Programs at Carnegie Hall are nothing if not eclectic, and that is especially true of the gala performance that launches the venue’s 2013-2014 season. It is sure to be a moving experience, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducting The Philadelphia Orchestra in two robust but sensual ballet pieces, SaintSaëns’ Bacchanale from Samson et Dalila and Ravel’s Boléro. While the orchestra will also quickstep through Tchaikovsky’s Slavonic March, Op. 31, and violin virtuoso Joshua Bell will weave his way through Ravel’s Tzigane, jazz vocalist and double bass Esperanza Spalding (below) will no doubt have the blacktie crowd jivin’ in their seats.

Butterfly Wings A glassblower is like a butterfly: Both need ideal conditions, the one to fly, the other to create beautiful artworks that glow with translucence. At least that is the experience of Henry Levine, a glassblower from Albany, Ohio, who is exhibiting at the Autumn Crafts Festival (right, an example of his vessels). “If is too cold, a butterfly will sun itself and pump warm liquid into its wings,” he explains. “When its wings are warmed, it will take off flying.” Levine remembers the beach excursion, where the link between the insect and his craft came to him: “It was a glorious day with bright sunshine and a surreal blue sky—a perfect 82 degrees. I looked down the path from where I had come and saw a large butterfly bobbing and weaving towards me. With all of its hot flower nectar energy, it swooped around me and zipped on down the road in front of me. Blowing glass is a lot like that.” » Autumn Crafts Festival, Lincoln Center, Hearst Plaza, Columbus Ave., at W. 64th St.,, Oct. 5-6, 12-13

Liang Dancing Returning to New York for the first time in five years, San Francisco Ballet—the oldest professional ballet company in the United States, founded in 1933—makes up for lost time by presenting no fewer than eight local premieres during its 12-performance season. Among them is Symphonic Dances (left), choreographed by Edwaard Liang in 2012 to Sergei Rachmaninoff’s 1940 composition of the same name. “The music is big, lush, and brutal and intimidating to choreograph because it is so full,“ Liang says. “What drew me to it was its intensity, its almost tribal beat and the fantasy world that Rachmaninoff creates. Rachmaninoff was obsessed with death and spirituality, and I feel a lot of that in this piece.” » San Francisco Ballet, David H.

Citizen Kane

Piece of Her Heart

For Carol Kane (left) playing Madame Morrible, the manipulative headmistress in the Broadway musical Wicked—“a very multidimensional role with a big arc” (her words)—is “a luxury.” On Oct. 30, Wicked reaches a milestone when it celebrates 10 years on Broadway; it is now the 11th longest-running show in Broadway history. While Kane did not open the show in New York, she has been associated with it on tour in Los Angeles and San Francisco and now, for the second time, on Broadway. “I keep it fresh by just trying to be present and to listen every night as if it’s new,” she says. As to stepping into the lead role of Glinda, the Good Witch and polar opposite of Madame Morrible, Kane demurs, with her characteristic humor: “There is definitely a Glinda in me, but right off the bat I can see several problems: (a) I’m way too old, (b) I’m a Rex Harrison-style singer and (c) I already have my own wand, so I don’t need Glinda’s!”

Portraying hard-living, self-destructive 1960s rock ‘n’ roll icon Janis Joplin on the Broadway stage is one thing, being her 24/7 is another. “I don’t think anyone can survive at that level for very long,” says Mary Bridget Davies (below), the actress entrusted with bringing the legendary singer to life in the new musical A Night With Janis Joplin. “When playing Janis, I tap into her loneliness because it was central to her persona, but it’s a dangerous line I try to keep in check,” she confides. “It’s hard to shake after a show, because, during the show, I connect with the story so much that it addresses things I have dealt with or am currently dealing with.” » A Night With Janis Joplin, Lyceum Theatre, 149 W. 45th St., 212.239.6200

