Maguy und Gilber Lecoze kamen 1986 von Paris nach New York, wollten ein elegantes Restaurant etablieren und einfach nur kochen und Fischgerichte zubereiten. Damals konnte keiner ihren unglaublichen Erfolg auch nur ahnen. Seitdem hat das Restaurant jedes Jahr 4 Sterne erhalten. Sogar als Gilbert starb und der Chefkoch Eric Ripert sein Nachfolger wurde, hat die Liebe und Hingabe angehalten mit der jedes Gericht zubereitet wird. Obwohl es teuer ist, gibt es kaum etwas Vergleichbares in Amerika und auch nur wenige dieser Art in Europa. Ein Mittagessen zu USD 32 oder USD 42 (EUR 35,60 oder EUR 46,70) könnte ein gedankenvoller erster Schritt sein. Abendessen beginnen ab USD 75 (EUR 83,40) und nach oben sind keine Grenzen gesetzt - leider!
Diese Bar, die sich in dem ehemaligen Privatbüro Grand Central von John W. Campbell befindet, nutzt ihre spektakuläre Lage voll und ganz aus. Luxuriöse Originaldetails wie bleiverglaste Fenster und ein Kamin schaffen das Ambiente der goldenen Zeit, weshalb der Ort auch unter sozialen Aufsteigern so beliebt ist. An der Bar sind, natürlich, Zigarren erhältlich. Bezüglich der Getränkepreise lässt sich sagen: Wer vorher fragen muss, sollte besser woanders hingehen.
PDT (which stands for Please Don't Tell) is a "secret" bar on St. Mark's Place. A call from a phone booth in Crif Dogs (the adjacent restaurant) is the only way to get in. Once accepted, a secret door opens up in the phone booth, leading to PDT. It's not much of a secret anymore though, because the club is hugely popular. Once inside, you'll find a crowded bar area steeped in darkness. The inventive cocktail selection is superb and a major draw. If you're hungry you can also order from the Crif Dogs food menu, which gets delivered to the club via a small pass. A visit to PDT is quite an interesting experience indeed.
