Romeo in Bloom by brian scott lipton

Known for his roles in such blockbuster films as Pirates of the Caribbean, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Orlando Bloom now moves stage left, to Broadway.


Keeping It Hot by brian scott lipton

In a town where restaurants flame out as quickly as they first sizzled, these restaurants stand the test of time—still hot, still standing.


Our Favorite Things The editorial and art department staffers of IN New York share the wish lists they’ll be giving to Santa this year.


On the Cover

29 Orlando Bloom takes to the Great White Way in his own, modernist version of Romeo, playing opposite Condola Rashad‘s Juliet in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.

skyline Light Source An Amazon (left), created by artist Alison Saar, looms over the first section of choreographer Garth Fagan’s seminal Lighthouse/Lightning Rod, performed by Fagan’s troupe, now in its 43rd season, to a score composed by Wynton Marsalis. (For more on Marsalis’ busy November, see opposite page.) Symbolically, the sculpture stands for the lighthouse in the work’s title. “Lighthouses help people in rough seas,” Fagan has said. “[Saar] came up with a lighthouse that is the most beautiful 18-foot-tall woman, with branches extending from her hair. It’s unlike any lighthouse you’ve ever seen.” » Garth Fagan Dance, Joyce Theater, 175 Eighth Ave., 212.242.0800, Nov. 12-17

Horn of Plenty Protean musician Wynton Marsalis (below) transitions from jazz baby to Broadway baby this month. First up is the Nov. 3 opening night of After Midnight, a musical celebrating Duke Ellington’s years at Harlem’s Cotton Club and featuring his original Jazz Age orchestrations performed by a big band of 17 musicians selected by Marsalis, the show’s musical director. Ten days later, A Bed and a Chair: A New York Love Affair, Marsalis’ collaboration with composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim, starring Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters, premieres. With a roster of A-list talents like these, is it any wonder prognosticators forecast a life for the piece beyond the limited engagement? » After Midnight,

hot happenings around town

Shock Value Where the ashes of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center once fell, a majestic memorial of two waterfalls now commemorates the lives lost on 9/11. Nearby, a new skyscraper, One World Trade Center, rises a symbolic 1,776 feet in the air. But if contemporary (and iconoclastic) German artist Isa Genzken had been consulted, she would have rebuilt Ground Zero quite differently, turning it into a brightly colored sculptural and social playground. One of her fanciful concepts for the area, “Disco Soon (Ground Zero)” (right, 2008), is among the approximately 200 works on view in Genzken’s first comprehensive exhibition in an American museum. » Isa Genzken: Retrospective, Museum of Modern Art, 11 W. 53rd St., 212.708.9400, Nov. 23-Mar. 10, 2014

Leap Frog Life as a giant balloon in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is not always sunshine and roses. Just ask Kermit the Frog (left), whose signature song, “It’s Not Easy Being Green,” could be about the trials and tribulations he has suffered in the parade. The first Kermit balloon effortlessly soared in 1977; but in 1985, rainy weather bogged it down, and a tree ripped lowflying Kermit’s stomach. Ouch. Deflated, the trouper nonetheless finished the parade. In 1991, tree branches again ripped into the intrepid Muppet, who limped to the finish line at Herald Square. Battered and bruised, Kermit sat out the parade for 10 years. But the story has a happy ending: A brand-new Kermit—78 feet long, 61 feet high, 35 feet wide and filled with 11,000 cubic feet of helium—debuted in 2002. And since then, the crowd favorite has flown without incident. Fingers—better make that frog’s legs­­—crossed. » Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, 212.494.4495, Nov. 28

Homecoming Theatergoers may very well wonder: Not seen on Broadway since her Tony Awardnominated turn in the 2002 revival of Man of La Mancha, where has Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio been? In London, raising a family, that’s where. By ironic coincidence, or perhaps happy design, an English family drama, Terence Rattigan’s The Winslow Boy, now brings the American-born actress home—as a wife and mother (left, center). “The hero of the play is the family,” she says, “and contrary to the way many English families are depicted and/or written, rather cool and distant, Rattigan has created a very warm and loving Winslow clan. I think I myself would like to spend an evening with them.” » The Winslow Boy, Roundabout Theatre Company, American Airlines Theatre, 227 W. 42nd St., 212.719.1300

Super Trouper If you’re a Broadway musical that gets down and discos to a score comprising Swedish pop group ABBA’s greatest hits— as Mamma Mia! (right, starring Judy McLane) is and does—it can be said of you, the winner definitely takes it all. After 12 years and 5,000 performances at the Winter Garden Theatre, the show moves on Nov. 2 to the Broadhurst Theatre, where it expects to run for … why not another decade, if not more? Mamma Mia! is now the 10th longestrunning show in Broadway history and has grossed in excess of $622 million. While facts like these are fun, and records are always made to be broken, there’s another reason why we want to say, “Thank you for the music” (to borrow another ABBA song title). Mamma Mia! began previews less than one month after 9/11, joyously affirming life at the very moment when affirmation was most needed. » Mamma Mia!, Broadhurst Theatre, 235

