Wise Men is named after the first Western-style steak house in Chinatown, which the owner's family opened. A team of three creative women, photographer Danielle Levitt, S magazine creative director Christina Chin, and hospitality vet Caroleyn Ng, is behind this place, and it shows in the sexy, architectural decor. Set designer Andy Harman equipped the restaurant (which can fit 74 people) with a twenty-foot mixed marble bar, dark mirrors, red banquettes, chandeliers, and marble flooring, à la Venice. In a bar-heavy area that's all about modernizing, Wise Men's a much-appreciated nod to old-school New York meat and cocktail.
