LOIS LEVINE

Happy High Maintenance I had always thought of myself as a low-maintenance kind of gal until friends, who have known me since forever, recently gave me the old eye roll and said, “Are you kidding us?” After some thought, I realized they were right. My coffee, for example: It must be a dark roast, bold and strong, but lacking even an iota of bitterness. My love of art falls to a handful of late-19th- and 20th-century American artists, Edward Hopper being one of my favorites; and when it comes to restaurants, dark and romantic is de rigueur.

>> MORNING On special occasions (like a Monday), I stop by the Starbucks on Seventh Ave. and W. 31st St. to indulge in a reserve blend. Individually brewed in the Clover machine, the coffee is pricier than a standard Starbucks java, but the creamy, robust taste is oh-so-worth-it.

>> AFTERNOON I love the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Edward Hopper collection, and I’ve loved the iconic artist ever since my college friend introduced me to his moody paintings of lonely souls—such as the solitary, lovely ballerina portrayed in “New York Interior” (1921).

>> EVENING Fueled by coffee, work and a cultural expedition, there is no better way to cap off the day than at a place like Cherry—plush with red velvet and gold-fringed wall sconces. The food, mostly Asian-fusion, such as miso-glazed sea bass, is just as decadently alluring as the décor.

CUISINE SCENE

Belly Up to the Bar A restaurant’s lounge can be a tasty alternative to the dining room. By Meryl D. Pearlstein Photography by Brian Kennedy

T

here’s a reason New York City is a mecca for the food-obsessed: Its tens of thousands of restaurants offer up culinary experiences from the truly casual to the most elaborate. But on-the-go visitors often have no time or inclination for a full sit-down event. However, small plates, abbreviated menus and finger foods can all make for a great (and, frequently, more affordable) meal in a more relaxed setting. Read on for a selection of restaurants that boast a separate bar/lounge menu and dining area—a way to sample some of the city’s best in an easygoing manner. Like Havana’s El Floridita, transported to the Theater

8

District, the red-walled Cuba Lounge at Victor’s Cafe (236 W. 52nd St., btw Broadway & Eighth Ave., 212.586.7714) is home to authentic Cuban food, music and ambience. The menu highlights founder Victor del Corral’s original and updated family recipes: red snapper ceviche, a traditional pressed Cuban sandwich (hand-carved pork, Swiss cheese, pickle and mustard) and various cold and warm tapas. Specialty drinks like red, white or Champagne sangria or the signature darkrum mojito encourage socializing. The 26-seat lounge surrounds you with historical photos and the sounds of Sol de Cuba, a live combo that plays most evenings.

Open continuously from lunchtime till late, it’s a cozy spot, adjacent to the restaurant’s main dining room. Towards the end of the evening—around 10:30 p.m. or so—don’t be surprised if a spontaneous showcase of salsa dancing erupts on the floor. Discreetly tucked among Midtown’s Lexington Avenue hotels, The Sea Fire Grill (158 E. 48th St., btw Third & Lexington aves., 212.935.3785) constantly sparkles with a combination of travelers and local after-work types. With a more casual feel than the contempo swank supper club setting of the main dining room, the bar and lounge tempt with a creative menu of land-and-sea small plates starting at 4 p.m. (the regular menu is served at lunch and at night also). Share a daily changing sampler of West or East Coast oysters, beef sliders, the so-freshyou-could-slap-it lobster roll trio or lollipop lamb chops. High-back stools are set around elevated tables as well as the bar, making this a convivial place to chat with other patrons and the friendly bartenders, as they whip up specialty cocktails or pour a variety of wines by the glass. A haven for Fifth Avenue shoppers and Empire State Building visitors, one of New York City’s oldest steak houses welcomes diners to revive and reward in the former town house of matinee idol/screen star John Barrymore. Below the clubby upstairs at Frankie & Johnnie’s Steakhouse (32 W. 37th St., btw Fifth & Sixth aves., 212.947.8940), there’s a chatty group watching TV at the bar seats or booths in the inviting pub room. A Lite Bites menu of smaller plates, including mini cheeseburgers,

