Chef Masaharu Morimoto, of Iron Chef and Iron Chef America fame, has created a bistro-style menu for his newest restaurant, Tribeca Canvas, which opens this Wednesday, November 28 at 313 Church Street. Tribeca Canvas will feature Morimoto's Asian interpretation of American comfort food. Think mac & cheese topped with a poached egg or escargot teriyaki. Delish. Even better is the fact that Tribeca Canvas will be open late – from 5 p.m. to 4 a.m Monday through Sunday. Dangerous... in a good way. (Tribeca Canvas)
If you've walked outside at all, you've surely noticed that boutiques and office buildings alike are whipping out their decorative holiday displays. If you haven't been outside at all (Thanksgiving will do that to you, we understand), be sure to visit Bulgari's 3-D light display in the shape of the brand's Serpenti diamond necklace. The display kicks off the luxe Italian brand's celebration of its iconic Serpenti collection and literally envelops the facade of the brand's boutique with more than 53 scales lit by thousands of LED bulbs. Now that's bling. (Bulgari)
