TV viewers may know chef Alex
Guarnaschelli from The Food Network's "Chopped" but she's been a presence on the New York food scene for many years, and is held in great respect by the NYC chef community. Having made her bones at Guy Savoy in Paris and Daniel in New York, she brings polished French skills to cool downtown restaurants Butter and The Darby, the latter of which also features live music and a (too) lively atmosphere. Her lobster newburg is more than enough to make it worthwhile, even for a curmudgeon like myself.

This swanked-out cabaret and supper club (from the 1OAK /Butter team) hosts dapper ladies and gents digging into decadent food (think oyster-stuffed steaks) while bopping to jazzy music and generally getting their Sinatra on.
