Top Chef contender Ty-Lör Boring wants to serve you a private feast, right in your home. (Yes, his food’s as good as his name.) Also, our friends at Rancourt & Co. designed limited-edition boat shoes you won’t see elsewhere. And great news: we (finally) found an iPhone case that opens beer bottles.
Things to do for May 17, 2012
Wine on the High Line, Acme Brunch and Suiting Up
If you’d like to reach the weekend, please hang up and try again.
Some Clean New Vestments in the MPD
A speckled Surface to Air blazer. Yeah, it’s just crazy enough to work. And this new paper-bag-adorned (just check it out) Meatpacking haus of perfectly weird/natty summer gear is where you’re going to find such a thing. We assume you’ve been looking.
Standing on Top of Gramercy Park Hotel
The sun is fighting through. And the rooftops of Manhattan are opening to you. God, you love it when they do that. Your latest conquest: this foliage-lined, brand-new Danny Meyer paradise 17 stories over Gramercy Park. You’ll make “roof” a verb if it’s the last thing you do.
Acme Conquers Brunch
Your heart has already been stolen by the oddly satisfying foraged beet salad sensibilities of Acme. And now, they’re making a brunch out of it all. Expect beer and bread porridge, alcoholized cucumber and duck sausage. It’s like they’ve been reading your thoughts.
Todd Snyder Sets Up Shop at Odin
You may have heard. If not, you’re hearing—Todd Snyder has stepped into suiting. The natty downtown luminaries of Odin are hosting a pop-up of his unlined, American-made summer creations through June. Your “10 new suits by July” initiative doesn’t seem so crazy now.
The Official Wine Bar of the High Line
Nothing could improve summer walks on the High Line... is a total lie. Because it’s pretty clear that this new stopover, which includes veal and ricotta meatball subs and wines selected by a James Beard Award winner, would do wonders for that walk. Honesty is the best policy.
