Italian Omakase at Maialino. Get Hungry.

You’ve always thought taking risks was essential. So you’ll be happy to know that putting your life and hunger in the chef’s hands at Maialino with four courses of family-style deliciousness is possible with their new Ci Pensiamo Noi (basically, Italian omakase). Yeah, probably not much of a risk.

SALE-ING

Levi’s Made & Crafted for a Song

Levi’s. You recall hearing the name, somewhere along the line. And right now you can stock up on their spring-weight denim and maybe a few Western shirts from the Made & Crafted and Vintage Clothing operations for a lot less than usual. They seem to know their way around denim.

Friday

UD - World-Class Poolside Sushi in SoHo
KOI POND

World-Class Poolside Sushi in SoHo

Koi’s crispy rice and spicy tuna is one of the great Japanese-ish dishes in this city. Pools are one of the great aquatic structures to swim in. And here’s when you find out how those things connect. Koi’s taking over the poolside bar at the Trump SoHo. Logic, meet sushi.