crabettes (bite-size crab cakes), blue cheese-drizzled cottage chips and BBQ chicken pizza creates a quick, satisfying meal—and a bargain, to boot. The pub is open for lunch and dinner and is also perfect for a pre-gaming or -concertizing nosh before heading off to Madison Square Garden, within easy walking distance. From a veteran haven to the newest kid on the bar stool block: In the softly lit 12-seat cocktail room—set apart from the formal restaurant by the lobby of the Hotel Chandler—Juni (12 E. 31st St., btw Madison & Fifth aves., 212.995.8599) presents a distinctive lounge experience. Two overhead screens show the action in the downstairs kitchen, a privilege usually reserved for those at a chef’s table. Award-winning, innovative Chef Shaun Hergatt has put together a menu of artistic plates and cocktails that change according to the season, along with constants like a Black Angus burger and chicken club sandwich for a simpler bite. It’s hard to label this

At the new Morton’s The Steakhouse, the bar/lounge (below) occupies the entire first floor. Its menu reflects the restaurant’s beefy raison d’être, with mini cheeseburgers (facing page) and steak tacos (right).

A sleek Midtown watering hole, The Sea Fire Grill bar (above) offers a menu rich in surf-and-turf classics: shrimp tempura, lobster rolls and grilled-toperfection lollipop lamb chops (left).

pub grub when the presentation is so haute cuisine: What other bar serves you an amuse bouche as sculpted as a work of art? There’s a sense of privilege when dining in Chef Daniel Humm’s striking, coveted-reservation destination Eleven Madison Park (11 Madison Ave., at E. 24th St., 212.889.0905). But a 16-to-18-course prix fixe—the only option the restaurant offers—might not be your cup of foie gras. Happily, in the less formal lounge bar, you can sit at the 12 bar seats or in the five leather banquette tables that face the dining room and devise your own culinary feast from its separate, à la carte menu. Start with the splurgy caviar, smoked sturgeon and bagel plate, served under a dome filled with smoke, that speaks volumes about the restaurant’s creativity. After that, the seasonal

choices and dessert selection will give you a sense of the provocative American cuisine without the ceremony. The choice for most romantic bar is BONDST (6 Bond St., btw Broadway & Lafayette St., 212.777.2500) in NoHo. A neighborhood fave on a cobblestoned street reminiscent of old New York, the two-story restaurant/bar serves up some of the most creative Asian dishes in the city. The downstairs lounge is the perfect date spot, with a sensuous 13-seat bar and individual seating nooks scattered along the wall. The vegetarian and non-veggie menu differs from that of the main restaurant in its focus on small plates, such as skewers, shumai and a tuna carpaccio tart with truffle oil that will banish any thoughts of asking for a pedestrian California roll. The bartenders create your new favorite drink: shishito jalapeño margarita or shiso cucumber cocktail, anyone? At David Burke Townhouse (133 E. 61st St., btw Lexington & Park aves., 212.813.2121) , the welcoming bar, perched at the front of the restaurant, above the dining areas, offers Chef Burke’s playful American cuisine from 4 p.m. on. (the regular menu is available earlier). Diners fill bar seats and tables set around the narrow space to enjoy a special menu of small plates, some from the busy restaurant’s lunch and dinner choices, and others combined to create signatures of the bar’s own, like the benny (sea scallops)/pastrami salmon/ and crab cake trio, or the “angry prawns,” a smaller rendition of the dining room’s chili-oiled “crispy & angry lobster.” Downtown financiers, shoppers and visitors to the National September 11 Memorial look to the Bar 12-21

at Morton’s The Steakhouse (136 Washington St., at Albany St., 212.608.0171) for a welcoming meal and break. The space fills the entire first floor with 75 seats, a wall of backlit bottles adding color to the sleek black-and-white room. Sit at the cocktail-style tables, at the bar or in the generous booths and enjoy the Bar Bites menu any time of day. The iceberg wedge bites, sliced filet mignon with three sauces and a crab, spinach and artichoke dip compose a well-rounded dinner. Toast the celebrity photos on the walls with a signature gin or vodka Mortini, garnished with hand-stuffed blue cheese olives. Café Español’s adjoining Salon de Tapas (190 Sullivan St., btw Bleecker & W. Houston sts., .212.505.0657) offers

