The Daily Shortlist January 4
Kevin Spacey returns to the screen in Casino Jack, which is based on the true story of disgraced American lobbyist Jack Abramoff. At Reel Pieces: Kevin Spacey, the Oscar-winning actor will be interviewed by “Reel Pieces” moderator Annette Insdorf. While Swizz has an extensive wine menu and a downstairs cave, it’s the cheese that people come here for. Fondue lovers, Swizz Restaurant & Wine Bar 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.
