Jason Santos’s Gorgeous New Restaurant
Things you can never have too many of:
New Theatre District restaurants. From a Hell’s Kitchen
Meet that last one: Abby Lane
, a stunner from Blue Inc. maestro Jason Santos with two floors, an
open kitchen and tons of Italian leather, slated to open this Tuesday.
Let’s get right to it: this is your new
American bistro/sexy, dimly lit lounge hybrid
to bookend a night of high-culture entertainment at the
Wang or Wilbur Theatre (see: Larry the Cable Guy).
With a date on your arm, you’ll start the night by grabbing a high-top in view of the open kitchen on the
first floor. Then, cover your nightly truffle bases with some truffle-cream-laden baked mac and
cheese, or just a Pizza Bianco
(made with truffle oil). For your date: the Caesar salad
featured during Santos’s Hell’s Kitchen
season. (Or, you know, whatever she wants.)
After the show, you’ll return and beeline it upstairs, sinking into an Italian leather throne and drinking
in the stretch views of the Wang Theatre under Edison-esque bulbs.
Also worth drinking: several Maple Rye Manhattans
, made with maple liquor and maple syrup, and
served in old-timey long-stem barware.
Go ahead, raise a pinkie.
