The Wordless Music Series brings the worlds of classical and rock music together. Tonight, catch Brad Lubman conduct several pieces with the Wordless Music Orchestra including Popcorn Superhet Receiver for string orchestra written by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood. While Swizz has an extensive wine menu and a downstairs cave, it’s the cheese that people come here for. Fondue lovers, Swizz is the place to go and the menu is just as extensive as its wine. It’s romantic and cheesy. Get it! Café des Artistes is one of those old historic bars that’s as New York as it gets. This bar/restaurant was the meeting place of artists going all the way back to 1917. Today, it serves up new American dishes and cocktails to those in the know. To soothe your sweet tooth, check the uptown location of Magnolia Bakery and sink your teeth into one of the city’s best cupcakes.
