Sting has a new holiday record out called If On A Winter’s Night and frankly, it’s amazing as he makes winter music with acoustic, folk, world, and classical elements to really capture the season. Plus, when are you ever going to get a chance again to see Sting at a venue like the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine? While Swizz Restaurant & Wine Bar has an extensive wine menu and a downstairs cave, it’s the cheese that people come here for. 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.
