This dinner spot is Michael's meets The Waverly Inn (the former for who hangs out here, the latter for décor and food.) And it feels much as though it could have come straight out of a Jay McInerney book. This clubby gastropub – we don't know if they call it that, but this is what it feels like – has two levels of dining. Both in floors and elitism. The downstairs bar scene and dining room looks and feels like a tavern though the art work is the occasional Basquiat alongside flea market pieces. The upstairs comes complete with a rope and an “invitation to dine only” policy. Menu is burgers, foie gras torchon, tuna tartare, baby beet salads, oysters, lobster pot pie, a 28-day aged strip steak, dover sole for two and lamb porterhouse. Exactly the kind of food for which exec chef John DeLucie (Waverly) is known for. Funnily enough, while A-list actors and models are shuffled upstairs, we've taken our turn in the section and think the really fun scene is downstairs.
