The Daily Shortlist December 22
Pianist Gloria Cheng stops by (Le) Poisson Rouge, one of the better of the new music venues that have opened in NYC lately, to perform compositions off her Grammy-nominated CD Piano Music by Salonen, Stucky & Lutoslawski, putting her own spin on three of contemporary music’s best composer’s. A feat that Cheng can no doubt do with eloquence and virtuosity. A little known sushi joint, Koo Sushi offers affordable and fantastic fish with an impressive number of specialty rolls. For a bar that looks like any other, Blind Tiger Ale House offers an impressive number of beers including draught, bottled, cask and one called Louise’s Bloody Beer. Try it if you dare! If you’re in the mood for some comfort food, Peanut Butter & Co., offers some PB heavy hitters like the Elvis, a PB, banana, and bacon sandwich that tastes better than it sounds.
