There's no shortage of hot spots to try in New York City, so here's where we're eating, drinking, and staying this weekend.
Where to Eat: King
This chic Soho restaurant from River Café alums Jess Shadbolt and Clare de Boer serves a menu of new dishes every night. And, with their newly integrated lunch menu, the spot offers a plethora of French-Mediterranean options for all. Enjoy a glass of wine at the casual bar in the front of house or a sit-down meal with a friend in the dining room.
Where to Drink: Sel Rrose
This romantic wine bar in the Bowery gets its name from Rrose Sélavey, the female alter ego of French artist Marcel Duchamp. And the space, meitculously designed to encapsulate the feel of early 20th century Paris, is a watering hole for artists and musicians alike. Grab a cocktail or natural wine and stay a while—the spot comes alive at night.
Where to Stay: The Standard, East Village
The Standard in the East Village may be the perfect post-work week respite. The luxury rooms are equip with custom bathroom ammenities, overstocked minibars, Wi-Fi, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Don't miss the charming spot's chic restaurants and cafes, including John Fraser's Narcissa, narcbar, and Café Standard.
