Each week, Gotham editor-in-chief Samantha Yanks curates the very best of what’s new in New York. Spend your weekend discovering the top places to shop, exercise, and eat around the city….
Toro chef/partner Ken Oringer and his team will bring a pop-up of Oringer’s Boston restaurant UNI to Toro: NYC for one night only on Tuesday, March 28. The 10-course omakase menu will highlight sashimi, nigiri, makimono, and Asian street food. Email [email protected] for reservations. 85 10th Ave., 212-691-2360
Visit Taryn Toomey’s stunning new studio and take The Class for the most amazing workout ever. It doesn’t hurt that the space boasts crystal-lined floors and sound-studio quality music, either. 22 Park Pl., Third Fl., 646-850-0937
WANT Apothecary in NoMad is the chic new spot for designers like Acne Studios and Jil Sander, plus a curated selection of their signature WANT Les Essentiels’ luxury travel accessories. The apothecary counter has some of my favorite beauty brands, like Byredo Parfums and Susanne Kaufmann. 301 W. Fourth St., 646-398-7584
For exercise junkies like me, download the just-launched SwitchFit. It’s the first app for fitness aficionados that allows access to the city’s most coveted studios, gyms, and trainers without memberships, limits, or commitments. Users can choose from top studios like Rumble, Tone House, and Fhitting Room in NYC.
New Yorkers will sample conveyor belt sushi at Yo!'s first NYC location, opening March 16. 23 W. 23rd St., 646-781-8640