Chimo in Charge Tracee Chimo is the first to admit it: This has been a very good year for her. In the summer, the actress filmed her first substantial role on a network TV show, The Good Wife. This month, she reprises the part of Daphna Feygenbaum in Joshua Harmon’s darkly comic Bad Jews (left, with Michael Zegen), which she first played Off-Broadway last fall. As Daphna, Chimo has wowed the critics, who call her “pitchperfect” and “stupendous.” Chimo is similarly wowed by her character. “She’s a great female antagonist, and these are hard to come by,” she says. “I was immediately drawn to her aggressiveness and boldness. She’s very unapologetic.” Daphna’s central conflict is with her cousin Liam over their deceased grandfather’s chai (symbol of life)— Liam has it, Daphna wants it. Chimo understands family dynamics. “I am not Jewish,” she says, “but I come from an Italian-Albanian family. I modeled [Daphna] after a cousin, who’s very Italian, very larger-than-life and very opinionated.” Proof that a good actress can be a good Jew even when she’s not Jewish. » Bad Jews, Roundabout Theatre Company, Laura Pels Theatre, 111 W. 46th St., 212.719.1300

Femmes Fatales In Fallen Women, Carri Skoczek explores issues of power and female sexuality that cut across cultures and eras. Executed in printer’s ink and pearlized powder, with its sensual sheen, her portraits depict ladies from literature, real life or other artworks, such as “Cortigiana Oneste” (left, 2013), a riff on a Tintoretto portrait of a famed Venetian courtesan and poet. The subjects are richly garbed (reflecting Skoczek’s costume-design experience), their faces proud, their gazes direct. Fallen they may be, but these women have ended up on top. » Causey Contemporary, 111 Front St., Brooklyn, 718.218.8939, Oct. 10-Nov. 3

A gallery of notorious ladies … an artisanal teapot … bodies in perpetual motion

Peter Shire has designed many things, from furniture to jewelry, but “teapots are his icon,” says antiques dealer Leah Gordon. Versions 2 to 6 feet tall starred in the Santa Monica Museum of Art’s recent Peter Shire: Tea for Two Hundred exhibit. Gordon’s ceramic specimen (left, 1984) is more standard in size, but features Shire’s characteristic ability to turn the prosaic pot into a near-abstract series of playfully colored planes—one that, Gordon says, “makes you smile.” » Leah Gordon, Manhattan Art & Antiques Center, 1050 Second Ave., 212.872.1422

Shifting Shapes

Whatever medium she works in—and she works in several—Tatiana Blass almost always conveys a sense of motion. Lines of acrylic or oil paint drip down her canvases. She turns heat onto her wax sculptures, causing them to gradually melt. In the 2012 performance piece “Hard Water” (below), two ladies become increasingly entangled in unraveling spools of string. A video of that work, along with various sculptures and paintings, is on display in Interview, a solo show (one of the Brazilian artist’s first in the U.S.) that examines the media and how people relate to them: conversing, being recorded or—as depicted in one cast-iron piece—having their heads melt into a camera. » Johannes Vogt Gallery, 526 W. 26th St., Ste. 205, 212.255.2671, Oct. 17-Nov. 16

German eyewear company MYKITA landed in SoHo recently, opening its first U.S. shop in an Art Deco former factory, now outfitted with wall upon wall of optic lenses (left).

For some women, bra shopping is akin to jeans shopping (in other words—nightmarish). At Town Shop (above), however, a team of lingerie lovers pledge to make the experience a happy one. The company, founded in 1888, predates the invention of the modern brassiere, but recently, it has undergone a reinvention of its own, moving into much more spacious and glamorous digs. Customers can visit the “Bra Bar,” where bratenders show off the latest designs, while male companions relax in a separate space with plush chairs, TVs and men’s underwear, should they feel inclined to join in the shopping. But the biggest draw to the store remains the same: an astonishing array of brands, styles and sizes that top off at 40G. » Town Shop, 2270 Broadway, 212.724.8160