the namesake nibbles in a youthful, inviting room. Connected by an outdoor garden, both the traditional café and the brick-walled salon highlight the best of Galicia. Margaritas, mojitos and sangrias accompany the enormous selection of hot and cold small plates. Select three or more to devise a meal that’s light and varied: perhaps a combo of grilled octopus, shrimp in garlic sauce and ham and chicken croquetas. For something heartier, one of the carefully composed paellas that are a Café Español hallmark is available, too. Chef/owner Thomas Keller’s Per Se (Time Warner Center, 10 Columbus Circle, at W. 60th St., 212.823.9335) is the stuff that restaurant legends are made of. As a destination dining event (one that lasts for hours), it can be a difficult reservation to secure. But the Salon, seating diners on a first-come, first-served basis, is the ticket for a glimpse into this French-American culinary experience, without the investment of a multicourse meal. Snuggle around the six-seat glass table, or at one of the five couch set-ups in the restaurant’s plush, Adam Tihany-designed anteroom for an à la carte selection from the evening’s vegetable, chef’s and dessert tasting menus. The touchscreen wine list offers an expansive selection from around the globe. Ask to face Columbus Circle, if possible, for a magical view of Central Park and Central Park South. Specialties at the Cuba Lounge at Victor’s Café (below) include sweet plantains, ham croquettes and yuca fries, served separately or in assortments with dipping sauces, like the 1492 Aperitivo Cubano (left).

washed down with cocktails both new and traditional. Prefer a more full-fledged restaurant? Pints of porter, ale and beer flow freely alongside a variety of mains at POUND & PENCE (55 Liberty St., at Nassau St., 212.716.1140), which is adorned with Merrie Olde England imagery and memorabilia. In contrast, the vibe is darkly seductive and slightly Hitchcockian at THE HEATH (The McKittrick Hotel, 542 W. 27th St., btw 10th & 11th aves., 212.564.1662), where the chef offers such exotica as Roast Cockles & Crab, Crispy Pig Crunchies and Yorkshire Fry-Up. Let’s not neglect the Scots. ST. ANDREWS (140 W. 46th St., btw Sixth & Seventh aves., 212.840.8413) boasts good auld specialities like cock-aleekie soup, haggis and Shetland Isle salmon, while kilt-clad bartenders pour dozens of different singlemalt scotches. There are finedining options, too. Looking like something out of a Mayfair town

house, THE PEACOCK K (24 E. 39th St., btw Park & Madison aves., 646.837.6776) serves roasts and braised meats, accompanied by traditional sides such as bubble and squeak (pan-fried potato, cabbage and other vegetables) and chips; save room for a sweet like treacle tart or chocolate sponge laced with Guinness. Or, if you prefer your beer unadulterated, THE SHAKESPEARE pub in the basement offers a variety of United Kingdom stouts and cask ales under a beamed wood ceiling, along with pub grub, British style (i.e., warm roast beef sandwiches and Scotch eggs).—T.S.

Like it says on the tin—to use an English expression—DEAD RABBIT GROCERY AND GROG (30 Water St., btw Broad St. & Coenties Slip, 646.422.7906) offers Anglo digestibles to go (think: Chivers jams and Marmite Yeast Extract). But it’s better to stay and partake of its punches, possets and other authentic 19th-century mixed drinks, either in the Taproom, complete with sawdusty floor, or the more upscale Parlor, with live piano music weekly. Once widely derided, English cuisine now garners a newfound respect, thanks largely to gastropubs—watering holes that cook classic dishes with fresh ingredients and fine technique. At candlelit JONES WOOD FOUNDRY (401 E. 76th St., btw First & Second aves., 212.249.2700), customers sit at mismatched wood tables and chairs to consume haddock or cod & chips, savory meat pies and bangers & mash, plus daily changing mains. Named for a 16th-century female pirate, Irishthemed GRACE (365 Third Ave., btw E. 26th & E. 27th sts., 646.918.6553) specializes in seafood—either raw or in hearty, homey preparations—

WHERE NOW

ON THE TOWN From torchy singers to tragic love stories, there’s nothing like New York City’s lively arts scene to create a romantic atmosphere for you and your Valentine—any day of the month. CHOREOGRAPHED COUPLES Everything is beautiful at the ballet—especially when it’s the New York City Ballet (David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, Columbus Ave. , at W. 63rd St., 212.496.0600) dancing the works of Jerome Robbins, a choreographer who was endlessly fascinated by partnering and pas de deux. His 1969 ballet “Dances at a Gathering” (Feb. 1, 6 & 9) features duos (and a few trios) in various moods and stages of relationships, moving to music by Chopin, the ultimate Romantic Era composer.

