THE NEW ROOF
Put the folks behind the Monarch, a partner in Chinese Tuxedo and a chef from Rouge Tomate together in a room, and what you’re going to get, apparently, is 6,000 square feet of duck breast and loin of lamb on a bottom floor, and a rooftop of sexy cocktails and sexy views 37 floors above the earth. So this union was a success.
THE HIGH-CONCEPT FIESTA
You’ve got four courses of Mexicanity in the form of too-good empanadas, al pastor pork belly and the like, all paired with mezcal or tequila cocktails. You’ve got it at Craftbar. These are the facts you must work with.