Whose brilliant idea was it to pair two great plays, Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land and Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, on Broadway and then cast two formidable actors, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart (below, in No Man’s Land), in both? Director Sean Mathias takes the credit, but don’t imagine he’s on an ego trip. “Although I am the leader, I try not to manipulate too much,”

Mathias says, speaking about the rehearsal process. “I try to let the play breathe. One of the hardest things is to share your imagination with others, making them see what you’re seeing, and then being open to their imaginations as well. There may be disagreements, but it is a shared and a democratic experience.”

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, Elephant Drinking, Amboseli, 2007

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 is currently on view. Hasted Kraeutler is open to the public Tuesday - Saturday, 11 am - 6 pm.

Psychic Blueprint

Abstract Illusion

Philip Smith’s two-tone paintings seem like the doodles of a daydreaming architect: Linear images—particularly, clocks, hands and winding ladders—etched almost tangibly into paint. The DNA of the work has been consistent for 40-odd years, the artist says; but a new series of oil and wax canvases in his show Sign Language, like “Magic Bowl” (below, 2013), are “simpler, tighter, more succinct.” Smith attributes this refinement in technique to a memoir he composed of his father, an interior designer turned psychic healer. “To write it, I had to clarify my thinking,” he explains, “and that spilled over to my art.” » Jason McCoy Gallery, 41 E. 57th St., 212.319.1996, Nov. 7-Dec. 20

A longtime presence on the Upper East Side’s art scene, Dominique Lévy just opened her own gallery, in a building whose Federalist-style exterior contrasts with the modern works inside. Typical of her ingenious pairing of artists, the debut show Audible Presence: Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Cy Twombly examines three master abstractionists. Perhaps it’s the power of suggestion, but Klein’s sponge/ metal/stone “SE 161” (right, 1959) does ressemble an old-fashioned Victrola. » Dominique Lévy, 909 Madison Ave., 212.772.2004, thru Nov. 16

Opening Doors As the name implies, private art dealers tend to be a quiet, behind-the-scenes bunch: specialists who buy and sell by appointment only. But now, to celebrate its 25th anniversary, the Private Art Dealers Association (PADA) is mounting a public exhibit. Some 32 of its members are bringing three centuries’ worth of European and American art, from a 1656 Rembrandt etching to a 1967 Willem de Kooning painting—plus lesser-known works, such as Anson Dickinson’s “Portrait of Susan Bayard Rogers” (left, 1807). The displayed pieces mostly start in the five figures, but “sales are less important,” says PADA President Robert Simon, than “giving people a sense of what private art dealers do”—which can include advice on building an art collection. » Private Goes Public, 13 E. 69th St., Nov. 1-16

The Wild West We think of the American West’s mountain ranges as majestic and stately—monuments of earth and stone. But in the paintings of Jane Culp, they seem not stolid sentinels, but animate beings. “The earth talks to me visually about its life, and I paint structurally to reveal that fracturing, cracking, popping, breathing process of its crust,” says the artist, who works on-site, often strapping her easel to her legs. A dozen of her recent watercolors and oils are on view in Earthquake Country, including “Slanted Rockpile” (right, 2012), which shows a series of Owens Valley boulders. Depicted with Culp’s characteristic thick strokes and vivid palette, these massive formations become, in her words, fragile “forms that topple like a house of cards.” » The Bowery Gallery, 530 W. 25th St., 646.230.6655, thru Nov. 23

Building Titans Needless to say, New York City, as the world’s “first and foremost vertical metropolis” (as it is described on The Skyscraper Musem’s website), certainly deserves a museum that pays homage to its architecture. The Skyscraper Museum (left) takes a close look at how this city has evolved—and its evolving skyline, noting the changes and innovations in technology, design and more. Some of the permanent exhibits include it’s Mini-Manhattan Models: detailed, handcarved wooden miniature models of Downtown and Midtown; scale models of Hats Off to Harlem the world’s three tallest The Studio Museum in Harlem, which buildings; a mural depictopened in 1968, has earned worldwide ing the history of height; recognition for promoting the works of and The Rebuilding of artists of African descent.