naval officer. It’s at The Metropolitan Opera (Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center, Columbus Ave., btw W. 63rd & W. 64th sts., 212.362. 6000, Feb. 1 & 7) in an avant-garde production. COME TO THE CABARET If 54 Below (254 W 54th St., btw Broadway & Eighth Ave., 646.476.3551) looks like something out of a play, it’s no surprise—the supper club was designed by set designer John Lee Beatty. The intimate venue hosts cabaret acts by Broadway performers; this Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, the apt act is Cheek to Cheek: A Broadway Romance, starring Michael McCorry Rose and Tiffany Haas, who currently play the romantic leads in the musical Wicked.

SWEET AND LOWDOWN A dark, sapphire-hued setting … a glass of wine … and the sultry sound of live jazz. That sums up the scene at Blue Note New York (131 W. 3rd St., btw MacDougal St. & Sixth Ave., 212.475.8592), a quintessential Greenwich Village music club. This month is made for lovers, with acts that include singer/pianist Rachelle Ferrell (Feb. 1316)—she of the six-octive range. A GOOD CRY Ever since 1904, audiences have been blinking back bittersweet tears at Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, y hoping against hope that love can conquer the cultural differences between the little Japanese geisha and the strapping American

Now, The Bridges of Madison County (Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, 236 W. 45th St., btw Broadway & Eighth Ave., 212.239.6200) is a Broadway musical, formally opening on Feb. 20; its story of a farm wife and a photographer spending a few magical days together is augmented with a lush score by Jason Robert Brown.—T.S.

ENTERTAINMENT Madison Square Garden (Seventh Ave., btw W. 31st & W. 33rd sts., 212.465.6741) just got a $1 billion renovation—and with all the new amenities, things are coming up roses for the sports and concert venue. Construction was underway for three years (taking place during off-season for the New York Rangers and Knicks, of course), resulting in such new features as a viewing platform above the arena, specialty food vendors (offering everything from tacos to barbecue) and memorabilia displays (think: Wayne Gretzky’s vintage locker). To feed the public’s ever-increasing appetite for spectacle, 1,000 more arena seats have been installed. Even in winter, some gardens can flower.

TRAVEL

International Intrigue Looking to circumnavigate the globe in a single afternoon? The New York Times Travel Show (Jacob K. Javits Center, 655 W. 34th St., at 11th Ave., www.nytimes.com/travelshow, Feb. 28-Mar. 2) makes it possible (at least, in a virtual way). The annual event—featuring some 500 exhibitors representing over 150 countries, from Africa to Asia to Australia to Latin America—provides a wealth of info and deals on travel methods and destinations. On offer are discounts, educational seminars by industry authorities, food and wine tastings, and entertainment . After all, who can resist an adorable Lithuanian children’s choir?

THEATER

Jazz With a Twist The historic Harlem nightspot The Cotton Club may have shuttered its doors in 1940, but on Broadway feet are currently tapping to the tunes that made the place famous (and vice versa) at the hit revue After Midnightt (Brooks Atkinson Theatre, 256 W. 47th St., btw Broadway & Eighth Ave., 877.250.2929). The show recreates an evening at the legendary venue, with a 17-piece orchestra, gravity-defying dancers, singers torchy and comic and—per Cotton Club tradition—a rotating series of headliners. The “special guest star” is Fantasia until Feb. 9; Feb. 11-Mar. 9, k. d. lang takes over, adding her country-rock style to the score of classics by the likes of Duke Ellington and Harold Arlen.—William Frierson

LIGHTS, CAMERA ...

From Scratch

Once the East Coast hub for Paramount Pictures in the 1920s, Astoria still plays a role in Hollywood by hosting the studios for Nurse Jackie, Men in Black 3 and other movies and shows. The Museum of the Moving Image (36-01 35th Ave., at 37th St., 718.777.6888) honors this tradition with displays of antique cameras, iconic costumes (including Bill Cosby’s sweater) and audiovisual material. Hands-on exhibitions,

including Indie Essentials: 25 MustPlay Video Games (thru Mar. 2), offer playful ways to interact with moving images, while visitors can also create their own flip books and animations at computer-based stations.

