Playboy Club will have a lounge, game room, and restaurant
Millions of women may have marched for equality over the weekend, but looks like Playboy thinks a market still exists for their iconic cleavage-bearing, bunny ear-wearing, male gaze-approved servers. The new Cachet Boutique New York hotel opening in Midtown later this year will be home to a location of Playboy Club — marking the first time in more than 30 years that the legendary (and controversial) club will be back in the city.
Playboy Enterprises is teaming up with Merchants Hospitality and Cachet Hospitality Group to open the club, which ...
Former Four Seasons space will later include the Pool and the casual spot in the former Brasserie
The New York Timeschecks in on the players from Major Food Group, Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi, and Jeff Zalaznick, who have been working full throttle on the details surrounding the opening of the Landmark Rooms at the Seagram Building— formerly known as the Four Seasons.
Every week for the past year, they’ve been testing dishes in what had been Torrisi Italian Specialties, now closed. According to reporter Tejal Rao, the team already has draft menus for the Grill and the ...
Thanks to a snafu during wet conditions, Skittles slid off a delivery truck and spilled all over the highway, where the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office came upon them and understandably felt perplexed. (Partly because all of them were the red color and had started to “disintegrate in the rain.”) The …
In late 2013, following the success of 28-seat Battersby, chefs Joseph Ogrodnek and Walker Stern’s opened Dover — a Carroll Gardens restaurant double the size and more refined, with an (optional) $95, seven-course, French-leaning tasting menu. Critics quickly praised it: In his two-star Times review,
Chongqing chicken wings and thrice-cooked bacon are available
All the coolest kids watching the Super Bowl this year can now serve thrice-cooked bacon at their parties from Mission Chinese Food, which will soon offer catering. Chef Danny Bowien’s uber-hip Shanghai/Sichuan house on the Lower East Side is launching the program just in time for the big game on Sunday, February 5th.
The restaurant posted the announcement on its website with a variety of sports graphics:
The Portland import said it may open elsewhere in NYC
Say goodbye to the Williamsburg outpost of Bunk Sandwiches, a Portland-based restaurant known for its creative, casual fare. The restaurant at 740 Driggs Ave., at South 2nd Street, first opened in New York in November 2015. It was the first location outside of Oregon, and just last month, they reopened after renovating the space to look more like the originals on the West Coast.
Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of Labor, Andy Puzder — the robot-loving CEO of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s parent company, CKE Restaurants —is notoriously anti-labor. He’s advocated for replacing people with machines instead of paying them a livable wage, thinks Obamacare is bogus, and presided over chains with …
It took nearly a century for the dream to be realized, and many believed it would never happen. Up and down the Upper East Side’s Second Avenue for the last decade, lanes were blocked off, pounding jackhammers deafened passers-by, great clouds of dust rose up, and acres upon acres of valuable urban space were sequestered behind chain-link fences. It was like living on an urban ranch. Finally, the three stops on the Q train that it took so long to construct are open and New Yorkers and visitors alike are treating them as tourist attractions.
As part of his Saturday Night Livehosting gig this weekend, Aziz Ansari tried rehabbing Chuck E. Cheese’s house-of-terror rap by reimagining the animatronic band as an effective tool in breaking criminals down mentally. Cops track the leader of a crime ring to an …
Just before the inauguration, news leaked that Donald Trump’s long-awaited pick for Agriculture secretary would be former Georgia governor Sonny Perdue. In a way, it was a relief to some people, since it’s true that, unlike some of Trump’s most controversial cabinet nominees, Perdue at least
There is no potpie in Peruvian cooking, but there is ají de gallina — shredded chicken stewed in a lip-smacking sauce made from garlic, cream, onions, walnuts, Parmesan, bread, and the medium-heat ají amarillo (yellow chile) native to Peru. When you think about that dish and also potpie, as
