Flowing cocktails, selfies, the view. The Roots!
Oct 7, 2014 12:30 pm

Around 100 people are sitting at small two-tops under a very expensive chandelier 65 floors above Rockefeller Center, sipping good champagne and cocktails mixed with hip Brooklyn gin.

Sep 22, 2014 9:00 am

In a tiny kitchen in brownstone Brooklyn restaurant Bergen Hill, chef Andrew D'Ambrosi is running one of the most-inventive seafood restaurants in America.

Here's one of them.
