NEW & NOTEWORTHY NYC | JULY 2016 / by Brackett Bilodeau

PERRINE
After the ultra-luxe Pierre Hotel’s recent restaurant facelift, the Upper East Side welcomes peppy Perrine, a brightly seasonal bistro helmed by Executive Chef Ashfer Biju. Indulgence is the name of the game with this whimsical-yet-demure wine-and-dine spot, alluring hotel guests and locals alike with brightly reimagined dishes and drinks against a breathtaking backdrop rife with natural light. Attaché Insider: pop by the hotel’s Rotunda before or after breakfast, lunch, or dinner (lest we forget brunch) for a peek at the newly unveiled design. Perrine’s patio is also slated to open in the coming weeks, boasting seating for 18.

AGERN
From the co-founder of Copenhagen’s revered Noma comes New York’s latest Nordic import, home to beautifully composed earthy flavors, a stunning open kitchen centerpiece, and dreamy design details from floor to ceiling in Grand Central’s Vanderbilt wing. Behind Agern, a sprawling food hall undergoes construction in a modern iteration of what was once Vanderbilt Hall, now serving Scandinavian specialties in a towering, sunny space, breathing new life into the station’s storied past. Visit Agern for a quiet dinner or a drink or two, or swing through Great Northern Food Hall for a quick bite in transit. Tell ‘em we sent you.
