“Reliably superb” French–New American cuisine “as modern as the art” is the deal at Danny Meyer’s “effortlessly chic” eatery inside MoMA, where the “tranquil” dining room boasts “lovely” sculpture garden views and service is “impeccable” (“refreshing” no-tipping policy notwithstanding); such “high-end sophistication” is unsurprisingly “pricey”, but the “more casual” front bar area “easier on the wallet.” The Bar Room The lively Bar Room offers Chef Abram Bissell’s vividly seasonal contemporary cooking à la carte, along with an award-winning wine program and carefully curated cocktails, beer, and spirits. Guests have the option of sitting in The Bar Room, the adjacent lounge, or at the vibrant 24-seat marble bar. Walk-ins are accepted in all three areas, and The Bar Room also welcomes reservations up to 28 days in advance.
Set in a 2000 square foot store located in Manhattan’s 10th Ave. retail corridor, STORY is a retail concept that takes the point of view of a magazine, changes like a gallery and sells things like a store. That means every four to eight weeks, STORY completely reinvents itself -from the design to the merchandise – with the goal of bringing to light a new theme, trend or issue.
Beauty & Essex has an innovative design that starts in the restaurant’s entrance, a wellcurated modern day pawn shop replete with a saxophone, boombox, quirky artifacts, vintage treasures and an eclectic array of “oneoff” pieces of jewelry. Continuing past the pawn shop, guests encounter a grand, circular staircase wrapped around a twostory custom chandelier, but only the adventurous will discover all that Beauty & Essex h as to offer. With four distinct dining rooms (one private), two bars, a lounge and a women’s bathroom complete with a salon including a luxurious sofa, and antique perfume bottles. The cuisine, much like the design, is intended to set a new course. Chef Chris Santos was one of the pioneers of the small, share plate dining trend that has swept the nation, and with the Beauty & Essex menu, he once again has created waves on the food scene.
