Cross an Irish publican and a Greek-American restaurateur, and what do you get? Ulysses’, a sprawling pub and extension of the financial-district fiefdom that encompasses Bayard’s, Financier Patisserie, and Harry's Steak and Cafe. Peter Poulakakos and partners Michael Jewell and Danny McDonald have equipped a onetime banquet room with a profusion of County Clare sandstone, wooden ceiling beams, and a 130-foot bar. That’s where McDonald will demonstrate the award-winning Guinness-pulling technique he honed at Puck Fair and Swifts Hibernian Lounge, both of which he co-owns. There's also a cafeteria-style carvery and raw bar.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