“Made in America”: The once ubiquitous phrase is currently coming back in vogue, thanks to operations like Detroit-based Shinola. The DIY company’s new NYC outpost (left) offers a varied inventory of handcrafted products, such as 100 percent American steel bicycles, watches and leather accessories, like wallets and pencil cases, all marked with a “Made in Detroit” seal. And while you’re shopping for these vital items, stop into The Smile café and newsstand, which doubles as the entrance to the store, for life’s other daily necessities (think: java and reading material), plus items from other brands in tune with the Shinola homegrown philosphy. » Shinola, 177 Franklin St., 917.728.3000

great dining experiences » by Lois Levine

From Russia, with Love For a swift trip out of Manhattan to the luxurious side of Russia, you may want to make a visit to Mari Vanna (left). According to legend, a matronly woman named Mari Vanna would welcome visitors into her St. Petersburg home and serve them dinner on her best china and linen, and the restaurant feels like you are, indeed, in a Russian grandmother’s dining room. Bookshelves and hutches are filled with Russian literature, trinkets and dolls: Ornate chandeliers light the restaurant and fresh flowers on every table add a lovely touch. The menu, as to be expected, is classic Russki fare: Cured herring is served with boiled potatoes, homemade blinis come with mushrooms or ground beef, and a caviar menu runs the gamut from red caviar to platinum osetra. Traditional main dishes include chicken Kiev and handmade dumplings. Raise a glass of Smirnoff and dig in! » Mari Vanna, 41 E. 20th St., 212.777.1955

As a fish lover, creative seafood dishes delight, and so I was very happy to discover Fish Tag, which frames its menu around Greek-influenced preparations from the sea. The restaurant’s clean, modern look is illustrated by a granite-topped counter, dark gray tables and modernist chairs. A menu of delicious diversity includes a chopped bulgur salad (near right), simply prepared grilled branzino (right), prawns with feta cheese and spicy chilies, and swordfish with Greek sausage, with suggested pairings from the restaurant’s extensive wine, beer and spirits lists. » Fish Tag, 222 W. 79th St., 212.362.7470

Dining With Goblins What better month to eat among the creepy and ghostly than October? A trip to Jekyll & Hyde Club (left) before or after theater is worth the extra show you get. The restaurant has it all … a secret entranceway, animatronic goblins, a mysterious library, moving pictures, talking heads on the wall and costumed waiters. Make time for a walk through the Chamber of Horrors—you (or your kids) will screech with delight. While the restaurant evokes the feel of haunted Victorian London, the menu is decidedly contemporary, including kiddie favorites (chicken fingers, burgers) along with adult offerings (cobb salad, fresh fish specialties, New York strip steak, chicken paillard). Don’t leave without a visit to the Curiosity Shop: Wouldn’t a silver-studded skull go nicely with that “I Love New York” T-shirt? » Jekyll & Hyde Club, 216 W. 44th St., 212.869.4933

Old souls, take comfort. In the shadow of hyper-modern Times Square lies a haunt nostalgic for simpler times, but not simpler cocktails. The Rum House, outfitted in dark woods and plush red leather, combines an Old New York aesthetic with craft drinks, both classic and original—from the mojito (below, white rum, mint, lime, soda) to the paloma (silver tequila, grapefruit soda, lime, salt). Live piano acts (most nights, 9:30 p.m.), including the Prohibition- and Depressionera blues of Smokin’ Billy Slater (every Wed), make it feel like the clock is ticking backward while you throw ‘em back. » The Rum House, The Edison TImes Square Hotel, 228 W. 47th St., 646.490.6924

Old New York vibes and classic cocktails … Passionate tango shows and bottles of red … Pig roasts and German-style brew

A rose between painted lips. The swirl of a slender high heel. Two bodies tangled together, moving in tandem to rapturous Afro-Latin rhythms. Malbec Restaurant and Tango House Theater (above) brings the sensual Buenos Aires dance experience to the East Village, with stunning shows performed live on an intimate stage, featuring costumed couples, musicians and vocalists (Tues-Sat, 8-9:30 p.m.). Throw in Argentine cocktail classics, imported wines and a menu of small plates, and suddenly you’re dancing on air. » Malbec Restaurant and Tango House Theater, 428 Lafayette St., 212.419.4645

