Parsing the new wave of gin-centric cocktail joints in NYC

Parsing the new wave of gin-centric cocktail joints in NYC | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it

THE CLANDESTINE CLUB
Bathtub Gin
(132 Ninth Ave., nr. 19th St.; 646-559-1671)
Lampshades and damask wallpaper lean Victorian inside this neo-speakeasy, while pulsing dance music and patrons’ shiny party finery are totally contemporary. try the Sloe Gin Ginger Sling ($15), a sour-sweet mix of cherry heering, apricot liqueur, lime, ginger, and soda.


THE ARTISAN HAUNT
The Shanty
(79 Richardson St., nr. Lorimer St., Williamsburg; 718-878-3579)
The in-house bar of the New York Distilling Company, whose Dorothy Parker American gin is warm with cinnamon and elderberry. try the Sauvetage ($11), made with Dorothy Parker, sweet vermouth, bitters, and grapefruit juice.

THE OLD-WORLD DIVE
Gin Palace
(95 Ave. A, at 6th St.; 212-614-6818)
The El Cobre replacement should open next month in Ravi DeRossi’s Cienfuegos complex. When it does, expect dim, deliberately low-frills surroundings. try the gin-and-tonic ($10): Dorothy Parker with lime and housemade tonic, served carbonated out of a keg.

THE PASTORAL GASTROPUB
The Wren
(344 Bowery, nr. Great Jones St.; 212-388-0148) Mismatched chairs and country knickknacks may conjure a Herefordshire farmhouse vibe, but the gin-focused cocktails are all city. try the Black & Blue ($12), packed with blackberry jam; blueberry, mulberry, and lime juices; Damrak; and soda.

THE ELEGANT TAPROOM
Whitehall
(19 Greenwich Ave., nr. W. 10th St.; 212-675-7261) Postwar London informs the streamlined design here, down to the Hyde Park–green benches. The menu boasts a hundred gins—from American craft to Indian. try the No. 3, a gin tipple made with bright sparkling wine and tart-sweet rhubarb jam.

New York for foodies eBook (Amazon Kindle Store)

New York for foodies eBook (Amazon Kindle Store) | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it

Perhaps there’s nothing wrong with returning to the stalwart comfort food of Chipotle, but there is so much more for a foodie to explore outside the Manhattan bubble. To discover the kind of rich ethnic cuisine that thrives in New York’s boroughs, take a trip out to Jackson Heights in Queens. This non affluent residential area is home to many Indian, Colombian and Mexican immigrants, and you’ll feel more like you’re traveling the world on a roundtrip than you just got out of the most famous island ever.

Hisham Matar: Anatomy of a Disappearance at the Bookcourt

Hisham Matar: Anatomy of a Disappearance at the Bookcourt | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it

This mesmerizing literary novel is written with all the emotional precision and intimacy that have won Hisham Matar tremendous international recognition. In a voice that is delicately wrought and beautifully tender, he asks: When a loved one disappears, how does that absence shape the lives of those who are left?

Nuri is a young boy when his mother dies. It seems that nothing will fill the emptiness her death leaves behind in the Cairo apartment he shares with his father—until they meet Mona, sitting in her yellow swimsuit by the pool of the Magda Marina hotel. As soon as Nuri sees Mona, the rest of the world vanishes. But it is Nuri’s father with whom Mona falls in love and whom she eventually marries. Their happiness consumes Nuri to the point where he wishes his father would disappear. Nuri will, however, soon regret what he’s wished for. When his father, a dissident in exile from his homeland, is abducted under mysterious circumstances, the world that Nuri and his stepmother share is shattered. And soon they begin to realize how little they knew about the man they both loved.

Hurricane Sandy and the Future of the New York Art World

Hurricane Sandy and the Future of the New York Art World | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it

On Tuesday, October 30, the day after the lights went out in downtown New York, the futuristic architect, utopian draftsman, and 72-year-old Cooper Union professor Lebbeus Woods joined the other great paper architects in the sky. Among his vast legacy of seemingly outlandish radical projects was a famous drawing of Lower Manhattan.

Sunday Brunch in Chelsea

Sunday Brunch in Chelsea | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it
Corinna Bajocco's insight:

Sunday morning with a visit to the art galleries. Sunday morning with a walk along the Highline. Nostalgic Sunday morning of contemplation at the Chelsea Hotel. Sunday morning of fashion with frantic shopping at the MeatPacking District. Pleasantly following advice to brunch at Tipsy Parson. When times are tough, even New Yorkers tend to eat at home and go out less. But what happens when two imaginative restaurant owners in the trendiest quarter of the Big Apple decide to transform their restaurant into a cozy, welcoming place like certain Southern houses? What happens is that the place is always full. Although neither Tasha Gibson nor Julie Wallach are originally from Georgia or Louisiana, they had the bright idea to create a fantasy in perfect Dixieland style, and also the aromas and flavors that actually feed certain fantasies. Indeed the food is as nostalgic as the décor, firmly anchored below the Mason-Dixon Line. The aperitifs at the bar are exactly what a Carolina lady might prepare of a Sunday morning after church. Shrimps and figs, wrapped in bacon, pinned with a toothpick and covered in a bourbon sauce. What can I say, the result is “comfortable” and rustic.

Mrs. Wallach certainly isn’t the queen of casseroles, but here a rough generosity reigns, with no girly frills. Her cooking certainly won’t impress you, but you’ll be ever so heartened by her food.

That beacon of false hope in the distance — the somewhat complicated, two-part light system atop taxis — has been banned in favor of a single"on" or "off" signal that should be installed by early 2013. Drunk people of the night now have one less reason to get irrationally angry.
