The operators behind Tribe, Vig 27, and Punch and Judy bring the formula that has made their Park Avenue South restaurant-lounge PS 450 successful to the subterranean midtown space vacated by Light. Mahogany and dark-cherry woods emit a speakeasy feel in honor of namesake Andrew Volstead, the teetotaling congressman behind Prohibition. Older business lunchers cede to younger professionals who come later in the night for D.J.'s, brown-liquor cocktails, and tapas.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
