Albert Cummings is what we youngin’s like to call a legend in the music industry. The New England native is one of the most known and respected blues musicians out there, and who has played alongside other legendary players in the game including Buddy Guy and B.B.

There is nothing wrong, especially on the weekends, with enjoying your scrambled eggs while scantily clad women dance in front of you for your pleasure. No, I am not talking about a strip club here, I’m talking about Doux Supperclub and their fantastic balance of mouthwatering cuisine mixed with live entertainment that will delight both your palate and senses all at the same time. Here’s why the Flatiron District hotspot should be your next weekend venture.

What happens when you combine a world class chef with one of the most prestigious culinary hotspots in Manhattan? You get Iron Chef Marc Forgione and Manzo, located inside the world famous vibrant Italian marketplace Eataly. The butcher-themed restaurant just announced they will be kicking off a chef collaboration series that will take place over the next six months. For the month of November, it’s Marc’s turn.
There are a ton of sports bars in Manhattan, all kind of with this whole “run of the muck” situation in that it’s hard to differentiate one from another. Atwood Sports Bar & Lounge does that and then some, as they are able to take what is commonly referred to as “bar food” and elevate it to levels that you stop feeling like you are in a sports bar and start feeling like you are dining on some delicious, mouthwatering and sophisticated options.
It’s a pretty amazing accomplishment when you can claim something for your own in Manhattan, and 212 Steakhouse has that with it being the only restaurant to serve authentic Kobe beef. That’s not a bad feat, given how many steakhouses and “meat” related places there are in NYC, and after I stopped by there with a friend last week to experience 212 in all its glory, I can truly say that you should stop there for the Kobe… and so much more.
