Bow-tied barkeeps run the show at this velvet-seated Parisian spot in midtown’s Iroquois Hotel. There are four types of ice cubes to add life to the vintage 1920s cocktail list; the Poet’s Dream mingles gin, dry vermouth, Benedictine and a splash of orange bitters, and the Maison Charles is a refreshing mix of muddled mint, white rum and lime juice. Classic drinks are mad (from NYMag)

KEENS

72 W. 36th St., New York, NY 10018
at Sixth Ave.

Should Manhattan’s relentless frenzy for change ever wear you down, consider a restorative visit to this steadfast institution for urban carnivores. An iconic chophouse, Keens refuses to coast on its century-plus pedigree, proudly preserving its red-blooded menu along with its clubby Victorian mien. A warren of vintage-1885 rooms—from a splendid antique bar to chandeliered upstairs havens—harbor romantic tête-à-tête, single malt-fueled expense-account blowouts, and post-shopping or pretheater dinners. Many regulars eschew appetizers and desserts, focusing instead on impeccably cut, lovingly cooked, gargantuan slabs of meat. Keens’ signature dish is the mutton chop, a colossal roasted hunk of flavorful mature lamb (otherwise known as sheep).

In 1905, Lillie Langtry, the reigning actress of her day, won women the right to dine at Keens.

STUMPTOWN @ ACE HOTEL (NYC)

The only NY based cafe for the Portland based roasters – Red Hook Tasting aside – and another link-up with hipster Ace Hotels. A gem in the middle of Manhattan but with standing room only in the cafe, grab a coffee here and head into Ace Hotel’s lobby and sink into a sofa or sit at the big shared tables. Loads of retail beans here too, if you’re in town for a bit.
