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.
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.

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.
Now open, Riverbank Grill at Riverbank State
Park, 679 Riverside Dr (at 145th), 212-234-1023
... 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.
Sep 19-22, The Strand Pop-Up at Sloan-Kettering
Thrift Shop, 1440 3rd Ave (near 81st)
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.