Ode to Oktoberfest October heralds many changes: the turning of leaves, the return of stoop-sitting pumpkins and—oh, yes—the raucous clinking of brew-filled steins. It’s Oktoberfest season and, at Radegast Hall & Biergarten (right), a gem of a German drinking hall, the spirit is thick in the air (or is that the smell of beer foam?). Strap on a pair of lederhosen and prepare for the festivities: Celebratory keg tappings, a pig roast (free, apple in mouth and all), live music from oompah and polka bands and a mug-holding competition (who can extend that heavy liter in front of himself the longest?) will get you in a Munich state of mind on Oct. 5. Beer tastings are a treat every Tues, featuring frothy flights and Teutonic tunes. We’ll raise a glass to that. Prost! » Radegast Hall & Biergarten, 113 N. 3rd St., at Berry St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn, 718.963.3973

One of the oldest pieces of art in the world is the “Venus of Willendorf,” a limestone statue little more than 4 inches high, carved some 25,000 years ago. Though faceless, the figure is clearly female, with massive, pendulous breasts, swelling stomach and conspicuous pubic triangle. Scholars theorize she was carved by a Paleolithic hunter-gatherer as an ode to—or perhaps reflecting the artist’s obsession with—fertility. In other words, even before humans could build dwellings, they were depicting the human body. And they’ve never stopped. Throughout time, the body has been the most fundamental of artistic subjects—and an unintentional storyteller: Whether female or male, nude or clothed, idealized or distorted, how the human frame is represented can be a chronicle of a culture, telling much about everything from political contentions to private convictions. In ancient Greece, the ability to represent the human body accurately meant a great deal, as indicated in marble sculptures as early as 600 B.C. (one sculptor, Polykleitos, even codified principles of proportions in a treatise). For the ancient Greeks, the ability to create perfectly proportioned torsos was more than good art: It was a visual statement about order and control, a monument to their mastery of the world through reason. After conquering Greece, the Romans absorbed its artistic aesthetic. A work like “Aphrodite of the Gardens,” a 1st century A.D. marble sculpture displayed by dealer Axel Vervoordt at the International Well-proportioned bodies, ancient and new: a ca. 320 wine bowl from Phoenix Ancient Art at the International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show (facing page) and Randy Cooper’s wire-mesh “Clint” (2013) at Eden Fine Art (left).

Show (Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Ave., 212.642.8572, Oct. 2531) is composed according to Greek principles: a flowing, toga-draped female torso beautifully balanced and symmetrical, down to the pair of perfectly rounded breasts. The ancient world’s ideal body inspires artists even now. Case in point: the shadow sculptures of Randy Cooper, on view at Eden Fine Art (437 Madison Ave., 212.888.0177). The nude bustline of “Andrea” (2013) may be larger than that of classical counterparts (and the waist undoubtedly narrower), but her debt to principles of ancient proportions is clear: She has the “classic grace of a Greek goddess,” Cooper says. However, the sculpture’s classical form is married to modern material. Made of wire screen, “Andrea” projects a shadow that, when lighted, translates the torso into a distinct, luminous form. Eden Vice President of Business Development & Marketing François Karimi characterizes the effect as “initiating an impromptu dialogue with the steel mesh sculpture, creating a holographiclike experience.” Other contemporary artists enchant audiences not by imitating ancient traditions, but by rejecting them. Colombian sculptor Fernando Botero is famous worldwide for his whimsical, cheerily corpulent figures. Any visitor to The Shops at Columbus Circle (Time Warner Center, 10 Columbus Circle, 1.212.823.6300) can encounter Botero’s work firsthand. There, two 12-foot-tall 1990 statues, “Adam” and “Eve,” preside over the lobby like merry bronze behemoths. The couple has attracted plenty of attention, particularly “Adam”: Visitors routinely pause to rub his dwarfish member (the attention has, over time, given it a golden patina). Sometimes, though, the departure from realistic representation becomes a way of communicating more serious emotions. “Shadow in the Spotlight” (1995), a 33inch bronze sculpture by Chinese artist Wei Xiaoming, is one example. Xiaoming’s work, which can be found at the Showplace Antique + Design Center (40 W. 25th St., 212.633.6063), stretches upward, outstripping proportionality, its elongated arms raised in defeat, or perhaps self-


