The Pen Is Mightier
3 Ways to Use Clement and The Bar at Clement
So, we can either talk about the Giants, the government shutdown, this weather or dinner.
Dinner it is.
Specifically, dinner at Clement
and The Bar at Clement
, a couple airy new companion spots
at the Peninsula. They’re open now. Herewith, three ways to deploy them...
1. Execute the perfect power meal while overlooking 5th Ave.
There are three large
rooms of white-tableclothed classicism
here. One’s filled with mirrors, one’s got fake books
sticking out of the walls, and one’s adorned with a relief of Central Park. Feel it out. See which is
right for you.
2. Take advantage of one of the sexiest seats in town.
At the low-lit bar, there’s a
corner nook. And in that nook, a secluded banquette. And that banquette... pulls right up to the bar. You
know what to do. And it involves ordering some Sassafras Cobblers
(a rye-and-pickled-blueberry deal in a sassafras-leaf-lined
3. Dinner for 12.
Let’s say relatives will visit in the coming months. Let’s say
their happiness can be won with helpings of Elysian Fields lamb. Behind an inconspicuous sliding door in one
of the main dining rooms is a single-table private dining room for about a dozen where you’ll handle
Booking for Festivus as we speak.
