Odeon, The Kitchen, and Dover Street Market: Begum Yasar’s New York

By Whitewall

March 2, 2016

It’s Armory Arts Week! That means fairs, gallery shows, museum exhibitions, and plenty of events – all taking place here in New York. We are here to guide you through the must-see and be-seen-at spots around town. All week-long we’ll bring you “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, eat, and drink. Next up, Director of Dominique Lévy gallery, Begum Yasar.

Odeon is a classic, and the food always lives up to expectations. I live close and some nights I’ll go alone and get a burger and a martini at the bar. En Japanese Brasserie is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. It has very serious sashimi, an extensive sake menu, and a great ambiance. The private rooms are perfect for a group dinner on a special occasion.

I always enjoy visiting the Morgan Library and in addition to the great exhibitions they do, it’s always great to come back to Pierpont Morgan’s library and walk through the marble columned rotunda and admire the ceiling paintings that depict the ancient world, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance.

The classic New York downtown art non-profits: the Kitchen and Artists Space. Without exception they put on rigorous, important and timely exhibitions with an amazing public program of talks and events. I have discovered and re-discovered many a great artist at these two institutions.

I love discovering new designers and seeing some of the more courageous pieces by established designers at Totokaelo and Dover Street Market.
