The Daily Shortlist April 17
The 60s were a crazy time, and the art was no different. In New York it was the Fluxus movement that was experimenting and making big waves. From Fluxus to Media Art focuses on the history of media art during that period, featuring works by Jonas Mekas, Andy Warhol, and Nam June Paik among others. Cookshop offers American fare blending fresh and healthy ingredients. Try the Five Grain Risotto with Oregon black trumpet mushrooms, crème fraiche, and fried sage ($20). All wood and brick, The Half King is a great bar in Chelsea, minus the attitude its neighboring bars have. Grab a draft beer for $7 or a burger among other great menu items. If you’re fanatical about your coffee, Café Grumpy is your place to get some of the city’s best. The coffee’s are brewed to order and the espresso drinks are out of this world. I highly recommend this place.
