Chef-owner Ralf Kuettel is staging the Swiss Metzgete feast at his Chelsea bistro to show New York how to do a harvest feast right. Apparently the trick is using every last bit of the annual pork supply, and reaping the rewards in the form of festival-sized plates of braised pork belly, boudin noir and homemade bratwurst. Ah, culture.
Things to do for January 17, 2008
The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend welcomes Monday to the family.
The new Bond Street residents are housewarming with 60% off
fall overstock and spring samples. And they haven't unpacked their credit card
swiper yet, so bring some bills.
411: Jan 18 through 20, 11am-8pm, 28 Bond St (between Lafayette and Bowery).
Rothman's Warehouse Sale
Overcome with generosity, the Union Square staple is offering regular merchandise at 40% off, including suits and overcoats from Penguin, John Varvatos, and Theory.
The cupcake magnates are taking their sprinkles uptown to open their second store. Officially on 69th Street, the line may stretch into midtown.
Morning in NoHo just got a little friendlier, with the impeccable East Village taperia serving up Berkshire pork hash, Iberico ham sandwiches and, naturally, Spanish omelets. They're also now open until 2am on weekend nights, if you're not much of a morning person.
Luger's neighbor, with a brazen move that may start a meat-fueled turf war, is stepping up its steak game with grass-fed meats butchered in-house, dry-aged and served in cuts massive enough for six people per porterhouse.
