Noho's favorite dive has been reimagined as a "New Nordic" bistro, complete with a white-hot chef import: Mads Refslund, cofounder of Noma.
Vibe: Bustling yet upscale, with a downstairs lounge the owners insist is not a club. (Fashion Week parties told a different story.)
Clientele: Noma fans and fashion insiders (Terry Richardson, Carine Roitfeld).
Cuisine: Locally sourced Scandi fare: black cod with bone marrow and radishes.
Reservations: Via phone or website.
