Left to himself it’s clear Russian restauranteur Andrey Dellos will go high Baroque with lots of gold, opulence and grandiose decadence.
But his first attempt at that bombed on him, namely his Pushkin Restaurant in Midtown West. Wisely he folded his tent, brought on a chef and Manager who can read the New York pulse to perfection and transformed Pushkin into Betony and it has been a real hit with New Yorkers for its great food and service. It’s thoroughly recommended.
But he still yearns for as much glittery over the top Baroque as he can get and he has fulfilled that in his venture opened at the same time as Betony, Manon in the Meatpacking district.
The cool young things that prowl this area mostly frequent this huge 3 floored restaurant/bar as the night gets older and bolder, drinking cocktails, listening to or dancing to the DJ’s and doing the things that cool young things do together.
Earlier in the evening less boisterous types settle in for a good meal and the reviews of the food and service range mostly at the very good end with some criticisms of both from time to time.
Want to feel you’re in the lap of luxury and glitz, then go to Manon at the time of night that suits you. LIKE people who take a risk in New York.
