British private club meets New York City edge – 9 Jones will be the new intimate, sultry supper club with an interactive bespoke cocktail experience nestled in the heart of the West Village. The brainchild of a collective of gatekeepers behind some of New York's most iconic hospitality and nightlife destinations, allowing them to create the Perfect Room – a sophisticated, sexy vibe, with atmosphere curators including Richard Wheeler (fashion label Emperors New Clothes, 1Oak), Josh Angel (1Oak, Nebula, and legendary Greenhouse), Yiannis Vasilas (Queens Room, Bar Room) and Carmelo Anthony.
As guests enter the space, the venue's handsome petrol blue walls are welcoming, warm, and posh, adorned with gold touches and paired beautifully with plush velvet seating for comfortable conversations over bites and drinks.
Custom large-scale photographic works from New York-based Atelier Las Amazonas will populate the front of the space with a mix of landscapes and tasteful nudes, invoking a Mykonos, Santorini "lost summer." The back of the space, marked by a velvet curtain, will offer a discrete hideaway for the venue's most elite clientele – complete with a one-way mirror looking out and its own secret entrance.
Once seated, guests can select from an assortment of well-crafted signature drinks or its showstopping vintage black and gold Cocktail Trolley Service. The trolley will be rolled to individual tables and filled with fresh-made mixers, garnishes, and recipes tailored to the guests' spirit of choice to create bespoke cocktails. Dinner will include a classic Greek menu with crave-able and vibrant dishes to complement the memorable imbibing and dining experience.

The new opening of Carriage House will offer nostalgia with an elevated twist. Located in a restored townhouse that dates back to the 1800s (and former Carriage House), the new West Village jaunt will pay homage to the iconic neighborhood and building through design and modern American, fine dining menu.
Spearheaded by triple threat Chef/Owner Chris Maier (The Nell, Employees Only), Restaurateur/TV Personality Jordan Andino (Flip Sigi), and Owner/Operator Philip Testa (Tao Group), the highly anticipated American-Brasserie style restaurant will offer a relaxed yet vibrant fine dining ambiance with an exciting menu keeping diners on their toes.
The new menu helmed by Executive Chef Chris Maier will include re-imagined childhood classics and dishes from the bygone era like ‘Peanut Butter and Jelly’, Duck TV Dinner, and Tuna ‘Casserole’, flipped on their heads and elevated with high-quality ingredients and French technique.
Think foie gras, chicken liver and berry, roasted duck plated in compartments (tv dinner style), and tuna sashimi, daikon, and wonton. Three separate rooms will provide different dining experiences, including a chef's tasting menu that combines fine dining with a high energized atmosphere for a unique and unforgettable dining experience.

New fine dining and traditional Peruvian fusion restaurant Artesano will open in Tribeca this fall. The term Artesano means ‘hand crafted’ and will apply to literally everything with imported and handmade stone bowls and plates from South America to the ingredients, design, and cuisine.
Artesano will be spearheaded by Peru’s brightest rising star chef Rodrigo Fernadini, an industry up-and-comer who has trained top Peruvian and international restaurants, even training under Michelin-starred chefs.
Now, Fernandini is cooking up something special for New York, that will marry traditional Peruvian gastronomy and technique with a New York flair.
Bringing the brand new concept to life at 90 Chambers Street with his business partner, David Cabrera, the space will have an open kitchen format with wood accents and greenery throughout to highlight the nature-rich country within the bustling city.
Other partners include influencer and food enthusiast Atif Ali, owner of The Delicious Life, and co-founder of Next Round Mixology with master mixologist Roman Cervantes.
