As far as shoemaking goes, the Brits at Grenson have pretty much nailed it. We mention this because you now
have easy access to the largest collection of their stuff ever to cross the pond. They’ve got a whole
pop-up at Freemans Sporting Club right now. And you’ve got feet.
The Fellow Barber gents have set up shop in the lobby of the Wythe Hotel. And they’re offering haircuts,
shaves, handsomer-than-necessary razor kits and the famous visage-rejuvenating hangover treatment. Or just
pop up to the roof for a hair of the dog.
Well, french toast had its time. Now is the era of wood-grilled raisin bread topped with ricotta and
blackberry preserves. As in, what you’ll feast on at Marco’s freshly extant brunch in Park Slope. Should
last you until somebody perfects sous-vide pancakes.
Sat-Sun, 11:30am-3:30pm, Marco’s, 295 Flatbush Ave
(between Prospect and St. Marks), Brooklyn, 718-230-0427, see the menu
Where the Oscars Should Be Watched
There’s a small industry get-together for film and acting professionals this weekend. Maybe you’ve
heard. Maybe you’d even like to celebrate it with a three-course dinner and a private-hotel-theater watch
party. If so, Crosby Street Hotel’s doing... all of that. Red-carpet attire is optional.
Mar 2, 7pm, dinner $35-$55, Crosby Street Hotel, 79 Crosby St (between Spring and Prince), reserve at 212-226-6400
SPLENDOR IN THE GRAS
At the Dutch: The Fattest Tuesday
Most inconsequential day of the week: Tuesday. Exceptions: When they’re “Fat.” Example: The Dutch. Andrew Carmellini’s seafood gumbo. Cocktails called Funky
Pirates, made with white whiskey, melon and lemon. The Afro-beat stylings of People’s Champs. Those
things are all happening this particular Tuesday for Mardi Gras. Good luck with Wednesday.
Mar 4, The Dutch, 131 Sullivan St (at Prince),
