The Daily Shortlist November 12
An Evening With the Believer features odd-ball McSweeney’s magazine The Believer’s editor’s Ed Park and Heidi Julavits hosting a night of fiction they admire with works by Julia Slavin and Breece D’J Pancake being read by Stephen Lang and Alec Baldwin. 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.