protection. While the ancients used realistic imitations of the body to articulate philosophical ideals, Xiaoming employs an intentionally distorted body to immortalize intensely personal, ephemeral feelings—the story of modernity, told in a series of misshapen, naked forms. One of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century, Henry Moore (1898-1986) made modernist values manifest when he declared, “Art is the expression of imagination and not the imitation of life.” Moore turned the human body abstract, teasing it into a play of surface and space that pressed the torso nearly beyond recognition. The artist is particularly famed for his family groups and his queenly, recumbent women—one of which, “Reclining Figure: Cloak” (1967), is displayed by Trinity House gallery (24 E. 64th St., 212.813.0700) at the International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show. Popular as they are as a subject, nudes have also courted controversy, as late as the 20th century. “Le Coin d’Atelier” (1922) by Naturalist painter Émile Friant (1863-1932) depicts a naked young girl nestled in a plush chair, legs crossed, immersed in reading. Though it seems an innocent scene, Friant’s painting, which William Brady & Co. is showing at the International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show, was scandalous at the time. Traditionally, respectable artists would only portray exotic or mythological characters—magisterial gods or ancient heroes, pink nymphs, Arabian concubines—in the altogether; to depict ordinary people in mundane settings without clothing was shocking. But by the mid1800s, the camera had been invented, scientific truth reigned and artists longed to represent the real, not an ideal—so they depicted real human bodies, complete with imperfections. In “Le Coin d’Atelier,” the subject, a painter’s model, is not simply nude; she has been caught in an unguarded, unposed moment. Her buttocks spread against the seat of the chair in a fashion that’s not flattering, though it is true to life. Friant’s decision to depict his model this way announced a new commitment: real bodies for a world ruled by anatomy, not fantasy. Even today, the naturalistic sight of a bare body can be disturbing—especially in art photog-

The development of photography has added a layer of realism to depictions of the body in art. Photographer Jeff Bark’s “Untitled (Dusk)” (below, 2005) from his Abandon series, on view at Hasted Kraeutler, furnishes a riveting (if somewhat unsettling) portrait of an odalisque.

and its naturalistic depictions of naked bodies. By the early-20th century, select Japanese artists were looking for a way to retain their stylistic traditions, yet also to update them in light of contemporary techniques. The result can be seen in wood-block prints such as those by Takahashi (Shotei) Hiroaki (1871-1945), part of Scholten’s exhibit Uncovered and Discovered: The Nude Figure in Modern Japanese Prints, viewable thru Nov. 10 by appointment only. He and his colleagues depicted women, often bathing or grooming themselves, stylized and idealized in the historic manner; in a nod to modernity, however, they are shown with full- (or nearly full-) frontal nudity. In these works, the naked body tells a tale about Japan’s history, its reaction to foreign influence and its reworking of its artistic heritage. The depiction of the female nude was not a break with native cultural traditions; it offered a way of returning to or reinterpreting them. Some artists see the body as a token of mortality, and strive to expose its fragility and their own fears—not just of death, but of modern existence. In his photos, videos, paintings and performance-art pieces, Dean Dempsey uses elements of Japanese Kabuki to depict bare yet androgynous figures with masklike makeup in theatrical reconstructions of banal, daily activities, such as eating dinner. According to art critic Renato Miracco, Dempsey’s work places the human body, “which is considered an Historically, Japanese artists shied away from overt depictions of naked inexhaustible source of life … in the bodies. After exposure to Western styles, however, a new frankness artificiality of the contemporary uniemerged, as in this ca. 1927 wood-block print by Takahashi (Shotei) verse.” Dempsey’s latest work is feaHiroaki, ”Makeup Before the Mirror“ (above), on view at Scholten tured in an eponymous solo exhibit Japanese Art: The beauty’s drapery reveals more than it conceals. at BOSI Contemporary (48 Orchard St., 212.966.5686, Oct. 10-Nov. 7).