Chow down on late-night snacks and then return for all-day weekend brunch at The Queens Kickshaw (40-17 Broadway, at 41st St., 718.777.0913). The home-cooking café reinvents the classic grilled cheese sandwich (below) with Asian flavors, local cheeses, tangy pickles and fruit

Spirit of Queens Just off the main drag of Broadway, a bustling gift store celebrates its hometown pride with artistic subway map prints, Big Apple puzzles, Astoria tote bags (left) and “I Heart Queens” T-shirts, bibs and onesies. Inspired by her stomping grounds of more than a decade, owner Mackenzi Farquer opened Lockwood (32-15 33rd St., btw 34th Ave. & Broadway, 718.626.6030) in September as a place for chic apparel, modern furniture, crafty stationery, whimsical kitchen gadgets and toys. The emporium also supports the work of NYC artisans by offering their locally made tonic syrups, nut-based spreads and handmade jewelry. HOW TO GET THERE

spreads for unforgettable combinations during lunch and dinner. The restaurant’s extensive beverage menu, featuring coffee and espresso, vinegar cordials known as “shrubs,” beer, mead, wine, locally made kombucha and dozens of ciders, makes pairing a breeze; diners also keep coming back for live music.

Home to Sesame Street, t this proud Queens community reels in visitors with comfort food, mom-and-pop shops and relics of early movie production.

LOCALS LOVE IT Sip on creative cocktails at the cozy Sweet Afton (30-09 34th St., at 30th Ave., 718.777.2570), where house-infused liquors burst with flavor.

NYC-based artist Zane Fix is similar to his artwork in many ways: bold and unconventional, with a rock ‘n’ roller’s flair. He dubs himself the “guru of Japanese pop art,” after making his name blending Eastern traditions of wood-block print portraits with imagery and icons from Western pop culture. Think: Audrey Hepburn done up like a geisha and modern interpretations of classic Kabuki characters, such as “Rockabuki Guitarman” (left).

GALLERIES & ANTIQUES DISTRICTS In general, commercial art galleries and antiques shops are concentrated in five areas of Manhattan: The Upper East Side. Madison Ave., and surrounding streets, is a rich hunting ground for the collector of fine art and antiques. 57th St. The stretch btw Madison & Sixth aves. is of special interest to the art lover. The most notable buildings here are 40 W. 57th St. (btw Fifth & Sixth aves.); 724 Fifth Ave. (btw 56th & 57th sts.); 745 Fifth Ave. (btw 57th & 58th sts.); the Fuller Building (41 E. 57th St., at Madison Ave.); and the Crown Building (730 Fifth Ave., btw 56th & 57th sts.). Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. These are unquestionably two of Manhattan’s hottest art districts. Contemporary paintings, sculpture and video installations prevail, with only a few antiques shops. Art galleries are mainly located btw W. 14th & W. 29th sts. and btw 10th & 12th aves. A multitude of galleries can be found on W. 20th, W. 21st, W. 22nd, W. 24th, W. 25th & W. 26th sts. SoHo. Though SoHo has ceded its title as Manhattan’s art epicenter to Chelsea, many outstanding galleries remain in this neighborhood, where the cast-iron buildings are works of art themselves. Greene & Wooster sts. and W. Broadway are important thoroughfares for the art-minded. The East Village and Lower East Side. Shops along two streets—Broadway, btw E. 10th & E. 13th sts., and E. 10th St., btw University Pl. & Broadway—specialize in fine furniture and accessories. Offbeat art exhibitors cluster on Rivington, Orchard, Eldridge and Chrystie sts., as well as on Bowery.

Meditate on It There’s something inherently contemplative about the countryside. Especially so for Quebec-born artist Marie-Hélène Beaudry, who lives and works in rural Canada. “An hour of meditation is a must before holding the brush,” she says. These soulsearching sessions push her to constantly experiment, yielding intriguing abstract works, such as ”Landscape,” (above, 2004). You can view this and other Beaudry works at Caelum Gallery (p. 40).

BELGIAN ART The dark portraits of Waterloo-based artist Johan Van Mullem are showcased during a self-titled exhibit at C24 Gallery (p. 40), thru Feb. 22.

