Deveaux, for Way Less Than Usual

Deveaux, for Way Less Than Usual

The SS17 collection is 40% off over at Deveaux, both online and down in their Tribeca showroom. Which is excellent timing, on account of it still being summer ’17 and all. Also because the collection includes things like perfectly fitting white knit tees, sand-colored suede pants and other things to make you the handsomest human at any barbecue this summer might present.

For four evenings this summer, you can get all the Southern food you expect from Root & Bone in the adjoining flower-filled garden next door. The first is this Friday: expect unlimited beer and wine, surprisingly beautiful deviled eggs, their killer fried chicken, biscuits, mac-and-cheese, and many successful dates happening simultaneously.

Jun 2, 5:30pm & 8pm, $80, Root & Bone, 200 E 3rd St (between Ave A and Ave B), call 646-682-7076 for reservations

Happy 2nd Birthday, Black Flamingo

We’d say a (gratis) dance party with Wolf+Lamb on the decks sounds like a proper way to celebrate. We can’t see you, but we’ll assume you’re enthusiastically nodding in agreement.

Fare Thee Well, PUBLIC. Fare Thee Well.

Fare Thee Well, PUBLIC. Fare Thee Well.

Well, after 14 years, the time has come to wave goodbye to the Michelin-starred Nolita institution PUBLIC. But not before one last meal involving smoked kangaroo carpaccio, fried oysters in shisho leaves, and ricotta cavatelli with poached lobster. Then, and only then, shall we wave.

Closing Jun 3, PUBLIC, 210 Elizabeth St (between Prince and Spring), call 212-343-7011 for reservations

A Solid Start to This Nordic Dinner Series

A Solid Start to This Nordic Dinner Series

Chef Mark Lundgaard, straight out of Copenhagen’s oldest gourmet (and Michelin-starred) restaurant Kong Hans Kælder, is the first Nordic chef taking over the kitchen at n’eat this summer—and his menu’s set to combine French classics with Nordic minimalism. Translation: scallops with smoked butter and caviar, monkfish roasted on the bone, lemon fromage with lemon sorbet, etc.

Jun 5, $175 with optional $95 beverage pairing, n’eat, 58 2nd Ave (between E 3rd and E 4th), RSVP here
