Electric Lemon Opens in the Equinox Hotel


This will be the chef PJ Calapa’s foray into pan-Latin cuisine. The chef, a native of Brownsville, Tex., who worked for Altamarea Group and left to open Scampi in the Flatiron district, plans to feature a combination of Mexican, Argentine and Peruvian specialties at this restaurant. It occupies most of the lobby in the new Hotel Hendricks near Bryant Park, and will offer chile-rubbed short ribs, Peruvian chicken with rice, and Argentine beef carpaccio, as well as a number of tacos and skewers.

The specialty at this outpost of a ramen restaurant in Fukuoka, in southern Japan, is yobimodoshi, a process of making tonkotsu broth. The method calls for adding to what’s left in the soup pot from the day before, like an ever-simmering stockpot. In addition to ramen, there are grilled skewers of American Wagyu beef, vegetables wrapped in pork belly, and even skewered cheese.

Through early January at Spring Studios, a work space and photo studio in TriBeCa, you can travel to Japan and Zanzibar, among other destinations, without leaving New York. As part of an installation recreating striking restaurants through the Mastercard Priceless program, here diners can sit at a bar that looks exactly like Lyaness, an innovative London watering hole known for custom-designed drinks, complete with views of St. Paul’s Cathedral ($50 for two drinks). They can also have a 15-course sushi omakase ($395) at a line-by-line copy of Teruzushi in Kitakyushu, Japan, from the chef and owner Takayoshi Wantanabe, who closed the restaurant for the duration of the residency. Or they can enjoy a six-course tasting menu ($135) at The Rock, a small restaurant at water’s edge in Zanzibar, off Tanzania, where the view shows water lapping at the shore complete with the sounds and smells of the ocean. The roof has also been converted into a market run by the chef JJ Johnson, where drinks and small plates ($60 for one drink and two plates) are served. Starting July 31, reservations can be made at priceless.com/restaurant.