Even though the Federal Reserve System commemorates its centennial this year, many have yet to understand the pivotal role it plays in the economy. The Museum of American Finance demystifies the complexities of the nation’s central bank in its largest exhibition to date, The Fed at 100 0 (thru Oct. 1). The exhibit’s audio tour tells the history of American finance through descriptions of more than 100 objects, including The Story of Checks (left). The Fed has published this comic book, along with many others, for decades as part of a financial literacy initiative to teach children about banking and trade.

SPOTLIGHT

PHOTO: CHURRASCARIA PLATAFORMA, LOUIS WALTHALL

Brazilian B ili Cuts C t Brazil—the world’s largest exporter of beef—is home to a culture that has perfected steak preparation. The Theater District’s Churrascaria Plataforma (p. 66) taps into that legacy, serving succulent cuts on skewers—from sirloin to top round to brisket—rodíziostyle (all-you-can-eat). Meat isn’t all that’s on the menu, however: A gourmet salad bar (above) offers a banquet of traditional casseroles and vegetable options. And you can end the meal like a Brazilian would, with a caipirinha, the citrusy national cocktail.

ABOUT SUBWAYS NYC Transit’s subway system operates 24 lines designated by either a route number or letter. Serving 468 stations along 660 miles of track, approximately 6,400 air-conditioned subway cars will take you to almost anywhere in the city faster than a taxi and at a fraction of the cost. Subways run every 2-to-5 minutes during rush hours, 10-to-15 minutes during the day and about every 20 minutes between midnight and 5 a.m. Signs above the platform edge tell you which trains stop there and the direction of travel. Signs on the front of the train identify the route. Subway maps are hung at stations and in every subway car. Subway station entrances display the routes that stop there; some entrances only provide service in one direction (for example, uptown only or downtown only), so be sure you check before you pay. Station booth agents can answer questions and sell MetroCard, NYC Transit’s electronic farecard. Subway stations also have MetroCard Vending Machines. They accept credit/debit cards or cash. ABOUT BUSES Approximately 5,900 air-conditioned buses provide reliable service on over 300 routes to almost anywhere in the city. Bus stops are located about every two blocks on street corners and are marked by a sign pole with a bus emblem and route number. While some buses run 24 hours a day, most operate between 5 a.m. and 2 a.m. Bus schedules and route maps are posted on most bus stops. All buses are equipped with wheelchair accessible lifts. Check the sign on the front of the bus. If you’re not sure it’s the bus you want, ask the bus operator.

My New York MY PERFECT DAY Morning Chinese Breakfast

#

In the morning, I like going to Chinatown and getting a bowl of “congee” (a Chinese rice porridge), usually at Hing Huang, on Lafayette St. If I don’t go there, then I would stop by Canal Best on Canal St.

Afternoon Workin’ for a Living

Drew Nieporent [Founder, Myriad Restaurant Group] One of the country’s most celebrated restaurateurs, Drew Nieporent opened his first New York restaurant, Montrachet, in 1985. Since then, his Myriad Group has opened and operated over 36 restaurants around the world, including New York City’s Nobu and Tribeca Grill.

What are the perks of running restaurants in New York City? The perks are, if you run a place with good food, you get to eat and drink pretty well, and you get to make your guests happy by provding meaningful dinnig experiences. We hire smart and talented people with character, who have the ability to authentically convey hospitality.

When you are “off duty,” what are some of your favorite spots to eat? Chinatown or Little Italy: delicious food that is very well-priced. What are your favorite neighborhoods in the city? Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village always brings back warm memories because that’s where I grew up. And of course, we’ve been in TriBeCa since 1985, and have been part of amazing changes in the ”Triangle Below Canal.” What’s the best advice you can give someone visiting New York? Look at a map, learn how to ride the subways and, of course, eat everywhere you possibly can (especially at my restaurants).

Evening Downtime If I’m not working, I’m very happy to go home to spend time with my wife, Ann, and my two dogs. There are also many charity, sports, theatrical and cultural events that are enjoyable to attend and also inspiring.

What got you first interested in the restaurant business? My dad was an attorney who represented restaurants with many diverse cuisines. He took me to some of these places: The food and aromas were very enticing, the whole experience very theatrical, and I immediately knew it was something I wanted to do.

After breakfast, I head to work and make the rounds. First, I visit Tribeca Grill, then Nobu New York, Nobu Next Door and Nobu Fifty Seven. After that, I walk down the street to Crush Wine & Spirits at 57th St. between Third and Lexington aves. and check out the spectacular wine bottles on the walls.
