UD - The Ramen Burger’s Here for a While
IN THE NOOD

The Ramen Burger’s Here for a While

So that ramen burger—the one from Smorgasburg with the compressed noodle bun—it’s not just at Smorgasburg anymore. For the next month, they’ll have a new version each week at the ramen temple that is Dassara. The first one’s topped with pork belly. Which... of course.

UD - The New Place to Be in Meatpacking
NEVERMORE

The New Place to Be in Meatpacking

When a brand-new den of hedonism... with an Edgar Allan Poe theme... starts a new monthly party series... inspired by French film noir... and they request your presence... it’s best not to say no. So don’t.

411:

Sep 19, 8pm, Man Ray Noir: Une Fête Coquette at The Raven, 55 Gansevoort St (between 9th and Washington)

UD - Maybe the Best Views in Town. With Beer.
TAKE ME TO THE RIVER

Maybe the Best Views in Town. With Beer.

Stunning views of the GW bridge. More than two dozen beers. A sweeping alfresco setup in a state park on the Hudson. Chicken. Waffles. Stop us when something doesn’t sound good. All of it’s... admittedly very uptown at Riverbank Grill. Because that’s where they put those things.

411:

Now open, Riverbank Grill at Riverbank State Park, 679 Riverside Dr (at 145th), 212-234-1023

UD - The Strand’s First Pop-Up Is Here...
TAKE A STRAND

The Strand’s First Pop-Up Is Here...

... and it pares the store’s famous 20 miles of books down to the essentials. Like signed Mailer first editions. And leather Damien Hirst photo collections. And an embossed-cover version of Breakfast of Champions. Doesn’t read right if it’s not embossed leather.

411:

Sep 19-22, The Strand Pop-Up at Sloan-Kettering Thrift Shop, 1440 3rd Ave (near 81st) 

Saturday

UD - The Standard Biergarten Does Oktoberfest
HIGH STANDARD

The Standard Biergarten Does Oktoberfest

Oh right, Oktoberfest. You almost forgot. As penance, you should probably take down some cheddar kurtwurst and grüner veltliner at the Standard Biergarten. On Saturday, there’ll be a live German band to heartily and efficiently encourage your beer consumption.
