THE UPSTATE EXPERIENCE

LOWLIFE

City life beginning to get to you? � en head to Lowlife on the

Lower East Side, where pine-panelled walls, handsome leather

banquettes, patterned cushions and a menu brimming with

Catskills ingredients will transport you to upstate New York

(where co-owner Hugh Crickmore's brother owns a farm). � e

short and snappy seasonal menu will take you even further a€ eld,

with its emphasis on Japanese ƒ avours and beautiful presentation:

acorn squash with maitake and house-made tofu, black bass

with mussels and matsutake, chicken yakitori with scallion and

smoked cabbage are typical of the output of talented chef Alex

Leonard, ex of two-Michelin-starred Blanca.

THE SO

HIP

IT

HURTS HANGOUT

LE TURTLE

Even if you don't eat here, check out Le Turtle's trippy website,

which gives a hint of what you'll € nd inside: velvet and leather

furnishings illuminated by neon lights, and staŠ in grey jumpsuits

going about their work to a soundtrack of French hip-hop.

What's probably New York's best whole roast chicken is the star

turn, paraded to your table on a bed of burning hay before being

returned to the kitchen to be carved into crisp and

juicy slices; elsewhere on the menu oxtail with

celery breadcrumbs and fresh horseradish, and

kohlrabi bisque with lamb belly, smoked cabbage

and pickled mustard seeds win points for creativity.

THE ESSENTIAL HOTEL RESTAURANT

THE CLOCKTOWER

Squaremeal favourite Jason Atherton opened his

€ rst US restaurant, � e Clocktower, at the New

York Edition hotel last year. Drop in for dinner

of tuna tataki and North African spiced Colorado

lamb, with maybe one last milk punch in the Gold

Bar, then stagger back to your room. Ours had a

picture postcard view of Madison Square Park and

a corking view of the Empire State Building. � e room itself was

the acme of modern comfort, all oak ƒ oors and white furnishings,

with piles of pillows festooning a bed you won't want to leave, and

cult beauty favourite Le Labo in the bathroom.
