Dear Midtown: We’ve got to admit. You’re getting more appealing. Putting a new Butter up there—sneaky.
And adding veal bacon to Butter’s repertoire was a stroke of genius. Is this wild-boar-with-grits dish
serious? Okay, you win. We’re intrigued... you crafty bastard.
That distinct lack of warmth you’re feeling—it’s not going away anytime soon. Here to help: this
temporary version of Williamsburg handsomeness authority Cadet, replete with Great Escape–worthy
shawl-collar coats and cashmere duffles. They laugh in the general direction of winter.
Through Dec 31, Cadet Pop-Up, 69 8th Ave (between 13th
and 14th), 917-722-2390
M. Wells Unchained
Scallop pot pie, mussels on a stick and tenderloin for two. This has been a list of “things it would take
to make you go to Queens.” And... consider it done. M. Wells is now a full-on French-Canadian dinner
operation and steakhouse in LIC. And yes, you read that right: mussels on a stick.
Taking reservations now, M. Wells Steakhouse, 43-15
Crescent St (between 43rd and 44th), Long Island City, 718-696-7863

LIKE A ROCK
The Gift of Rock Photography
It’s about that time when you start the annual journey of looking for trinkets for others. Our
recommendation: any of the work from this Rock Paper Photo pop-up. Which includes Beatles snaps from the
Help! set and mid-’80s Madonna shots. Which “others” should really love.
Through Dec 24, Exposure Holiday Pop-Up at Gallery
151, 132 W 18th St (between 6th and 7th)
