The only thing better than football season is Super Bowl night. Friends, food, and brews. That's really all you need for a good time. Oh, and a prime spot to view it all. We've got the best spots to watch the Ravens and 49ers duke it out and with plenty of special deals, everyone will go home a winner.
The Windsor & The Windsor Gansevoort Park: Recently opened, Windsor Gansevoort Park will be throwing an off-the-hook superbowl party starting at 4pm. There will be a live DJ accompanying the four large flat screens that line the walls. Each banquet also has its own personal flat screen TV. The Windsor's original location will also be throwing a viewing party along with fresh, seasonal cocktails and gourmet comfort food.
All NYCers know the famous chef David Burke, who climbed to notoriety with his slew of restaurants and Food Network appearances. The CIA graduate has a plethora of restos to choose from in New York City, so whether you're uptown or downtown, there's a place for you to stop and eat.
David Burke at Bloomingdales is the perfect spot for shoppers to plop down and relax amidst their bag-carrying day, whether it's at their 50-seater dine-in, or at Burke in the Box, the 35-seater casual side of the resto with an open kitchen.
I arrive at the luxurious James New York hotel in SoHo to interview the host of Spike's new series "Bar Rescue" and the president of Nightclub & Bar Media Group.
“Bar Rescue” follows Jon Taffer, also head of consulting firm Taffer Dynamics, as he refashions failing drinking establishments and teaches struggling bar owners across the country how to get back in business. The show explores every facet of the bar industry, whether it’s creating a profitable drink/food menu, handling rowdy customers, re-training or replacing the staff, and creating the perfect atmosphere. In each episode Taffer brings in a team of carefully hand-picked experts, which include everyone from his lovely wife Nicole (who goes incognito to provide a woman's point of view), to expert mixologist Michael Tipps, who's worked as bar manager for the SoHo and Tribeca Grand Hotels in NYC.
