinner drink you crave, but the best of the best. Thanks to the opening of the ornate 25-seat salon Rarities, inside the newly renovated New York Palace (455 Madison Ave., 800.697.2522), your hunt just got easier. The reservations-only hideout features rare cognacs, Champagnes, whiskeys, tequilas and more, some dating back to the 1850s. Ease into a leather club chair and enjoy an 1875 Barbeito Madeira ($200 a glass), a 1918 Darroze Château la Brise Bas-Armagnac ($6,245 a bottle) or a 1912 Hannisville Rye (stashed during Prohibition, $175 for a two-ounce pour) from the constantly updated menu. Seeking more vintage digestifs? Pouring Ribbons (225 Ave. B, 917.656.6788) carries around 17 expressions of herbaceous French Chartreuse dating as far back as 1951.

And So On

Agave aficionados might consider La Biblioteca, inside the Latin-Asian fusion restaurant Zegna (622 Third Ave., 212.808.8110), where “tequila librarian” Stephanie Weber can walk you through the bar’s 400 agave-based spirits. Or, try Mayahuel in the East Village (304 E. 6th St., 212.253.5888), where the staff guides you through a list emphasizing over 40 hard-to-find mezcals (tequila’s smoky cousin) along with dozens of tequilas, and to tasting flights geared to match your taste. Sake, now seemingly ubiquitous, is so much more than a replacement for cheap beer at sushi joints. Sake fans ought not to miss the curated selections at Morimoto (88 10th Ave.,

212.989.8883), the Iron Chef's West Chelsea restaurant. You’ll find over 20 different sakes, and you can select from the signature Morimoto Sake Collection: junmai, ginjo and daiginjo options brewed to Chef's exacting specifications at the 400-yearold Fukumitsuya Brewery. Or, opt for koshu or aged sake—an ancient tradition only now being rediscovered—like the tawnycolored Morimoto 10-Year ($32 for a two-ounce glass). Morimoto isn’t the only fine dining establishment in town paying attention to its sake menu. Sakagura (211 E. 43rd St., 212.953.7253), a charming sushi mainstay, boasts over 200 sakes and shochus (sake is brewed, shochu distilled). EN Japanese Brasserie (435 Hudson St., 212.647.9196) offers tasting flights from some of the most respected sake breweries in Japan. If you’d rather go and check out a friendly dive, head to Decibel (240 E. 9th St., 212.979.2733). The no-frills subterranean bar (identified outside by a flashing “On Air” sign) carries nearly 100 different sakes and shochus, paired with innovative dumplings and other small bites. The list of specialty bars continues to the obscure. Thanks to the Intercontinental Barclay Bar & Grill (111 E. 48th St., 212.755.5900), you’ll discover the city’s only Calvados bar. The distinctive apple brandy out of Normandy, France, is well represented with nearly 100 different styles, along with tasting flights and cocktails. And while interest in absinthe may have cooled a bit, Maison Premiere in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (298 Bedford Ave., 347.335.0446), celebrates the Belle Epoque allure of the “green fairy.” With 22 labels from Europe and the U.S., and an absinthe-inflected cocktail menu, the vintage New Orleansthemed oyster den will be inspiring artists for years to come.

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


Park With a Heart Sometimes referred to as “the other park” (Central Park being the first one), Riverside Park, located along the Hudson River from W. 72nd St. to W. 125th St. (with arguably the best views of the Hudson), is well worth a visit. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed Central Park, the space includes the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument, Grant’s Tomb and the Eleanor Roosevelt Monument. The most touching tribute: The Amiable Child Monument, which commemorates a 5-year-old boy who died in 1797 at what was then a nearby country home.

million—that’s how many times underground Wi-Fi service was used last year in the city’s subways.

Brooklyn Eats Brooklyn is known for many things besides being the fourth-largest city in the United States (were it a city): It is also known for some of the citys’ most beloved eats. In Sarah Zorn’s Brooklyn Chef’s Table (Globe Pequot Press), you’ll find recipes that include smoked whitefish chowder, sweet pickle slaw and a butter beer egg cream.

From Shore to Ship The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is a one-of-a-kind experience, a museum perched aboard a 900-foot-long aircraft carrier docked in the Hudson River. The outdoor flight deck (above) showcases a range of military aircrafts, including helicopters, fighter jets and an A-12 Blackbird spy plane.

“When it’s 100 degrees in New York, it’s 72 degrees in Los Angeles. When it’s 30 degrees in New York, in Los Angeles it’s still 72. However, there are six million interesting people in New York and only 72 in Los Angeles.”—Neil Simon 92
