  • Tobacco Road
    355 W. 41st St. | West 40s

    Tobacco Road bills itself as Manhattan's "most down-to-earth rock-and-roll venue." We're not sure how down-to-earth bikini-clad waitresses and midget strippers are--both of which it also... More on Tobacco Road »

  • Chelsea Piers

    Surf Ave. & W. 8th St. | Coney Island

  • España/Streb Trapeze Academy
    51 N. First St. | Williamsburg

  • When one restaurant's doors close, another restaurant's doors open in fast-paced New York City, and every Friday we'll fill you in on what opened up around town this week. This week: a soba restaurant above a sushi mainstay, a grilled cheese joint in Bushwick, and a Paris wine bar finds a home stateside. Daruma-Ya, 428 Greenwich Street, 212-274-0428 The restaurant above Sushi Azabu is now... More on Daruma-Ya »