here are spas. There are gyms. And then there is exhale (150 Central Park South, 212.561.7400), which merges body treatments and body fitness. The latter is provided by its exercise classes, which combine ballet barre routines, weights and yoga stretches in a thoroughly toning 60-minute session. The former come from a menu of services targeting muscles, joints and tendons. One of the most unusual is Tui Na—a Chinese-based therapy that combines various massage techniques (kneading, brushing and rolling) with acupressure. Afterward, the spa offers the opportunity to indulge in another favorite sport: shopping. The lobby boutique carries not just exercise threads, but also street garb, makeup and jewelry by local artisans. If that’s not strenuous enough for you, then consider Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa in the Sports Center at Chelsea Piers (Pier 60, W. 20th St. & Hudson River Park, 212.988.7816)—a perfect place for those craving a workout with a massage on the side. At the sprawling complex, poised over the Hudson River, the entire wide world of sports is available. Rock-climbing walls? Check. Ice rink? Oui. Pool? Dive in. Once all the sweating and straining is over, head to Labrecque, whose facilities, snack area, locker and fitness rooms fill a cavernous second-floor space. Don’t be surprised to find robed guests nibbling sushi rolls while they wait for their treatments. If you opt for a pedicure, look out the window, and you’ll see a teeny Statue of Liberty holding its flame aloft in the distance. Nowadays, most ladies lack the leisure to spend all day at a spa. But at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa (663 Fifth Ave., 212.546.0200), a sense of gracious living prevails. The Fifth Avenue flagship resembles a penthouse apartment: spacious and sunny, with pineapple-scented diffusers that sweeten the air without being cloying and a bright café that offers such treats as lobster bisque, filet mignon panino and rose-

Treatment, for example, combines a massage with a shower of fresh grape essence; the skin is then exfoliated and further nourished with creams. The spa also offers a VIP suite for two, where guests enjoy a barrel bath (as in wine barrel, get it?). Bliss SOHO (568 Broadway, 877.862.5477) is always tweaking its vast menu. One of the newest massages, Rhythm & Bliss, throws music into the mix; guests can listen to one of four genres via earphones, while the therapist kneads to the beat. Classical worked all too well for me, with extra percussion provided by my snores. If you like water, you’ll love Great Jones Spa (29 Great Jones St., 212.505.3185): A tropical wet lounge, with waterfall, plunge pool and river rock sauna, figures among its facilities (aqua is key for relaxing the muscles premassage). Save room for wickedly good smoothies and healthy treats from the juice bar. Water also figures in the flotation tank at La Casa Day Spa (41 E. 20th St., 212.673.2272), which offers other rad services, from Whole Body Vibration, where guests stand for 15 minutes on a vibrating platform (builds bone density), to the Cayce-Reilly massage, which uses hot castor oil (high in vitamin C). A treatment you’re unlikely to have had before is the Rudraksha, a specialty at Pratima Spa (110 Greene St., Ste. 701, 212.581.8136). It was created by Dr. Pratima Raichur, who’s been practicing Ayurvedic medicine for 40 years, which hinges on treat-

mary chicken. While the skin treatments embrace the latest techniques, from microdermabrasion to peels, the hair services are a throwback to the glory days of full-service beauty parlors, with big mirrors and stylist consultations. Luxury also lives at the Spa Valmont (Hôtel Plaza Athénée, 37 E. 64th St., 212.606.4675). This Old World gem consists of four Asian-themed treatment suites, including one equipped for couples. There are no communal locker rooms, no discernible hallway noise; each guest has a private suite with a changing alcove, a steam shower and a table set with petits fours, nuts and dried fruit. The massage table hides behind a soft fabric panel. The Valmont is the only hotel spa in the city to carry Valmont Cosmetics, created with glacial spring water from Switzerland, and used during services such as the Précieux L’Elixir des Glaciers, a 120-minute, anti-aging body treatment that finishes with a facial. Caudalie Vinothérapie Spa (The Plaza, 1 W. 58th St., 212.265.3182) offers something not found in most other spas—a sommelier who will pour you a glass while extolling the benefits of grape seed, stalk and sap on the skin. A wine theme runs throughout the spa’s treatments, from the Vinoperfect Facial to the Honey and Wine Wrap to the Crushed Cabernet Scrub; each is rich in the restorative properties of the fruit and grape seed polyphenols, along with other organic oils.