A Bartow Beauty Built between 1836 and 1842 by publisher Robert Bartow, the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum (above) has the distinguished honor of being both a New York City and a national landmark. The manor was Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia’s summer office and opened as a public museum in 1947. The stone mansion, which has decorated Greek Revival interiors and a grand spiral staircase, offers guided and group tours, garden strolls, trail hikes and special events. » Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum, 895 Shore Road, Bronx, 718.885.1461

In addition, one can view artifacts and artworks all related to the moving image. » Museum of the Moving Image 36-01 35th Ave., Astoria, Queens, 718.777.6888

Glitter Groove Go-go boys. Cabaret drag shows. Muscle-filled dance floors. At XL Nightclub (above), you’ll have a gay old time, quite literally: Located within The Out NYC hotel, this club caters to LGBTQ crowds (but all are welcome, of course). The Hell’s Kitchen venue is large and not afraid to boast about every one of its 14,000 square feet. Even the bathroom has two stories. Sex appeal and spectacle define the experience: The dance floor’s two bars are manned by chiseled, shirtless

Winston Churchill (1874-1965) loved a good drink, but knew how to hold his own: “Always remember that I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me.” You wouldn’t go wrong following his lead at The Churchill Tavern (below), a homey pub that brings a hearty helping of Great Britain to this Yankee town. A smashing selection of English brews are on tap, from Old Golden Hen to Boddingtons. The bar bites would have even the queen herself licking her fingers (try the truffled artichoke fries). And if you find yourself in need of some more Churchillian wisdom, look no further than the loo, where recordings of his speeches play on a continuous loop. » The Churchill Tavern, 45 E. 28th St., 646.476.8419

Lounge on Lex The Mixing Room (far left) isn’t just about well-shaken cocktails—a mix of aesthetics is also at play. The décor combines Art Deco accents with liberal touches of midcentury modern. It makes perfect sense for a lounge located just off the lobby of an historic hotel built in 1931, The Lexington New York City, that has lived through its fair share of design trends (and, after a recent renovation, continues to dazzle). Jazz tunes play throughout the space (live on Tues, 6-7:45 p.m.), providing some crooning to go with your cocktails, which range from the Spotted Plum (near left, gin, plum puree, vanilla and black pepper syrup, fresh lime, Thai basil) to the Fitzgerald (rum, maraschino, fresh grapefruit, lime). The best part? If you’ve had too many, a comfy bed is only an elevator ride away. » The Mixing Room, The Lexington New York City, 511 Lexington Ave., 212.204.2318

A New Kind of Beltway

A Real Manwich

Now that you’ve got a custom-tailored shirt to paint the town red in (see above), you will surely need a custom-tailored belt to complete the dashing picture. Badichi Belts is a customized belt store in Manhattan (for both men and women) that allows you to choose from a variety of colors and textures. The various leathers, from Italy and South America, are handsomely displayed on the store’s walls. You then get to select your own buckle so that the in-house specialist can cut the belt to your desired specifications (like the one below), all done in a matter of minutes. » Badichi Belts, 637 Broadway, 212.533.2107

In the film When Harry Met Sally, Meg Ryan famously moaned over her lunch with Billy Crystal at Katz’s Delicatessen to make a specific sexual point. Guys, now it’s your turn to get excited. A national men’s magazine has voted Katz’s Delicatessen the “manliest sandwich shop” in America, partly because of the Three Meat Platter, which feeds ”three tourists or one regular customer,” and includes pastrami, brisket and corned beef. Go wild! » Katz’s Delicatessen, 205 E. Houston St., 212.254.2246

Well-Groomed Move over, pardner, there’s a new barber in town. Fellow Barber, a barbershop and men’s apothecary in SoHo, is putting a new twist on an old service. Gleaming mahogany floors and Koken chairs create a sleek, modern spin on the traditional tonsorial parlor (far left), but wait—there’s more. In keeping with today’s trend of using personal styling consultants, a grooming guide is on hand to offer advice about products and accessories sold at the shop, which include Dude No. 1 (left), a beard oil fragrance made with hemp seed and jojoba. Your dudette will thank you after that next kiss. » Fellow Barber, 33 Crosby St., 212.929.6014

Keeping it


Photography by Brian Kennedy In New York City’s increasingly competitive restaurant world, it can be hard to stay alive, let alone thrive for decades. Yet a chosen few do so—dining rooms always full, reservations hard to come by, their toques perpetually on top. These are their stories. By Brian Scott Lipton

ew York may be the most aptly named city in America, as no other metropolis puts so much emphasis on the word “new.” Every day, thousands of new people come here to live; and every year, hundreds of new eateries open their doors. With phenomena such as celebrity chefs and TV food channels, “restaurant culture has entered the public consciousness more than ever before, making the industry more fueled by fads, more subject to trends,” says Andrew Moesel, New York State Restaurant Association spokesperson. “So you see more turnover in restaurants today then you did 10 years ago.” Nevertheless, a handful of topnotch venues have figured out how to beat the competition and keep customers flocking to their premises—year after year.

Daniel, Chef Daniel Boulud’s flagship restaurant, keeps developing the delicacies coming out of its haute cuisine kitchen. Current dishes include pistachio and licorice-crusted sea scallops with spinach in a sauce Diable (facing page) and espelette butter-poached halibut with carrots, olives and red lentil croquettes (above).
