Things to do for June 21, 2013

The Weekender

Montmartre, Schnabel and the Breslin

The weekend: the pause that refreshes.

Friday
Montmartre Has a Back Garden Now
FULL MONTY

Montmartre Has a Back Garden Now

There’s a time and a place for a perfect Provençal garden in Chelsea. And after a little research, we’ve decided that time is now. And that place: the Montmartre garden, where you’re hitting monkfish, Hong Kong–style french toast and escargot toast with a vengeance. Because monkfish requires vengeance.

Back garden now open, Montmartre, 158 8th Ave (at 18th), 646-596-8838

Party Brunching with the French
IN BLOOM

Party Brunching with the French

If you asked for world-class cocktails from the Mulberry Project folks, and then you said something like “Also, I want a French party brunch where people dance on tables,” you’d have this. It just took over Vinatta Project, and party brunches start on June 28. Good luck.

Julian Schnabel’s Inviting You Over
... ES SU CASA

Julian Schnabel’s Inviting You Over

Julian Schnabel. Artist. Director. Pajama enthusiast. And now: your host. He’s converted part of his pinker-than-pink house (dubbed Palazzo Chupi) into a gallery where he’ll be displaying his friends’ work. Be sure you consult the gallery-warming gift guide before showing up.

Tue-Sat, noon-6pm, Casa del Popolo, 360 W 11th St (between Washington and West), 212-627-7011

The Breslin Is Going Family-Style
THE BRESIDENT

The Breslin Is Going Family-Style

We’re going to assume you know 11 hungry people. Because as of now, April Bloomfield does family-style feasts for 12 at the Breslin. This month, she’s frying chicken in duck fat, and next month it’ll be a massive lobster boil. To be clear: the boil’s massive, not the lobsters.

Wednesday
An All-Night Latin Social Club
TU VUÒ FÀ L’AMERICANO

An All-Night Latin Social Club

It’s rude to turn down invitations to sexy Latin parties. Which is why, out of decorum, you should clear your Wednesday evening schedule for this all-night Valhalla of Mexican fernet shots, jalapeño margaritas, late-night tacos al pastor and a “you can dance if you want to” policy. Great policy.

Wednesdays, Night of the Jaguar at Los Americanos, 305 Church St (between Walker and Lispenard), 212-680-0101
