Don’t gasp aloud, as I did, when you see the $70 glass of wine on the menu (welcome to Manhattan kiddies!). Scan down and you’ll see that there are also $11 glasses on offer, and the staff are too genteel here to look down their decanters at you if you go for the cheaper option. Whatever you drink, you’ll feel like Midas, tippling away in a room that’s literally glittering—from the 20-foot-high ceilings are hung dozens of twinkling light bulbs, and, around them, fine works of contemporary art. Grab a spot on one of the plush couches and pretend you’re one of the “masters of the universe” who sip wine here regularly
