We’ve got 10 reasons to be glad you’re in the City this summer, nine of them air-conditioned venues and one in the great outdoors. Among them: a square-slice pizzeria in Williamsburg, a very fancy French place in SoHo and a fried chicken joint in Red Hook from a popular TV personality.
Since a new study shows that eating animal fat and butter might prolong life—and not even lead to weight gain!—what better time to visit a new French bistro that’s a paradise for poultry and rich terrines?
