If we told you we predict that you’re not going to open a single bottle of wine this summer, you’d call us... something unsavory. Probably “dum-dum.” If we told you that’s because Perks has a highly advanced device that lets you pour wine without pulling the cork, you’d... probably nod in agreement and then apologize for before.
Things to do for May 25, 2016
Waterfront Beers, Wagyu Hash and Caddyshack
We see you’ve got your brand-new leopard-skin pill-box weekend.
Float. Drink Beers. Maybe Go for a Kayak.
It’s not summer until the industrial pop-up bar and restaurant and place-to-retrieve-kayaks opens on the water in Greenpoint, offering grilled fish tacos, pulled-pork- and Korean-chili-topped fries, and spiced rum punch. If you’re into “doing things,” there’re fishing, kayaking and sailing sessions. So... get ready to make things official.
To the Wythe, for Apolis
For the next few months, this LA-based brand will be posted up in the Wythe Hotel. Go, check out their limited-edition Brooklyn market bags, buy yourself some handsome crewnecks, linen shorts and nice-looking glassware. Nothing like some good, solid glassware shopping.
Le Turtle Has Boarded the Brunch Train
Wagyu hash: here. French toast with coffee whipped cream: also here. Creamy oats with peppered bacon: here. The answer to your next question is: here.
Just a Real Solid Memorial Day Option
Should you be staying local for the three-day weekend, consider spending one day here. On account of the hard-cider-glazed ribs, a two-hole mini-golf course and a Caddyshack matinee. That’s why.
What Else Is New
Omakase, Hummus and a Per Se Chef
For wild-caught, Japan-imported omakase: You’ve got chef Masaki Saito and his team of
master sushi chefs on 5th Ave.
For some exceptional hummus: There’s this Philly-hailing hummus stand in Chelsea Market (pictured).
For roasted hen in a quaint garden: A Per Se and Alinea vet just opened this spot in Prospect Heights. Expect rhubarb-tequila drinks, carrot crepes with sunflower and clams, and other spectacularly summery-sounding things.
