Chef Scott Swiderski (Union Square Cafe, Buddakan) oversees a raw-bar and seafood menu at this Art Deco midtown lounge. Look for whole lobsters doused with butter, grilled steelhead salmon and raw bivalves garnished with horseradish grated tableside. At the 38-foot-long marble bar, bartenders execute drinks like Manhattans (served with a touch of Grand Marnier) and champagne cocktails sweetened with fresh fruit like honeydew and cantaloupe. Suds hounds can dive into a menu of 20 drafts and 20 bottles, focused on German brews like a Schneider Aventinus bock, as well as homegrown beers like Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. In addition to the sixteen TVs, a 15-by-ten-foot projection screen displays football games and live events like the Oscars.
