Not the sticky leatherette binder you’re used to
Mar 23, 2015 1:00 pm

The menus at New York City cocktail bar the Dead Rabbit have always colored outside the lines. While most American watering holes are still going with the classic leatherette binders — with their sticky pages — the award-winning Water Street bar has put out a new menu/mini novel every year.

Spring Preview 2015: 8 New York City Restaurants That Will Open Soon

Here are the openings to look out for this season
Mar 20, 2015 9:00 am

New York City, a place of perpetual chef churn and restaurant turnover, takes a bit of a breather from the openings in the winter months. Working cooks take vacations (on the Caribbean festival circuit and otherwise) and media members would rather catch up on Game of Thrones than schlep to a launch event. It’s a welcome pause for all involved. But come March, everything starts to pick back up again. The plywood starts to peel off like a Canada Goose jacket on a 60-degree day, and everybody gets excited about eating at restaurants again. Here are eight to get excited about.

In Manhattan’s legendary Little Italy neighborhood, swarms of tourists walk Mulberry Street daily in search of an authentic bowl of pasta fazool and perhaps a story about Matty the Horse Ianniello, who ran his gangland empire out of Umbertos Clam House in the 1970s. Or maybe the tourists are only there for the cheap T-shirts. It’s hard to tell these days, as the neighborhood has followed the borough’s recent path toward Disneyfication. But if you know where to look, there are still truly memorable spots to visit — both old and new. On a recent Friday afternoon, I took a walk around lower Manhattan and met a crew of characters. Here are their stories.