As you enter a dim room, you notice strands of tiny brown orbs lining the walls. These rudraksha seeds are renowned in Hinduism for their ability to heal and reduce stress. As you settle onto a table, Dr. Raichur places more strands on your body. Soothing music plays and you spend an hour in meditation. Collagen treatments are as common as H2O, but B Spa Bar in the Thompson LES hotel (190 Allen St., 212.542.8690) offers a twist with its Organic Collagen Facial. A serum of cow placenta stem cells is delivered to the skin via electric pulse therapy—tingly but not uncomfortable. In contrast to this state-of-the-art service, Graceful Services (1095 Second Ave., 212.593.9904) features centuries-old, Asian-based therapies. Geared toward dry skin, the bracing Ginseng Deep Cleansing Facial begins with a steam, followed by extractions and topped off with a mask made with ginseng and aged Chinese vinegar. Most unusual of all, perhaps, is Shizuka New York Day Spa’s (7 W. 51st St., 212.644.7400) Geisha Facial, which incorporates what the spa terms “sterilized nightingale droppings.” The birds eat only seeds that feature enzymes and guanine (an essential constituent of both RNA and DNA)—ingredients that are ideal for bringing out the best in your complexion.

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.

Artistic Energies High-octane creative energy is what fuels New York City—home to a thriving artistic population, world-class museums and scores of cutting-edge galleries. How did this perfect storm of creativity come to be? Bryan Stendahl of The Chatwal hotel offers an answer: “NYC has always been a destination for people from around the world who wanted to start anew or begin again. Any renewal or new chapter in life conjures up an excitement and sense of freedom, adventure and courage—the ideal recipe for creative energy.” Here, art simply spills onto the streets: “I prefer public and spontaneous art to art in a museum or gallery, to be frank. There is a symbiosis between the impact of the art itself and the surprise of its location. The High Line, currently showing Caterpillar, seven sculptures by Carol Bove [thru May 2014], has been a great source for such displays.” Aesthetics have come to define certain areas and entire neighborhoods, too: “The Bowery, Lower East Side and East Village reflect a bohemian artistic feel, while also staying current and relevant.” Our city is so serious about art appreciation that even our museum exteriors are awe-inspiring: “The New Museum—founded in 1977 TIPS FROM: and dedicated to living artists who do not yet have wide Bryan Stendahl, Chef Concierge, appeal—exhibits contemporary art in a building that The Chatwal, itself is a work of modern art.” As Stendahl asks, “Who 130 W. 44th St., 646.926.5254 wouldn’t want to be a part of such staggering creativity?” Good question.—William G.

Every coin has two sides. Some people are twofaced. Bagatelle (p. 77), a Meatpacking dining destination with a Mediterranean vibe, has two personalities. In the early evening hours, the place emits a reserved, formal air. A charming Chef Sébastien Chamaret, who prepares dishes as delicate as his temperament, links his seasonal menu to an upbringing in Mayenne, France (heavy on the accent): “We only ate what was in season. When there were strawberries, we ate strawberries!” But as midnight approaches, the dining room transforms into a discotheque. Suddenly, strobe lights flash, illuminating the room in electric waves of color. Thumping music rises to club volumes, and the entire place erupts into a frenzy. Women stand on their chairs. The waitstaff emerges carrying party punches overflowing with glowing straws. Pristine becomes party, and it’s high time to order another bottle.—William Frierson IV
