On one of Hell’s Kitchen’s classier and greener blocks, this brainchild of DJ/sommelier Juan Coronado and restaurateur Eric Macaire (of the Bubble Lounge and Jubilee) has the feel of a scene while staying comfortably removed from scenester foot traffic. Early evenings the place swarms with Time and Sony suits cashing in on the after-work happy hour food and drink special, while hipper Hell’s Kitchen pioneers pile in for the same deal after midnight. DJs mix a hodge-podge of world music, lounge, and electronica that works well with a sultry red and black interior full of banquettes and divans and a private back foyer—all of it channeling a back-alley Left Bank bistro with a touch of twenties bordello. A hyper-educated wine and champagne list accompanies tapas-style eats while 50-plus imported artisanal beers, such as Belgian golden ale Le Chouffe, beg for mussels and frites. The house cocktails are exotic but drinkable: The Madagascar mixes house-infused basil vodka with fig and lychee puree.
