So much mystery and possibility. So many wandering eyes in search of fleeting adventures. So many pizza ovens left behind by Wolfgang Puck.
Perhaps that last part is exclusive to Rambler, a new place to sip spiced-wine cocktails and go wherever the foie-gras-torchon-scented wind takes you, now open in the Hotel Zeppelin. Have a look around and a menu.
The team behind Sabrosa and the Brixton are involved here, along with a chef from Salt House and a bar star from Rich Table. And, yes, the space was formerly Wolfgang Puck’s Postrio, and his legendary pizza oven remains.
Now that you’re armed with a few talking points, pop in with a date or without a date and start exploring the two distinct spaces. There’s the brasserie with black-and-white tiles, brown leather everywhere and a glowing bar where they keep all the Miyata Mules with Japanese whiskey, kaffir and lemongrass.
And then there’s the cozy downstairs dining room with its soft gray banquettes and mid-century metal screens. That corner booth will do nicely for some wood-fired octopus and a bordelaise-topped, bone-in ribeye.
They always do.
